So it doesn't look like the other classic plantations. For one thing, it is viewable from the road - and the architecture is not Colonial or Georgian. You will find out why! Get out of the box and see something less stereotypical; you won't be disappointed. This place has history, too - and the grounds and antique collection are fabulous. In addition, Dot, the owner, is so welcoming. You will find a friend with a great sense of humor - as well as tremendous knowledge. She saved this place, and you can tell it is a labor of love. My friend and I visited with minimal expectations, and we were amazed and thrilled with our tour. Can't wait to take other friends - and if we can get a group of 8, we will certainly have tea. You will see things here that you won't see at any other VA plantation including vintage clothing and some exquisite antique dolls. That is just the tip of the iceberg. You will leave with a smile on your face and want to return for one of the many events - or to spend the night in the house or the slave's quarters. Your most fantastic wish will be honored and accomodated. Don't miss this place - or Dot!
