  • The property was really nice and well kept. The tour was great and gave a lot of information.
  • Large property with very interesting history and beautiful buildings
  • Wonderfull grounds with pretty lake, where you can walk for a few hours (walked w dogs), very interesting tour of mansion. Quiet, enjoyable, well kept place.
  • Very beautiful setting, just visited for a family members wedding. The air conditioning in the church did not work well and the ceiling fans did not work (or no one showed the bride and groom how to work them as we tried many switches). The bride and groom had to provide all decorations and there was no signage provided by the plantation the day of the wedding so thankfully for cell phones guest found there way through the maze. The air conditioning worked well in building used for the reception and bathrooms were well maintained.
  • It all good
