Only small gift shop & tiny tiny museum open. Drove up to the "Plantation" no one there! Not a "Tara" from "Gone With the Wind". So if u r looking to see Plantation living. Forget it.

Sallie; I am disappointed to learn of your experience at Hope Plantation , we do not leave the house open . only with a guided tour from 11 to 4 seven days a week, we have docents on duty at the Roanoke/Chowan Heritage Center during these hours. The center is located on the right a few yards down a paved... More

If you're interested in NC history or just history in general this is a interesting and informative way to spend an afternoon.

Family went out for a yard sale here, it was a lot of fun. Didn't get the opportunity to see inside the actual plantation house, or surrounding attractions on the property. Although the outside is beautiful all on its own. Nature trails, gift shop, and areas to picnic. Can't wait till we go back and have the opportunity to get... More

This is a great stop. You can visit the Roanoke Chowan Center which has a shop with things for kids, too, a used bookshop, great facilities and interesting exhibits from 1500s to 1900s. Mansion is full of fine antiques, but tour includes "belowstairs" .King house shows a less formal working manor from 1700s. Full disclosure: I was so taken with... More

They went ALL out for their Christmas Open House. They had several horse and carriage drivers going from house to house to parking lot, picking up anyone that needed a lift. They had each room in the houses decorated in the appropriate time period and someone to answer your questions. Beautiful afternoon where we had fun and made lasting memories!... More

Rather isolated jewel! Rhonda, our guide was phenomenal in her knowledge. Well furnished and even a ghost! Pg. 17 of their inexpensive guide "The Miracle of Hope Plantation", in the mirror and in the window pane in the picture above.

We had a wonderful time visiting the Hope Plantation. Our tour guide, Julie, was extremely knowledgeable and took us through every room in both houses. It was like a glimpse into the past. Definitely a must see for history lovers!

There are two houses on the property, the Hope Plantation house dating from 1805 and the King-Bazemore house, dating from 1763. Both are nicely restored and maintained, with interesting features (notable: Barrel-backed built-ins in the King-Bazemore house's main room, extraordinary quality and rarity of some of the furnishings in the Plantation house). Tours are small, personal and well done. Although... More

We were disappointed that one of the houses, the King-Bazemore House was not open when we visited. We weren't told that until we had paid and were already touring the main house. If part of the visit is not open, I would think visitors should be told that in advance so they can decide if they want to visit or... More
