The property sits on a great piece of land and the walking trails are lovely. The house tour was so so as the home is not furnished and the tour is very short

Visited in COVID December 2020, so upstairs of the house were closed to visitors. Took the River Walk down to the river - probably 30-40 min walk though a surprisingly lovely piece of woodland. Trail is unimproved and unfit for strollers, wheelchairs. Trail could be slick in wet times. There are 2 bridges over the stream which flows over a largely sandy bottom. Expansive views across the Potomac. SIgnificant stands of Mountain Laurel, large Beech, poplar. Will definitely re-visit in the spring for this walk!

The main house is under going renovations so the groupon was perfect. If I paid full price I would have felt cheated.

Gunston Hall, the home of George Mason, is well worth a visit. The exhibits in the visitor center about George Mason and his achievements are well done. Visitors also have the opportunity to take a tour of the home from a docent and explore various outbuildings and the grounds of the home.

About Gunston Hall

As the Potomac River flows in the distance, George Mason’s historical Georgian mansion overlooks sprawling fields, hiking trails, and a 250-year-old boxwood allée. A senior statesman, Mason laid the foundation for this site in 1755, building his new family home just yards away from the site of his grandfather’s house. Though the original 18th-century carriage roads, tree banks, and wide vistas have since disappeared, experts have reconstructed much of the property’s original splendor through archaeological digs; the written memoirs of George’s son, John; and the testimonials of kidnapped time travelers.

Today, trained guides lead guests on tours of the mansion, which features more than 50 pieces of art and furnishings detailing the life of the politician, his wife Ann, and their family. As guests learn about Mason’s role as the author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights and as an advocate of freedom of the press and religious tolerance, they walk through opulent halls and rooms designed in French modern, neoclassical, and Chinese styles. In addition to tours, the house and grounds host seasonal events such as an old-fashioned candlelit Christmas celebration, a spring kite festival, and an autumn séance to summon the Great Pumpkin.
