Joan was our tour guide and she was fabulous. It was just my husband and I on the tour. She was VERY knowledgeable and had passion for the history of the house and Savannah. A must see if you are coming to Savannah.

My son and daughter in law were married in the square across the street and had their reception here! It was perfect! The vintage home and outside area is beautiful! The staff can't be beat! There are tours during the day.

If you only tour one mansion I suggest this one...they take you thru two of the three floors and are thorough in their history lesson. Our guide was Richard (I believe!) and was very patient with questions and just delightful. We actually just happened onto...More
