Butler Greenwood Plantation has been featured on Chef John Folse's fabulous Louisiana cooking show on public television, on Vincent Shortt's B&B cruises on the Mississippi riverboats of the Delta Queen Steamship line, in magazines like Southern Living, Southern Accents, Colonial Homes, Travel and Leisure, and in national and regional guidebooks, including Louisiana Dayrides and Mary Fonseca's wonderful Weekend Getaways in Louisiana. The June 2000 issue of Country Roads magazine named Butler Greenwood one of the "best B&Bs in southern Louisiana and Mississippi". Included in the book America's Most Charming Towns & Villages, Butler Greenwood Plantation was also the only B&B mentioned when Fodor's first annual Choice Destination Program named Louisiana's Plantation Country one of its Top Ten overlooked and underrated winter destinations in the world.
