I've been wanting to come to the Myrtles Plantation for over 15 years. I was extremely excited as this was also my first B&B experience. It was sad to hear about the fire and I'm glad the house wasn't damaged. The trailer is kind of an eye sore when you first pull in, but what can you do? The ladies... More

Only positive thing I have to say is that the house/grounds are beautiful. Really takes you back to the way things were back then. 1) when I reserved the room we were promised a ghost tour, not a historic tour and I quote "We reserve spots for all of our guests for the ghost tour" Not true! I ended up... More

Was very interested to see for ourselves if this "plantation" was haunted or not. While not a plantation in my mind's eye, I could see how it was considered one back in the 1800's. I have to say I was not overly impressed with the overall experience and the room we stayed in was adequate. There are no televisions, which... More

My friend and I had a wonderful experience. We were greeted with smiles and left wanting to return. The grounds were beautiful. The tour with Lisa was awesome. You could really feel her enthusiasm for Louisiana history. We will most definitely be making a return trip. Very relaxing!!

Came all the way from Los Angeles to New Orleans for the Saints/Greenbay game this past week - Geaux Saints! Anyway, rented a car for the day and we drove up to Mrytles. Was really looking forward to this part of our vacation as Mrytles was featured on several T.V. shows for being the "most haunted plantation in the country".... More

This was our second trip to the Myrtles in September and it was very disappointing. We arrived to find that the store and kitchen building had a fire during August and was shut down. All business was conducted out of a trailer and there really wasn't a gift shop at all - a few t-shirts... It was so nice to... More

My husband and I stayed in the Crepe Myrtle cottage, it was wonderful. Very spacious and we enjoyed not having a TV, but rocking in the chairs on the front porch in the evening. Our tour was fabulous. Miss Lisa was very friendly and informative. We loved it, thank you Miss Lisa!! When I think of Southern hospitality i will... More
