Informative tour and good use of audio/visual effects. Nicely told story. Could do without so much of the questions - “what do you think?” Etc that is in vogue in interpretive tourism today. Visitor center was well sized and a good complement. Highly recommend!

Outstanding tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and really interested in sharing that knowledge with us. There are stories about Lincoln told in every room. He spent about 14 months of this term at this house, so it was a big part of his family's life.

HINT ON DIRECTIONS: DO NOT LET YOUR GPS TAKE A SHORTCUT ON HAREWOOD. It goes to a back gate that isn't always open. Stay on Rock Creek Church Road. There's a restaurant across the street called the Hitching Post, and they sometimes tell visitors to put that in their GPS. The entrance is at the intersection with Upshur.

This was my second visit. Our first visit was just post-COVID and guided tours were not offered at that time (although we able to walk through house and ask questions), but we were so impressed we decided to tour again this month--this time with Jacob, the historic interpreter on site. He was simply amazing! Jacob spoke for 90 minutes with such fluency about the history of Lincoln and the property--it was like the best long TED talk ever! We've lived in NoVa our entire lives and this is our favorite historic spot to visit and recommend to others. Don't miss it!
P.S. If you know someone who has lost a child of any age, don't miss the special exhibit about parental grief, drawn from the experiences of Mary Todd and Abe Lincoln.

This historic spot is tucked away in the district's northern region, near the National Catholic Basilica. It's located on the grounds of a military retirement home and tours must be reserved in advance (they often sell out, too).

Lincoln and his family spent time here following the death of their young son William. He also worked on some of the most important projects of his presidency at the site.

The rooms are empty of furnishings though the architecture is intact. The guides bring the imagery to life with stories of the presidential residence over a hundred years ago. I could picture a lawn full of encamped Union soldiers while the President visited with them on a regular basis.

There is also an informative exhibit in the visitors center, which includes a piece on grieving and letting go, as the Lincoln family must have done during their time here.

Nearby are an historic cemetery which I didn't have time to see, and The Hitching Post restaurant, a DC standby for great Southern fare.

I didn't even know this place existed, and I'm so glad I found it. It dates back to the civil war - it's a walk back in time. The tour is excellent, very informative; our tour guide was Wesley. I had no idea Lincoln spent so much time there, and the emotions that were involved as to WHY he spent time there. There's also historical significance. Don't miss this gem!

I had heard about this home a few years ago and was determined to visit it while we were in D.C. In fact, because of a special event being held at the cottage, we changed our plans around, so we could go on a different day.

We were not disappointed.

Yes, the house only has limited furnishings. But, the guides are what make the visit special and unique. Can you imagine Lincoln and Sec. of War Stanton chasing after and carrying Tad's peacocks in their arms because the birds got tangled up in a series of bushes and trees?

I always enjoy a good story that makes great historical figures into understandable neighbors. Going to the Lincoln Summer Cottage is a perfect vehicle for this!

This was a wonderful surprise. It was part of the Soldier’s Home and very well restored. The cottage was much bigger than expected. Our tour included many rooms including Lincoln’s bedroom. Our guide, Paul, told us many stories of Lincoln’s time in the cottage. He was well versed in Civil War history which enhanced the visit. There was a very nice visitors center as well. I would definitely recommend this hidden gem.

Our Uber driver had some trouble finding this place on his GPS, and they have a security check before you enter, so you may have to have your ID ready to show. The tour last a little over an hour, and it was interesting to learn more about Lincoln's summer residence while he was President, and the things that happened in this cottage. Our guide Paul was very informative, and he actually did encourage us to participate by asking us questions about how we felt about some of the things that happened during that time, or what we would have done if we were in Lincoln's shoes. Photos aren't allowed in the house, but the rooms themselves are empty, so there actually isn't much to see physically inside. But the tour held my attention throughout. There are some exhibits in the visitor's center you can read through after the tour as well.

The traffic is bad but just go to the cottage and take the tour! We had Josie and she was wonderful. Learned a lot about the family and history surrounding it. I have seen some negative “Nancy” comments about how empty the cottage was and your not there for the furniture you are there for the history the family had at the home. It’s beautiful and the guest area and gift shop has wonder information about everything. The loss and grief exhibit for those who have lost children or loved ones is absolutely breath taking. The emotions felt in that room I can’t explain it. Just go visit and see for yourself
It’s not a waste of time like some reviews are saying
It’s history
