Having been to Monticello many times and also to Montpelier (President Madison's house), I visited Ash-Lawn on a recent trip to C'ville. It's completely different than the others, as it's a farm house with bland outside appeal. Inside, however, reveals some beautiful and original furniture belong to President Monroe. The tour guide also provide a good history lesson. In short, if you're looking for another place to visit to complement a trip to Monticello, Ash Lawn is worth the short extra distance to drive.
