It was very quiet very secluded, you did not know anyone else was in the building. the accommodations were extremely authentic ! breakfast was amazing ! You got a great feel for what it was like to live in that time, Other than having your own bathroom ! We would stay there again in a heartbeat .

My wife and I went to this plantation for a tour, since it was one of the most 'intact' according to the literature. The signage to the house is terrible. Once parked outside, there were no signs, no name, no hours, no way to know what door to enter. The person answering the door and giving the tour seemed put... More

Enjoyed our stay on the property at Mattie's House. It's a large cottage on the property and very quiet and private. Explored the family cemetary, took the tour of the main house and enjoyed a magnificent breakfast in the main house. Took the time to hike at Clarks Creek while there and explored a number of the waterfalls.

After calling most of the B&Bs in the area and being rudely turned down and told to turn around (then hung up on), we found this place at a great price! Ms. Mary was so sweet and accomodating even with a broken foot and the grounds wete absolutely breathtaking. There were fresh cut flowers in each room and the plantation... More

This home has been preserved rather than restored. And it has been there long enough to host Andrew Jackson after the Battle of New Orleans. It lacks the granduer of the river plantations but instead offers comfortable beds (high four posters), friendly pets, full southern breakfast, fresh flowers, spacious grounds and a very quiet night.

Mattie's House porch is great but the inside is very 70s & smells odd. The fresh flower vases were a sweet touch though. Breakfast was the standard eggs/bacon/grits/biscuit. My biggest issue with this plantation (& we've stayed at many) was all the JUNK. EVERYWHERE. The owners need to either hall out all the broken refrigerators, dilapidated cars, etc or store... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night out of town for our anniversary and we had a great time. The furry trio of "greeters" met us at the door and our room was a great mix of new and old. Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed both the tour and a relaxing walk of the property. For... More

There is charm but they need to spend on keeping the rooms cleaner. This includes the a/c / heater blowing dust. I was chocking for several days on this. There is a gigantic water stain on the fabric decoration over the bed. Some of the outbuildings are run down and with a bit more tiding up it could just be... More
