Despite a fire, the attraction still features impeccable rooms and gardens. Look for items once used by the plantation's inhabitants, see old optical machinery and sight-testing equipment brought to the site by a once-resident doctor, and view the largest collection of carriages in the Caribbean.

  • Beautiful to visit. You can walk around the house and see what everything looked like back in the day. I also really enjoyed looking at their plants around the house. The plants are very different from what I usually see in the eastern USA.
  • Well preserved and interesting look into the sugar plantation history of the island. The house has many antiques and historic artifacts. The place tells a story and is well run and maintained. Scenic drive to get there too.
