“Charming, Magnificent, Exquisite”

Butler Greenwood Plantation
Reviewed 14 February 2014

While passing through Saint Francisville, we decided to stop at this gorgeous plantation. The grounds are just beautiful gardens and trees, especially along with the wisteria. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The splendor of this grand place is up there with the Myrtles. It is also a B&B, that requires one to call ahead for reservations. The oak tree canopies that go from the from drive and to the house are purely majestic and magnificent. The inside tour lasts about fifteen minutes and entirely on the first floor. And it is still a privately own home. This place is worth stop and the time.

Butler Greenwood Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana, has been in the hands of the Butler family since it was built in 1810. So it was extremely fascinating that we learned that our tour guide was Ann Butler, an author and historian with family genes. Not surprisingly, Ms. Butler has an extensive and thorough knowledge of Butler Greenwood's history. Located on highway 61, it is easily accessible. The 44 acres of grounds contains the plantation house, a gazebo and a rear brick kitchen. The gardens flanking the house remain one of the few extant examples of antebellum garden design in West Feliciana Parish. As a woman, Ms. Butler is particularly intrigued by the history of the plantation, which provides an excellent illustration of how southern women managed great southern plantations.

We waited on the porch and were greeted quickly and warmly by Mrs. Butler (we discovered later who she was) and were mesmerized by her on sight. She has the most genuine hospitality in her tine and manner, an impeccable southern Belle. She was gracious and thorough during the tour, pointing out interesting details throughout the house and giving us an appreciation of this early plantation. She invited is to walk the extensive grounds. We decided we will certainly stay on her cabins in our next trip through SF. Overall my favorite tour in SF.

Beautiful plantation with amazing history. Huge porch with pillars that seem to reach the sky that lead into a warm inviting museum styled home of one of the wealthiest plantation families of the south. It was used in the movie "North and South". The tour guide sat and spoke with us at length as not many visitors that day and made us very comfortable. The lawn is scattered with huge lush trees that give the place an inviting feel. They have weddings at this location and there is a separate area where guests can stay overnight that looks out onto the plantation and grounds. Very lovely, would recommend and visit again.
