“A Great Place in the Middle of A Very Busy Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The buildings are in great shape and well maintained. The Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Hard to believe this is in such a busy area in Northern Virginia. It was scheduled to be demolished, but was saved by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority in 1959. Well worth a visit to the past.

“Worth a Visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Handsome historical home in northern Virginia built by one of the Lee family. Knowledgeable docents, and reasonably priced especially considering the cost of upkeep must be. Not big, but a nice taste of local and national history.

“Historical Interest Site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great place for families to visit. It has historical significance in the region and has guides and demonstrations. On weekends they often host special seasonal events or car shows. It is also very close to the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center, featuring aircraft from the early days of flight right up to the space shuttle.

“Great Tour of the Plantation House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very knowledgeable staff. The tour was great and they were good with children. There is also plenty of open space for kids to run and explore some of the out-buildings on their own. It's certainly a place we go back to on a regular basis. They also have a bunch of special events, but beware these can get very crowded. I've seen the traffic really backed up for things like a Classic Cars event.

“Pretty basic but OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Went to Sully expecting a version of the plantations in the deeper south. Sully was pretty much like a northern farm house as it was built in Federalist style vs Colonial. The property has all of the plantation elements, e.g. house, detached kitchen, smokehouse, dairy, school and slave quarters, but lacked any grandeur. The history of the place was interesting, dating back to the mid-1700's. Some of the house artifacts were of note as originals. A tour of the house provided but there was no access to the other buildings. Overall it is worth the fee for a one hour tour.
