It was one hour of ghost stories, a little Hokey,but fun, the rooms are way over priced. If you really want to see something old and really interesting Go to visit The Cottages just up HWY 61

The Myrtles is such a different plantation than the rest in Louisiana. It's all about the ghosts! The other plantations talk about the history and their role in shaping Louisiana culture, but not The Myrtles. Stay in a room for a night, if you dare. Jules was a great guide as his stories added a lot of drama and fun... More

The myrtles is a beautiful and interesting and very different kind of plantation home. This home has a fantastic story to tell but it gets lost by the mystery which seems to be what is selling here.I feel the furniture collection is somewhat week compared to other plantations in the area (lot of european furniture that seems pretty inappropriate) ,...

This place is beautiful. If you are visiting for the day try to talk with some of the guest who have stayed overnight. We spoke to a group a ladies about their supernatural experiences. They had brought toys for the ghosts to play with and they kept going off all night. The house and grounds are lovely. You can walk... More

First off, the staff at Myrtles are fantastic. They are all wonderful, friendly, helpful people and my sister and I felt very welcomed during our stay at Myrtles. Secondly, I watched another guest hand a list of suggestions over to the owner about improving the Bed and Breakfast aspect of Myrtles Plantation, and the owner was very gracious and took... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Myrtles overnight and actually had the Caretakers Shack in the back. The tour was ok but the guide kinda played towards some young girls in the group and became a little disrupting. We are a little annoyed that they didnt allow pictures to be taken. The people in the store were great and... More

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.
