    1. Sad it’s closed. Had a wonderful visit, staff was fabulous, b&b spotless, combined with a middle of the night thunder and lightening storm a haunting I will never forget!

    2. The bridge by this plantation is incredible. You can hear voices, marching boots and on one occasion we got run off by a strong sulphur smell. As soon as we moved from bridge, the smell was gone. Warning, the plantation has new owners and they will call the police. 🙂

    3. We came at night to see if we could see ghost. We were parked on the bridge. Her car would not start. She tryed and tryed but it wouldn’t start. I told her to push the truck off the bridge. So she did. Then the truck started right up.

    4. I worked as a tour guide here in the late 90s. We would often experience unexplainable events. Some that stick out in my mind are the sounds of footsteps from an upstairs bedroom, a broken music box playing on its own, and an electrical issue with a tv station’s camera when they had come to do a Halloween segment at the house. I loved working here and am very sad that it is no longer open to the public.

    5. Spent the night here with my wife and our two teenage boys. Slept downstairs in a nice room with the portrait of the previous owner hanging on the wall facing the bed. One of those paintings where the eyes would follow you around the room. Needless to say no one slept any that night and the boys were in our bed by dawn!

      • my great aunt used to work there and my mom had two kids at the time my oldest sister and my brother and she was pregnant for me and they slept in this house a lot and my sister said she remembers seeing ghosts

    6. My husband proposed to me on an beautiful evening in October in the Fall of 2002 by the pool at Cretien Point Plantation. Just as he proposed, the automatic pool cleaner malfunctioned and squirted us both with water. We shared this funny story with the other guests and the Keeper the next morning and were informed that we had probably been visited by the ghost that haunts the plantation. Not sure if we were, but the timing was hilarious and makes a great story to tell our kids!

    7. I used to be a Nanny for the previous owner and every single time we were there, something ghostly happened! I played the widow on several tours and scared the tourists at night while they were leaving in the bus, you could hear people screaming from very far away inside of the house 😉
      Love that house. I met my husband there and we got married there. We went back with our kids many years later to find out that the house is no longer open to the public. Wish I could bring my kids there. Such a lovely place!

    8. I’m usually a person to not believe in this stuff. But we went with our boys in the Boy Scouts, and when we were going down the stairs, the group stopped to listen to one of the guides. It felt like someone was behind me and I thought it was the other tour guide. No one was behind me, and I told my husband what happened and I laughed. At that point, it then felt like someone leaned hard against my back. I started pushing my husband to go down the stairs bc I wanted to get out of the house. I didn’t like that feeling
