Beautiful property with all factual and historical antiques on the property. The house is amazing. The grounds are very well kept and gorgeous.

This attraction has been closed for sometime. There is still a great walking trail around some of the property with interesting historical info about the former grand country home. You can see the home from the trail. It was a gem in its day. Sorry mismanagement closed it forever.

Unfortunately, Chinqua Penn Plantation is no longer there. It was bought with the intentions to continue its grandness, among other personal reasons, but the new owner had to file bankruptcy and all furnishings, etc are gone. There are no longer any tours so a trip there would sadly be wasted. So a rating of one is given.
