  • I am from British Columbia Canada and was warmly greeted by my own Santa Chip when my sister and I entered. A lovely home full of history Bobbie in the lunch was able to tell us about as we ate a sandwich and coffee she served us. We were a captive audience and bought some aprons there. What a lovely knowledgeable lady. A sweet southern gem. Thanks so much for a lovely memory to carry home. Merry Christmas Mrs. Betty- Jo Hetherington.
  • Callanwolde is not just any historical location, it is a journey to new adventures. Any time of the year, you will find something new to discover. The staff is diverse, friendly and knowledgeable. Go for a walk, pottery or music you will leave amazed.
  • It was so big and great I had the best time I learned alot of things about that that place
  • Fantastic place to visit. Still owned by Candler family but now leased to Dekalb County as an art center. We'll be there this weekend as part of an art show.
  • My daughter took a book making class this summer. Callanwolde has a wonderful cafe on site-- upstairs in the main building. All week spent time working and chatting with Bobby and Chip... Great folks and great conversations!
