Had to stop by out of curiosity while staying at the Westmoreland State Park. The grounds and 'Hall' are well preserved and maned by very knowledgeable docents. Provides a good history of the Lee family and what Highbrow Southern living was like a couple hundred years ago. I like to visit places of good architectural samples and this place fits... More

This was our first time visiting this museum. It is very well preserved. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. A visit does require a bit of walking so be prepared. The house is amazing with many artifacts to see. You can also see where there is active restoration and research going on. The grounds are beautiful. They have a... More

Beautiful location with a lot of history. A must for all History Buffs! Stratford Hall really makes you think about how influential the Lee Family have been to our country. It also makes you think about where we would be without the Lees While here, you will also learn a little bit more about how the Lees are connected to... More

We enjoyed our tour of the house, our guide was thorough in her tour. The house has few furnishings but is a lovely home to visit. The grounds are expansive. There are miles of trails, some rugged and some beach areas to look for shark teeth on the Potomac, I don't think swimming is allowed. We stayed on the property... More

The house tour was OK but not all that impressive. The gardens are nice and the slave quarters display is good. Consider visiting the George Washington Birthplace National Monument and James Monroe birthplace just up the road while you're in the area.

During our stay at Harbor View Campground in Colonial Beach, we visited Stratford Hall. Here is a piece of history in the process of restoration. You can walk the grounds and see beautiful architecture still standing after 200 years. The self-guided tour gave very interesting insight as to how the Plantation operated and survived through the years. Using an ipod... More

This is the birth place of Robert E Lee. He lived on this plantation until he was three years old. I came here because I have an uncle who is distantly related to Robert E Lee so I knew he would enjoy the post card but I have to say this was one of the best colonial plantation tours we... More
