From the very beginning, all the staff members made me feel like home. They were incredibly kind and helpful when I had questions about visits around St Francisville and even morning runs! The room (Camelia, part of the Garden Rooms) was absolutely incredible, very modern and clean, and the breakfast is probably one of the best I ever had, I...

I stood in the William Winter room for a night as I enjoy taking ghost tours and visiting "haunted" sites. You receive a free history tour of the site when you book a room. The guides were very knowledgeable and answered all the questions that I had about the history and the hauntings. I did not experience any paranormal phenomenon...

The Myrtles has a wonderful atmosphere of Southern hospitality. From check-in to departure the staff was friendly. We stayed in the Cypress cabin for one night and overall our stay was positive. There were several comforts seemingly overlooked by our hosts. These included a weak wifi signal in our cabin and no in-room amenities like coffee or ice. The cabins...

We stayed at The Myrtles for our anniversary and look forward to many return visits! We stayed in the John Leake room, which had been recently renovated. Everyone was so welcoming from the staff at the gift shop, to the tour guides and even John Moss (the owner himself!). We enjoyed dinner at the Carriage House restaurant before we took...

We spent our honeymoon at The Myrtles and it was wonderful. We had a delicious dinner at the Carriage House, a great tour, and fun just strolling the property. We unfortunately didn't have any ghostly experiences so we will just have to come back and try again!

My husband and I had the opportunity to visit the Myrtles in Feb. 2017. We took the tour only. Beau was our guide and we couldn't have done better.
