“Beautiful Fall Day”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Spent the day wandering around South Carolina geocaching and our adventures led us here. It is a beautiful property. We didn't get to go inside as we were there later in the afternoon after the tours had already run. The fall colors are stunning. The rose gardens look and smell beautiful and the restoration of the property is well done. Beautiful big old trees everywhere. It is a little off the beaten path but worth the drive and yes there is a geocache on the property.

“beautiful historic house”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is a great day trip for anyone in the area. The house is beautifully renovated and filled with great antiques. So glad it wasn't used as target practice during WWII. It is also a beautiful drive through the forest, especially at this time of year.

“A Little bit of unknown History”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Well done restoration, a bit hard top find but a nice back roads trip. Knowledgeable tour guide, few, if any, others visiting. Good condition back roads, in the middle of "nowhere" (Sumpter National Forrest), but not far from Newberry and Union, but pleasant towns as part of a day's tour of the midlands
