Nottoway Plantation has a few things going for it. The wealth and social competitiveness of its founder gave it a good start in life. It is huge but elegant and exudes life in a very different time. Of course luck has a lot to do with Nottoway's enduring charms. Not being blown to bits like many plantation houses in the... More

This beautiful plantation has its own intriguing story before, during and after the Civil War. What makes it so special is the fact the present owner (a rich Australian businessman) has the vision to transform the mansion and its expansive surroundings into a exquisite resort and brush away (partly) the slave era of the time

A great experience and beautiful home. Not extremely family friendly, but you wouldn't really expect this destination to be. Interesting for older kids and adults for sure. My usually very well behaved five year old accidentally broke a window. The staff was extremely gracious, but lots of very fragile things on this tour.

Having never stayed the night, I can only talk about visiting Nottoway for a short day visit. But for that, I consider it a must see. The house itself is simply impressive, and the owners have done a wonderful job restoring and preserving it while also adding as much period-appropriate furniture and trappings as they could find. Some of this... More

Nottoway is beautifully restored, and because you can stay there, it is not treated like a museum. Our guide, Margaret, was very informative, interesting, and patient with a "chatty" group with children. It is definitely worth a visit!

We had driven up from New Orleans and had stopped at Oak Alley for a tour there and then came on to Nottoway to spend the night. We took the tour of the home and it was very informative. We had just enjoyed an excellent tour with an outstanding tour guide at Oak Alley and unfortunately, the woman who conducted... More

On 12/31/2013 I emailed the following to Nottoway Management about our experience and as of 01/07/2014, I did "NOT" recieve any response. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- With our 9th Anniversary coming up, my wife had never experienced a Bed-n-Breakfast nor spending the night in 19th century Southern Antebellum plantation home. Therefore, I chose Nottoway since its boosted as the largest and most luxurious... More

We stayed in one of the Carriage House units that was booked as part of a Bridal party stay. Upon check-in the gentleman at the front desk was unconcerned and almost rude. He insisted that we give a credit card number for 'incidentals only' (since the room had already been booked and paid for by the brides parents) he told... More

This is a must visit when you are in area. The tour guide provided fun and not so fun facts about the history of the plantation and life on it. The property is beautiful. The dinning room is spectacular the service wonderful and all the food is hmmmmm delicious.

Was there last month for a wedding! Perfect venue for a clot knit wedding as guests can have the opportunity to live at the venue. There isn't much close by but if you stock up before coming you'll be fine. Good food, better booze.
