If your looking for history and the spirits that managed to slip through time, you will love the Myrtles.
Please understand this is not a Hilton Hotel but a very old plantation house.
I went there because I'm fascinated with the Victorian Era.
There are no TVs or radio's but you can bring a laptop and have access to the net.
Ouija Boards are NOT allowed.
The reason for that is because you could be allowing and evil entity to cross through.
The bathrooms are a tad bit small but you must remember that this house was built in the Victorian Era.
Bathrooms weren't heard of then. Maybe out houses and bed chamber pots, but that's all.
So they had to add on bathrooms.
Pictures can only be taken on the grounds, in your room, and of a haunted mirror.
The reason for that is because the lights from the camera's make the old antique fabrics fade more.
They are trying very hard to keep the antiques intact and in the best condition they can.
Some guests were nice enough to show me their rooms when I asked to see theirs and in return I had let them see mine.
The atmosphere is very great and staff are very friendly.
The plantation is very old so you have to expect creaky floorboards and staircases.
The owners restored the home, the best that they could without destroying it, to its former glory.
They don't allow food nor drinks in the rooms due to the antiques that are in it.
Smoking inside is also not allowed, again due to the antiques but also in respect for other guests.
There are rockers on the veranda where you can sit and chat, and also smoke.
If you don't feel like sitting on a rocker you can always sit on the wrought iron chairs that are surrounding wrought iron tables.
As for keys, you get a set of two.
One will open the main door while the other opens the bedroom door to your room.
There are thermostats for each individual room so don't worry about being too hot or too cold, just set it to the temperature you are comfortable with.
Mystery tours are held on weekends, this will fill you I'm on history and ghost stories alike.
The history tours are just that, history about house and people who owned it.
The couple of times I've went, I have never seen a child of a young age.
Most of the people who I have seen there were around the ages 16 on up.
If you love the Victorian Era, along with some good southern hospitality, this place is definitely for you.
Before you leave be sure to grab some delicious, mouth-watering, southern breakfast!
There's homemade pecan butter, biscuits, grits, gravy, sausage, jams, juice, and coffee.
You will leave with a smile on your face and a stomach full of food!
