We had our daughters wedding this past week. There is not enough I can say about how wonderful it was. Billy and his staff kept up with every detail - the grounds are spectacular - every detail of the wedding went off without a hitch - however it was Chef Tammy that made the event shine. I am a very picky eater - I have never had such incredible food - there was no need for salt and pepper - perfect seasonings - three meals knocked it out of the ball park - our guests all complimented the food. Great Job !

Attended a seefriend's wedding in April 2021. Everything about this property is amazing. Miss Kim (the owner) and Gabby her daughter made this week for our whole wedding party nothing short of utopia. Thank you for everything.

My husband and I stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage for a quick getaway. We ordered 3-course room service. Everything was so nice! The food was delicious. The service was quick and helpful. Everything was clean and comfortable. We will definitely return!

For $323 (total) a night, I think this is a bomb. Our room was very clean, bathroom updated and clean, with an abundance of supplies. The bed was amazing and the pillows were also great. The staff was friendly and helpful. That's everything nice I can say, and it does sound great, right? Well, if the people upstairs are awake, you're awake. We were awake at 3:30 am both nights we were there. If anyone walked in their room next door, we heard it (pretty, hardwood floors). Once, a door slammed and I watched my drink on the table almost spill itself. I am not exaggerating here. If anyone talked outside, we heard heard it clearly through the old walls and single-pane windows. The room was lit by two 40-watt bulbs. There was a bedside lamp, but we had to unplug it since only one of the two plug-in spots worked. The sink was slow to drain. The towel holder fell off the wall. The cabinetry is painted plywood. Watching a movie all the way through is not possible with their internet lags interrupting it. Turn up the TV volume if the heater comes on. It's loud. There is no restaurant or bar on premises, so we had to go into town for each meal (ten minutes and there are some great restaurants in Thomasville) and bring our own drinks from home or the restaurants. There is room service if you let them know what you want to eat at least a week in advance. It rained while we were there and the quaint, unpaved roads became a mud bath. Walking to and from the car to our room through the muck was not fun. We went straight to the car wash after checking out. The old oak trees with moss hanging and twinkle lights hung are charming and beautiful. They surround the individual buildings that hold the hotel rooms. It reminds me of church camps when I was growing up. That kind of grouping of buildings. (see photos I uploaded) Make your own decision after my honest review.

I was curious about this place so I contacted them. The lady I talked to was incredibly rude. If you do a basic Google search you can learn more about the owner and place. It's 2021...let's stop romanticizing plantation weddings. It's disgusting. It's nice many bridal website are starting to raise the concern. I don't see this place lasting very long.

Daughter found her dream location, scheduled to view the location but the only person who showed up was the cook, do not get me wrong she was wonderful and the location was exactly what we wanted. Told our date was available but within an hour of leaving our date was no longer available but that was okay as we were flexible, asked for a break down of prices and was told they were busy and it would take 2 weeks to get that to us, I do not understand why they don't have a basic price list on a pdf file, almost 4 weeks later still waiting.... thankfully we found another venue that was more cooperative

Response from Gabrielle Hope, General Manager at South Eden Plantation
Responded Oct 15, 2020
Hello Andy, Thanks for reaching out as we find your review incorrect in regards to the information that was provided to you as well as our staff members quality of service. The person who toured with you was not just "a cook" who "could show up". That was Tammy, our long time Executive Chef of all South Eden Wedding Experiences. She enjoys meeting clients just as much as the rest of our tour reps do. As you can imagine. being a unique, family owned/operated event venue, our employees are cross trained and have become like family. Every employee here is dedicated to providing a great quality experience. This also means, that especially during COVID, when you came to tour, our expert staff is commonly equipped to provide different services, as we have had to regulate how many employees can come in to contact with clients looking to tour. Tammy is one of these expert employees. In regards to your date, no one on that tour would have access to the event calendar to tell you what is and is not available, as you inquired after, I am sure you got the proper information in regards to what dates we had open. Also, not one employee at South Eden told you, "We are busy and it will take 2 weeks." What you might have misconstrued that from is our online wedding questionnaire you must fill out to receive an approximate wedding quote. This does have a notation stating that it takes up to two weeks to receive back a fully customized wedding proposal. Other than that, we would have been more than happy to email you a generic price range sampler for your convenience.

I surprised my husband with a trip to South Eden this weekend and it was one of the best times we have ever had together! The staff were so helpful and kind with my last minute booking and everyone was so nice while we were there. The taste of Eden experience was so much fun and the food was so good. The grounds are gorgeous and the stateside suite was so relaxing and inviting. We will be returning again on a regular basis. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
