“False Advertising..Careful with Timing!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

The Ad stated They Were Open Sat 10-4Pm But They Were Closed With No Explanation! Bad Business If You Ask Me. They Should ANnounce The Months They're On Vacation.

“Restored house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We loved the person guiding the tour. There is authentic furniture from the time the Danes owned and occupied the island.

“Tour of Danish Lawaetz House/Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We truly enjoyed our visit of the Lawaetz House, museum and grounds. Our tour guide, Delores, did an outstanding job and was very knowledgeable on the family and Danish history. Beautiful gardens which had recently been manicured.

“Wonderful estate with excellent guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We visited the estate today and had the pleasure of meeting Denise, the museum guide. The estate is charming and has a variety of interesting memorabilia. The gardens can be compared to being a Botanical Garden in on their own and the setting is one of the most charming on the island. Denise was extremely knowldegeable and is a wealth of information. Her charming personality truly made the visit a great experience. She also shared with us interesting facts about the Whim plantation (where the guide was not very motivated). Highly recommend the estate with Denise as the guide.

“A Danish Plantation House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

For anyone interested in the Danish history of the island, Estate Little LaGrange in the "rain forest" of St. Croix, is a "must visit". For a small fee, one may have a guided tour with a volunteer form the "Landmark Society" which provides insights into the daily life on a Danish Family plantation.
