Did I ever think I’d lead a review with an outhouse? Nope, but here I am. Westover has an amazing history and what’s most incredible is that it is still a home! Tours of the first floor happen on a regular basis so be sure...More

We were able to schedule a tour with Andrea, the current owner. She's an awesome mom of three who keeps things real while shouldering responsibility for maintaining this house, a true national treasure. Wonderful person, wonderful house, wonderful tour.

Reservations a must for the house tour!Grounds only $5. House and grounds $25. The house tour takes about 45 minutes, and add another 15 to 30 for self guided grounds. Stunning structure, intriguing history. The position on the James river is gorgeous. Take short 1/4...More

Wish this fabulous place was open to more extensive viewing by the public but because the family lives on the premises, tours are restricted to a relatively small portion of this beautiful home. Even though most of the house is not open to the public,...More

We visited the other 2 plantations in the area so stopped at Westover. There are only scheduled tours, check their social media, so we just were able to walk the grounds, 5.00 per person. The view of the James River is fantastic, but the gardens...More

Since the house itself is occupied by a family, it is not open. However, the grounds are totally worth a ramble and what a beautiful view of the wide wonderful James River. The fee was only $5 and worth every penny. The outbuildings are all...More
