Food was excellent. Owners were very friendly and welcoming. "Haunted house" stories were somewhat matter-of-fact and less entertaining than we expected. Beautiful old Victorian house and grounds.

The hosts were so friendly and welcoming! The estate has so much history, and there are tons of things to look at. My wife and I had a fun night filled with a good dinner, laughs, fun, and intrigue.

If you love American Pickers, then you'll get a kick out of this house. Random "treasures" are everywhere inside the house. Makes it a little hard to enjoy the 'historical' aspect. The room where everyone ate supper is also used as an office (I.e. I got to peak at the books, and listen to the fax and phone ring). Save your money and just drive by the house and take pictures.

Went for the ghost story dinner. The "ghost stories" consisted of the host showing us photos on his phone and the dinner tasted like it came from a can. The house is cluttered with random knick knacks inside and not at all decorated in a historically accurate way. Extremely disappointed by the whole experience.

Although the food & the company were lovely; the "ghost" tour lacks a bit. We truly had a good time but it was a little expensive for the menu was only a very small salad, pasta (no meat) & tiny little finger desserts. Our hosts were extremely kind & hospitable. A good time none the less.

The food was good, but not for the price. It was basically a small salad with a bowl of noodles, sauce, and one piece of store bought French bread, with no offer of additional bread. The same meal appears on their menu for $7.99. There was an array of bite size desserts offered as well. The tour needs polishing, not very professional in delivery with inaccuracies pertaining to local area facts. The event could be improved by including a protein, or a glass of wine with dinner,and a bread basket,as well as developing a format with which to deliver the information. It would also be of worth to learn the facts about local archaeology before speaking on them.

From Our Editors

Giant oak trees and old-growth flowering camellias surround The Daffodale Estate, a grand Victorian home built in 1897. Those trees create an aura of mystery that matches the puzzling rumors and ghost stories associated with the property. Ghost-hunting teams have visited in the past, documenting paranormal activity with cameras and motion detectors. One of the teams sensed the presence of a ghostly family with a young child. There's also a Civil War–era slave cemetery nearby, and an Indian mound said to date back more than 1,000 years.

Despite its paranormal reputation, the manor is home to more than just ghosts. The spirit of hospitality also permeates the stately house, which hosts outdoor weddings and parties that spread out across three acres of manicured garden space. Inside, a Victorian dining room filled with period furnishings frequently fills with the friendly din of conversation during the house's lively luncheons and tea parties.
