  • If this house tour was only one of several on a 'tour of homes' program, it would (at best) be okay; given its current state. But, quite simply it isn't worth the $12 'tour' fee, and even if money was no object I'd keep this house at the bottom of my tour list. Indeed, its exterior provides more interest than its interior. As a stand alone (on going) house tour, it takes advantage of tourists who presume a certain amount of historic significance or intrigue, whether building or people related.
  • We are into visiting mansions and the ones in Savannah are special because of the people who owned them and the civil war. Good guides to tell you the story.
  • Beautiful european style wedding venue, perfect for intimate weddings in the courtyard.
  • As opposed to the Davenport House Museum, HF was a much nicer experience and we were allowed to interact with the authentic, original pieces in the house. Tour lady was sweet and the house was beautiful. 4 stars because the don't tour the basement or top-most floor. Would do this again.
