Fodor's Review

If you don't mind a deep legacy of hauntings, you'll enjoy these character-filled guest rooms on the second floor of the plantation house and a couple of outlying buildings, all filled with antiques and most with four-poster beds. A tour of the house, just a few miles beyond the center of St. Francisville, is included in your stay. In nice weather many guests opt to have breakfast at the outdoor tables behind the house. The fine Carriage House Restaurant, which serves excellent lunches and dinners, is another good reason to stay here.
