“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

We loved the environment of the Birthplace. The gift "shop" was compact but had many choices. The ground were very neat and we especially enjoyed the memorial house. We didn't get to the family cemetary but we'll do that on a future visit. Staff were great.

“Visit to do it, don't expect much”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

For anyone interested in the life and times of George Washington this is a must- see, but be warned that there just isn't much to see. Considering that it is a rather long way from anywhere else, you have to really be interested to make the trip worth while.

“Unexpected”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

We had no idea what to expect especially when we drove down a lonely road and came upon a small scale version of the Washington Monument. We were pleasantly surprised though to find a very well thought out park that had places to picnic, interesting history, a museum, lovely roads canopied with trees and a great view of the Potomac River.
