I was part of a wedding here a couple weeks ago. The set-up for the wedding, in the lawn by James Monroe's statue, was a beautiful back-drop for a wedding. The outdoor pavilion is a convenient place for a reception with ample room for a decent sized (~100 person) reception.
The house itself is quite small. Be sure to duck when entering to avoid hitting your head. The tour guides will make sure you are aware of the obstacle.
The tour guide we had was quite knowledgable and was able to speak to more than just the decor of the house and provide insight into James Monroe as a person.
This home is a stark contrast to Monticello. The house is small and the decor is simple. But it feels much more like a home than Monticello.
Definitely worth a couple hours, especially when it is only a couple miles from Monticello
