If you grew up in the South, it's possible that you have seen Steel Magnolias at least once in your life. The movie encompasses the beauty of the South and the girls were the ultimate first #girlboss gang there was. Little do some know, this classic was actually filmed in our great state of Louisiana. You can stay at the Steel Magnolia house located in Natchitoches, Lousiana.
Having seen the 1989 film Steel Magnolias, you probably know that the centerpiece of the entire movie is right in Louisiana. The house was the place where Shelby and Jackson were sent off, and you can see it throughout the movie as well.
It has since been turned into a bed & breakfast and is the perfect place to stay if you're in the area. The famous Natchitoches Christmas festival is here in Natchitoches as well so this would be a great place to stay.
The Steel Magnolia house was turned into a bed and breakfast in 2014, but the actual house has been there since 1841. This spot is literally where all your favorite classic stars stepped. The owner, Dan Dyess, says it has not really changed much since the movie.
It's a 5,900-square-foot home, so it's pretty large. It has the classic wrap-around porch with rocking chairs and huge oak trees all around the property.
We highly suggest staying here at least once to really get true Southern hospitality. There are five rooms available to rent, including Shelby's room. Her room still has the pink striped wallpaper that is seen in the movie.
Prices run around $200 a night to stay here, but you'll get an experience you'll never forget. Every morning you'll be woken up with the smell of a homecooked breakfast, which is what we all would love to be woken up with every day.
The house gets decked out in Christmas decor during the holiday season, so it really is the best time to go. The rooms book up fast, so you need to get your spot ASAP.
