Was a nice place to visit, but not as grand as some of the others nearby. It is sort of just "there" if that makes sense. Nothing around it, but industrial unfortunately. Worth a stop if you have extra time, but wouldn't be my first...More

Having seen all but one of the plantations in the area that are open to the public through the years, I was so disappointed in this one. The property is very unattractive due to the oil refinery behind the property. But besides that, the lovely...More
