Fodor's Expert Review Haagensen House
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
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. A guided tour includes this property, plus other restored 19th-century houses, a rum factory, amber museum, and finally, the lookout tour at Blackbeard's Castle.
