This was extremely beautiful and interesting place to visit. We wanted to see a real antebellum house and this was really worth visiting. Best part of the visit was our guide. He knew a lot and told many interesting stories about Nottoway and that era of time, when Nottoway was built. It would have been a great place to spend... More

I took my three daughters there for a get away and rented two cottages. I requested Queen beds in each room, which was verified along with a late check out. I was very disappointed when we were shown our rooms ~ they were actually suites with a full kitchen BUT we had one King bed and not the two beds... More

It's located on River road south of Port Allen on the west side of the Mississippi River. The home sits on much smaller acreage than it's original siting, but still brings off the majesty of the antebellum period. The tours are very good and the guides are quite knowledgable. Over night stays and special events are available for rent through... More

This is the largest surviving plantation house in the South. It was spared bombardment because a Union Naval Officer had been a guest in the house before the war and knew the owners. The mansion house had been in great disrepair and was still undergoing restoration (although you would not have known it). The tour guides were knowledgeable and very... More

Really enjoyed our 45 minute tour of the plantation, would have liked it more if it had not rained as I would have like to see the family cemetery and walk to the rive. The rain was too much so we opted for a trip to restaurant and bar. Drinks were good bartender was super friendly and nice. As for... More

This is an awesome Structure, in a day when a lot of homes come in on trucks[modular and trailers] it is incredible to see the time and effort put into these old homes. The guide was great and the ground were great too. A must do if your in the area.

Wanted to have the full plantation experience. Popped in at other plantations before arriving at Nottoway. The mansion is the grandest and is very well maintained, we loved the tour of the mansion and walking the grounds around the mansion. The dinner was superb!

We spent our anniversary night at Nottoway in room 14. Loved it! The house is beautiful. We received a free tour with our stay. Our guide Beky was knowledgeable and gracious. We ate dinner and breakfast in the Mansion resturants. Also great. Would definitely like to go back and stay in other rooms. Tammy, Louisiana

This is a beautiful plantation home which truly shows the grandeur of life on the River in the 1800's. The story of the Randolph family, who built the house, is also very interesting. The property is well maintained. It is a beautiful setting for photographs.

We were very fortunate to be on an American Queen riverboat cruise of the Mississippi and be docked "across the road and over the levee". You could see our boat from the verandah! The home is beautiful - attention to detail extraordinary and you have to see the White Ball room to believer it. You almost hear the music. Certainly... More
