Concierge.com's insider take:
This restored sugar estate lets visitors peek into St. Croix plantation life during the 18th century. Stretching across 12 acres, the grounds encompass an oval-shaped great house (note the surrounding moat that was used for cooling, not defensive purposes), bath house, windmill, and several other buildings. The guides are especially humorous and knowledgeable; it's worth waiting for one of the intimate tours of the main home. Check the Web site for details on the evening Candlelight Concerts, the only classical music series performed on St. Croix.
