We just got married here at the end of September. Our guests were so pleased with the beautiful grounds, the fabulous food and the gorgeous ballroom that they cannot stop talking about our wedding. Our ceremony was held on the well-manicured grounds of the mansion. The cocktail hour was held outside among high top tables with delicious hors d'oeuvres passed....

For me it was a first at the Mansion and I was very impressed with the layout and the place. The only negative thing was parking since we did not overnight there, so we had to park somewhere and at night walking to ones car wherever it was was treacherous (uneven side walks). The ceremony and reception was outside and...

Our two night stay with a "living social" discount was perfect. The hotel is beautifully restored, so if you enjoy history and luxury, this is a great place. It's also conveniently situated, a short walk to the downtown restaurants, shops, and tourist services. The staff people were friendly and happy to help with anything. My husband and I felt very...

Our family stayed at the Mansion and held our rehearsal dinner there. Andreea was so helpful and responsive. She was creative and calming when I needed it. The mansion is a gorgeous venue for an occasion like this. The event was magical. The rooms are gorgeous and all different. But as a caution, you have to be able to do...

Booked one of the more expensive rooms for a 2 night stay. Positives- good location in town, and the breakfast offered was excellent. Negatives- The room was on the second floor and required ascent of a bizarre, almost vertical, narrow staircase. Two trips of schlepping luggage up this passageway and I was exhausted. No bellhops here. This room would not...

We spent (3) nights at the Southern Mansion. It was our 1st time, there. Our 1st night was a nightmare. A loud & constant noise prevented us from sleeping. My husband described it as a diesel engine idling. I would describe it as the sound of a jack hammer. The next morning, we told the front desk about it. They...

Expensive (even in the off-season) but beautiful, especially for people who love historic homes (this one built in the 1860s). Lovingly restored, it includes lots of antiques (including in guest rooms), many of which had been stored when the early owners passed away and were discovered when the house was purchased (acc. to one of the staff). The staff were...
