We went to the Myrtle's plantation before we came to Rosedown and I must say it is the better of the two. The Rosedown tour guide was excellent and knowledgable. You can also explore every room and all of the grounds in great detail.

We toured this historic site in early January so we didn't get a chance to appreciate the 28 acre gardens. We do plan another trip in the spring time once everything is in bloom - can't wait!

We made it to the 4 pm last tour of day. Nice walk from parking area through beautiful grounds loads of camellias in bloom and stately oaks with moss. Would love to return again in spring when azaleas in bloom. Admission is modest. Greeted at front door by guide where he showed us both floors of this lovely restored home.... More

We spent a few hours there over the weekend. Every detail is accounted for in the house/grounds. The gardens seemed to go on forever!!

We had to go to the visitor's house after parking to pay for entrance fees. The visitor's house gave us map of the place, and showed us how to get to the mansion (required a bit walk, but they had carts commuting people who were handicapped). We were required to follow tour guide through our entire visit inside mansion. Tour... More

We wanted to see some of plantations while we were in St. Francisville. We stopped here first. We arrived right when it opened and the first tour was the next hour (not right when they open). We walked around the grounds and did the self guided tour until the guided tour began. Just learning how the plantation ran back in... More

We visited the plantation as a family and had a wonderful time. It's been beautifully restored Inside as well as the gardens. Our guide Sasha was lovely and clearly LOVES history! She made it come alive for us!

Take a step back into time as you explore the winding gardens of Rosedown Plantation. The tour will give you insight into the owners, the history, and the restoration of the plantation. Hauntingly beautiful gardens make for a great photo op with the family!

The Rosedown Plantation house has been authentically restored to its a antebellum splendor. Although to had no plumbing, electricity or central heating, it must have been comfortable, at least for the owners.
