  • Beautifully kept grounds and structures. We took the $5 per person self tour as we didn't want to wait for the one-hour tour to start. We were provided with a map and walked around ourselves looking into the houses.
  • Had a wonderful experience touring this historic site. Our tour guide was excellent - his knowledge and backstories made the tour very interesting. The grounds and buildings are exceptionally maintained. Plus the added artistic background with the colony of artists and Clementine Hunter make this a great stop as you tour the south.
  • Great place to visit. I love the way it smells outside. The guides are very informative.
  • WOW-Good time for all-beautiful historic site & TONS of Fantastic crafts,food,& entertainment!!
  • This place has so much to offer at such a great price. Go and enjoy all the sights and history. It's truly local history with some Metoyer descendents still involved. I go here every year and learn something new each time.
