“Oasis in the city”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Beautiful property and grounds. Enjoyed the furnishings and imagining living there. Disappointed that a third of the house is locked up and not viewable. Don't plan on eating at the carriage house unless you've got on your preppy clothes - it was full of socialite women with a haughty attitude.

“Fun”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

It was really interesting learning about the history of this house and really fun looking at the furnishings some a thousand years old, really disappointed that one room was being restored so furnishings weren't in it and that the dining table wasn't in place and that the husbands bedroom wasn't open

“Southern elegance”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

What a lovely place to visit! We really enjoyed a glimpse back into the roaring twenties at the Swan House and the gardens and farm were also very pleasant. This place offers something for everyone.

“Gorgeous Mansion”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I love old mansions and this one does not disappoint. Built in 1928 it is a perfect example of late 1920's extravagance. Apparently, this home was used in the Hunger Games as the President's house. Whether you are a fan of the books and movies or not this old Grand Dame is worth a visit. Especially if you like mansions and old homes!
