“Wide Open Area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Wide Open Area... not much else. Nothing really to discuss. The picture of the old mansion is great, good luck timing a tour of though.

“A great Historic Mansion Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

If you like history, and well preserved and well kept mansions, don't miss this one! The approximate 45 minute to 1 hour tour was very well done and the mansion is filled with a collection of unique and beautful furnishing from all over the world including a few pieces and tapestries from at least one European castle. The separate carriage collection is also well presented and interesting, and a few reproductions of Civil War Soldier Huts is also worth 'a look.' Overall, my wife and I spent a couple of very interesting and well worth hours here and the cost was very very reasonable! We'd like to visit again at Christmas when they'll have the house decorated as it may have appeared during the holidays in the 1920's.

“Beautiful and interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Grounds are beautiful, nice place to picnic or go on a stroll. I hear they do weddings, they would be gorgeous. House is pretty and tour was interesting, story of the owners.

“Interesting and educational”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Tucked away in a corner of Leesburg is Morven Park. The property is very nice and well maintained, and offers a good opportuinty for a relaxing afternoon walk. The tour of the mansion is about 45-60 minutes long, very well conducted and related, and offers a good recount on what the owners of this mansion must have gone through from its beginning until now--a combination of art and history.With original furniture and well preserved rooms, the mansion is worth a visit to learn more about American history and in particular, Virginia. By stepping into each room, you can appreciate the history of this family and its predecessors, and learn about what was going on in Virginia and in America in those years, and how people managed back in those days.

We did not do the carriage tour but only the house. The fee is very small ($5/house) and if you have AAA, you can get a $1 discount. Well worth our time and money.
