Oatlands is a beautiful home and grounds with a wonderful garden and history but doesn't seem to be managed very well as far as touring. There is one tour per day for the enslaved quarters, hourly tours of the main house and everything else is self guided from a crummy little photocopied paper. Our tour guide while very knowledgable about... More

Oatlands is beautiful. Considering it runs on donations and mostly volunteer staff it is a well maintained and clean attraction. The Manor house is absolutely beautiful although a tad dusty. The little gift shop had lots of lovely knick knacks but a bit pricey. The Afternoon Tea in the Carriage House was also pleasant. I felt that USD 28.95 per... More

We stopped by there one Sunday and had a wonderful time. The gardens are amazing and the tour of the mansion was wonderful and informative. The gift shop and mtg room was so quaint and welcoming. Walk the grounds, take the tour and save time for your own picnic on the grounds!

Beautiful, steeped in the local history of Loudoun County Virginia. I remember it as a kid before all the houses, and growth came to Loudoun. However, it remains one of the must do's.

We followed GPS and entered a different section of the plantation and encountered a very rude cartridge driver. It seems this place is badly managed.

Oatlands is a great spot to see the western virginia countryside, see a historic house, and also see some very nice gardens. The house is well maintained in a picturesque area and has ample parking and a separate gift shop. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly. Recommended for folks who like gardens, history, stately homes, and countryside. It is not... More

We enjoyed a lovely tour of the old mansion, and took advantage of the PYO (pick your own) strawberries which are now in season. The strawberries are a bit pricey....but the pure sweetness makes it well worth it. We will certainly revisit!

The guided tour by Regan was relaxed but informative. The home is very beautiful and well decorated with historic trinkets related to those who lived there. The garden is beautifully maintained and was relaxing to walk through.

Oatlands Plantation not only offers tours of the historic house and gardens, but on certain days, it offers an afternoon tea in the carraige house. My daughter, sister, son-in-law, and myself have enjoyed many afternoon teas over the years and strongly suggest you try one. They offer the typical teas and foods for your enjoyment. Following the tea, take a... More

Having been a few times, once during the Christmas holidays, once in the summer, and once off-season winter; I can share that no much changes from season to season. Depending on which manor tour director is working the day you visit, one receives a different family historical perspective. A chronological history of the well-do-family in the early 1900's is interesting... More
