“Not a Tourist Stop But Allowed to Walk Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

The mansion looks like a historic Georgian mansion but actually was built in 1949 by a local businessman. What is most impressive was the scrupulous attention to Georgian architectural design. The curator took some time from his busy day to discuss the building and the family that built and lived in the mansion before it was given to the city of Kingsport.

“June Wedding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

Allandale is beautiful. The buildings and grounds allow one to imagine what life may have been like in another time. You just know you are in Tenn.. Enjoyed a wonderful June wedding on the grounds. Stageing was under a huge oak tree with limbs shading the afternoon sun. Glorious.
This is a large property with many different areas for events. Parking was close and plentiful. What a great place for a beautiful wedding. PS. It was a great day, temps in the 70"s, not a cloud in the sky.

“Deserves a short visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Architecture is nice, house is showing its age. Guides are knowledgeable. It would be a better tour, if there was a garden guide also. Barn was not open for tour.

“Great Year Round Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Allandale is a beautiful spot year round. Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons for outdoor weddings/bbq's/reunions at Allandale with several locations to choose from allowing a host of themes for your party. FunFest brings the dog show and car show to the front lawn of Allandale each year; and the new outdoor amphitheater was completed this past year bringing concerts to this beautiful locale. Visit during the holidays to experience an array of ornately decorated trees.

“Beautiful Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We toured the house and had dinner there. The house was beautiful but the food was cold and very salty.
