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

I have been on a couple of different tours of this famous "haunted" plantation home. We recently took our granddaughters on a nighttime ghost tour. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Not too scary, but great storytelling by our guide and lots of history learned. Would highly recommend this tour if you are in the area. They also have a nice... More

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 wonderful place to visit. We had a fantastic tour of the plantation home. Everyone on the plantation was wonderful. The staff was very knowledgeable, and courteous. We are looking forward to our return visit. A big shout out to Mr. Robert, who can only be described as a "good cup of coffee" lol....We have been wanting... 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) ,...
