I would recommend you checkout the Rosedown plantation instead. There is simply more to see at the Rosedown plantation since every room can be explored.

Everyone was very nice and friendly. Enjoyed the house tour, however the Caretakers Cottage we stayed in was extremely pricey for the accommodations. Clean, but small and no amenities to speak of. Definitely a one time visit.

A beautiful plantation with an interesting story. We were married there in 1985 and still love to visit when we near. Hester is a wonderful guide with a vast knowledge of the house's history. A must for all Louisiana residents and visitors.

Very nice place. It was beautiful. John and Morgan Moss are wonderful innkeepers. Cain makes the best biscuits and scones. Piper was a great storyteller. The ladies at the check in desk were lovely. Very hospitable. The rooms were clean and tidy but the stairs going up to them were very steep and the beds were very comfortable but were... More

We spent 3 nights at The Myrtles Plantation. Staff is amazingly friendly and down to earth. This place is gorgeous - well worth the trip.

Saint Francisville is known for its beauty. I love this place, and not for its ghost stories. It's stunningly beautiful and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Bring a camera!

It was a crew of 5 of my best girls including myself for a Sunday stay. We stayed in the Garden rooms which were cozy and we were informed that they are getting renovated really soon so they'll be even better! The staff was warm and welcoming and made us feel very at home. The grounds are GORGEOUS! The trees... More

My wife and I took the Myrtles tour. ($10/pp). The tour guide was informative and interesting. She detailed the history of the house and it's various inhabitants taking the small tour group room by room. Much was discussed about the 'haunted' past especially the mirror that discolors repeatedly. This is a rather small building and only the downstairs is shown.... More
