“A Trip Back in Time!”
Reviewed April 7, 2011

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.

We highly recommend this beautiful retreat ! Thats what our stay felt like -
a relaxing retreat from the noisy bustling world back into the splendor of the antebellum past. The home and grounds are absolutely gorgeous and the owners/inkeepers couldn't be more gracious. Will definately treat ourselves for a return visit hopefully soon and recommend you do the same

This was a first date visit. Very lovely home, gorgeous grounds, beautiful trails and the clear water streams with the waterfall, very peaceful. Willa and Bill are wonderful people who take great pleasure in their home and property. It's a great place for hiking and relaxing by the pool. First visit there was memorable when sitting out by the pool late one night, they locked the doors thinking we were in. Luckily one of the cars was unlocked and we had to keep blowing the horn to get them to let us in....everyone had a good laugh. If you want a romantic getaway this is the place. Plenty of places to have a midnight picnic and watch the stars under clear skies. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quite relaxing weekend. Haven't been in a couple of years but hopefully one day will make it back to visit.

After searching for months to find the perfect place to get married, we decided on Desert Plantation. The plantation and the grounds are so beautiful with all the trees and open spaces, not to mention the tranquility of it all. Willia is an excellent host and was a pleasure to work with. She assisted us in throughout the planning process and recommended several other great companies that made our wedding and reception a success (catering, tent, music, florist, cakes, hair stylist, etc.). I think I was most impressed by the comfortable feeling of the home – from the old house charm to the most comfortable beds – I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better.
All of my family and friends were very impressed with the plantation and shocked that they have never seen it before. My new husband and I are looking forward to spending another weekend out there in the near future to sit back, relax by the pool, and enjoy our time at the plantation once again.
