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

We visited the Hay House and did the Behind the Scenes Tour! Would recommend this tour to everyone! This place is awesome! So very beautiful and full of history! My husband says it rivals the Biltmore. We plan to return in a few years to see the progress on the floors currently being renovated. I really can't pick a favorite... More

The tour of the Hay House took you back in time to see how the old South money used to live. Guide was excellent and explained the history behind the beautiful home. Home has been beautifully maintained and the staff take pride in working their jobs and passing on the history the home has helped create.

We stopped on our way through the area and were not disappointed. This beautifully restored home is a treasure. Matt, our guide, was gracious and informative. We enjoyed the "modern conveniences " that were built into the house. The wind tunnel and wine cellar under the front steps were very interesting. Supporting these attractions will ensure they remain around for... More

This is my kind of place. I dream about living years ago and in a mansion like this. Well I know I can't go back in time so visiting somewhere like this gets me close. They are slowing restoring this place to its grandeur. I missed the start of the hourly tour but the man let me join the tour... More

The tour of this house was very good, conducted by Matt. The rooms of this 18000sq ft house are being carefully restored to their original grandeur. Note the crown moldings as they are beautiful. I am not one for heights, however, Matt said the additional $4 fee to go to the cupola was worth it. He was so right. We... More

I've lived in Warner Robins for 42+ years and, I'm ashamed to admit, this was my first visit to the Hay House. Took my sisters and brother-in-law when they visited us. Since I love by-gone eras, this was a wonderful experience for me, as well. If you would like to step back in time and see what life was like... More

We enjoyed our visit here. We elected to take the guided tour also and enjoyed wandering around this grand old home. Our guide was great answering questions and giving us the history of the home, but also insight into life in the area over in bygone years.

We'd never heard about the Hay House, but were traveling through Macon and decided that we would select one thing to see. We saw the house in the AAA book, so we went. The restorations and recreations were fabulous. It was so interesting to see the styles of home that ultra rich people chose back then. Definitely a hidden gem.
