Did I ever think I’d lead a review with an outhouse? Nope, but here I am. Westover has an amazing history and what’s most incredible is that it is still a home! Tours of the first floor happen on a regular basis so be sure...More

We were able to schedule a tour with Andrea, the current owner. She's an awesome mom of three who keeps things real while shouldering responsibility for maintaining this house, a true national treasure. Wonderful person, wonderful house, wonderful tour.

We visited the other 2 plantations in the area so stopped at Westover. There are only scheduled tours, check their social media, so we just were able to walk the grounds, 5.00 per person. The view of the James River is fantastic, but the gardens...More

Since the house itself is occupied by a family, it is not open. However, the grounds are totally worth a ramble and what a beautiful view of the wide wonderful James River. The fee was only $5 and worth every penny. The outbuildings are all...More

The house was not open to the public. It seems it's open only once or twice a year. But the grounds are open daily and they are stunning. A beautiful view of the river, elegant gardens and some out buildings. The mature trees are wonderful....More
