We visited Rowan Oak while staying in Oxford for one night. We got there shortly before closing on a Thursday night. The cost was only $5 per person and they let our two children in for free. It was a self guided tour but there were two university students there to answer questions. It was nice to see the historic... More

If you like Faulkner this is a must. Parking is a little confusing but you can figure it out. You park on the dirt road and walk just a ways to the house. Nice grounds. Worth the trip. $5.00

I visit this beautiful old house and it was great! They keep the house the way it was while he was living there and it's posible to imagine him there writing. It really worth the visit. Also the yard is very nice!

This is a nice place to visit...the garden area is pleasant and if you can access Mr. Falkner's home that is a treat...Mr. Faulkner would hate what the town has become...

After reading a lot of Southern writers & seeing pictures of this place it was good to go through & get a feel for the place. The docent was very knowledgeable.

If you come to Oxford and you enjoy literature, then you need to visit Faulknar's house. It is very simple...not complex...just the basics of life. He concentrated on writing and the story...not what was around him. It was a learning experience..enjoyed it!

The grounds are wonderfully kept and great for a walking tour. The history atmosphere around there is overwhelming. There is always someone around to answer any question you may have about the property. There in a uncanny since of calmness around. There is a fee to enter the house, but it's well worth it, otherwise walking around the grounds is... More

Great history of the author and area. Loved the muscadine arches. The grounds are beautiful. My grandfather delivered milk to him in the 50's. Scary stories I won't share. Not my favorite author, but great era facts for history buffs.

Great road trip with my sons had to include Rowan Oak. Entering the grounds, you are struck by the beauty and since of calm. The house itself is lovely, still furnished as the Faulkners lived in it. The tour would be superior if it was guided. There are students there to answer questions, so why not train them to be... More
