The tour is very well done and informative. William, our guide, had worked at Rippavilla for 17 years and was a wealth of information concerning the house, grounds and history.

This is a beautiful plantation home, furnished with lovely antiques. The house is supposedly haunted and several events were detailed by the docent. There were several Civil War happenings here. If you enjoy historical homes, be sure to visit this jewel!
We enjoyed our tour of Rippavilla plantation. The home is beautiful and there is a nice gift shop and restrooms on the grounds. Our guide was informative but we did not experience people in each room dressed in period clothing. I guess it is only on certain times that this is what to expect.
This is a completely fantastic site. The house is gorgeous inside and out. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and funny. There is a nice gift shop and this is a great place to host parties or weddings. Plan at least two hours for your visit and they host great events all year long. A 10 out of 10!

Toured only the house, but very fun to see past come to life; seeing where Confederate generals had headquarters during the Civil War. If you have some time, stop by and check out the structure/architecture of the home and the furnishings.
