‪I visited River Farm recently after a friend told me about their beautiful gardens. Well she wasn’t kidding. It is charming and delightful - a gardener’s paradise. It’s just off of the GW Parkway on your way to Mount Vernon. They are rolling hills, meticulous gardens and a view of the Potomac River. Just lovely. ‬

‪Was at this location for a wedding. Very nice‬
אוג׳ 2019
‪I was at this property in August 2019 for a wedding. This was a very nice venue for the wedding. Scenic gardens and views of the water. The historic farmhouse was open for self tours during the wedding. A tent was set up behind the house to accommodate all the guests. Hats off to the historical society, who maintains the property !‬

‪Could Have Been Better, But‬

‪We had a good time. There was no one around, either in the gardens or in the house to talk with. However, we nosed around and a good time. We will return to see more of the gardens. The house was pretty neat, and I’d like to know more which is why we will return.‬

‪Beautiful site ‬
יוני 2019
‪This place could be a showcase as it’s located just down the road from Mount Vernon and near Washington DC. Parking spaces are limited. When walking the grounds the ground is very uneven definitely not handicapped friendly. There are some steep inclines. The views of the Potomac River are over grown with limited vision of the river. This is the headquarters of the American Horticultural Society I expected more. None of the plants or trees are labeled as to species. ‬

‪Back to River Farm (American Horticultural Society) again‬
לבד • נוב׳ 2018
‪You may get tired of reading my reviews of The American Horticultural Society at River Farm, however I never get tired of visiting River Farm. I live near Alexandria, VA and one my most favorite places to visit is River Farm and has been for over a decade.
I love taking photographs and particularly that of the beauty of nature at different times of the year, under different light conditions and the familiar and new plants.There has been a recent turnover in some of the personnel at River Farm, however I am always happy to see that the dedication and skill is always of the highest caliber. My last visit to date was last month (November 2018.) I'll show you some of the pictures from this visit.‬

‪We walked down the bank of the Potomac River to a shady grove to classical tunes played by a trio hidden under a large tree. The wedding procession followed, with an inspiring ceremony. As we returned to the tented patio, guests shared catered canapes and drinks.A lavish dinner, tears and laughter over speehes by wedding party, and dancing and Carrot Cake.‬

‪If you need a break from city crowds or have any interest in gardens or photography or nature this is worth an hour or two on your itinerary. It’s located between Mt Vernon and Old Town (both of which should also be on your itinerary). The views of the river are enjoyable to just sit and watch the birds and boats and planes. The gardens are lovely to walk through, with several benches to stop and enjoy the view. I was first here on a sunny weekday in February with a gardener friend and we enjoyed exploring the grounds, and even in winter the trees and gardens had their own interest and made for an enjoyable walk. Came back for the spring garden sale and the flowers blooming in the gardens were so pretty. Lots of great nature photo ops (my teen is into photography and didn’t want to leave). Planning to visit again in fall with a picnic to see the leaves changing color along the river. As others have said, this is a hidden gem many locals don’t know about. ‬

‪I keep returning to River Farm‬
לבד • מאי 2018
‪My last visit was this past week....I KEEP RETURNING TO RIVER FARM! That should give you an idea of how much I enjoy each experience. And...each visit is an experience in itself. Nature is dynamic and those at River Farm who are responsible for this treasure are totally involved with enhancements and continual care throughout the seasons..
Nature, Horticulture and photography go hand in hand as pleasures in my life. River Farm offers all in addition to friendships developed over the years with staff and volunteers.
Thank You to the American Horticultural Society and River Farm....Jim‬

‪Close to Alexandria, situated above the Potomac with a great view - well worth dropping in. We went because the Horticultural Society was having a plant sale, very glad we did. What a great history: once one of George Washington's estates, private home for decades (the Wellington), almost a Soviet embassy, now the home of the American Horticultural Society. Beautiful flowers and vistas, no wonder it is so poplar for weddings.‬

‪Beautiful art shows, revolving around horticulture grace George Washington's former property. Besides an ancient Osage orange tree, River Farm boasts a splendid garden and view of the grand Potomac River. It is a must visit! Closed on Sundays, though...‬
