“Be Careful if you stay here!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Be very careful if you stay here. My make up bag and a hair brush were stolen from our room while we were at Sequoia National Forest for the day. The room was locked when we left and locked when we got back. It cost me $250 to replace the items that were taken. Obviously, I would not recommend staying here.

The Plantation B & B has been owned and operated by the same 2 people for 17 years and has had over 43,000 guests. NEVER have we had an issue with theft from a guests room. We often do fine items that a guest has left in their room after departure and we box them up and mail them to them. Would someone really want to steal another persons hairbrush and make up?

We stumbled on the Plantation b&b on a trip to Sequoia.

The property is not very large, as they have five rooms or so total. The rooms and the property are decorated with Gone With the Wind memorabilia. The rooms are large enough and all have toilet and bathroom inside. However, in the room we had, the bathtub was in the room itself -- there was no separation other than the shower curtain.

The common area has a fireplace and a TV with a large selection of VHS cassette tapes of various older films.

The owners serve breakfast from 0800 - 0830. The orange juice and mueslix were great, but the rest - eggs in particular - were not very good.

The place has a feeling of slow abandonment, and it feels that it hasn't been refreshed in a long time. In fact, there were fliers advertising the b&b's sale during our visit. $575,000 for whomever is interested.

This bed & breakfast was very charming. I'll start with the good stuff: very nicely decorated, LOVED the Gone with the Wind theme, nice pool & grounds, great location, very clean, hosts were nice, good morning glory muffins at breakfast. The things that weren't as good were: I could always clearly hear the neighbors in the next room even when they were talking in normal voices. Usually we have the TV on when we stay in bed & breakfasts to buffer the sound but there wasn't one. The lack of TV is our fault though as we should have checked that out before we booked. The wi-fi went in and out alot and the breakfast didn't have much selection. The first day we were there, the only choices besides yogurt & fruit were salsa muffins and chile relienos (not sure of spelling). I don't really like spicy things for breakfast so I would have liked to have had some other choices. Also, we had the Scarlett room and the quality of the bed could have been better. I thought it was a little pricey compared to what we've paid for B&B's in the past. In general though, I thought this place was very nice and we would recommend it!

We arrived late afternoon without a booking and was welcomed by Marie. She gave us a tour and selection of the rooms available. She also may a recommendation for dinner which were spot on! Breakfast was delicious with homemade granola and baked fritata. Breakfast is served between 8.30 - 9.30 which might be a bit restricitive if wanting to head off up the mountain early however perhaps something could be arranged. The price was higher than we would normally pay though. Air con was noisy. Otherwise, the rooms have a charming Gone With the Wind theme and it was very pleasant.

Today was Marie's birthday and she was still at the kitchen serving breakfast. Happy birthday. Family run b&b with great atmosphere. 24 Hour swimming pool and hot tub was an unexpected bonus and choice for breakfast homemade with a gourmet aubergine omlette option. No tv in room ( bonus) but there was use of wifi . Never seen humming birds before. Enjoyed myself.

but then isn't everything. One of the great things about Plantation is that the owners know that they serve best when they are rested themselves and so they do not wear themselves out chasing the guests around. Our keys were waiting for us with some simple instructions. The room was quiet comfortable and quiet, the Tub was deep and the water was hot! I particularly loved walking in the grounds, bot in the early morning and at twilight.

Room Tip: ask upon reserving about which rooms are upstairs, if this is a consideration for you.
