This was the highlight of our daytrip to Georgetown. The docent had a lot of information she shared about the history of the house, and it's furnishings. There is some 'wear & tear', but the managing organization does have plans to keep up with the needed renovation work. I really liked the dining room, and found the house intercom system interesting.

I had been to Georgetown a few times over the last couple years. The house had always been closed due to cpvid. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was open this trip and went to the first available tour.
This is a beautiful house. The guide, Nick, was very informative and interacted well with 3 teenagers and myself. Both of the 2 stories are open for the tour. If in Georgetown, I strongly recommend the tour.

Stopped in Georgetown as a detour from Myrtle Beach. The inside of the property was not open but you could walk around the grounds (and the restroom building was open). The property is gorgeous and the view of the river with the trees over hanging is just gorgeous. It was amazing to imagine living there in this quiet section of town.

This was a fun house to visit. It sits on a very pretty hill in town. There were two primary owners, the last of whom, the Kaminskis, left the home pretty much exactly as it was when they lived there. Nick was our guide and he was very good. We were able to visit all the rooms on the first and second floors. There are restrooms and a nice gift shop.

Whenever we are in an area we like to take in some local history. This was a great tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. It was a very interesting history lesson of the family and the area. If you are in the area this is a great use of your time.

Great tour. Our guide loved her job and was very knowledgeable. The location is right in downtown Georgetown so it's great to tour the Kaminski house' have lunch' enjoy the Harbor Walk and take the Swamp Fox tour.

Our guide was Linda, she was very knowledgeable. We thought it was a plantation, but it was not a typical cotton plantation. It was a rice plantation. It was in the small town of Georgetown. One of the first houses built there that is on public display. This is not a tour for little kids that can't keep still and to themselves, as it is a 1:30 min-1:45 min tour with a small space to move around with a lot of antiques.

My family has tried to tour this palce several times in the last few years and still haven't been able to do so. We planned very careful this time to make sure we would be there at tour time. We checked websites, did e-mails, checked Georgetown tourists papers, etc. and once again we missed the tours. The tours are only done at limited times...not like the websites say (on the hour). this is not worth the frustation and besides there are many other things to do in Georgetown.

Great house left just as it was when the owner died. Bridge table setup, sweater on back of chair. A great glimpse into how people lived.

My husband and I visited on a rainy afternoon and it was one of the highlights of our vacay!

They have guided tours at 11:00, 1:00 and 3:00; we meant to get there for the 1:00 but we arrived about 10 minutes late because of who I am as a person. Thankfully, no one else had come for the 1:00 and the docent seemed happy to be able to give us a private tour! He was extremely knowledgeable and very passionate. At the beginning of the tour he asked us what we were most interested in (antique furniture, architecture, history, etc.) and then he focused mainly on that - the history and people who lived in the house - but he also slipped in some interesting facts about the antiques and architecture as well. This is must-do.
