Robert Frost could have used a local guide when he decided to take the road less traveled by, as he discovered only too late that it was patrolled by feral park rangers. Learn how a tour guide makes all the difference with this Groupon.

$20 for a Guided Tour of Nottoway Plantation & Resort for Two (Up to $40 Value)

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.

Beautiful house, very interesting facts and amusing stories told in the tour. Seeing the plantation on your own (free) is possible, but I highly recommend this tour, it adds a lot of value to just seeing the place.
