We went in July and it was very hot outside. However, we still could enjoy the place. The grounds are more than beautiful, and oak trees are the main attraction. Beyond beautiful! The tour inside the big house is very interesting and the stories about...More

I was expecting more. The tour was seemingly over before we had been in the house for long. I recommend skipping the house tour (which I did not find all that informative) and visiting the beautiful grounds. The house surroundings offer plenty to see and...More

The big house was not as spectacular as I imagined. There wasn’t a lot of antique furniture. One very nice piano and baby crib and also a nice dining room. The oak trees lining the walk way was the highlight. And the exhibit on slave...More

Gorgeous view from the 2nd floor balcony! The trees seemed surreal. Our guide was knowledgeable and the house was beautiful. Loved seeing the period style furniture. Would have liked to have learned more about the people who lived there.

The Whitney plantation! Hands down the most informational. It’s more of a museum and than a historical tour within credibly knowledgeable guides.
