Took a tour awhile back of the Beall Mansion. The owners Jim and Sandy were very hospitable. I cannot believe the detail in the home, the ornate woodwork, chandeliers, fireplaces in every room, and beautiful furniture. This home was built around the turn of the century (1900). This would definitely be a place to stay for a truly unique evening.... More

My friend and I highly recommend the Beall Mansion Tour. The home is unbelievably beautiful. This was the high-lite of our trip. We were not able to spend a night there, but if you have the opportunity take it, you will not regret it. Thank you so much. You can feel the joy that lingers in the house, such a... More

We stayed one night at the Beall Mansion. We loved it so much that we came back for two more nights on the end of our trip. The home is beautiful and relaxing. Jim, with his butler attire, made us feel welcome and right at home. He was very informative about the area and the home. We loved it and... More

The homeowner is a gracious host and very knowledgeable regarding not only the history of the mansion, but of the Victorian era as well. Jim provided a lot of insight into aspects of that period that I was not aware of.

It was very interesting and we also got to see books with pictures about the restoration of the house. Joe had alot of interesting stories about... More

My relatives also commented that they enjoyed it very much. I also think it would be great to stay, and when I asked about the rates, they... More

I scheduled a tour for 30 senior citizens. The grounds were lovely with some spring flowers still blooming, the interior was beautifully restored, the furnishings had so much character, and the tour commentary added history and interest. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, and it is worth the visit. We were blessed with a sunny day and perfect temperatures. Allow an... More

We called to ask about taking a tour of the Beall Mansion, and Jim, the owner, arranged a private tour for my husband and I within the hour. He showed us through the whole house and gave us a lot of interesting information about the history of the building from the time of it's design and construction to the present... More
