When my wife and I travel, we love to visit historical sights, e.g.: homes, plantations, museums, etc. We had gone to Thomasville, Georgia to see some of these. We really enjoyed the visit to Pebble Hill. It was a quiet Tuesday afternoon so we had the tour and the docent, Alan all to ourselves. What a trip down the lane... More

They day we went was rainy so we almost had the place to ourselves. The house and grounds are beautiful. The staff was very knowledgable and helpful.

We did not make the house tour but found the grounds very well kept and attractive. Of particular interest was the collection of horse carts.

I have toured several plantation for the historical content and this was one of the most beautiful. It was more like a horse stable than anything else. In the last 50+ years, the plantation has been primarily used for hunting leases. Right next doors, there are homes/barracks from WWII still standing. We self toured and had a relaxing time at...

This is truly a gem and for those wanting to learn about Plantation life and it's owners.You will be delighted by the hospitality shown you by the tour guides.Able adults and well behaved older children will really get their history lesson, but an enjoyable one for sure!. Younger children will be better served by waiting for an outside venue ,especially... More

We toured the mansion at Pebble Hill Plantation with a guide and 12 of our friends. This was our favorite adventure in the Thomasville area. The house is enormous at 31,000 square feet. The rooms are decorated with the original furniture and art work dating back to the early 19th Century which includes a number of original Audubon photos. The... More

It is a lovely estate. You can look at it online at www.pebblehill.com where they have a photo gallery. The house, stable, grounds, and story are all very wonderful to experience. There is an art gallery on the second floor and you are free to walk the grounds with your own map. Pictures in the house are not allowed, but... More

Nice grounds, interesting house and friendly informative tour. Nothing about plantations though, all about a winter home for rich folk from Cleveland. Grounds by Harrison Florida landscape designer and House and other buildings by Garfield. Bot gardens and building are great, not ostentatious or magnificent. A pleasure to visit. But nothing about plantation life, all about hunting.

Beautiful house, stunning grounds. Very scant mention of the slavery on this plantation. Make sure you not only visit the family and pet graveyard but the slave cemetery also (which you will have to ask directions to) Very humbling seeing the carved cement headstones.
