A stunning Georgian-Italian mansion, filled with history & elegance. The gardens & grounds are enough to make most Master Gardeners green with envy!

We loved this place!!! We toured the massive gardens and enjoyed the beautiful flowers. Our docent, Beth, was very thorough in her tour of the house. It's full of history of the Callaway Family. Beautiful restorations and original pieces throughout.

Took the grandson to the Christmas event. Outstanding! If you love history and nature this is the place. The Callaways were true visionaries and humanitarians as well as lovers of the land.

This is one very well maintained estate and with excellent guides to develop the history of the building and of the city and its heritage. An usual experience near Atlanta, but far enough away to be removed from the clatter of the cityl

A great estate. Fantastic state of up keeping and cheerful people helping you to find your way around. Guided tour excellent, free time in the gardens was a welcoming break in nature. The gardens always have something blooming or colorful.

Our tour took about an hour 15 minutes or so. Part of this tour is self guided, the garden portion. So you can adjust depending on your schedule. It was 15 dollars for admission.
