This house tour did not disappoint! It's as beautiful inside as it is outside. We were the only people on our tour so I feel like we got a more in depth tour than most. The history behind the restoration of the house completely fascinated...More

Just been to a wedding here and although the house is very beautiful we were made to feel like we were un wanted guests. The elderly gentleman left in change whilst the wedding was on complained about the guitarist being too loud continually which was...More

My friend and I really enjoyed our visit. Beautiful home with many original and home owner furnishings. I recommend adding it to your tour list.

Always helps to have a guide who is interested and interesting. Lots of Washington connections to the house, and made me want to investigate the Order of Cincinnatus.

We were told by an employee that if we were there before 4pm we could get in and see the house, so we rushed on foot across several blocks and got there at 3:45. The man who came to the door said he was giving...More

What a find! Not a house I would have visited normally when going to Savannah, but totally worth it! Found sort of by accident. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the house, it’s history, and Savannah in general. Four stars because of the...More
