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 the world over!    It is “Back to the Future” as we desire “UNIQUE”, value preservation & architectural diversity, hunger for the farm to table movement, aspire for country beauty & see “off the grid” as KOOL, :> once again!   Lodging guests from 8 countries, in 2015, + Airbnb Superhost status illustrate Everhope’s appeal !

This is made possible by preserving the antebellum home while having strengthened its foothold for the future via a couple thousand sq. ft. “out back” addition incorporating bathrooms, & a state of the art kitchen.  I’ve read of one other antebellum home preserved in this manner & it is entertainment executive Bob Doyle’s in Tennessee, which was featured in Garden & Gun.

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 and therefore I open her doors!  100% of revenue is reinvested into maintaining 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 the “Love” page).

Everhope is committed to growing with the community it operates in and has hosted pro-bono events for The Univ. of Alabama Business School, Language Dept., Nursing School, the Japan America Society & Greene County.  It will host Wounded Warriors this winter.

I invite you to be exceptional, like Everhope, & come and enjoy the Plantation Life!  Won’t you follow us on Facebook too?!

All The Best,
