  • Rude workers! I try to never do bad reviews but I have to write something for this tour. The actual house was very nice but the tour was not even close to good. They had a female at the entrance that acted like we worked for her. She acted rudely towards us multiple times on situations that she could handle way better. The other person there was a male & he was just as rude. He acted like he was annoyed by us the whole time. The customer service was NOT there at all. At the end we should have been able to hang out by the garden like stated online but the female said they had a "medical emergency" & we had to leave. They closed at like 1pm and posted time is 4pm. I feel bad for the other people with us because they actually paid full price for that. We used Groupon and got over half off our price and I'm so so glad we did.
  • Gorgeous mansion with lots of history! They have daytime tours, as well as weekend nighttime events!
  • Even though they had a wedding setting up and I was the only visitor, they were very gracious.
  • Beautiful Greek Revival, and a lot of pieces are original. A true hidden gem.
  • 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.
