I am one of the fortunate ones in that I live reasonably close to River Farm and can & have visited frequently over the past 10 years. I can directly relate to my title "Beauty in the Fall, Spring, Summer and Winter." My last visit was on November 17th, 2016 and it was breathtaking with the transition from Fall to... 更多
I discovered River Farm, home of the American Horticultural Society, when I visited it as a possible wedding venue for my daughter. A short drive along the Potomac River on the GW Parkway (minutes out of Old Town Alexandria), you enter through a low fence onto beautiful grounds (planted yet very natural-looking), lovely flowers and trees, overlooking the river. Walk... 更多
How nice to hear the story of your initial visit here as a wedding planning mother, and your return visits... 更多
River Farm is a lovely place to visit. Their outdoor gardens are absolutely lovely. I recommend taking a picnic with you as there are not any eateries there. Only downside is that they have limited hours so check the website before you visit.
We're delighted that you enjoyed your visit here! And we agree -- River Farm is an ideal place for a... 更多
The historical setting and setting for weddings are mentioned by several reviewers. We recently visited with our daughter and young grandchildren and were impressed by the beauty and charm of this peaceful oasis. The garden is small but exquisite, and there are lots of beautiful walkways, shady trees, and park benches that entice lingering. The garden has shaded picnic tables... 更多

We came here today for the annual garden and flower show sponsored by River Farm's owner, the American Horticulture Society. The mansion has a very pleasant exterior and some very attractive rooms that are well appointed with period furniture and objects of art. The home is good sized but it is not a mansion. The home is situated on 25... 更多

I had a picture in my mind of colonial era agriculture, gardens, etc. I shouldn't have. Our visit was a bit early in the year to take advantage of some of the strengths this place must have. A large meadow made for wildflower blooms wasn't near bloom. The small garden area was getting its annuals planted during our visit. But... 更多

River Farm is a rarity - property owned by George Washington and now open to the public during business hours. One of the things that makes River Farm special is the children's garden - a gem within this jewel which will give children and families the opportunity to explore, hide, discover and experience a garden which is designed with their... 更多

My husband and I had an unexpected day off. We packed a lunch and sat in the beautiful gardens of River Farm to spend some uninterrupted time together. The grounds are beautiful with a lovely view of the Potomac. When my girls were younger we frequently spent time in the children's area.
Thank you for letting us know you enjoyed your peaceful, riverside picnic here! 更多
We attended an intimate Fall Wedding at this venue and it was amazing! The only caveat is that parking seemed limited, so the venue is probably best for weddings of 100 guests or less.
Thank you for your kind words about River Farm! We can accommodate up to 200 guests, and we have parking... 更多
Attended a wedding there. Very nice place. If it's hot, you will be cooler because of the landscaping, but you will eventually get hot too.
Thank you for commenting about River Farm! Yes, even our garden warms up on hot days in the summer. That's... 更多
