9 of my friends and I stayed at this house over the July 4th weekend to celebrate a bachelor party. We stayed that the house for 2 nights.
The house is big and spacious. The first hour or so we spent exploring all the places in the house. The decor is unique and brings you back in time. The rooms were clean and we were provided linens. Considering we had 10 people, staying there, we rented out the entire house for the weekend at a bargain. Prices in other areas were high due to the Essence Festival that was happening. The location is nice as nice and quiet. Within walking distance there are multiple restaurants to explore and the trolley system to take you into town if you wanted to.
The owners are spectacular, Eddie was extremely accommodating and friendly. In the morning the owners brewed coffee and provided granola bars.
The courtyard is amazing space and was the most interesting part of the house to me. The owner told us they can accommodate to large parties. It has a beautiful fountain, a platform/stage area, and the interior can be converted into multiple bar stations.
I definitely recommend this house for any type of event.
