Impeccable service, the food is outstanding and I literally felt like a princess our entire four day stay! From the candle lit dinners to the coffee delivered to our extremely spacious room, I just cannot say enough about this home! Mr. Keith was a wonderful host who made us feel completely at home and Angie is just a doll! Thank... More

Many of the plantations along the River Road have become big business and have lost their charm (yes, Nottaway, I'm talking to you). Madewood takes you back in time. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel most welcome. We had not had time for lunch, and it was a while before cocktail hour, so we asked if... More

The contrasts between Whitney, Houmas, and Madewood were striking and illuminating. One gets a feeling of despair at Whitney, "Disneyland" at Houmas, and of history at Madewood, where the plantation house is now a small (in number of rooms) bed and breakfast. One sleeps in rooms furnished with period pieces and updated with bathrooms and space heaters. Electrical conduits adorn... More

We just returned from Madewood Plantation and for four days I felt like Scarlett O'Hara at Tara. Madewood is majestic inside and out! We were wined and dined by Angie who is such a gem and obviously loves the house. We stayed in the Master Suite upstairs because of the balcony but any room is just as nice and full... More

We spent two nights in this marvelous place with our three kids. This home and its furnitures take you back in time, with a very nice staff. We had also a very good supper shared with the other friendly guests. We'll come back !

This is the most beautiful antebellum home I've seen in Louisiana! We stayed here 2 nights and had the optional dinner in the dining room. The food was adequate and plentiful. The bedroom on the main floor is large and gorgeous. There are 4 large bedrooms upstairs. The two on front have options to walk out on to the front... More

My husband and I felt completely at home from the moment we entered the door of this charming home. Keith, the unpretentious owner, and Angie, manager and cook extraordinaire, go out of their way to ensure that each guest has a memorable stay. Angie even called us before our arrival to be sure that she could work around my husband's... More

Madewood Plantation is a short drive from New Orleans and it was a pretty drive to reach it. You passed sugarcane field after sugarcane field which were in different stages of growing or harvesting. The plantation itself is set far enough back from the road that noise is not an issue. While we waited for the check-in, we explored the... More
