We absolutely loved it and we got to see the beautiful picturesque house and grounds but we also experienced some of the paranormal activity that does go along with it. We will definitely go back!!! The food was amazing.

We spent a night in one of the rooms in the old plantation house. slept with a light on, as did the people in the next room.The grounds are breathtaking and the staff are VERY down to earth and enjoyable. We're going back and staying in that old house again! If you want different, look no further than the Myrtles.

The best part of this plantation was the grounds, beautiful moss covered trees, lovely grounds. The mystery tour was interesting, with historic facts yet the hauntings, legends and ghosts...that you have to decide or believe for yourself. The photos we took while touring the grounds turned out beautifully.

My friends and I did a haunted tour at night. The tour guide made the experience a lot of fun. She was very dramatic and mixed in a lot of humor to make the tour very enjoyable. I would recommend you do the night tour when you are in the St. Francisville.

We headed to St. Francisville after spending several days in New Orleans and decided to have dinner at the Carriage House at The Myrtles followed by a Mystery tour of the plantation house that evening. Reservations are done separately and 90 minutes is suggested for dinner prior to the start of the tour; that proved to be spot on for... More

Great to learn the history of the plantation wish the tour was a little longer. Stayed in the caretakers cottage. Breakfast was good.

Great staff, great people, comfortable room. Considerate people. We will be going back in April. We visited in January and it was very, very cold but they did everything necessary to keep us comfortable and happy.

The staff was great no doubt about that. Our room was clean and they even let us check in early. Down side it's severly overpriced. I wouldn't stay here again. It was one of those things that past history has sparked curiosity.

Loved the Friday night mystery tour. My relatives love history and were so impressed with the details of the history of the house. Plus, the mystery tour is more about the "hauntings", so that made it even more special.
