Deep South Plantation

There is something about the beautiful antebellum mansions of the Deep South that evokes images of Scarlet O’Hara style hooped skirts and sipping mint julips while rocking on a front porch swing. The iconic plantations dotted throughout the Deep South are a visual reminder of the history of the region. Step back to a bygone era with a visit to a unique antebellum home or enjoy an immersive taste of the Old South with an overnight stay.
