Good tour of the Lee Family Plantation that dates back to the pre-American Revolutionary War (which the Lee's fought in for American Independence) to the present (as a Historic Site). Although Robert E. Lee moved out at the age of 4, the plantation stayed in...More

Wandering around the neck of VA, we happened on this quite by accident. Herculean effort by dedicated group who refused to see it fall down, now a treasure. Interesting story of the rise and fall of the financial fortunes of the Lee family.

This site, the birthplace of Robert E. Lee, is worth the 45 minute drive from Fredricksburg, but don't expect to be Wowed. The house is in a state of restoration and needs a lot of financial support to be fully restored to the excellence it...More

We spent a whole day doing the house tour and exploring the grounds. The guide was quite knowledgeable and made the Lee family story come alive. BTW, Robert E Lee was only a very small part of this plantation story. Don't stay only around the...More

The museum is nice; not only do they give a background of the Lee Clan since several generations lived here, but they talk about the restoration process as well. It was restored in the early 1900's but they are in the process of restoring the...More

OK, this is not Versailles, or Biltmore House, or the Hearst Mansion folks. And they do charge a $12 adult entry fee which I believe has been calibrated to cover necessary costs by the private group that runs the very large (1900 acre) property. But...More

We went there from Fredericksburg. While we enjoyed our visit, it took an hour each way and I guess we expected more. This is the childhood home of Lee. It was an interesting home and tour, and there are out buildings as well. Our visit...More

No, but check their website.
My husband and I are planning a trip to Stratford Hall this October and was wondering if anyone knew of a Marriott hotel that was within a 45 minute drive? We have Marriott points to use which is why I'm interested in staying there. Thanks for any help you might provide.
