We visited a number of Plantations on our trip but this was the best. The tour guides were very well informed on the history of this plantation and the area in which it was built. Lots of information about the family that built the house. Much less crowded then most of the others we went to.

We absolutely loved this plantation! The price was reasonable and the docent was knowledgeable and patient. The stop here is worth it just to see the grounds, let alone the house and out buildings.

The place is simple amazing, the exteriors and the interiors. I have been impressed of the vision of the owner and the great things he have done for that period. The cultural experience for travelling to Europe is being seen in the gardens that are so beautiful.

Beautiful restoration was done on the property to bring it back to its splendor when it was built in the 1830's. Pour tour guide Sasha was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the house, the family and the time period when they built the plantation.

Often with plantations you either have an awesome tour but a "meh" house and/or grounds (see Laura Plantation) or a gorgeous plantation and a crappy tour (see Oak Alley). Rosedown is one of the few plantations that really has the best of both - the tour was fantastic and I really loved the mythbusters tidbits (fyi - brag buttons weren't... More

This is a very nice place to visit. It shows what these plantations looked like back in the 1800s, and the guide was very knowledgeable.

Rosedown is a great example of the "Golden Age" of plantation homes. If you want not only an informational tour, but beautiful scenery, you have come to the right place.

Fantastic tour!! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We roamed around grounds and we're fascinated with all the things there. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that gets a chance. Nice gift shop and museum. Employees there were very knowledgeable too.

The grounds are very pretty and shaded so even in 95 degree heat of summer it was manageable. The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Most of the furnishings are original to the house so it's extremely authentic. Definitely one not to miss.
