I visited Nottoway in Jan '17 for a business meeting. I stayed overnight in the overseers cottage. The room was nice, could use a little patch-up work and updating but it was clean. Bathroom the same. We utilized the conference room for the two day...More

Had a Groupon for this Plantation which we visited on our way to New Orleans. Interesting historical tour; beautiful house and grounds. Restaurant looked wonderful but we didn't have time to dine there.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
The Nottoway web site appears down. What are the hours of operation and how long does the tour take. I'm trying to plan trips to multiple plantations in a day and trying to coordinate all the driving. For instance you can reserve the tix for Houma's house online.
