I've always wanted to visit The Myrtles. The drive up to the beautiful old plantation home was lovely. We were met immediately by the caretaker, Robert, who showed us great hospitality and helped us get our bags up the extremely steep staircase to the William Winters Room. I would not recommend this room, because it has a very small bathtub... More

I stayed here a few years ago and did the tour back then as part of my stay. I was given a hybrid ghost/day tour since I was the only person on it and it was really interesting. The woman doing the tour squashed a lot of the rumors (namely the whole Chloe story) and told the real history behind... More

Very exciting place to visit if you believe in ghosts. It is even better if you spend the night there and request to stay the night in the main house. You will have several experiences that will make you a true believer. A must see.

Best guided tour I have ever experienced. Interaction instead of routine presentation made it fun and interesting. There are ghosts on the property and evidence of it. Grounds are very beautiful. You can rent cottages.

This is a plantation which provides tours of the house. The tour hostess did a good job explaiing the history of the house. You can also stay in the rooms there, although they are apparently haunted ad people frequently leave i the middle of the night. There is also a restaurant on the grounds.

I have wanted to visit Myrtles since I was in my early teens. This year my husband and I went for our 3 yr anniversary. I had so much fun. Although I couldn't get myself to stay up past 9. Lol. No tv, the bed squeaked but only getting in and out. There was nothing that bothered enough to dislike... More

We very much enjoyed the tour of this plantation but did have problems understanding the tour guide even after we asked him to speak slower. I am pretty sure we were not the only ones having trouble understand what he was saying. He was a very nice young man and friendly but maybe a bit nervous. You can only tour... More
