A beautiful plantation including a tour by owners who provide a thorough historical explanation for guests at their excellent on site B&B. It's in a picturesque rural setting on 300 acres near the Mississippi River just north of St Francisville, LA which was an 1800s commercial river port like Natchez and Vicksburg, MS.
We stayed at Greenwood recently and enjoyed the beauty and quiet of the well manicured grounds and clean rooms. The tour and plantation history by the Pilcher’s was very interesting and entertaining. Thanks Julie and Stacey for all your assistance.
The Greenwood Plantation property is located off an old country road, which makes it more secluded and private. We stayed there recently at the bed and breakfast during the Memorial Day Holiday and we slept in the Hillard Barrow Room which is located facing the parking lot and horse pasture. The rooms on the other side offers great views of the historic home. The room was very clean and comfortable. The rate includes a nicely prepared breakfast and a tour of the home in the morning. The owners Julie and Hal treated us like family! We really enjoyed meeting them and they made our experience more enjoyable. The dining room where the breakfast is served, offers great views of the pond and the beautiful plantation home. There are also complimentary light snacks like chocolate chip cookies, granola bars, bottled water, and bagged ice offered to the bed and breakfast guests in the dining room along with some board games. At night, we enjoyed watching the fireflies flying around the majestic oak trees. It was truly a magical experience. We would highly recommend this fabulous place! We are looking forward to returning back again to stay in the near future.…
We had a great time in this peaceful and idyllic location spending our time walking the grounds and enjoying the beauty. Everyone from Hal and Julie, the owners to Mary and Stacey are super friendly and ready to please. Our room across the pond was super comfortable, roomy, and spotless. We enjoyed sitting out on the rocking chair sipping a beverage. The breakfast was sumptuous. Waffles with blueberries, English muffins with sausage and scrambled eggs. The free tour of the mansion and it's varied owners, displaced history, and interesting movie tidbits was well organized by Mary.
Since staying at Greenwood, we have now stayed at Nottoway and Oak Alley. The cabin at Greenwood was way more comfortable than either of these though the Oak Alley cabin was also characterful. The view from the Greenwood cabin was a dream and although it has been entirely reconstructed, the owner's explanation of its history and its reconstruction was just as interesting as other histories. Tour of the house was also free with the stay unlike Oak Alley. Greenwood's oak alley, a bit wonky, is way more atmospheric than Oak Alley and photographs better as the latter has now been destroyed by a brick path which dominates the middle of it. All in all, having now experienced some of the other plantation stays on offer, I can't recommend Greenwood highly enough. It was certainly our favourite stay by a country mile.…
Rooms are comfortable, spacious and clean. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. The view is spectacular. This was our second time to stay here at Greenwood Plantation. We will definitely stay again next year.. if not before.
My wife and I wanted to a short quiet getaway for our 40th anniversary. We chose the Greenwood Plantation B&B. It was a perfect choice. The room was immaculate and the view of the mansion across the mirror pond at night was beautiful. The breakfast was excellent especially if you like waffles with blueberries. Julie provided a very interesting tour of the mansion and her knowledge of the history of the plantation in its glory days of the early 1800s was fascinating. We highly recommend this B&B in the St. Francisville area and plan on returning!
When we arrived we were greeted by this beautiful plantation and it was SO quiet. Our room was immaculately clean. I have never stayed any place as clean as this. The room was cozy and smelled lovely and had TWO places to sit outside, one balcony and a front porch. There was no one there and we felt like we had the place to ourselves. Best of all, the hospitality room was open for us and there were fresh cookies and drinks, snacks and games. We walked around the beautiful grounds and sat outside and just enjoyed the nature and the peace. In the morning, Stacy made us a delicious breakfast of waffles and bacon and fruit and she went above and beyond waiting on us. The owner of the plantation herself gave us a tour of the house after breakfast and we enjoyed it immensely. These people are special, wonderful hosts. I truly wish we had more time here. This is one of the best places I have ever visited in my 40 years.…
We stayed for one night for a small getaway. Everyone was very accommodating. Breakfast was great. The grounds are gorgeous and it’s very secluded from town but not too far from other activities. Took the owner’s recommendation and checked out Clark’s Creek (15 minutes away) and were not disappointed! Would absolutely stay again!
We stayed two nights May 28 and 29 for a bike ride, the St. Francisville Gran Fondo. We will be back. This place was delightful! The owners thought of every amenity. Rooms are large, property is quiet, water pressure blows you away, and we had a beautiful view of the mansion. There were rockers with blankets out front (and citronella candles just in case). The room even had TV tables. The dining room is well stocked with snacks and extra water. We arrived really late Friday, but met an owner Julie, the next day. She couldn’t have been more helpful. We had to leave early Sunday and a big to go breakfast was packed and ready for us. We couldn’t have been happier. I highly recommend visiting!!
