This is one of my favorite houses. It was well worth the visit, and being that John House was our tour guide, I feel like we were given a great treat. His knowledge is unreal. He rattled off dates and information and I was truly captivated by his stories of the past. This house predates the other houses I have... More

What a delightful place to spend part of a day! Oakley Plantation is amazing. The big house holds treasures from the original family and is restored to the Federal period. So you are not walking through a home filled with a hodge-podge of furniture from a range of time periods. The out buildings are also amazing so don't miss the... More

Daniel our guide was incredible. He imparted so much information and was passionate and lively on the subject matters. No memorized prepared speech here! Film in office was great too. Highly recommend this place. Was very sceptical bec of fee but left feeling like I got more than my $ worth.

Had a wonderful tour of one of the older plantation on the area. It was interesting to see how functional the house was in contrast too how extravagant some of the latter homes were. Tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the house, family and time period on general.

Nice tour of the house and grounds. The house is a guided tour, and the grounds you do on your own. Watch out for the Peacocks!

Very informative. The tour guide was very nice and tried to meet everyone's questions with the best information possible. Very neat place to know about history. The trails were full of banana spiders so it was hard to walk it but other than that it was great
