Haunted Louisiana: Loyd Hall Plantation

Loyd Hall is a bed and breakfast located in Cheneyville, LA. I’ve passed through this area many times when my hubby and I lived near there in the early months of our marriage, but I never even knew Loyd Hall was there, much less haunted. I was always more interested in getting to Lecompte before Lea’s Lunchroom ran out of my favorite, chocolate pie.

My introduction to Loyd Hall was when I attended a media tour of the northern part of Louisiana. Loyd Hall was the last stop on the tour. The group was staying the night, but some of us have multiple jobs and had to be at work the next morning. My husband and daughter joined up with the group to give me a ride back home. After what I saw, this place is definitely interesting, if not haunted. It sure did scare the you-know-what out of my daughter, who refused to explore the upper levels with me.

A warning not to wander upstairs at Loyd Hall

Loyd Hall is a really beautiful bed and breakfast, and judging by the TripAdvisor reviews, visitors from all over the world agree. Since I didn’t overnight, I can’t really give it a review, just a recap of my experience there. It is set smack-dab in the middle of Louisiana pastureland. There is the main home, which has two upstairs suites (that are pretty swanky) and various outbuildings used for maintenance, guest cottages, and events. Of course, I went wandering off alone, and came upon a scene right out of a horror movie.

This antebellum home has plenty of charm and atmosphere, but it also carried a good bit of history. One such story is that of a Union Soldier who was hiding out in the attic. He tried to attack a mistress of the house, and was duly shot on site. Strangely enough, at the same spot where he was shot, a few years later, a young lady committed suicide by jumping out of the window, right where the soldier had previously passed.

Of course, there are other ghostly occupants, including an old slave called Nanny who gets ticked off when someone fools with her kitchen. Nanny didn’t bother me when I went looking for a few chilled bottles of wine in her domain. After she met my daughter, I’m pretty sure she felt I deserved a sip or two of that Chardonnay.

Many others have had their own unexplained experiences at Loyd Hall, but stories are stories and seeing is believing. That’s why I took a picture in the attic of the spot where so many people have passed. Notice that stain? The lady who found me upstairs and chatted with me said that they’ve tried scrubbing, sanding, and refinishing that area, but the blood stain always comes back.

    I have always been interested in places with stories behind them and Lloyd Hall really got me intrigued! I’d be sure to pass this along to my readers. Thanks for the post!

    Wow – Louisiana seems filled with these ghostly locales. The unremovable blood stain is strangely spooky and must feel a little weird to be standing in such a room.

    I am descended from people who were slaves here. I am so anxious to visit this place, if only to stand on the same ground as my ancestors. Aside from that, I’ve been interested in any Paranormal happenings my whole life!!!

    I am writing a book about “spirits” based on eye-witnesses who have actually seen a spirit…one woman I interviewed worked the midnight shift in a nursing home in Ohio and on many occasions a male “spirit” was seen sitting at the foot of a bed of a patient who passed that night. And in all cases, those who passed and had this spirit at the foot of their bed were alone in their lives…no families. Anyone who would like for me to interview them please contact me at marv@mindoversports.com — also, I’m only interested in eye-witness accounts that have never before been published. Thank you.

    l stayed at Loyd Hall on Monday night ( we’ve stayed there about 6 times) but this time we stayed in a suite in the main house. These rooms were formerly the childrens’ room and the room adjoining it was the nanny’s room. Well, l was tapped on the shoulder very early Tuesday morning, and clearly heard a child say “Where’s my crinoline”. l just lay ther

    My mother use to play in Loyd Hall when she was a kid, her family, the Perry’s lived just up the road from the place. She was friends with the little Fitzgerald girl that lived there then and she has always told us the story of the blood stains on the floor upstairs and on the stairs! It’s a beautiful place to see and I have to go by every time I’m in Louisiana!

  8. Osbern Sterling says

    I’m actually writing because I have a question. Does anyone know or know where I can find out the names of the slaves that were here? My ancestors may have been slaves here.

    When I was a child my father always said that our family, the Loyd family, was actually related to the wealthy Lloyds of London, England. According to dad, our branch of the family that immigrated to the U.S., were of a rough character and the English Lloyds promised financial assist if we would drop an “L”and basically separate ourselves from them. I thought it was just a fish tale until I read somewhere about Loyd Hall Plantation, and read a very similar story. Is there any actuality to the Loyd/Lloyd tale? Could there actually be a familial relationship?

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
