My cousin and I made last minute reservations for a Friday afternoon tour. When we arrived we discovered that it was only going to be us- Lucky. It made the experience feel extra special. We had the most charming tour guide, I think her name was Diane (I missed her introduction whilst replacing my camera battery). She was incredibly friendly... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time. Far and away the best of the plantation homes we visited while in Louisiana. Deb our guide was very funny, kept us laughing the whole tour. Her knowledge of the history of the house was second to none. The house itself, along with the gardens were amazing, one can just believe they... More

I've been to so many of the plantations in LA along River Road, but hadn't been to Houmas House. It was so much more than we expected. You enter through the gift shop which is very large and also has a film about the house,area and time period. The cost of the ticket is $24 for mansion and grounds and... More

Houma's House has the most beautiful grounds and landscaping of any anti-bellum home in Louisiana! Each year I return and more wonderful features have been added.

We took the house tour having seen three other plantations earlier that day. Houmos was nice in part due to the lack of crowds found at Laura and Oak Alley. The house is just as grand as any other and the gardens clearly a labor of love. Our guide showed us a photo clearly showing that before development at the... More

This was a real treat. We had lunch which was very good and then did the house tour. It was extremely well done. If you are in the area take some time out a give Houmas House a visit

We love Houmas House, we made our third trip there and learn more each time. The gardens are fabulous. The home brings you back to an era long gone in its grace and beauty. One of the finest plantation tours. My ten year old grandson was intrigued. This tour is a must!

I visit Houmas House often but found new attractions this time. They have of all things, a Civil War era submarine on display and a Japanese Garden! Houmas House is an ever-evolving labor of love.

We always bring our guest to Houmas House. The surrounding ground is amazing. It never fails to impress our guests. The restaurant serves good and Louisiana food.
