Fun afternoon to give a look back in time. Guide was very informative and open to some crazy questions. Owners were welcoming--it is a private residence. Miss Pat's cooking is yummy!

The home and grounds are beautiful! The docent is passionate about sharing the history of the home and its inhabitants in a thoughtful and lovely way. There are interesting artifacts discovered on the property on display. The current owners have lovingly restored the home over 9 years and it shows! At the end of the downstairs tour there is a delicious tea for the visitors.

First, the folks who now own this mansion had a huge vision and project. I respect that. It was an interesting experience to "tour" a home that is being occupied by the owners. It was a bit off-putting to be nickled and dimed (wine upon entry for $5 on top of the tour fee!) and the snacks were a selling opportunity for the chef. My suggestion is to lighten up on the "selling" and just let that be an afterthought or option that you gently offer.

Management response:Responded January 6, 2017

Thank you for responding and posting on trip advisor. I do apologize if you felt put off
by the additional items that we sell during the tour here at Rose Hill Mansion. These items do help with the maintenance and upkeep on the home. I do believe we are the only tour that allows our guest to enjoy a glass of wine while touring the 158 year home.
We also do make a FREE coupon available for our guest on our web site for a free glass of wine if the book on our web site or cut the coupon out in our local paper. We do try to create a very welcoming feel for each of our guests. This is why we allow guest to sit within the home on the furniture and enjoy food and beverage after the tour. Again ,the additional product sales at the gift shop help with the upkeep of the mansion.

The historical tour incorporates only the first floor of a 10,000 sq ft mansion, but the docent is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent story teller. The histories of the land, it's current and previous owners, visitors during the war, and found items on the property can keep you interested for hours. Sampling many southern favorites from sweet potato pie to their own jarred jams and salsas was a surprising delight we did not expect. I have not seen such a beautifully unique plantation home done in Gothic revival style.
