I really enjoyed my visit to Rose Hill Mansion because it was very different from other types of historic home tours I have taken. The home owner was with the tour guide greeting everyone as they came in, offered us a glass of wine and genuinely welcomed everyone into her home. The guests were able to sit on the sofa's and chairs in each of the rooms, which is very unusual in historic home tours. At the end of the tour there were just homemade snacks (sweet potato pie, dips and breads) from the family cook. The home owners were also there answering any questions and you were able to re-visit any rooms in the tour and grounds taking as much time as needed. This was truly a unique and enjoyable experience!

Very nice tour with wine and snacks. We met the owners and they were so welcoming. So happy to see that someone cared to save this home after a fire.

Worth the visit as it is a beautiful home. Very scripted. Very few furniture pieces are museum. Tour ends with a "tea", but it is a sales pitch for very good home-made jams and baked goods.

Two years ago we were fortunate to have a tour guided by the gr-gr-granddaughter of Dr Kirk. Her knowledge of the home, its history and the people that lived here was superb. She spoke of her family with emotion and made them come to life. Now we understand that Cynthia Kirk is no longer giving the tours and we were saddened by this. The new tours are more about the current owners and some historical aspects were lost. We were able to meet with Robin White, owner of the home with her husband Robb. No doubt in our minds that she loves this old home and respects it. I just feel that the history is the story to be told..
