“Repeat visitor”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

We don't tire of taking out-of-town visitors to the Swan House. It's a gracious step back in time with a good story tour.

“Everyone in Georgia Should visit.”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

Great History day for us when we visited. This was my 80 yr old grandmother's first visit. She thoroughly enjoyed it being the lover of history that she is. This was my fourth time visiting. My first time was on a field trip when I was in elementary school.

“If you've seen other historical houses, skip it!”
Reviewed 26 April 2012 via mobile

The photos on the website ( big front columns, etc) led us to believe that the Swan House was going to be a quintessential Southern mansion. Our mistake! We should have read the description more carefully. This house was built in 1928 and is decorated in a Federal style and while somewhat interesting, is definitely the house of a upper middle class businessman not some millionaire Atlanta society family. If yiunhave seen other historical houses, you might want to skip this one. We were disappointed in the tour too. The house might have been more interesting if the tour guide had done more talking about the lifestyle that went on in the house. For example, the kitchen had lots of cooking tools from the 30's in it, but the guide did little to bring them to life. Fortunately,none of the people on the tour started asking lots of questions which livened things up and engaged the group more. That said, the gardens and grounds around the house are well worth exploring. The Quarry Garden is a real gem!

“Got engaged here!”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

I got engaged at the Swan house and it was absolutely amazing. I felt like a princess. The gardens were spectacular, the view from the balcony was dreamy. My family was waiting down below with champagne and well wishes. GREAT experience!
