We spent our anniversary weekend here and were not disappointed! Nottoway exceeded out expectations in every way. We loved the beauty of the grounds and the mansion, the excellence of the food and wait staff, the enjoyable mansion tour, museum and historical video clip. Our cabin was comfortable and offered a beautiful view off our porch of the pond, fountain,... More

On Saturday evening, January 30, 2016, I had the opportunity to visit Nottoway plantation for its Murder Mystery Theatre. Let me not mince words: it was terrific! From the greeting at the Front Desk, to the wait-staff, to the actors in their Murder Mystery Theatre, every element was top shelf. The play was performed in 5 acts, with an intermission... More

This is a very good tour and honors Groupon for tickets. I loved the tour guide telling the history in each room. If the chairs or sofa had a rope on then you could not sit on the furniture. This is very important to me with due to my limited ability to stand plus can see what type of furniture... More

This plantation home is one of wonder and beauty. An absolute dream home from the outside to the details of the architecture inside;)!! Every single room had a story and why it was built the way it was. One of our favorite rooms was the "White Room" which was just beautiful!! There was soooo much detail put into this plantation...

Quite a building. Has 27, yes that's correct. closests. Also had gas lamps and a commode; both were firsts in that area for late 19 Century. The docent tour is great. Best is you go early as groups as small and you get special attention. Restaurant is also good. Be sure to wander around the grounds either before or after... More

I took an evening tour and had dinner at the plantation on a "cold" rainy late December day. Both were wonderful. The tour guide was vary informative and the meal was very good. The house and grounds were excellent. I was exceptionally impressed with how well the plantation is maintained and preserved.

Our tour guide Racheal seemed very disorganized and confused about what she was supposed to be doing. I'm all for period dress to up the "feel" of the tour but if you are... More

Nottoway is a very well preserved plantation home. It is an active hotel/B and B, so there is a lot of activity. Plus a very popular wedding venue. Still, the tour of the main home is excellent, very informative. This was an over the top plantation home in its time and it still is! If you enjoy touring the plantations,... More
