The Grand Tour is wonderful and allows access to the entire mansion. You learn not only about the property's history, but also about Charleston in the era. The house itself is beautiful - with incredible woodwork in every room. It is full of art, furniture and other items that are remarkable; a rare collection to be appreciated. This is a very fun tour!

My friend Courtney and I took a private tour this morning and was able to tour with the owner!What an honor to meet and spend so much time with him! An absolute gentleman with such a passion for this home and everything in it!As a true lover of Victorian history I felt like I was in a dream! To see so many beautiful things in one place was an opportunity you seldom get to enjoy! Charleston should be honored and grateful for someone to come in and save one of it's most treasured gems! Will go back over and over! The owner made us feel like we were at home! The owner made us feel like we were at home! We left there feeling like we owed a whole lot more than we paid! Thank you Mr.Stahl for sharing your beautiful home!

This was my 4th Grand Tour, and I've loved each and every one. Having the owner of the home as our tour guide was a rare and wonderful experience. I was able to learn new things about the house and its history, and I loved hearing about the recently acquired pieces. The array of beautiful antiques, rare pieces and oddities are a delight to see and hear about. This is a tour without compare and an opportunity to see not only a wonderful historic home, but also collection of art and artistic pieces you will not find elsewhere. This is a simply amazing tour with each one being different. I look forward to going again next year.
