Great to learn the history of the plantation wish the tour was a little longer. Stayed in the caretakers cottage. Breakfast was good.

Great staff, great people, comfortable room. Considerate people. We will be going back in April. We visited in January and it was very, very cold but they did everything necessary to keep us comfortable and happy.

The staff was great no doubt about that. Our room was clean and they even let us check in early. Down side it's severly overpriced. I wouldn't stay here again. It was one of those things that past history has sparked curiosity.

Loved the Friday night mystery tour. My relatives love history and were so impressed with the details of the history of the house. Plus, the mystery tour is more about the "hauntings", so that made it even more special.

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!!
