Great time

Rosedown is a great example of the "Golden Age" of plantation homes. If you want not only an informational tour, but beautiful scenery, you have come to the right place.

Fantastic tour!! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We roamed around grounds and we're fascinated with all the things there. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that gets a chance. Nice gift shop and museum. Employees there were very knowledgeable too.

The grounds are very pretty and shaded so even in 95 degree heat of summer it was manageable. The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Most of the furnishings are original to the house so it's extremely authentic. Definitely one not to miss.

Beautiful house and loved the gardens. Good way to spend a little time. I recommend going to this plantation and also The Myrtles because they're so close together. Rosedown is a historic site owned by the state.

Having grown up in South Louisiana, I've been to almost all plantations numerous time. I have to say, this week's visit set Rosedown on par with Oak Alley. Maybe even better than Oak Alley. The price of the tour was in line with others. The grounds were nice but the tour was outstanding. Our guide, Sasha was informative, pleasant and... More

The house and grounds are fantastic.it is a shame that the state would allow this young lady tour guide to give out such misinformation. Her knowledge of historical fact is vertially non-exestant and knows even less about the family and material culture available at such an important property. We all have a chance to learn from such a signefficiant property... More

We chose Rosedown over Oak Alley and were very glad we did. The oak alley here is just as impressive. The grounds show some signs of neglect but the outlines of the gardens are still easy to see. The house tour was a traditional tour explaining about the house and furnishings. Most things are original since the house stayed in... More

We only wished we had more time! Make sure to set aside 2-3 hours. We only had one hour. Enough for the tour, but only a few minutes to walk around the beautiful and extensive gardens. I chose Rosedown, as it was on the way between Natchez and New Orleans and is a State historic site, so the entrance fee... More

We had a nice visit at Rosedown. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and seemed to have a real interest in the history of the plantation. The tour itself was about 40 mins. We spent more time exploring the gorgeous gardens on our own. There are plenty of benches throughout the gardens to sit and enjoy the scenery.
