  • Beautiful restoration! The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Only the first floor of the house was open for touring. It would be nice to have been able to see the rest of the house and the kitchen building. The grounds are beautiful.
  • Small and quiet historical plantation, nice gardens. The tour is not long, but our guide, Evelyn, was excellent, she gave us wonderful overview of history of the place and those who occupied the house. Word of advice: the road to plantation is a 1/2 mile long narrow gravel laden trail, so don't take your best car to this place, because rocks will get you.
  • History and architecture are interesting. Our guide was great. Gardens aren't​ much if you are looking for interesting plantings. Only takes a couple of hours.
  • What a great find! Quaint. Historic. Feels like stepping back in time. Only downside is you can't enter the upstairs floors or the out building.
  • Loved the tour. If it only one place to.. Go here
