I am a firm believer that the best way to learn history is to experience it. I visited here with my 2 teenage daughters on a recent visit to Regent. Our guide was very informative and interesting. She gave an extensive history of the area as well as the home itself. It is fascinating to know that the homes is... More

Our docent gave an excellent tour, really made the history of the house and family interesting. If you like historic houses see this one. If you have enough time there is a combo ticket available that includes 2 additional properties.

Lynnhaven House is a prime example of life in 1730. Guided tours are available through this beautifully maintained and furnished period home. You can still see some if the design use of glazed brick

I had so much fun on this beautiful historic house tour. A great way to spend a couple hours relaxing off the beaten path. The house tour is so interesting, guide very knowledgeable and friendly. I love hearing about life way back when. There's a beautiful herb garden maintained by the Garden Society.

I love the new educational center that is connected with Lynnhaven House. We had a fabulous tour guide and learned so much about the local history! A wonderful stop even in the rain!

I went there 30 years ago. The men dressed in uniforms and pretend to fight, and the women cooking food was all very nice and was a great added attraction. Need to have more of it now and then. Everything was great. Would not mind going again for an event.

First of all, I don't understand why there are food reviews earlier on this page, as this is not a restaurant! Rather, it's an excellently preserved middle-class dwelling built in the 1720's by a Huguenot family. The docent who showed us the house had a fine balance in her talk between facts about the architecture of the house and about... More

If you are a history buff and are in Virginia Beach, this is a must see site. I've been going there since 1984 and love how it has grown with an educational and visitors center and outside oven.

The tour of this house built in the 1700's was interesting. We learned a lot about the architecture, building nethods, and lifestyle. You can get a combination ticket to see two other old homes. Well worth the time if you like history.
