We came for the history and ghost tour, we did not stay at the plantation but another plantation down the road! There were approximately 30 people on our tour. We were entertained by our period dressed tour guide. We didn't get any "ghost" photos but enjoyed the history of the house and the period items available for view.

Have been planning this trip since we saw it featured on "Ghost Hunters". We enjoyed having lunch at the Carriage house and then took the historic tour and it was only three of us. The lady guide didn't seem too excited to give us the tour, she never said where pictures were allowed and then gave me a stern warning... More

I visited this with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed it. The tour doesn't last long but is very informative and our guide Miss Esther was a wonderful lady who brought life to the tour. It is all about the house and spirits who reside there, but our guide was more then happy to answer questions about the plantation and... More

I'm not a real haunted place buff but my wife is so we stopped in. It was really well worth the fee. I don't want to ruin the experience but the story of Chloe and the family, the mirror and the photograph are really spooky. The tour guide was an adorable Southern Belle who was really good. The tour doesn't... More

I'm going to be honest, I visited for the first time and it's a place you can go to once and be done with it. The place is really nice and we'll kept for an old plantation. Enjoyed the old stories on the tour however I don't believe in the ghost stuff.

The grounds and home quiet beautiful. There is an onsite restaurant and gift shop. If you don't have time to stay at the plantation, I would recommend taking the tour, very informative, not only on the history, but on the "dearly departed" as well. We were able to stay in the house in the Judge Woodruff room, which I highly... More

This place is absolutely beautiful. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The gift shop is a must. Restaurant on site is delicious. We had a great time. We didn't see any Ghost however we felt them and heard them. When I got home and downloaded them on my computer I had great pics of Ghosts. Definitely a place I... More

My wife and I have always wanted to take a tour of The Myrtles Plantation. We enjoyed the history, the grounds and the haunting stories but our tour guide was okay. I would love to do a nighttime tour but my wife said "NO WAY". A mst do if in Baton Rouge area.

I went into the experience with some preconceived ideas, and was a little disappointed. The plantation house was much smaller than expected, and there was no tour of the upstairs at all. The tour guide did a good job telling the story of the residents and hauntings, but probably wouldn't do it again.
