The house is very impressive, beautifully maintained and authentic. But even better is Joanna, our tour guide. Her insight into the history and the occupants of the place made it come alive. Well worth the money if you have any interest in history and the...More

      We, 2 couples, really enjoyed the whole experience of our tour of the estate. The place is so very interesting as is the family responsible for it. We toured the house, led by our excellent docent Beth. After the grand tour through a grand house,...More

      We received a tour by a very knowledgeable docent who had first hand experience with preparing the estate for tourists since before its opening. She presented authentic information and background stories. The home architecture, outside and in, is very interesting to the details of the...More

      We had a great time on the tour. It is nice to get to go in every room. The grounds are beautiful in the summer.

      This is a very nice house built around 1920. The staff is exceptionally friendly and very helpful. The tour takes well over an hour and is very informative. Recommend.

      Toured the estate after visiting the Azalea Storytelling Festival in LaGrange the first week in March - a little too early for the flowers, but the festival was well worth the trip and the home and gardens were amazing!

      We went here because of TripAdvisor reviews. It is a fabulous house to visit. No roped off areas and everything was left as is when the last owner departed. There are 3 floors and quite a few steps but worth the walk. You have a...More

      The amazing gardens on this estate were designed in the 19840s by a wealthy slave owner named Sarah Ferrell. Unfortunately, in describing the history of the property, the current owners prefer to white-washed the fact that its huge gardens were planted and maintained by enslaved...More

      My husband and I visited the gardens of Hills & Dales Estate on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 13. He had done all the research and I don't think he even knew how wonderful it would be. Truly the website doesn't do it justice. The gardens...More

      After noting Hills and Dales Estate on a list of public gardens in the area, we opted to check it out on a sunny Saturday. This place seems to do less advertising than other similar venues, as we had never heard of it before. Once...More

      A stunning Georgian-Italian mansion, filled with history & elegance. The gardens & grounds are enough to make most Master Gardeners green with envy! The docent, of our tour (Clairinelle) was charming, knowledgeable, and truly enjoyed sharing the Callaway family history with her visitors. If you...More
