Sure, there maybe grander plantations, but what set this visit apart was the tour guide and the stories. You left with a real sense of how the elite lived, prospered, gained/lost fortunes, dined, celebrated and yes...died.
An added bonus for the holidays was the inclusion of the Christmas decorations per room based on the time period. Very interesting in the holidays evolution.
Back to the tour guide, fully dressed in a time period costume with a zest for telling tales, she was a highlight. The plantation was guarded during the war and was not plundered or damaged like many in the south but there were a few bullet holes in the columns.
A bonus was the wine tasting and the wine gift shop at the end. Very well appointed with unique gifts and wine paraphernalia, the Blackberry wine was the best.
