Girls Day Trip

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

This plantation is so very unique and is entirely different than many I have visited.if you love architecture and "real history" you will probably remember this house from now on. It will be easy to understand why Audoban relished this place. As with the other state owned properties in the area, the info given by state tour guides are full... More

We had a great time at the Oakley Plantation. Our tour guide was very informative. We went mainly because of the association with Audubon. They have a large amount of first edition prints on display.

Tour guides in period dress tell you the history of the plantation where James Audubon drew most of his drawings. Taste recipes original to the plantation home in the original kitchen or walk around the beautiful gardens surrounding the lovely house.

We were the only one on our tour, so our guide put a little extra "Umph" in our tour.. he was cool as a fan.. This is a great home. The architecture is beautiful. The visitor center is great too, be sure to stop in.

This place is a delight. I have brought countless international friends and colleagues to Oakley, a Plantation I have visited more than twenty times in the past ten years. Everything is authentic, a trip to the past. Enjoy the educative museum before visiting the house and tour the grounds. The house is beautifully decorated with simple antique furniture. It has...

This plantation home was one of our favorites to visit. It was started earlier than many others, in 1799. The home is filled with original furnishings that reflect the British influence rather than more heavily gilded and ornate pieces. The tour guide, Paul, was fabulous, giving details of the home, the families who lived here, and the history of the... More
