Take the time to visit this plantation and learn it's history. A one hour tour and well worth the time and money. You may be very surprised to learn that the history books leave some things out.

There is nothing wrong with this lovely plantation home or the services it provides. I also support its right for its preservation and use as a historical structure. However, Nottoway, as with other area plantation homes, has adopted a perverse narrative to make its association with slavery more palatable. According to its historian, the owners were benevolent, and their slaves... More

Nottoway is a beautiful and romantic getaway for couples. We stayed in the Carriage House for a friend's wedding and it was phenonmenal. The rooms were extremely clean, and the staff quite welcoming. We dined in the main restaurant and had the most delicious meal. After dinner we had drinks in the Mansion Bar and returned to our room to... More

This is a beautiful property. The tour guides are all in period attire and do a great job of telling the history of the house.

The place was beautiful. After reading some of the reviews, I agree there is very little mentioned about the real heroes of the plantation- the slaves. Although our guide Keri did a good job on the tour and did make mention that Mr Randolph never separated his slaves families in purchase or sale, it's kind of just brushed aside. Reality... More

My husband and I took our 9 year old granddaughter to tour and stay at Nottoway Plantation. The house is remarkable. The renovations have been very well done. It is hard to tell original from refurbished items. There are some original furnishings. I just wished there were more. The tour and movie were very informative. Photography is allowed without flash... More

We actually had not planned to stop here, we were just passing through and we pulled in, the tours were already through for the day, but we were allowed to walk the grounds and go inside to the bedroom of the original proprietor. Beautifully restored! We also went into the restaurant and bar and it is exactly as it would... More

Recently drove the extra miles from New Orleans on a trip to see the plantations. We were disappointed, to say the least. The lady tour guide was nice but did not know the history well and could not answer many questions. Several on the tour actually helped her and filled her in. Although she was in period dress, the effect... More
