  • Pretty darn cool. Self guided walking tour through grounds... mostly a hunting estate that used to be a plantation, so I didn’t see any signs of the previous cotton fields. But it was so beautiful. Couldn’t do the main house, as the request 6 and older due to the hour long guided tour, and we had 3 under that age... next time though!
  • What a cute place! Pebble Hill is located just outside of Thomasville, GA, and was an easy drive for me from Tallahassee, FL. After wandering around the estate and touring the house with its maze of gardens, it is obvious why this is a popular wedding venue. Gorgeous! A perfect and historically educational place to visit on a lazy weekend.
  • Plantation is beautiful with much history to be learned. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Very fun experience!
  • Beautiful landscaping, trees and buildings! A wonderful place to visit and see a plantation home and glimpse into a whole different lifestyle and time period.
  • We went here today for a school field trip it was excellent tons of History and super nice presentation
