My family visited the house for my mother's birthday. I had planned to have a picnic and let me tell you, every staff member was thrilled that we came to celebrate with them. Our tram driver helped us find a perfect spot to eat. They have tables and great grassy spots that are perfect. The house tour was wonderful. I... More

Went on a trip to see the Christmas lights at Callaway Gardens. Stayed at a hotel in LaGrange vs at Callaway Gardens, to save some money. Looked for things to do, found Hills & Dales Estate. Tour is guided and very informative. I can't think of any room we didn't enter. Not very expensive. Garden guide was equally knowledgeable. I... More

It was a Saturday morning and we were the only ones on our tour. Alex our host was very knowledgeable and the home was a great adventure. The day was very cold and windy so we were not able to enjoy the gardens as much as we wanted. Don't miss this one.

We visited on a weekday in October, when the weather was picture perfect, and nearly had the place to ourselves. House tour was interesting and informative, but the garden and grounds are what you really want to see. Gardeners were available to answer questions, and supplied a ton of information without even being asked. Use the garden map from visitor... More

A must see for any age. Everyone was so gracious and informative. The gardens were unbelivable and so fragrant. Like stepping back in a wonderful era.

This is a must see. Opened in 2004 5 generation of women have created this garden. Which was the family home to the Calloways and where the vision for the Calloway Gardens came from. Enjoy it!

Visitors to northern Georgia will heat the name Calloway a lot! The family are clearly rich and influential. A good way to learn the history is to visit Hills and Dales. We were the only people arriving at the time and got taken on our own in a buggy train through the gardens to the house. The house if beautiful... More

Beautifully restored and maintained mansion that was the home of Fuller Callaway and descendents. Excellent tours by enthusiastic docents take about 1 1/2 hours. Tour is unique in that all areas are open to the public without the usual off-limit "ropes". The Callaway and Cason families are Georgia dynasties. Their contributions in the form of Callaway Gardens & Resort and... More

We loved how pristine the house and gardens were kept up. It was like we were just invited over but the family was out for the day. Almost like the "butler" was giving us a tour of his treasured house with the only rule don't touch. It is all original like the family left it. The gardens made me feel... More

Who knew this was here? If they promoted themselves more, they would be crowded with visitors, but they don't advertise much. This means if you go there, you might have the place to yourself and I experienced with a girlfriend recently. We took a day trip out of Atlanta and spent a wonderful 90 minutes touring the home and gardens.... More
