“Beautiful Anntibellum Plantation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Beautiful in any season, spring brings the flowers and Christmas is special with the decorations for the season. There are many special events held here but the Home is histroicaly significant and worth the visit if you are in the area. I can easiely be part of a day of wineries and history tours. I live very near here and I always bring visitors.

“A visit to the Past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you're a history buff, this is tour for you. Only the most beautifully maintained mansions in the Leesburg area and the gardens are well manicured. The rolling hillside and the mountains off in the distance are a picturesque setting for this old plantation. A nice stop along the way.

“Beautiful old mansion.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is not a huge plantation with outbuildings, but the house is lovely. The tours are well done and the gardens are beautiful. Beware during the summer...it gets hot!

“A rich plantation experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This post-Revolution mansion, with its delightful lgardens and rolling fields, is a jewel in the crown of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Its recently-restored greenhouse is one of the oldest in North America. Oatlands has lots to interest every visitor, from toddlers to seniors.

“Unexpected morning stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Had an incredible morning tour with Jim. We were fortunate to go first thing in the morning, the mansion has no AC. Jim was great, learned a lot about the history of the Mansion and the area. The grounds are great, if it had been cooler we would have spent more time walking around. Definitely worth seeing!
