“Nice Gardens”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We were disappointed since you could not enter house...think someone lives in house...we expected a Historic Plantation like we've visited in SC and LA but not so...yes the grounds were like most plantations with beautiful scenery leading down to river and lots of walking but home looked more like a general modern bigger home than a true historic working plantation. The home was beautiful from outside but when we visit plantations we expect to see detailed historic things...slave home, antique furniture, etc. We won't be returning.

Visited August 2011
