Too much hype- was actually disappointed. For 24 per ticket--not worth it. You get a house tour- House was beautiful and you can hear about slavery and see nine cabins but they advertise it like it was a scenic and breathtaking farm. No free tractor ride and they are very disorganized- no one knows what they have to do when they have to do it.

When we had visitors in town we went here as it was the closest Plantation to us. The hours on the website were incorrect so we could not do any of the tours. They apologized and invited us back the next day. We went back but overall it was okay. Next time we will make the drive to Magnolias or Drayton Hall

This plantation has a plantation house, flower gardens, slave cabins, and a hayride. Although a house was on this site since 1681, this is the third house built here so it is not the original plantation house which was disappointing but the plantation itself is still historic. We took the house tour of the first floor as second floor is occupied by the family. I would get reservations for that first. At one time bricks and pecans were produced here. I liked the Avenue of the Oaks. There is a hayride of the farm and a cafe with a gift shop.

My sister and I were having a great time touring the plantation until we took the 2:00 tour of the plantation house. The tour guide escorted the last few inside the door and then slammed it shut. As he did this, he bellowed “I’m tired of this sh*t! Everyone turned around and just looked at him in astonishment! He then brought us through the next room off the foyer and gave an excellent description of the room. As people started to walk into the next room which I think was the Library, he again bellowed, “It’s like herding a bunch of cats!” At this, the crowd was just looking at each other.. just waiting to get away from this unstable guide!
This gets worse. After he goes through each room, he ends the tour by standing by the glass doors that lead out to the garden. The exit doors.
My sister and I exited and we turned around and a woman behind us had fallen on the ground, missing a step when she exited the door. Her husband started to help her up..she seemed to be okay, but the next thing that happened blew our minds! The tour guide who had been standing at the exit door all of a sudden slammed shut the door! He never came out and offered the woman any help. Instead, shut the door so they couldn’t ask for any help if they needed it. We were just astounded by the bizarre tour guide.

The rest of the tour was very enjoyable... the Gullah presentation, slave houses, carriage ride around the plantation but hopefully, you won’t meet up with this tour guide when you tour the house. It was a very unpleasant experience and put a damper on our day.

A great example of the old days. The main driveway is spectacular with the large oaks.

Filming location of North & South.

Grounds are extensive and well kept. Living history displays.
