If you're into hunted plantations - this is the place to be. Great tours, especially the night one. The service is amazing and you leave happy and scared at the same time. What an amazing experience.

We really loved the tour, the grounds and the tour guide. Stayed the night in the caretakers cottage they even have a breakfast in the morning and the tour is included. A little pricey for cold water shower. Due to not knowing before the night fall. We were the only ones on the property at that time. No tv's ,no... More

Awesome tour guide. Answered all questions and told the stories about the house very well. Didn't see any ghosts but the history of the house is interesting. The grounds are also beautiful and picturesque.

It's a lovely old home. We did the 7 PM mystery tour, which apparently was overbooked since the lady conducting it said if you are uncomfortable with the size of the tour you may get a refund, and they do not give refunds normally. Since it is a bed and breakfast, you were only allowed in 6 rooms, and it... More

I really enjoyed my stay at The Myrtles. The best part was the 8pm Mystery Tour with Tour Guide "Jules". He was an amazing dramatic guy that kept my attention and spooked me the whole tour. GREAT JOB JULES!!

The ghost tour is $10 pp, lasts about 30 minutes, and goes through 5 first floor rooms in the mansion. No tour of the 2nd floor and no photography except in the entrance hall. Save your money.

The Myrtles Plantation calls itself the most haunted home in America. The tour guides are good when it comes to weaving tales about days gone by and the "ghosts" who want to stay around. From handprints on the darkened mirror to faces that appear in photographs (one did in my nephew's camera) to mysterious feelings of woe, the Myrtles earns... More

The grounds are absolutely beautiful! It was worth the time to see the house, take the short tour, and spook each other. I would certainly recommend it as a stopping point, but there are plenty of other things to see and do in the area to spend too much time at the Myrtles.

I've always been obsessed with this beautiful plantation. So when I was finally able to go I was beyond excited. It felt like I was taking a step back through time. Statues and gigantic trees great you when you first drive through the gates.the house has been restored back to its glory days and kept authentic with antiques from the... More
