Our tour was conducted by an outstanding Voodoo Priest named Roby. He brought the history alive and made you feel like you where in the past witnessing the events unfold. Hats off to an outstanding young man. Food however was just so so not really southern or good seafood. Pricey also.

Just walked around the grounds after visiting Rosedown, which we preferred as it was far grander. There was a cottage which was not signposted so we were unsure if it was an old slaves cottage or not. The Myrtles seemed to be busy funnelling bus loads through the gift shop.

A group of us coordinated our stays so that we could investigate as much of the plantation as possible. We had 4 of the rooms in the main house, 2 of the garden cottages, and the caretakers house. It was a dream come true for all of us paranormal investigators to be there for 2 nights! My friend and I... More

Enjoyed the beauty of the home with the long front verandah, the towering old crepe myrtles and live oaks draped with Spanish moss. The inside of the home was interesting as well as the tales of murder and the ghost stories.

This was a nice small plantation home and it had onsite cabins and a gift store. It was a nice tour for $10. Interesting history. Schedule about an hour and take the tour. Very calming, considering they claim to have ghosts living there!

We've wanted to experience the Myrtles for while. We took the Mystery tour at $12 per person and learned about the history of the home and the creepy things that have happened there. They do not sell books on the Myrtles at their gift shop, so going on the tour is really the only way to learn these stories. The... More

I hate anything to do with horror or scare tactics, but went one afternoon for a stroll around the plantation. It is a nice place, I wouldn't stay there ever, but it seems nice enough and I know plenty of others who have. All "mysterious" scare tactics aside, its a nice place.

My husband and I loved our stay at the Myrtles! Remember, it is NOT A hotel! But it has the most friendliest, hospitable, fun, it is clean, not anything like past reviews I have read!! None of it is true! Our room was lovely, cozy, we slept fine on a comfortable mattress. The restaurant was wonderful, slightly pricey, but hey,,... More

We stayed one night at The Myrtles, and went through the night ghost tour. The tour guide was amazing, and the plantation was beautiful. The bed was very hard and creaky, but all the furnishings were original ad very old. We did not have a ghost made known to us, but the next morning, my eyeglasses were hidden away in... More

We stayed upstairs in the Fannie Williams Room, which is the room the children died in.. It was a pretty expensive price to pay to sleep in a bed that was that hard and have to share a bathroom with another room.. Overall, the home and the grounds were beautiful. Breakfast was free, hot and delicious. Everything supper at the... More
