Came late in the day, so were a bit rushed, but the property is fascinating . The house tour is a must. Ann was a gracious and knowledgeable tour guide. Amazing to see how the rich lived. Everything is authentic. Well worth spending an entire afternoon.

Don at the visitor center was so helpful & very informative. Kathy gave us the house tour & was a fantastic tour guide. We could've easily spent 3 hours walking around but arrived later in the day. We plan to go back to picnic & walk the grounds.

The buildings are open to the public. Fantastic architecture from the barn to the Main House. Much fine art, China, crystal and murals. Pebble Hill hosts many events during the year. The Uno Barn is a wonderful place for indoor gatherings and many weddings have taken place on the grounds and the stables. A wonderful look at how the wealthy... More

We recently spent the day at Pebble Hill Plantation and it was just wonderful! the property was lovely, the home amazing and what was so nice is that it just didn't feel stuffy or old or like so many historic homes, it was warm and while completely full of history it felt like it was still relevant. Not sure how... More

You can't miss it as you pass by on the highway. The building are prestine and the grounds lovely. It's a relaxing way to spend a few hours and see how this hunting plantation functioned years ago. A great value with lots to see, including on going weddings. What a venue! And as you leave, driving south, you can see... More

We allowed an hour; stayed two; needed more time to visit the other buildings after our delightful and knowledgeable docent, Ann, toured our large group of ten (smiling, but true; more would have been too crowded) through the mansion. The collections of sporting memorabilia are extensive, the house design unique and ahead of its time (1930s), and the second floor... More

We took the house tour after viewing the short film about the plantation. Our docent (Joycelyn) was great, answered every question with enthusiasm, wit and in depth information. The design and features of the 1936 house were amazing--hand painted wood to look like marble, Chinese hand painted wallpaper, refrigerators too big to fit through a door, a staircase built off...

A perfectly preserved and furnished sporting plantation from a bygone era. All the original furniture and family rememberances. Well worth the $15 fee for a guided tour and short movie. Allow yourself at least 2 hours.

Pebble Hill is a great taste of the old south. The house and grounds are similar to original and the staff is polite and knowledgable.

Definitely worth a visit to see how this extraordinary family lived. Very interesting and beautiful as experienced in a very intimate tour. You can see yourself living there because it is so very real. Wear comfortable shoes; you walk on a short gravel road to enter the main house and be sure to view the film in the Visitors Center...
