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

A picturesque old south plantation and bed and breakfast. Nottaway was on our bucket list of Pre-Civil War Plantations. It did not disappoint. The main house has been restored to remarkable condition. The surrounding buildings have been converted to create a unique event venue as well as a functional restaurant. If you are into old south homes this is a... More

My favorite overnight stop on a tour of the River Road Plantations. Beautiful inside and out . All the rooms beautifully furnished in Antiques. My favorite was an ornately carved Half Tester Canopy Bed. I love all the Canopy beds and all the Dining and living areas are beautifully furnished.

Nottoway is the most impressive house we visited in Louisiana. You must go inside and hear its history when you visit. Kelsie, our guide, was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to see the rooms and take pictures. The restaurant is very classy, but my wife did get sick later that evening so that's the only reason we... More
