Message from the Proprietor

To be exceptional one
must be the exception. 
Everhope Plantation
is exceptional!

In 1852, Architect
David Rinehart Anthony,
designed Everhope to be
Big, Bold & Beautiful.

The Greek Revival Architecture draws Hollywood requests & visitors from 8 countries in 2015 !   

It is “Back to the Future” as we hunger for the farm to table movement, value hand crafted customization over cookie cutter, appreciate scenic beauty with indigenous horticulture, value preservation & architectural diversity & see “off the grid” as KOOL, :> again!  Guests from around the world, & Airbnb.com Superhost Status illustrate Everhope’s appeal!  Made possible by preserving the antebellum home while strengthening its foothold for the future via a couple thousand square foot “out back” addition incorporating bathrooms, laundry rooms & a
state of the art kitchen. 
I’ve read of one other
antebellum home
preserved in this
manner & it is
executive Bob Doyle’s
in Tennessee.

Suzanne Callaway
(“Silent in the Night”)
eloquently states “You’ve got to love old houses & want to live in them.  You can’t be intimidated by them, but must become a part of them, just as they become a part of you.”  Everhope is far more than I need or deserve & therefore I open her doors with 100% of revenue  reinvested to maintain this
incredible plantation, a piece of American History.  It is my responsibility & intent to maintain these grounds to the level of detail they deserve (see “Love” page).

Everhope is committed to growing with the community it operates in & has hosted pro-bono events for The University of Alabama Business School, Language Dept., Nursing School, the Japan America Society, Greene County & Wounded Warriors.  Follow our fun on Facebook too!

I invite you to be exceptional, like Everhope, and
come & enjoy the Plantation Life! 

All The Best, Barden
