Nottoway Plantation is about an hour and a half drive from New Orleans. It is worth the drive. Nottoway is an exceptional nineteenth-century sugar plantation home. It is arguably the most impressive of the plantations along the lower Mississippi. The guides are well versed in the history of the property and go an excellent job in sharing the story of... More

Toured the home, museum, gift shop and grounds. This is a beautifully restored antebellum plantation along the banks of the Mississippi. The tour was informative and lasted about 30 min. This plantation would be a wonderful location for a wedding and they are geared up for it. The lodging options and restaurant also looked wonderful.

The house is beautiful and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. We didn't feel rushed and learned about the original owners and the surrounding area.

Nottoway Plantation in White Castle Louisiana is a georgeous, majestic home on the Mississippi River. The grounds are beautiful with fountains and decade old oaks that have moss hanging from their branches. Our tour guide, Brock, was very informative and was able to answer our questions.This was my third trip to view this historical site. If you go, ask for... More

Nottoway is a beautiful home but a lot of the emphasis is placed on the resort which you can rent a room or cabin and stay there. It was really like touring an old hotel or something in a lot of ways. They did have some very beautiful and interesting antiques and the grounds were pretty but the most beautiful... More

This plantation is a nice place to visit, however,Houmas House is much more beautiful and the gardens at Houmas House are extraordinary. The tour was also better at Houmas House.

This is a wonderful unbelievable plantation. The mansion is incredible. The tour was great and very informative. You can take photos but no flash. It takes you back to what life was years and years ago. We had dinner at the Mansion restaurant which I have reviewed separately and also stayed at one of the cottages which I've reviewed separately.... More

The weather was terrible. Cold & dreary, so we couldn't enjoy touring the grounds. The tour of the inside was nice. I love that you are able to take your own photos of the inside of the house. A lot of places do not allow that. Our tour guide was very friendly & knowledgeable for only having been working there... More

We were staying at a RV campground in Convent and this place was recommended. We took the last tour of the day thrust the house. The house is beautiful. I especially liked the white ballroom. The tour guide was informative and knowlegable. We ate dinner at the Mansion Restaurant and it was a beautiful setting. Very elegant and the prices... More
