I used to live but a mile from this house, and it is very nice-BUT, with a short trip to Baltimore, do you have a specific interest in seeing this type of site, i.e, Colonial-era/Georgian architecture? It is easy access from the GW Parkway, but I wouldn't categorize it as "close" to the BWI airport, as in, "we are right here-we might as well." Also note it is in the wrong direction from Baltimore.
Take note that traffic can be terrible certain times of day, so depending on when you land, you may not want to be heading towards D.C. Since I no longer live in that neck of the woods, I can't attest to commuter trends nowadays, but others will.
I suggest you check their website for other activities for the time you think you would visit. The grounds are used often for events, festivals, weddings, etc.
Wow. Interesting post.
I live about 5 miles away. I can think of about 10,000 other things I'd rather do within an hour of BWI. But I'm not you.
Non-rush to Laurel is about 20-25 min. But rush hour 6-10 am and 3-7 pm can turn a 45 min round trip into a 90 minute trip!
Thanks both of you for the replies. And yes, my interests are in architecture, historic homes, etc. Just wanted to compare it with other homes...If we go, I'll post a review.
Hi, just a quick update. We saw the Mansion from a distance only - it was closed on Saturday. Anyway, we visited the Cryptologic Museum which was a lot of fun; still working on the review. Plan to visit the Montpelier Mansion in the spring...
