OK, I have spoken elsewhere of my disappointment with how short the house tours are in Charleston, and the fact that they don't allow interior photography (except for the Heyward-Washington House);. Those two things aside, the Manigault House is pretty wonderful. It is not quite as visually stunning as the Russell House, but it is still beautiful, and the architecture... More

We took. Combined tour with grey line city tours which took us by bus for city your and then a tour through the house- yes it's pretty and historic but there are better ones to tour in Charleston. The guide knew his history but talked fast and my preteen's fell sleep and my 3yr. Son did the best he could... More

This is a fascinating home. The tour was wonderfully informative not only about the Manigault family, but the furnishings were very nice. We learned so much about life in the early 1800's. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

I toured the Manigault House this past week on my visit to Charleston. It was an easy walk from the Hampton Inn where i was staying and also the Charleston Museum and the Charleston Visitors Center. All of the these sites are within the same city blocks so you can visit all withing one morning or one afternoon. The garden... More

We really would have liked to spend time absorbing the ambience of this lovely and historic Adams-style house north of city center. Too bad our guide talked in and on and on without ever getting into the house itself. But they were very nice folks and the place is definitely worth the aggravation.

A college student (I think) was our tour guide. He talked so fast it was impossible to understand 75% of what he was saying. We managed to piece together the story of the house but his presentation colored the entire tour. While he was knowledgeable, spewing dates, it felt rote. This house is a landmark of a time gone by.... More

We had to wait outside in the heat for our tour, which gave us time to look around the grounds, which was fairly interesting, but beastly hot. The home was interesting, but not outstanding. I would recommend this, but there may be better homes to visit. We did this as an add-on to our city tour with Grayline bus tours.

This is a lovely home well preserved and offering a view of time past. The home and furniture are wonderful and the gracious staff welcomes all with enthusiasm and charm. The central staircase is especially interesting.

This historic house is situated next to the Charleston Museum with convenient parking at the large parking lot near the Visitor's Center. It may not be as elaborately furnished as some of the other Charleston houses located further down on Meeting or Bay Streets but it is historically just as interesting especially as it came very close to being demolished...

I saw another reviewer stated this was his last house to visit and his least favorite, for us it was the first house we visited and we really liked it. This house had style that the others didn't. It has the subtle beauty, not lavish and loud like the Calhoun, not utilitarian like the Hawthorne Washington but a subtle beauty... More
