Overnight Stay and Tour
Jun 2021 • Solo
I selected the Myrtles Plantation for an overnight stay because of its storied history and mild curiosity for all things paranormal.
Everything was lovely; my suite was surprisingly huge which I wasn’t expecting in such an old home. It definitely smelled old- very musty and damp. But I loved it all the same! Thankfully- no big paranormal things happened during my stay (I would have been too nervous to sleep!).
This review really isn’t about that though. What really made my experience unique was chatting with and observing some of the staff who were working during my stay. Shelly was super cool; her and I bonded over our many solo travels across the globe. The women who were working in the kitchen when I ate breakfast laughed and got along so well I kinda felt they were sisters. It made me smile :) The woman who opened up my room for me when I arrived also was very sweet and kind. She later said in passing that she was also a teacher which I felt, just based off of what little I knew of her, very appropriate; she was really great interacting with me and other guests! This really sealed the deal for me. I felt like I was staying with close friends :)

We just had a great tour full of colorful stories of the former (and still current) residents of The Myrtles. Our tour guide Tom was the best storyteller. We really enjoyed the tour and walk around the grounds.

Save your money and your time
May 2021
If you are a history buff, intrigued by the lives of enslaved people, enjoy the beauty of older properties....this is NOT where you want to go. No matter what you spend, you will spend far more than it's worth.

The tour consisted of 2-3 rooms on the ground floor. We never saw a bathroom, kitchen, bedroom...nothing. The tour guide told horribly scripted "stories" as we entered each room and mainly focused on the haunted aspects of the house.

There is a restaurant on site with cabins surrounding a pond that can be rented. No education on the lives of enslaved people....just poorly told stories about the wealth of the owners and suggestions of ghostly encounters.

Please don't waste your time. Please don't waste your money.
