Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. This tour is much different from other historical home tours in the area and made a fun afternoon for our group.

WE'VE BEEN TO MANY MANSIONS OVER THE YEARS; NEWPORT, ASHEVILLE, FLAGLER, ETC. CALHOUN IS A BEAUTIFUL STRUCTURE BUT OVERSHADOWED BY THE ACCUMULATION OF 'STUFF' (albeit very valuable "stuff". WE THINK IT DETRACTS FROM THE HANDSOME HOME IT IS. I KNOW THERE'S A STORY BEHIND EACH AND EVERY ITEM IN THE HOME BUT IT'S A LITTLE OVERWHELMING. SO LONG STORY SHORT: WE'RE GLAD WE CAME AND WOULD RECOMMEND ANY FRIENDS TO ALSO VISIT BUT WOULD LIKE TO SEE LESS 'STUFF".

Our tour guide, very pretty blond, loaded with historical information was so nice! The vast amount of historical memorabilia was explained to us and the preservationist motive of the owner, who we caught a glimpse of, made this congromolation of priceless artifacts so meaningful. Thank you, well worth our time and increased knowledge!
