Comments from Tea Party 2016:
"I came with my two sisters, niece, daughter, mother, and two mothers-in-law (so, 8 of us) for a tea party followed by a fragrance-crafting lesson. We were greeted warmly, entertained in a comfortable dining room filled with fun antiques, and then guided through some basic aromatherapy and fragrance crafting. It was all very cozy and comforting, and "kid-friendly" would be an understatement. My 11-year-old niece and 7-year-old daughter were made to feel very welcome, and the ladies who served us and showed us around were kind and patient, especially with the girls. We all spent a ton of money in the gift shop before leaving (because there was so much cool stuff, not because it was expensive...The tea party and class are clearly designed to introduce visitors to the spices, cosmetics, and other treats they sell in the gift shop, but that suited us perfectly. No one comes off as pushy and everything really will make lovely gifts. We were happy to support these hardworking folks and we'll definitely be back."
Comments from Season 2017:
"Such a therapeutic time at this place. There's a small gift shop filled with lavender lotion, perfume, room spray, tea, soaps and cute items. I appreciate how everything was organized and staffed. The staff were super nice and helpful. There's clean portapotties and a cute play area for kids. There's also lawn chairs to relax and picnic tables. I got to pick my own fresh lavender and herbs for a small, small price, too good to be true. I highly recommend this place if you are into nature, likes herbs and just want to get some new scenery from the busy DC routine. I shall return soon."

Double check your automated route on a map...sometimes folks are sent into a cul de sac in Gainesville by the dratted directions apps.
We're really an easy drive from the greater DC metro, Fredericksburg, or from Central VA. If you are coming out via Rt. 29 South...stay on it until you take a left on Rt. 605 "Dumfries Road". Then take a right on Rt. 603/Greenwich Road and go almost two miles at which point it will turn into Old Dumfries Road as you bear left on a curve and driveway will be 100 yards beyond on left. If you are coming via Rt. 28 South then turn right at the light at Catlett onto our road and proceed two miles and driveway will be on the right. (Address: 8769 Old Dumfries Road, Catlett, VA20119)
