My family and I visited the cottage last week, and we truly enjoyed it. Our tour guide was fantastic. This place is a gem, and it should be preserved. We have young kids, and it was a wonderful experience for them.

This was the favorite for my whole family including our 10 year old son! I highly suggest adding this to your DC vacation schedule! Our tour guide was fantastic! She was very enthusiastic about the history of the home and Lincoln! MUST SEE!! Will definitely return!

Our guide was absolutely fantastic! He brought Lincoln to life by sharing stories throughout the house. The style of the tour was not what we had expected, but as my son described, it was “so cool”. He had a lot of passion and it showed. We learned so much!

The tour was great. The tour guide and the gentleman that worked in the giftshop were incredibly knowledgeable and generous with their time. We went during a slow period-11am on a weekday. Two adults and three children (8, 8, and 5) The tour guide kept the kids engaged by asking thought provoking questions which linked the cottage, events happening at the time of Lincoln’s presidency, and life in general at that time. He also told us many interesting facts about Lincoln’s life. It was a memorable history lesson for us all. Make sure you hit the gift shop when you go. Lots of great things. We will return.
