We did the trio of historic homes which were: Lynnhaven, Francis Land and Adam Thoroughgood. If you love stepping into the past circa early 1700's and one is early 1800's it will be a treat. The tours were educational and fun. The grounds had their own stories. Very reasonably priced.

My husband and I took a tour of this house last year and had quite an enjoyable time. The staff was very friendly and informative. We enjoyed it enough that we have been visiting the other historical homes, too.

Glad to see from some of the reviews that the reviewers don't pay very close attention. This is not the Lynnhaven Fish House as some have written about, but rather a 1725 historical home. Went here after visiting the Thorogood House. The house does not have the same elaborate gardens and is lacking in the details that the Thorogood House... More

I went here with my boyfriend on our trip to Virginia Beach because it seemed like a cool tourist attraction, and it was affordable! As college students, we paid only $5 to view not only this house, but it included the Francis Land house, and the Adam Thoroughgood house. A pretty great price to visit three houses in my opinion!...

This was the third house on the combo tour -- $7.00 each for seniors for all three homes. This house you could go upstairs to view the rooms. Each home is unique, full of history. ll in the period of 1600 - 1730 circa. The docents for each one are very knowledgeable. This one had a sense of humor as... More

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!
