  • The home is beautiful. The tour was inexpensive. What I didn't like was the multiple guides along the tour. It's a nice antebellum mansion but once you have seen the Biltmore nothing else can compare!...  more »

  • This is a great place to visit for history buffs. Rob was an amazing your guide, very informative and a great sense of humor to boot. After the tour some great wines to taste and if you're hungry the restaurant has great food very reasonably priced. Hope you get a chance to go and enjoy!
  • Wonderful place. Very nice tour guide. Tasty wine.
  • The home and grounds were much smaller than I expected however the tour guide I had made the trip worth it, she was phenomenal.
  • Very good tour guide! Beautiful grounds and very informative signage all over the property. If you come early in the day, make sure to grab a bite at the Harding House, an onsite restaurant. Delicious!!!
  • Really enjoyed the tour. Big collection of historic item inside of the Mansion, well conserved. ..Sad is not allowed pictures for tourist memories....So we were there as if never been.....Blackberry wind my favorite....
