We visited this plantation house outside Atlanta, Ga. on our way to the airport for our return trip from the USA. It is a beautiful house in a beautiful setting with the Fall colours in the trees surrounding the property. When we visited it wasn't busy and the guide was able to spend time answering our many questions. There is... More

I love Stately Oaks. It used to be a hospital during the Civil War. It was originally located behind my house where I grew up. It was moved to Jonesboro and restored. My sister, Melanie, was married there. Very old South.

We were greeted by Martha who is a delight. Our tour guide was Ashleigh who is very knowledgeable about the history of the house and land around it. She is a real peach!

Stately Oaks was a very entertaining and informative stop in the Jonesboro area. I feel that the plantation gets overlooked by visitors traveling to the Road to Tara! Do you want to get a feel for a home like TARA? Visit visit visit!

The grounds were somewhat smaller than we were expecting and it wasn't until near the end of the house tour that we learned that it had actually been relocated from its original position. Must admit to being slightly disappointed by this as the house and the outhouses had seemingly been collected together from a number of different places, so the... More

We toured the house and grounds this week. Things were very well maintained and appropriately appointed. The house is a more modest plantation home, but still beautiful and a great representation. It isn't on the scale of Mount Vernon, but is just as interesting. The amazing part were the docents: Miss Cathy and Miss Connie. These ladies were so very... More

the woman selling the tickets in the store barely spoke to us, let alone smiled or thanked us. The grounds were old,not well kept, not very authentic. The house was ok, but the tour guide rambled on and on and on repeating some things up to 3 times! This one hour tour could have been done in about 20 minutes... More

Well a family member came to town wanting to look at a old Plantation to see how it was. It's ok but it's small compared to the one in Stone Mountain and is just not comparable. There's some great history behind it but if you are visiting the Atlanta area and you have a choice between this and the one... More

I recently took a group of 25 seniors for a tour and lunch. Our docent was excellent. Everyone learned a little something. What took this experience from average to great was the lunch. We ate in the old school house and the buffet was set up beautifully. The food was wonderful. The attention to detail did not go unnoticed. After... More
