Nothing special, over priced, food is average and the service is OK. Have not been there really since 2005 truthfully because I have never been impressed with there food.

If you are picky about fresh seafood, you need to come here. Water, bay views, baby ducks walking around outside, other folks enjoying themselves. Starbucks across the street.

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!
