  • Quiet side trip. House is very large for the time built and hearing history is so interesting. Have made 2 trips and enjoyed each time. Visit will take 1 to 2 hours, depending how much of a history buff you are. My grandkids have been here multiple times and had been here when their are activities for children and adults.
  • Wonderful trip through history! Gunston Hall has a beautiful interior with every attempt made to maintain the original 18th century appearance. I will definitely visit again soon!
  • I don't think I've visited Gunston Hall and ever seen it busy. It's a really nice place to walk around and the view towards the river is very nice. Some may not notice but walk a bit towards the right from the house and you'll come to a small cemetery and memorial.
  • A beautiful house full of history.
  • Great tour, wonderful house, no crowds. Maybe we hit it just right but there were no crowds. Perhaps MT Vernon is the big draw in the area, but I liked Gunston Hall more.
