Was such a beautiful place to visit. Gardens were extremely well cared for and the house tour was great. The restaurant food was extraordinary. Such a spectacular time there.

Very glad we chose to visit this plantation. Surprised though at how rude/unfriendly the staff was from the ticket office to the docents in the house. They acted like it was their home and we had dropped by uninvited. Where was the southern hospitality?

Nice place to walk around and enjoy the garden and animals. Don’t pass up the 30 minute history presentation well done on the background of plantation and slavery. Good education for our granddaughters.

I enjoyed a solo trip here while my family fished. It was so peaceful and the grounds were well landscaped. The volunteer for the garden tour was very knowledgeable. You had to pay extra to go in the house but since I was limited on time, I just spent the time exploring the gardens. There is an extensive area with historical signs by the stables, to show vehicles, pottery, and other things of interest from that time period. Highly recommend! You could occasionally hear construction sounds in the distance and the tour guide said it's a battle between progress and preservation. So glad the family has chosen to preserve this!

It was interesting to hear the story of this plantation and of the people who lived and worked here. The guides did a good job of presenting plantation history without glorifying it. The grounds are beautiful.
