The property is lovely, every detail has been saved and exposed for you to admire. A lot of history in the main building. Newer areas have been added keeping harmony. The owner is such good man, we got our drinks at the bar on the house.

Weekend Getaway
Our stay was a one nite weekend getaway and it was everything we hoped. Grounds were wonderful, our tour guide and tour were very informational and we learned alot about the plantations history and how it came to be so grand. Gardens and grounds were extensive. The restaurant was EXCELLENT, the food was great and the service was wonderful.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service
Our stay was disappointing. The check in staff was unfriendly and we did not get the King sized bed we had reserved. She begrudgingly gave us museum tickets instead. We were not offered golf cart transportation to our room, which was offered in our last visit. When we went to the bar, the bartender seemed confused and the hostess at the restaurant was just rude when we said we didn’t have reservations - it was like we were bothering her - and the restaurant was not even half full. Our wait staff was the first welcome we received and she did a great job. The food was very good and the room was lovely. Our first visit was so wonderful we know that it can be much better than it was - it is all about making people feel like welcome and valued visitors. Most of this staff did not do that.
