  • Traveled with friends to visit plantations and gardens in Mississippi and Louisiana-these gardens were the ones we imagined in our dreams...stunning  more »
  • Beautiful flowers in bloom, massive oaks, and a pond to stroll around make this one of the best diversions in the area. The owner happened to be there and hearing her story was priceless.  more »
  • In Spring all the flowers are in bloom and it is so pretty. Nice to get out and walk around the gardens.  more »

  • So this is an amazing place to take photographs but dealing with the man that collects the money is beyond ridiculous. Not only is he rude but he has the nerve to stop me in the middle of a photo shoot to grill me because one of my clients cancelled on me and the number of parties i'd have to pay for was reduced by one and demand money we had agreed I'd pay on the way out. He was rude to one of my clients as well. I paid several hundred dollars to him that day. Not sure if the guy just doesn't want to have to deal with customers so he tries to push them away with his attitude or he just has extremely poor manners. Either way there is no excuse to treat someone and their clients so poorly. If I owned the property I would not tolerate that kind of behavior from someone who is dealing with customers on a daily basis who are paying good money just to access my property to take photographs. The prices are $100 per family and in the afternoon $125. Makes me wonder if the price increase is going in his pocket. IF YOU READ THIS YOU SIR HAVE NO RESPECT.
  • Its always closed for one reason or another. Weekends...weekdays..a month at a time, its always closed. It would be nice to say how beautiful it is, but I wouldnt know. So for now I will say dont waste your time driving up there repeatedly as I have done because it's always closed.
  • So beautiful! My cousins wedding was perfect!
  • Completely enchanting it was wonderful to walk the grounds knowing how many people had been there and how beautiful it was I totally recommend it
  • Very beautiful even when the azalea bushes arent in bloom. See if you can find the hidden family grave yard
