I have and would tell others to go here. We got there early and they let us do the tour early so we didn't have to wait. Very nice people. The house is amazing. The gift shop had many things to choose from.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and told great stories about the house and how things use to be. I just wish there had been a cancellation so we could have stayed the night.

We love that you had a great time on one of our night tours. With the lights set low in the main house it really sets the scene for the history of the Myrtles to come to life. Please come back and see us again...More

Good Morning, There is a slight difference in the tours. Our daily tours focus a little more on the history of the house, while our night tours tell more of the ghost stories. With both tours you do get the background... More
