Fodor's Review

This lovingly restored house was built in the early 1800s by Danish entrepreneur Hans Haagensen. It's surrounded by an equally impressive cookhouse, outbuildings, and terraced gardens. A lower-level banquet hall showcases antique prints and photographs. Guided tours begin at the nearby Hotel 1829, then continue here. The tour includes stops at other restored 19th-century houses, a rum factory, amber museum, and finally, the lookout tour at Blackbeard's Castle.
