From the time we got there until the time we left was a great experience. We took the mystery tour with Piper as our guide. She was phenomenal. We stayed in the Willow cabin. It was very nice. The nighttime manager was Lisa. She took time to answer any and all of our questions. She made us feel very welcome and made it feel like a home away from home. We will definitely be back.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Myrtles Plantation. We are delighted to hear that your visit with us was unforgettable. Piper will be elated that you enjoyed her tour. She does have a wonderful way to make the history of the plantation come to life. Our staff here at The Myrtles Plantation are just as enthusiastic about the lure of the house as much as our guest. We love to share stories and hear all about our overnight visitors experenices. We look forward to seeing you again . Thank you.

We had booked a room in the main mansion and were subsequently advised that due to rain damage we could be relocated to one of their cottages in the grounds, which we agreed to.The advertised price for the cottages is $295 per night without tax, our original room was cheaper than this but we didn't have to pay the extra. We surmised that staying in a modern cottage there would be some level of kitchen facilities.
On arrival we discovered that there was:

No televison
No Microwave
No fridge
No cutlery
No tea or coffee making facilities or indeed bottled water
No Wifi (There was a problem with the phone lines)

The ladies that checked us in were lovely and friendly and we did get a tea & coffee in the gift shop/breakfast room.
We moved our own bags from the car with a trolley, there was no one to help.
The cottages were lovely and clean with a spacious lounge area, bedroom with 2 queen beds, and bathroom with shower. There was plenty of room to provide facilities but they cop out by saying modern facilities will spoil the atmosphere,In the main house perhaps but not in the modern cottages.
The porch had rocking chairs and overlooked the pond.
There is an on site restaurant run independently.

We should have researched this better and if we had we would not have stayed here. Luckily we only had 1 night and moved on to another plantation that did have full facilities in their cottages which was half the price.

Room tip: Go elsewhere

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am very disappointed that you were not pleased with your accomodations here at the Myrtles. We strive for excellence here at the
Myrtles, I'm very sorry that the wifi was not working during your stay and that you were moved from your original room. Unfortunately your stay was right after the historic flood we recently encountered here in our area and the wifi and phone lines were damaged. In the past our guest have always enjoyed and appreciated our rooms not having televisions and phones and find it to be a peaceful escape back to the older days. We appreciate your suggestion and we will look into the possibility adding these amenities to our more modern accommodations. We hope that you give us a chance in the future to exceed your expectations.

Our trip to the Myrtles was great in every way. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was great. The "Coco House" where we stayed was a very clean 2 bedroom. Beds were comfortable, I slept like a baby. The only glitch was the room was advertised as 2 queen & 2 twin beds. It actually had 3 queen beds. As a bonus, I got photos of energy sources, & ghost looking out a window. 3 of us saw shadow figures and one had a screw thrown past her head. It was an awesome adventure. Would recommend to anyone.

Room tip: Coco House was advertised as 2 queen & 2 twin beds. Actually had 3 queen beds.

ONG this plantation is amazing! Gorgeous, beautiful we were so happy with our rooms ! It's a long way from Australia to st francisville but it was so worth it! You've heard it's haunted ! Well I'm s sceptic but I experienced something in the room, my son did too later in the night. My son in law was in the Bradford suite and he experienced the bed moving and later, my daughter had all the sheets tighten across her legs when in bed alone. This is s must see in Louisiana, great service awesome breakfasts love love love this place

I don't believe in ghosts. I've visited several hotels and houses that claimed to be haunted, including the Stanley Hotel in Colorado and the Cashtown Inn in Pennsylvania. Sorry, Casper, I wasn't aware of any out-of-this-world happenings. Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana, located just off U.S. Highway 61, also has a reputation for being haunted. Again, I discovered no evidence. However, Myrtles is an historic antebellum house in a very historic town that must be included on your must-see list. Built in 1797 by General David Bradford, who was forced to flee from George Washington's army in 1794 because of his leadership role in the Whisky Rebellion, it is a broad, low, rambling frame mansion with a clapboard interior that was constructed in two halves. The first half, built in 1796, forms the western six bays of the main facade. In the mid-19th century, the house received a southward extension that almost doubled its size. The unusually long gallery is supported by an exceptional cast-iron railing of elaborate grape-cluster design. However, the most important feature of Myrtles is the interior detailing. Most of the ground floor rooms have fine marble, arched mantles in the Rococo Revival style, with central console keystones or cartouches. Most of the rooms have plaster-ceiling medallions, no two alike. All of the flooring and most of the windows in the house are original. Myrtles is an outstanding example of the expanded raised cottage form that characterized many Louisiana plantation houses in the mid-19th century. But is it haunted? Local folklore persists that it was the scene of a Reconstruction-era axe murder and other deaths over the years. You'll hear about Chloe, a young slave girl. And you can schedule a candlelight mystery tour. Some bed-and-breakfasters insist the stories are true. Frankly, I preferred a tour of the house, which has been restored to its 1850s opulence, complete with the fine French furnishings and chandeliers. And the on-site restaurant offers fine southern cooking and some Cajun delights for lunch.

Room tip: Rooms on the north side are said to be more haunted than those on the south, if you believe in those sort of things.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a phenomenal review of The Myrtles Plantation. We take great pride in relaying the history of the plantation to our guest and creating the perfect ambiance of the house. It's so satisfying to hear that our guest appreciate just how special the plantation is. Aside from the folklore that surrounds our 200+ year old grounds of sweeping live oaks and crepe myrtles, the history of The Myrtles Plantation stands for itself and in that makes the plantation such an amazing place. Thank you again for your wonderful review and we hope to see you again soon.
