We love to tour houses and plantations. Rose Hill Mansion is unique. First the docent was Cynthia (5 X great grand daughter of the original owner's family. She is knowledgeable, very interesting and funny. This house was nearly destroyed by fire and probably should have been torn down. The current owners saw it and saw the potential and took on...

We came here one rainy afternoon during our visit to the area, and basically, we were delighted. Long and short of it is that we enjoyed it so much that - while fantasizing about our vacation this summer from still-winter in dreary old Boston - Rose Hill is at the top of our list of places to return, and we...

Tours are by appointment only. Call to make a reservation and to see when they are scheduled. The week we were here they only had 2 tours for the week. Don't shy at the $25 tour price. We thought it was worth it. This is not a museum, but a house that is lived in. The owners have done a... More

Cynthia (one of the docents) is the great grand-daughter of the former inhabitants of this old plantation. The current owners live here and open up their home for people to come and see & learn. Big highlight of our current visit to Hilton Head. They even have wine!!!!! Take a couple hours and go enjoy this tour.

I think we picked the best mansion to visit. Privately owned, full of history, and guests are welcomed. Received with a glass of wine, toured through 6 or more rooms filled with lots of historic articles, and information from the guides. Finished tour with sweets and refreshments; and welcomed to wonder the rooms/grounds and photograph whatever we'd like.

"Now that you are here, you are family," docent begins. And we were treated as such. After paying $25 pp for the visit (which isn't much), we were then offered a glass of wine from local grapes for $5. Great, another nickle and dime place, or so I thought. I bought the glass, which was very liberally poured, and thoroughly... More

My husband and I were looking to go to a local plantation house while in the area and Rose Hill was really the only one around. It ended up working out great and we loved the experience! They served wine during the tour and at the end their are treats and punch to enjoy while you wander around the house... More

My husband and I recently toured the beautiful and historical Rose Hill mansion. From start to finish - we were so impressed with the gracious southern hospitality, knowledge and professionalism of our lovely hostess Cynthia - a direct descendant of the original owners. The home is stunning - and the tour was very interesting and informative! We took advantage of... More

This beautiful home was completely resorted after a devastating fire. The guides are very knowledgeable about the home and its past.. Be sure to look at the book which contains pictures of the fire to truly appreciate what the current owners have done to restore the property. There was an historical vintage wine offered for purchase ( a bargain at... More

One of the best tours we took while staying in Hilton Head. Tour was lead by relitive of the original owner. She shared with us a lot of history of the home and the contents of the home from a southern point of view. We were told to go ahead and sit on the chairs as we were guest. There... More
