It is an old plantation in Southern Maryland. The public tour was nice, grounds are beautiful and well kept. Even has an old slave quarters showing the disparity between them and the owners. That part was informative but sad.

Well you missed NOTHING by not going to the Sotterley Wine fest. Grossly overpriced. 25 dollars PER person to get in. ($20.00 in advance) That got you a glass and a FEW, very few, tastings. Why, you ask, so few tasting with so many wineries? Well all the "premium wines" cost a dollar to taste. I guess Maryland has a... More

This is an amazing place to visit. The special events are amazing and fun for the whole family. The tours really take you back to another time and allow you to see how people used to live. Weddings are beautiful... Really cant say enough about this place!

Always something going on at historical Sotterly! From wine tasting to reenactments of time past! Easy to go to and plenty of parking. Don't miss it!

Sotterley, the only Tidewater Plantation which remains open to the public in Maryland, is located in Northern St. Mary's County, MD, about an hour due south of DC and an hour southwest of Annapolis. As a resident of St. Mary's County, I bring visiting history-buff friends and family to Sotterley to enjoy the indoor docent-guided 60-minute standard house tour, specialty... More

It's worth paying for the house tour. Our guide Alex was excellent and very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

I went for a special program, so the main house was not open for tours. I enjoyed the walking tour of the garden and grounds and the program that they were holding (The Choice). The docents were extremely knowledgable. They actually are people who work on the investigations of the all the histories associated with the estate. Not only it... More

I go to Sotterley once a year for wine drinking contest and tie one on. Its a great time. You just walk around tasting the different wines until you get drunk and fall on the group. Don;t worry about passing out. The area is covered with nice soft grass. Is almost like having a bed everyone you go. You can... More
