We had a wonderful tea at the Riverview at Hobson Grove mansion along with an interesting tour of the house. We had booked this as a side trip as part of getting to the Corvette Museum 25th anniversary and it was will worth it. The peach ice tea was delicious as was the apple and cinnamon hot tea. My wife had the peach hot tea and that was flavorful as well. The tea sandwiches included chicken salad (outstanding), pimento cheese (tasty), and cucumber and cream cheese (delicious). There were scones with jelly and cream along with assorted desserts. To top it off, the granddaughter of the family who last owned the house was part of the serving staff which was attentive and gracious. The tour was informative and interesting and the view from the functioning cupola was beautiful. The only disappointment was that the river was no longer what it once was with steamboats plying the river due to damming and other encroachments of civilization over the years.
Knowledgeable staff give a great tour. Lots of period pieces and family artifacts. Pictures not allowed.
