We did not take the tour in the house. We will next time we visit. Just didn't have the time. Walked around the site and out on the pier, it was breathtaking! Quite place to visit and walk around. A little hard to find, so make sure you use your GPS. We will return and visit again!

I like history. I'm a Civil War enthusiast. I went there for a late night paranormal investigation for fun. I've always had an interest in the paranormal. I didn't expect the real thing! I didn't see a ghost but we sure seemed to be talking to one in the house. The ghost was turning flash lights on and off (or... More

Weston is the only surviving 18th century plantation house still standing on the banks of the Appomattox River and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. The house lies at the end of a small access road and is easily overlooked...so be on the lookout when trying to find her. Weston house has been beautifully maintained and the... More

We visited on a rainy day and had the docent to ourselves. She was attentive to our questions and was most pleasant. We learned a lot about the owners and history of the plantation. This manor house is smaller than some nearby James River plantations, but it still conveys aspects of the time period well.

Tis place was a little hard to find but thanks to our GPS, we found it. And glad we did. A very impressive tour by a lady who was one of the volunteers to take care of the place. Fascinating tour. What I really like about this place is the grounds are open to the public for weddings, bridal showers,... More

Weston manor is certainly worth the visit. The grounds are beautiful overlooking the river. There is also a sweet little gift shop & the volunteers are very helpful. A must see during the holidays as it is empecebly styled in period appropriate floral arrangements & decorations.

This might not be the first plantation home I would visit if I were coming in from outside of the area, but if you are in the area or have hit the other ones then I would certainly go. Price was reasonable-around 8 dollars. Great view of the river if you walk the grounds. Get to see the first and... More

This Antebellum home is well worth your visit, when in the Hopewell area. Weston Manor is maintained by the Historic Hopewell Foundation. It overlooks the Appomattox River.

Rich in history. Grounds have been reconstructed. One of the only Plantation homes left on the River. A must see for history buffs. The basement was being used for an elementary school tea party. Got a discount of 5 bucks per person. If you find this review helpful, please acknowledge.

There are many plantation homes in Virginia and this is a nice one. It has period furnishings and a good staff. It's a nice hour or so activity.
