Amazing venue, amazing people!
This venue was more than we even imagined! It is so beautiful and everyone was so helpful and kind from the day we submitted our request for our date, throughout our entire event. Someone was always there to answer any questions we had, they made sure everyone ran smoothly on our big day, and most importantly everyone was very nice, professional, and open to help with anything we needed. We highly recommend using the Mackey House!Sent on 09/08/2019

The Mackey House is a very elegant venue. I have been catering there for 15 years. It is a brides dream wedding venue.
I have been privileged to provide the ceremony music at the Mackey House many times over the years. Every time I enter the grounds I am amazed at the beauty of the place and the consistent professionalism of the staff. Any wedding or event at the Mackey House is, and will be spectacular.
Rustic and Serene. This venue moves you away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Savannah. Great Parking and can accommodate large groups!
