Beautiful home but with all the emphasis placed on the resort took away from the history of the home.

Nottoway is a beautiful home but a lot of the emphasis is placed on the resort which you can rent a room or cabin and stay there. It was really like touring an old hotel or... read more

Nottoway is a beautiful home but a lot of the emphasis is placed on the resort which you can rent a room or cabin and stay there. It was really like touring an old hotel or something in a lot of ways. They did have some very beautiful and interesting antiques and the grounds were pretty but the most beautiful... More

This plantation is a nice place to visit, however,Houmas House is much more beautiful and the gardens at Houmas House are extraordinary. The tour was also better at Houmas House.

This is a wonderful unbelievable plantation. The mansion is incredible. The tour was great and very informative. You can take photos but no flash. It takes you back to what life was years and years ago. We had dinner at the Mansion restaurant which I have reviewed separately and also stayed at one of the cottages which I've reviewed separately.... More

The weather was terrible. Cold & dreary, so we couldn't enjoy touring the grounds. The tour of the inside was nice. I love that you are able to take your own photos of the inside of the house. A lot of places do not allow that. Our tour guide was very friendly & knowledgeable for only having been working there... More

We were staying at a RV campground in Convent and this place was recommended. We took the last tour of the day thrust the house. The house is beautiful. I especially liked the white ballroom. The tour guide was informative and knowlegable. We ate dinner at the Mansion Restaurant and it was a beautiful setting. Very elegant and the prices... More

First stop of our plantation list was Nottoway. We rented a car from NOLA and booked a tour then had lunch at the Mansion. Beautiful Grand Antebellum Nottoway Mansion. Did not address slaves at all just the home's history and it's owners and how they lived. Nottoway is currently looking for potential buyers! Some of the rooms can be booked... More

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
