Loved this so much! Would go again in a heartbeat! I would not, however, recommend the National Treasure tour, unless you want just more details about the estate. Still, most of what was discussed in the tour can be learned on one's own if you...More
Beautiful home and estate overlooking the Potomac River. Knowledgeble tour guides in period dress. The only downfall would be the need for golf cart or some type of transport for those with difficulty walking. Walkways are uneven and steep in places.
