“enjoyable tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We enjoyed our tour of this house. We had two tour guides one downstairs and one upstairs. My husband and I were the only people on the tour. We loved hearing about the history of the house and the various owners it has had over the years. It was the first historic home we visited during our stay in Savannah

“Glad to have seen it, but it needs work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

The home is lovely and has tremendous restoration potential. Worth the visit as long as your expectations aren't as big as mine were.

“Great visit - no crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We loved that we could wander through the house without the crowd that there is at some of these historic homes. We had a great tour guide on the lower level, and then were able to wander through the upper level on our own. This is a beautiful home and much of it is still close to original condition. The emphasis has been on restoration, and keeping the history of the home in tact.

“Sherman stayed here”

The guides inside were well-informed, friendly, and the house had more brick a brack than I have ever seen before.

The ladies that show you around this wonderful old house are really full on knowledge and obviously enjoy sharing all of their knowledge with the guests. Don't miss this visit
