I love going to house museums, and what sets this one apart is that it is a work in progress. Often historic houses seem so slick and put together, but the Sorrel Weed House is a great example of a property that is working toward proper restoration. The $12 entrance fee goes directly to fixing up the house. It is... More

I was quite surprised on how much I enjoyed this tour. My husband and I did the ghost tour and walk at Sorrel Weed. We are not the ghost hunting type but thought it might be fun since Savannah is the most haunted city in the country. Our guide was awesome!!! I wish I could remember his name. He provide... More

I have toured many homes and this was disappointing. The guide, Don, seemed distracted and not quite sure of himself. Although there were some interesting aspects to the architecture it was not a great attempt at restoration.

I should have read these reviews BEFORE spending $24 for my husband and I to take this "tour". If you are expecting to see a restored period home, complete with authentic, restored furnishings, and be toured by a lively guide, turn around and go somewhere else. What I saw was a home in the early stages of restoration, furniture that... More

We went in the Sorrell Weed House during the day, and had 2 teens with us, so they may have glossed over some of the ghost stories. I'm sure if you go on a night ghost tour, you will hear a different side. The house was not too expensive to get into. We were the only people on the tour.... More

We had a wonderful tour guide through the Sorrell-Weed House. He had excellent knowledge of the home's construction as well as it's history. The home has not yet completed it's restoration but we still enjoyed seeing the progress and look forward to returning upon it's completion!

if your into ghost stories then this is the house to visit. Murder and suicide all wrapped up in this pretty home. They do offer a ghost tour of the home in the evening also. The best haunted home in Savannah!!!

I would recommend skipping this home and touring the others in the area. It is obvious that the current owners have put little effort into preparing this home for tours to the public. We were the only two on the our and it shut down early the previous day when we tried to take the tour. There seems to be... More

After reading about the Sorrel-weed house I thought what a great place to experience paranormal activity. I have traveled many places including the Queen Mary, Mansfield Penitentiary and the Gribble house all provided me with great voice recordings. We travel with our own equipment and I would like to say we are experienced and knowledgable in paranormal activity. This place... More

I love touring old homes and thought this was very interesting. Our tour guide (Amanda?) was knowledgeable and very friendly. This house has scandal, suicide and murder! I wish you could see more of the house but it seems like they're doing renovations to it so maybe they will open up more as time goes on.
