We went on the tour with Kameron as our guide. Just missed the 1pm one, so we wandered the property for a while before the 2pm started. The grounds are lovely with the big trees and some pretty landscaping. We walked across to the levee and it has a perfect view of the front of the house. The tour took... More

We arrived too late for the house tour. We wandered the grounds and I bounded up the stairs of the back verandah to peek inside the house. I saw a woman in period dress and knocked on the glass window. She ambled over to open the back door and I talked her into letting my husband and myself on the... More

I took my mom for Mother's Day brunch. Food was wonderful. Our server was not good , others tried to help. Toured the grounds and home. Employees were not very friendly. Rooms and grounds were amazing . Would like to go back and take the guided tour and stay the night.

A must visit! I was astounded by the glory of this plantation home. The structure was built in the 1860s and you'd think it was new again. No expense has been spared in preserving this historical mansion. The tour was the best we have ever been on, mostly due to the guide. The cost was approx $16 per person, but... More

I have visited several plantations in the New Orleans area in the past, and this time I visited Nottoway. I am glad I did because this is one of the best ever. Not only is the mansion beautiful, but the grounds are gorgeous. The restaurant on the lower level of the mansion was terrific. The soups were delicious and so... More

We visited Nottoway and really enjoyed the tour of the house. The grounds are pretty, but there's not much to see unless you go inside. They tended to gloss over the role that the enslaved people played in building and maintaining the plantation, which I found very sad.

Excellent tour. Knowledgeable tour guide gave us an excellent historical and time period view. She was dressed as a Southern Belle and true to the image graciously gave us information about the people that originally built the plantation and an excellent portrayal of the setting and times in the early South. She was able to point out the original parts... More

The site isabsolutely beautiful and the facilities are absolutely perfect for events such as weddings. However the touof the house r is, in my view, a bit overpriced. I would have liked, for such a price, to do a tour outside as well (explanations on how sugar canes used to be grown).

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.
