Madewood Plantation House Reviews & Ratings
Absolutely worth the visit. Make sure to call in advance to schedule your tour. The mansion is very well preserved. Angie, the property manager, was really great and shared so much information about the plantation house and it's history of ownership. She even lets you take a picture in the "Beyoné Chair" but make sure you ask her first!
Madewood Mansion is a gorgeous home and should be added to anyone's "must see" list! The house is being restored to it's original state and when it's complete we are already planning a trip back! Several movies have been shot on location here including Beyonce's "Lemonade" music video. We even got to sit in her chair! The home is unique in the fact that it was not built by slave labor. The skill and precision craftsmanship is breathtaking. The attention to details in the flooring, the fireplaces, the hallway and staircase... it's really incredible. Our tour guide, Angie, kept as captivated for an hour as she told us stories about the previous owners and all the work put into the house. She even hosts large groups for dinners and events on the property! The house is currently owned by a famous artist and his paintings are everywhere and can also be purchased. Thank you Angie for a great tour!
I have been to many Antebellum homes. The interior was beautiful. The exterior and gardens need some work. There have been many families that have lived there. The history story gets confusing. The portraits in the house don't seem to relate to the story. Pretty.
I attended a wedding, and it was beautiful! Everything was coordinated excellently, the food was amazing, and the music was perfect. The entire house and grounds were open for viewing which my kids and I enjoyed very much. Overall a great experience for everyone.
We booked at Madewood after looking quite a bit into the different plantation hotels and B&B's.We were three adults, looking for two bedrooms. The plantation offers several rooms that actually include two bedrooms with one bath for the same cost. A great option for us. We were not disappointed. We stepped back in time in this very tastefully renovated mansion, that has kept all his history and charm. The park is wonderful and the rooms still look and feel as if the original owners lived there. Angie's (the plantation manager) hospitality and cuisine are generous. We have tasted a full range of southern dishes perfectly cooked and presented, and enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese before the dinner and brandy in the parlor after. What a great time we had! We cannot recommend Madewood Plantation enough.
