Immerse yourself in history and grandeur while visiting Milledgeville, Georgia's 19th century capital. The Rockwell House (c. 1838) is a recently restored 14-room Federal/Greek Revival house that was once home to a Georgia governor. Relax and entertain with a delightfully fresh interior design blended with breathtaking historic architectural features and antiques. Enjoy the peaceful sounds of the self-playing grand piano or take a quiet moment to explore the fenced 12-acre grounds and pond.

The space
With 14 ft ceilings and 20x20 rooms, the scale of the Rockwell House is awe-inspiring. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, each room features historic hand-crafted architectural details. After being greeted by the show-stopping spiral staircase in the main foyer, you'll find ornate touches throughout the home including custom hewn wainscoting, hand-pulled plaster cornices, and marble fireplaces. Complementing the historically accurate restoration are modern amenities like 5 new bathrooms, a new luxury kitchen with Viking appliances, and all new heating, air, and electrical – the best way to experience a historic house! Individual guest rooms are also available if you do not want to rent the whole house.

Where you’ll be

Milledgeville, Georgia, United States

While only two miles from downtown Milledgeville, the house feels a word away on 12 acres – fenced and gated! Swing through Blackbird Coffee before visiting nearby historic sites including Georgia's Old Governor's Mansion, the Old Capital Heritage Center, Central State Hospital, Andalusia (home of Flannery O'Connor), and the Old State Capitol (now Georgia Military College). Enjoy shopping and lunch downtown or take in Milledgeville's beautiful scenery with a walk along the Oconee River Greenway or boat ride on Lake Sinclair.
