  • This tour is awesome. We arrived at night and immediately felt the presence of those who had lived on the plantation for the past 200 years. The tour was led by a charming and gracious hostess, Sierra...  more »
  • We missed the last Day time tour by a couple minutes. Website did not show that they ended at 4:30pm. We took the 6pm tour instead. Nothing but ghost stories, not your typical Plantation tour. It was ...  more »
  • I'd like more history of the place, no mention of where the slave quarters were. It seemed all they talked about were the "ghosts". Its small, very small and you cannot go upstairs to see the bedrooms...  more »

  • Charming, stayed on Halloween and took the tour. This place is very interesting. This was our second trip there and the first trip was awesome as well. The B&B is def worth staying at for coming in to contact with spirits. Total skeptic when we first went but no longer.
  • The Myrtles Plantation is one of the best vacations I have ever had, planned on staying for 2 nights and stayed 3. My best friend and I stayed at The Coco House and the beds were so comfortable and the linens were so white and smelled delightful. The country breakfast was great and the staff did everything they could to make you comfortable as if you were family. Shout out to Rennie Sawyer our Hostess and Ms Hester who was our Historian. I will go back again and yes it is haunted.
  • Beautiful historical property. Given, my Husband and I came at my personal request for two reasons: 1. RICH in history and 2. It is reportedly haunted. Upon our arrival, driving up to the house was as relaxing as it gets. The entire property is just jaw dropping to me. Ok so onto the experience....we checked in at the General Store and were greeted warmly. We were taken to our room, which was the Gen. David Bradford suite, we were told the story behind him and we settled ourselves in. Now you must prepare if you go, this house is OLD and has the aroma of a really old house. There is a tour of the house included with your stay, so when the bell rang, we went on the tour. There are a few ladies who do the tours and I would say they are all well versed in their knowledge of the house...which kept the tour interesting. I did snap a pic of what seemed to be orbs to me, but haven’t uploaded it yet. We went to eat after the tour at Saint Francis Table....delicious! Awaiting nightfall back at the house, we met with a few of the other guests. Everyone is there for the same thing, so it’s easy to strike up conversations. Nothing happened during the night, but I had a wonderful time, my Husband was very tolerant and if you have read any of the books and this house peaked your interest, I do hope you get the opportunity to visit. If anything....it’s a relaxing stay as there’s not much to do....except sit back, relax and soak up beauty!
  • I have stayed here twice now, i enjoyed the tour now, you can take pictures now and the young lady that does the tours is much friendlier than the older woman we had on our first time staying. My wife and I spent the night on 08-10-2017, we didn't really enjoy it due to the other guests. There were 2 couples who pretty much ruined the whole experience, we were the only people from Texas and Hispanic which shouldn't be a problem however when we first arrived i noticed they kept staring at us a lot, throughout the entire stay. They have tours throughout the entire day and in the evening you have the entire house/grounds to yourself. The 2 couples and their friends took up the courtyard and were drinking alcohol, they were pretty loud and rowdy, especially the fat guy. My wife and I were sitting on a corner of the courtyard trying to enjoy our time there, they started talking about Trump and "build the wall", which was not necessary and stupid. One of the women in their group even came with her cell phone flashlight and walked towards us to make sure "she wasn't seeing a ghost", she comes up to us and says "oh i thought i was seeing ghosts, haha". Those people had no manners. They ended up sleeping around 2am, it was quiet after that. On our most recent stay which was 12-16-2017 our stay was much more pleasant, we had the suite and the guests that stayed there this time were much nicer and considerate, the tour was great and it was relatively quiet. One thing that i might add is that they need security at night. On both nights there were people who drove into the property, they walked around and took picture of the house. They should also have a an alcohol policy or something especially with people who can't control how much they drink, i.e. the couples from my first visit.
  • Went with the wife and almost decided to stay in one of their rooms but we decided to stick with the plan we already had. We did get to see the rooms in the old house and it would have been an adventure. I like how they keep the rooms dated back with the exception to a couple of rooms. There is a couple of rooms that they put a modern bathroom in. Staff is extremely friendly and is waiting on any questions you might have.
