We took an excursion here on our Christmas cruise. I highly recommend it! I did not know the significance of this on our USA history! George lived here for 6 weeks. We also went into the tunnels...worth the visit.

The visit starts with a good video overview of the island in the 18th century and of the visit of the Washington brothers, who stayed there for some months. The house is charming and well furnished with period pieces including clothes and papers. Upstairs is...More

It would be a 2.3 mile walk and you would need about 90 minutes to do the House and tunnels.
