This is a beautiful plantation home which truly shows the grandeur of life on the River in the 1800's. The story of the Randolph family, who built the house, is also very interesting. The property is well maintained. It is a beautiful setting for photographs.

We were very fortunate to be on an American Queen riverboat cruise of the Mississippi and be docked "across the road and over the levee". You could see our boat from the verandah! The home is beautiful - attention to detail extraordinary and you have to see the White Ball room to believer it. You almost hear the music. Certainly... More

A huge white plantation home sitting on beautiful grounds in White Castle, La. We went on the tour of the home with a young man that is very new to this but seeing the beauty of the house itself was wonderful. There is a large curved white ballroom for all the daughters of the family that is magnificent. I could... More

Attended a dinner for Miss USA contestants here and it was magnificent. I can't wait to have the chance to go back for further exploration. Bring a camera for sure!

I'm heartbroken to write this review. I did a lot of reading regarding this property, history, the owning foundation and the extensive renovations undertaken some years ago. Was extremely excited at the thought of being able to visit this beautiful antebellum home. On arrival entered through the front desk/gift shop to be completely ignored by all staff, not welcoming at... More

We visited Nottoway Plantation and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and knowledgeable tour guide. Although we did not stay overnight, it looked like it would be a wonderful place to stay. We were saddened by being told that some of the guest "take" a souvenir when they are allowed run of the house after hours. We did feel that this was... More

The house was beautiful. The tour was informative and concise. The grounds are amazling. I would have loved to stay here overnight, but it's hight over priced. It appears that if you stay in the rooms in the mansion, your room will be part of the tour. The white room is not to be missed and worth the trek for... More

Enjoyed touring this plantation. Tour guide was a little lengthy in her presentation. She didn't realize that people were leaving her to walk in to the next room. My group starting having issues standing so long. We left before the tour ended.

This is by far my favorite plantation. The tour was wonderful; very informative. I'd like to go back someday and stay the night in the big house!
