This home was a great home to visit. The price was VERY reasonable and inside was very appointed with antiques that are original to the home and appropriate for the time period. We caught a strange picture in a mirror, i hope it was not a ghost. lol

This is well done with many lovely portraits and furnishings. It also claims to have spirits that make their presence known; unfortunately, we did not encounter that experience.

There are many historic homes to see in Savannah. I just chose this one because of who lived here. Photos are prohibited inside so you will need lots of memory in your head to see everything.

I'm giving this place 3 stars because I was only able to see the main floor. The "ghost" tour I was on made a brief stop and rushed us through the first floor to give us a taste of the house. We were offered a discount on tickets if we wanted to come back the next day, however, we were... More

My last visit here was 37 years ago when I was 13 and a Junior Girl Scout. It was just as much fun as I remembered it then. The tour was nice and allows full access to all rooms. The garden was beautiful and had lots of photo ops. Don't skip the silent movie at the beginning of the tour.... More

Enjoyed our 1st visit with daughter and goddaughter in 2011 so much that I brought my troop from Maryland in 2012 for the Girl Scout 100th anniversary. Beautiful mansion containing not only Juliette Gordon Low and Girl Scout history, but also info about Savannah. Both tour guides were friendly, informative, and entertaining. Girl Scouts and troop moms enjoyed tours. Gardens... More

This old mansion is exceptional. We went through on a short evening tour. It is guided by a docent and she knew the history of the home.

If you were a Girl Scout or have family member who is one, you will enjoy visiting this site. Lots of history of Girl Scouts and nice Victorian home!

We visited three old houses in Savannah and this was definitely the best. The others were bare-bones but this one was richly furnished and decorated to the max with all kinds of fascinating artifacts including sculptures that Juliette herself had created. I can't comment if it was worth the price because we just happened to be in Savannah on the... More
