  • Great place very interesting and beautiful. This is where sweet home Alabama was filmed. Tour guide was great and very informative of things and answered all our questions. We visited on my birthday Aug 6 2021. All my life I have lived in this area but have never visited here glad I finally did however.
  • My group visited Oak Hill because of Sweet Home Alabama. When our tour guide learned that, she told us she could make the tour Sweet Home Alabama centered. She told us lots of info about filming, etc, but still gave us some info about Marth Berry, which was very interesting. After the tour, she let us walk the grounds and take pictures. It is an absolutely beautiful place and even though we came for SHA, we left with an appreciation for Marth Berry.
  • Every time we go to Rome we always say we will go here but just drive past. This time, we finally pulled in. I’m glad we did. This is such a beautiful place and I learned a lot from our experience. We had to wait foe about 5-10 min for our tour guide and then followed her up to the house (I thought it made more sense to ride in the trolley with the tour guide but whatever). She explained the home and a lot of interesting facts. I had no idea Sweet Home Alabama was filmed here which is neat (well some scenes were). My son kept asking a lot of questions and she answered all of them. After the tour she left and we went outside and were able to roam around on our own. We took our time exploring and had a lot of fun. I recommend coming here.
  • Berry College's grounds are very impressive. Lovely landscapes, plentiful wildlife, and impressive buildings. Oak Hill, Martha Berry's home and the nearby musem are well worth a stop. There is a reason this mansion and the adjoining grounds have been used for movie shoots. Mary Grace was our guide and she did a great job. Her knowledge enthusiasm was infectious.
  • I'll be honest, my husband and I only came here because I wanted to see the house from Sweet Home Alabama. We got there just after the last tour of the day had been taken down to get the tour of the house, but a kind young guy offered to take us down anyway. We caught up with the tour that had only just begun seeing the house. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgable about the house and the life of Martha Berry and made the tour very interesting. She even answered almost all of the questions one of the other guests had about the structure of the building and materials used (which was a LOT). Everything was gorgeous and well kept and everyone working there was so kind.
