The gardens and home are lovely. However, there are almost zero wheelchair friendly spaces. Wheelchairs are unable to access the main house, slave quarters, trolley ride, butterfly garden, and majority of the floral gardens. Although this remains a private residence, historical integrity could easily be maintained while making the grounds available to disabled visitors. It seems ironic that there are... More

Both the home and the grounds were beautiful! The house tour was very good. Our guide was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions! The preserved slave cabins brought history to life. Great tour for everyone!

The house was rebuilt in the 1930's and is mainly 4 rooms downstairs open to the public...its neat. Two rooms are large and the other is like patio porch style with a... More

A long list of trials and tribulations have challenged many of its owners who inevitably seemed to have responded by selling off more land. And yet it has survived and continues to operate. The current owners are clearly in the business of making money however possible... More

This is a great plantation in the Mt. Pleasant area. There is a lot of restoration work taking place to maintain this historic site. The first floor of the home is still open for touring (the upper levels are closed due to still in use by the owners). The display of the slave quarters were well-done, informative, and flowed nicely... More

A bit pricey at 20 dollars a head. Visitors are treated to actors in period dress. The house and grounds are in great condition.

Gardens positively small compared with the others in the area, though the Oak trees along the drive are amazing. Not a lot to see overall.
