Rose Hill Mansion is a stately mansion that was lovingly restored by its current owners who actually live in the mansion. Although the tour price is steep ($25), it was thoroughly enjoyable, interesting and informative. Our very knowledgeable guide Joanne was also lively, humorous and interested in providing guests with the best possible experience. We were never hurried and if you arrived early you could meander through the downstairs rooms and take photographs leisurely (the tour is of the first floor only) and/or do the same after the tour is over. Small samples of several foods were served after the tour and all of the foods were described in detail by the delightful cook. Several food items were available for purchase. Reservations for the tour are required (offered at 2 pm only) and online I found a coupon for a free glass of wine. Be sure to take a look at the restrooms, too!

I am from Charleston and have been on MANY house tours in the south. Rose Hill Mansion tour was different from any tour i've been in on, in a good way! Most tours you can't take pictures or touch anything; from the second you enter the home, you can check out the rooms, sit on furniture, take pictures, and sip a glass of wine. You learn so much about the home, great tour guides. The best part is at the end, when you get to sample southern cuisine, homemade by a chef who KNOWS southern cooking! Great way to enjoy the beauty of the lowcountry, try southern food, learn history, and relax!

Nice history lesson as well as viewing a nicely restored house and furnishings. This is the only Gothic Revival plantation house we have seen. Our tour guide and the local food at the end of the tour were Excellent.

Unique southern mansion and a truly fascinating tour. The tour guide was professional and able to easily answer questions, not just about the building and the families who owned it, but also about the history of the region as it related to this area of the south. The tasty treats offered at the end of the tour were delicious! We not only purchased many of their wonderful condiments but also purchased a book about some of the mansion's ghosts - written and autographed by the lovely and gracious owner, Robin White.

One of the nice things about this tour was that at the end of the hour we were not rushed out, but rather encouraged to go back to each room to more closely examine whatever caught our eye. Mrs. White and many of the staff members were available to answer questions and expand on the stories told during the tour.

We will definitely take this tour again and highly recommend it to travelers and residents alike!

Our tour guide was awesome in her knowledge of the house and its history, but there were a few negatives regarding the tour. First, there were 33 people in our tour, which we felt was at least 13 people too many. Some of the rooms are small and we barely fit into them when she was discussing them. Second, we were unable to see the upstairs. Very disappointing. Finally, the tour ended with a sales pitch from the chef regarding the ingredients and the products she used for the small bites she served at the end of the tour. Fairly expensive at $25.00 per person.
