Seven days a week, guides lead groups on tours of this historic 64-room antebellum mansion. In addition to winding through the mansion’s rooms and grounds, the tour ambles through the Nottoway museum, which houses artifacts of the original owners.

Nottoway Plantation & Resort

In 1855, sugar magnate John Hampden Randolph began planning a grand family home near the banks of the Mississippi. He purchased more than 1,000 acres of land and commissioned esteemed architect Henry Howard to design the house. Howard envisioned a grand Greek revival and Italianate-style home with towering ceilings, 11-foot doors, multilevel terraces, stately pillars, and showerheads that gushed extra-virgin olive oil. Although the final mansion’s three-story height and 64 rooms are its most impressive attributes, its arcing stairways, ironwork details, and crisp white paint are its most majestic.

Soon after the home's completion, the Civil War began, and the peaceful family sanctuary gathered a rich but troublesome history, much like a country pony on his first trip to the big city. Despite changing owners and losing acreage, the home survived. Years later, a multimillion-dollar renovation project restored the mansion to its peak condition and added modern resort amenities. Once again, the mansion serves as a graceful venue for weddings and meetings, and even houses overnight visitors in 40 hotel rooms. Historical experts remain on hand, leading guided tours to help preserve the memory of the home's past.

It was the best plantation tour we've ever been on. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and did not rush.

A beautiful collection of antbelleum furniture and the interior is in good condition. The guides were also really nice and seemed passionate.
