History

This mansion's construction was completed in 1759. It was crafted for George Mason IV. This example of Georgian style has hardly changed over the years save for some modern updates to its antiquated systems. It was constructed by two Englishmen who brought over design and architecture elements popular in London at the time. A large number of Mason pieces still remain at the mansion, showcasing the lives of the family during their stay in the house from 1759 to 1792. The home stayed in the family until 1867.

Beautiful and Historic!

My husband and I can't say enough good things about working with Nicole and choosing Gunston Hall for our wedding. It was the best decision we made for our wedding, and in all honesty we didn't ... Read more seriously consider any other venue. Gunston Hall stole our hearts! All of our guests thought the property was beautiful, and Nicole went above and beyond to help us. We had our ceremony in the afternoon, and right after the ceremony ended we were able to take photos inside the historic house itself. Once we were done with photos inside the house, our guests could take a tour of the house before going to the courtyard for a cocktail hour while the bride and groom took more couple photos outside among the beautiful trees. To go back to the planning, Nicole met with us several times in the course of our engagement, helped us figure out the best place to hold the various parts of our day (we did both our ceremony and reception on site), was incredibly responsive via email, and helped with set-up and breakdown of our wedding. We had our wedding ceremony outside under the big oak tree, cocktail reception in the courtyard, and dinner inside in the Ann Mason Room. The weather cooperated and we were able to have everything go as planned, but it was reassuring to know that there was a viable indoor option if we needed to move the ceremony inside.

We LOVED Gunston Hall, and especially Nicole, our main contact there. We chose it because it had an indoor option in case of rain, but luckily were able to go with plan A and be outside overlooking ... Read more the river and under the big tree near the house. Their team was wonderful - I loved that the chairs and tables and setup were included, that we had a shorter time option (5 hours was plenty for our small 68 person wedding!), and of course being able to have such a gorgeous backdrop for our ceremony and reception. Their vendor recommendations were so helpful, the getting ready rooms are perfect, and the location feels quiet and away from the sounds of highways and the city. Thank you, GH!
