“A very nice tour”
Review of Abram's Delight

Abram's Delight
Ranked #10 of 48 things to do in Winchester
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 May 2013

My first stop on the triumverate (Abram's Delight, Stonewall Jackson's HQ and Washington's office) was the highlight of the three. The visit round the house and the log cabin was very informative.

We did the multi attraction ticket for Abram's Delight, Stone Wall Jackson's Headquarters and Washington's Office Museum. Abrams Delight is not part of the Old Town like the other two. It is closer a mall, other retail stores and restaurant's. But it was worth going to. The guided tour was very informative and it was very enjoyable if you like history. If you are in the Old Town it is easy to follow the signs to Abram's Delight. We were very impressed with how well directions to the Old Town and other attracations were. They were frequent and easy to spot. It made for an enjoyable visit. We didn't get lost once!

This beautiful limestone structure with 18" thick exterior walls has been wonderfully restored. Tickets to go in were sold in another nearby building, so we went to get our tickets. For $9.00 (senior rate as opposed to $10) we gained entrance to 3 buildings, the one mentioned above, Washington’s Office, and Stonewall Jackson’s Headquarters in Winchester. The docent's narrative of the Abraham Hollingsworth home as we were guided through the home was exceptional. Every question that we asked was answered with courtesy and detailed information. We also visited the primitive cabin which is also found on the property. It was a long but interesting story of how the Hollingsworth's came to the US (they were Quakers), and settled in this area.

It is a beautiful place to visit and explore, and the food is fantastic! A nice, romantic place. Great place for weddings and receptions.

I've stopped at this place several times over the last 10 years. The buildings are impeccably restored and the guides are informative. The lake is full of fish and surrounded by trees and next to the campus of Shenandoah University. A new free museum is also next door. This is a great stop for tourist and a nice day out for locals.
