Front at the Myrtles
The Myrtles Plantation

The saga of the Antebellum South and a lifestyle that will be forgotten lives on at The Myrtles Plantation, a 205-year-old home that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A first glimpse of the home with its magnificent double dormers and lacy grillwork of the 125-foot-long front veranda envelops one with a complete sense of peace and tranquility.

The history of the South will always provide us with tales of romance and mystery. The drama of The Myrtles Plantation began in 1796 when General David Bradford, also known as "Whiskey Dave" of the Whiskey Rebellion, fled George Washington's Army to avoid arrest and imprisonment. Bradford arrived at Bayou Sara, then a Spanish Colony, and obtained a land grant of 650 acres to begin a new life. Centuries later the drama continues to unfold.

French Room at the Myrtles

The Myrtles Plantation invites you to step into the past for a visit of antebellum splendor. Historical Tours are offered daily from 9am to 5pm and every Friday and Saturday evening the house sparkles with crystal chandeliers as enchanting stories of mystery and intrigue are recounted. Our Oxbow Carriage House Restaurant offers French Louisiana Cuisine for a casual lunch or a candlelight dinner on Tuesday thru Saturday and a savory Sunday Brunch.

The foyer has a 350-pound Baccarat crystal chandelier and a grand hand-painted stained glass entrance, which was etched and patterned after the French cross to ward off evil. The home exhibits some of the finest open pierced freizework crown molding and examples of faux-bois in existence today.


Six of the Bed and Breakfast rooms are located in the home. Four are adjacent to the courtyard and one restored slave quarter is tucked away under a moss-draped live oak tree. All Bed and Breakfast guests enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast and historical tour of the home.

Come to discover why the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and CBS Morning News called The Myrtles Plantation "One of America's Most Haunted Homes".
