We had the opportunity to spend an afternoon and night at Nottoway. (We used Book.com and got a deal where breakfast was included with our stay.
The property has been excellently updated while keeping the history and feel of the property front and center. We chose to stay in one of their "cottages" but visitors also have the option of staying in the mansion itself. Rooms that are not rented at the time of tours become a part of the tour! Rooms that are let are closed off from visitors at that time, but what a neat mix!
The very few things that I think need addressed are the fact that some standard upkeep on the fronts of the cottages (fly specks are all over the fronts of the cottages and doors) as well as the staff really need to keep the windows bays on the outside of the restaurant broomed off. It's not overly appealing to see insect debris on the outside sills which is a distraction from the absolutely amazing seating area. (The windows in the restaurant are floor to ceiling and curved and offer the guest an unrivaled feeling of dining on the lawn.)
If you choose to get a room inside the mansion, pick the master bedroom if possible. Otherwise, the cottages are spacious, updated and offer a luxurious stay in this delightful property.
