We stayed one night at The Myrtles, and went through the night ghost tour. The tour guide was amazing, and the plantation was beautiful. The bed was very hard and creaky, but all the furnishings were original ad very old. We did not have a ghost made known to us, but the next morning, my eyeglasses were hidden away in... More

We stayed upstairs in the Fannie Williams Room, which is the room the children died in.. It was a pretty expensive price to pay to sleep in a bed that was that hard and have to share a bathroom with another room.. Overall, the home and the grounds were beautiful. Breakfast was free, hot and delicious. Everything supper at the... More

I stayed in April in 2015. I originally had a traveling companion who became ill prior to the trip, so I traveled alone, staying in the Judge Woodruff Suite at the top of the famous stairs. I joined in a tour once I arrived. They were informative as to the history of the home, with an occasional ghost story thrown... More

Thought tour guide hammed it up a little but it made for entertaining tour. Nothing spooky that we saw or heard but talked with couple who spent night in cottage and the woman heard children playing in the night. Can only take photo of mirror inside. Also operates as a B&B so you can only see a few rooms on... More

Paid for a tour we were told would be at 4:00. Lots of people waiting around for the 4:00 tour, not just us. At 4:20 I asked when it would start and was told they were waiting on a couple more people that hadn't shown up yet. I got a refund because I couldn't justify spending my money And more... More

We absolutely loved it and we got to see the beautiful picturesque house and grounds but we also experienced some of the paranormal activity that does go along with it. We will definitely go back!!! The food was amazing.

We spent a night in one of the rooms in the old plantation house. slept with a light on, as did the people in the next room.The grounds are breathtaking and the staff are VERY down to earth and enjoyable. We're going back and staying in that old house again! If you want different, look no further than the Myrtles.

The best part of this plantation was the grounds, beautiful moss covered trees, lovely grounds. The mystery tour was interesting, with historic facts yet the hauntings, legends and ghosts...that you have to decide or believe for yourself. The photos we took while touring the grounds turned out beautifully.

My friends and I did a haunted tour at night. The tour guide made the experience a lot of fun. She was very dramatic and mixed in a lot of humor to make the tour very enjoyable. I would recommend you do the night tour when you are in the St. Francisville.

We headed to St. Francisville after spending several days in New Orleans and decided to have dinner at the Carriage House at The Myrtles followed by a Mystery tour of the plantation house that evening. Reservations are done separately and 90 minutes is suggested for dinner prior to the start of the tour; that proved to be spot on for... More
