We had a great visit to the Hay House. It's a little expensive to get in but it was interesting to see a house that has been passed down to other family members. They are still in the process of refinishing the house so not all the rooms have been brought back to original condition. It was interesting to see... More

We stopped in Macon on our way from Atlanta to Savannah, specifically to visit the Hay House. The exterior is just as stunning as the interior, and the home is among the most impressive that I have visited. The lower level has a small gift shop, a cute bathroom for guests, and a few rooms with artifacts and information about... More

Hay House was build between 1855 and 1859 in the Italian Renaissance Revival style. It's quite different from the Greek. The Italian has curves, and arches, and opulent three story cupola. Take the tour, the ladies tell stories through stone, wood , brick and marble. They take you through history with this house..

A great little museum in Macon. Spent over 3 hours touring the house, and enjoyed every minute of it. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

This tour really makes you step back time, and think about how day to day life might have been (if you were wealthy)

Take the time to visit Hay House and let the ladies take you on the tour of this magnificent home. The history of the house is amazing from the sliding panels that lead to a secret tunnel that goes down to the river that was used during the War Between the States by the Confederates to secretly take their money...

Worth the time and money, Sara our tour guide gave as an hour tour with my wife and myself. Lots of history and being restored to its glory. The view from the top is well worth the extra $4

We're English and took the Behind the Scenes Tour. It was fascinating for us to see how an American, having returned from Europe produced his interpretation of an Italianate mansion. Much of it is faked up, e.g paint effects instead of real stone or wood. The fake marble looks real and the two dimensional piainted panelling really looks as though... More

My guide (I do not recall his name) was great! I started by telling him that I am not from the area so I had absolutely no idea about local history - I didn't know the who, the what, when and where. After the tour, I felt like I had lived in the house with the Johnstons, the Feltons and... More
