I had the opportunity to visit Nottoway Plantation, as a site visit for a corporate sponsored event I worked on. We started off with lunch in the Mansion Restaurant. If you have a small part of four or don't mind sitting at separate tables, the Rotunda has the best views for dining. So quaint and elegant and overlooks the Plantation... More

Beautiful grounds. A nice place to get out and stretch after several hours in the car. Very interesting tour - guide was great and very in character. A fun way to learn a little history. An hour is enough for teenagers, unless staying for dinner, (but restaurant appears a bit upscale for kids.) It would be a beautiful venue for... More

Decent tour and food, rude service at hotel, overcharged, loud on the grounds because of wedding guests in cottages, lousy pool area, not a resort.

We stopped by for the house tour. Our guide was new at the job but she knew the guide talk very well. She wasn't able to answer all the questions though. She should learn 'I don't know' rather that take a wild guess. I asked how much land was owned by the Randolfs. She said about 90 acres; the museum... More

This was extremely beautiful and interesting place to visit. We wanted to see a real antebellum house and this was really worth visiting. Best part of the visit was our guide. He knew a lot and told many interesting stories about Nottoway and that era of time, when Nottoway was built. It would have been a great place to spend... More

I took my three daughters there for a get away and rented two cottages. I requested Queen beds in each room, which was verified along with a late check out. I was very disappointed when we were shown our rooms ~ they were actually suites with a full kitchen BUT we had one King bed and not the two beds... More

It's located on River road south of Port Allen on the west side of the Mississippi River. The home sits on much smaller acreage than it's original siting, but still brings off the majesty of the antebellum period. The tours are very good and the guides are quite knowledgable. Over night stays and special events are available for rent through... More

This is the largest surviving plantation house in the South. It was spared bombardment because a Union Naval Officer had been a guest in the house before the war and knew the owners. The mansion house had been in great disrepair and was still undergoing restoration (although you would not have known it). The tour guides were knowledgeable and very... More

Really enjoyed our 45 minute tour of the plantation, would have liked it more if it had not rained as I would have like to see the family cemetery and walk to the rive. The rain was too much so we opted for a trip to restaurant and bar. Drinks were good bartender was super friendly and nice. As for... More

This is an awesome Structure, in a day when a lot of homes come in on trucks[modular and trailers] it is incredible to see the time and effort put into these old homes. The guide was great and the ground were great too. A must do if your in the area.
