The land is beautiful. The house of course is outdated because it’s a Plantation but it could be cleaned better. The toilets had rings, tub had hair, toilet wasn’t bolted to the floor well in a bedroom and outside pool bathroom. The smell at first was unpleasant because it’s pet friendly and old/musty. The worst part was the AC upstairs. The central air wasn’t working till the last day and a window unit didn’t work the entire trip. The room was so hot that 4 people paid to sleep in there and couldn’t comfortably. The pool is located in the shade so the water was like ice in late July plus the owners smelly dog swam in it the whole trip. The owners were nice and tried to fix AC but it didn’t get fixed till our last day. Kitchen dishes needed thorough washing before you could use them also. The pit worked well. Washer and dryer worked well. Water was nice and hot for shower time even allowed for numerous people to bathe right behind one another. There a waterfall, nature walk about 4 miles away that was awesome. Overall happy we went and we made great memories but not sure we will be back for the price.…
Desert Plantation is truly a beautiful venue. The ceremony area is meticulously groomed and spectacular. The deck and dancing area are divine. If you are looking for a true southern Plantation wedding, this is your spot!!!!
So if you are well traveled and want something unique and unforgettable, this is it. The hosts are simply amazing and the property is one of a kind. So many of these types of properties have a dark, ugly, slavery, history. Due to it's history, this one does not. You have to get outside and walk around to really get. Checkout the cemetery and the woods nearby. I dare you you to do it at night actually. We've stayed here 1/2 a dozen times over the years and it just gets better.
This is a bit dated, we actually last stayed there in 2014. The plantation itself is wonderful. Grand entrance, big white ball rooms, everything. The house dates to the 1700's and much of the decor is old, from the 1800's to early 1900's. And you can touch things. I wouldn't pull the shotgun out of its case, but if you were wondering what that long black box on the stairs was, you can open it and see it is a shotgun. You can read a book from the library. There are four rooms and they are all cozy and nice. The largest room is, well, large and has a giant bath. The house is pet friendly. The proprietor, Willia, is a sweetheart. She is very laid back. She has taken us in when we called at the last minute. If we are coming in a bit late, she just leaves the door open and tells us our room is the first one to the right, or the top of the stairs to the left. Breakfast is excellent. Willia is catering more to weddings than to B&B these days, but if you can catch a weekend when she is not booked it would be worth it to grab it. We have stayed there before when we were the only ones there, or the house was full and there were 3 other couples. Either way, it feels like you own the place. The grounds are wonderful with a well situated pool and beautiful, old trees. Well worth a visit. …
Beautiful setting, friendly folks. Would be a Gawjus wedding venue beautiful setting and house. Has pool and pond, horses etc. went with friends to take car pictures. Owners were super nice ,well worth a weekend drive to get to , the oak lined road was breathtaking
This is a true hidden treasure. We had a great time, the house & rooms are amazing and the grounds are very beautiful. The hospitality from owners Willia & Bill is absolutely perfect. We really enjoyed the personal atmosphere instead of being a "number" in a hotel, you really feel "at home". They have a swimming pool and you can enjoy their 1000 acres of ground by walking around or using the golf cart :). There are beautiful ponds hidden everywhere, it's great to discover, relax & enjoy the southern hospitality. If I was living in the US I also definitely would have my wedding over there with all my family & friends. I really hope we can go back there someday.
The Desert Plantation is a trip back in time to the glory days of the South. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and this B & B will provide you with spacious rooms, excellent service and a friendly welcome. Each year a number of weddings are held on the grounds and the beautiful rolling country side and beautiful Oak trees makes for a very romantic setting. There are a number of plantations to visit in the area and can make for a very entertaining day. A trip to Greenwood Plantation and Rosedown Plantation are particularly worth while. The town of St. Francisville offers a peak into the mid 1800's and don't miss the ferry landing where you can hop across the Mississippi. When in the Woodvile area an overnight stop at the Desert Plantation is very worthy of your consideration. Many of there guests have made a number of visits.…
I have stayed at Dessert Plantation numerous times over the last 8 years. It is the perfect place to escape from the stress of everyday life. I love stepping back into time. The home and grounds are breathtaking. Walking the property is one of my favorite things to do while there. The old oak trees, quiet little creeks and ponds are beautiful. If you are looking for a place to go to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, Dessert Plantation is the place to go. I love it there!!!
Desert Plantation will take you back in time by staying in this beautiful historic home. It's a super place to have a girls' weekend, a weekend away with your spouse, or celebrate a wedding. I would definitely recommend a visit to Desert!
An overnight visit to Desert is a trip back in time with all the modern comforts. The rural setting is spectacular, the home warm and inviting, and the Perkins are the perfect hosts. Authentic, memoriable hospitality at its best. The Desert Suite was comfortable, quiet, very large with a spacious bathroom. It could not have been more comfortable and inviting.
