October 18 is the annual auction at the plantation home of the Lee family. Bid on the "Stratford Hall Immersion Experience", and on a weekend of your choosing, Laine will take you on a tour of the Great Hall and grounds after closing and all the living leave, except you and 11 of your friends. About the Stratford Hall Immersion Experience:

 

Stratford Hall is more than just a Great House! With this package, you and your friends or family can enjoy a very special Stratford experience.
 
First, the Astor Guest House is yours for the weekend – Friday and Saturday nights. Six guest rooms (for up to 12 guests) + a living room, dining room, kitchen and deck. Enjoy a private lunch for your party on the Stratford Cliffs. Take in an afternoon of biking and kayaking at your leisure. After Stratford closes to the general public, take an after-hours tour of the Great House and historic area with internationally known investigative medium Laine Crosby. Relax with cocktails and a private dinner in the Astor Guest House. Sunday morning enjoy a champagne brunch and a guided fossil hunt on the beach.
 
There’s so much more to do – take the new mobile tour, (re)discover Stratford, hike the nature trails, explore the Visitor Center and of course shop in the Gift Shop!
