    I normally review things on TripAdvisor, but had to review on Google this time because I felt so sad to see the undeservedly low score for this beautiful home and excellent tour. My mother and I went on this tour expecting something a bit different – more sugar cane and information about how the plantation “worked.” There was certainly some of this, and it was very interesting, but there was even more about the house, and the people who lived there (I was so fascinated by the two sisters who lived in the house for many years, one working as a nurse, the other a politician, who eventually founded the trust that makes this historic place possible.) There are gorgeous grounds, really interesting furnishings and stories, a spectacular tour guide (we had Pam – she was so knowledgeable and a joy to listen to) and a really delightful trip to the old farm kitchen. The woman who greeted us in the kitchen, Paula Rosa, was a local who actually knew and worked with one of the sisters towards the end of her life. All together, one of the best home tours I have ever undertaken.
