“Beautiful home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you want to learn more about the history of the area and the people who settled it this is a place to see. Plantations were so beautiful and it is wonderful that this one and some others were saved and restored to their original state. They should be saved so that everyone can learn of the history of our country. This area is so full of how our country began.

“Neat little place you'd never know was there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We visited Endview Plantation on New Year's Eve, hence no crowds whatsoever, so we were treated to a private tour of the house. Our guide was knowledgeable and did not rush us through at all. This historic site focuses on Civil War involvement on the Peninsula, which is often overshadowed by larger sites/tours in Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown.

“historic gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

this place was part of the great hsitory of this area--and the guides are very thorough and the place is lovely--a gem in a sea of fast food restaurants and gas stations--and you don't see any of that when you go there

They have a very pretty venue and they hold excellent reenactments! I'd go when there is an event going on.

“Great historic site to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Nice place to spend a few hours, some hidden trails on the property you can explore in addition to the tour of the house, check out the bridge by the stream!
