Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this venue has been in the homeowner's family since 1900 and boasts 90 acres filled with 2 ponds, creeks, a half-mile lane, and a large pool with a BBQ pit, fan, and furnished patio. The 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom interior sleeps up to 12 and is furnished with period antiques for a one-of-a-kind destination! THE PROPERTY Master Bedroom (Desert Suite): Queen Bed | Master Bedroom 2 (Catherine Suite): Queen Bed | Master Bedroom 3 (Isabelle Suite): 2 Queen Beds | Master Bedroom 4 (Semple Suite): Queen Bed, 2 Twin Beds A lovely veranda in the front of the estate welcomes you to 'Desert Plantation' and sets the environment for your southern getaway to this historic home. The 90-acre venue is filled with 2225-year-old oak trees, beautiful willow trees, ponds, creeks, a walking path, and a pristine pool area that all invite you to spend countless hours enjoying the Mississippi sun. Inside, you'll find 4 master suites including 1 with a built-in hot tub and the remaining 3 with classic clawfoot tubs. The home provides ideal sleeping arrangements for the whole family between with four-post beds in each bedroom and plenty of closet and dresser space for your vacation wardrobe. Each bedroom also includes flat-screen Smart TVs, as does the main family room where you can spend the majority of your vacation downtime. For some privacy, head into the library and turn the pages of a historical book, or choose instead to entertain the whole group with favorite melodies on the living room piano. The fully equipped kitchen provides everything you'll need for home-cooking adventures, including modern appliances, a large pantry, ample counter space, and a center island. Share your morning breakfast at the kitchen nook table and set the formal dining room for family feasts. Once you've had your fill, walk along the half-mile trail or take out the provided golf cart to tour the property's lush landscape. Finish evenings with barbecues around the pool until the sun sets over the horizon. This venue is also great for your next large family gathering, reunion, or wedding ceremony! THE LOCATION Even if you're not traveling to 'Desert Plantation' for your next large event, this secluded home is perfect for families and still offers easy access to some interesting attractions. If you're traveling in October or the 3rd weekend in April, head 10 minutes to the Angola Roadeo or visit the Angola Museum during any season. Clarks Creek, or the Tunica Hills Falls, is just 4 miles from the Desert Gate if you're seeking further outdoor adventures. Drive to St. Francisville to explore the local restaurants, boutiques, and other shops, or simply head into Woodville to peruse the town's antique stores. The Mississippi River is just minutes away, and you can follow the water about 50 minutes to reach Baton Rouge - the capital city of Louisiana. This eclectic city hosts several antebellum-period landmarks and great venues for dining, live entertainment, and more!
