Love this gorgeous old estate

The self-guided garden tours are a must-see. There are plenty of other activities offered year-round. The gift shop is charming.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to "Christmas at Oatlands" and would like to return during different seasons. Everyone who I interacted with was helpful and friendly. The docent was knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. The Christmas decorations were beautiful, and walking through the house we were able to learn a lot about a good bit of American and Virginia... More

We live in Leesburg, so Oatlands is quite close. It is a great place in the spring, with the gardens in bloom, or at Christmas with all of the decorations up. There is no charge for entry into the grounds, but there is a charge to tour the house. If you are interested in a quiet time, then check their... More

We were the only visitors on a Sunday afternoon. The docent was very knowledgeable about the history of the house and its occupants but not too knowledgeable about the furniture. Most of the furniture is original to the house. In the gardens you can also visit the enclosure where the presedentially pardoned turkies reside.

Outlands is an historic property (private, not associated with the Park Service) off Route 15 near Leesburg, VA. We toured the mansion, which was built in 1804 and renovated in the 1820s to reflect the Greek Revival style. We were able to see both the upstairs and downstairs during a 45-minute informative guided tour. Price of admission was $12 or... More

I attended a wedding at Oatlands and I was shocked at how beautiful it was. I have been to a number of weddings, may of which were black-tie and at five star hotels but this was by-far the prettiest venue I have ever been to. I couldn't stop remarking at how stunning this venue was. The bride had her ceremony,... More

The house was beautiful and full of history, the gardens we we in there fall mode Full of color and the feasts as green as could be. The greenhouse was the second oldest in the country. This should be a too do a sap.

The tour of this beautiful elegant house gives you a lot of detailed information - maybe even too much ! It has been well preserved and the house holds lots of artefacts. The grounds and gardens are lovely to stroll through.
