“A bit boring!”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Its a small house, the restoration okay. Did have quite a bit of Civil War artifacts. Don't think it was worth the entry fee. What we did find interesting was talking to the archeologist that was working on the kitchen dig. The outside fo the house and the land surrounding it is open to the public w/o admission fee and beautiful.

“Interesting tour”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

House isn't as big as some "plantations" but the tour was very interesting. Since the house was used at one point as a Union Hospital, there were very interesting displays about medical treatments and other info on civil war.

“Beautiful home”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

If you want to learn more about the history of the area and the people who settled it this is a place to see. Plantations were so beautiful and it is wonderful that this one and some others were saved and restored to their original state. They should be saved so that everyone can learn of the history of our country. This area is so full of how our country began.

“Neat little place you'd never know was there”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

We visited Endview Plantation on New Year's Eve, hence no crowds whatsoever, so we were treated to a private tour of the house. Our guide was knowledgeable and did not rush us through at all. This historic site focuses on Civil War involvement on the Peninsula, which is often overshadowed by larger sites/tours in Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown.
