I have stayed at Madewood several times and will always return there for the magical experience it provides. It is unlike other plantations I have visited in that it is like staying in someone's home. The experience there provides wine and cheese before dinner, a sit-down wonderfully prepared dinner and coffee and drinks after dinner. A full sit-down plantation breakfast... More

Very special experience! You really can feel you are back in time. Beautiful building, grounds and rooms. Charming furniture. Very original idea of the dinner for all the guests together, we had occasion to meet very nice people. If you are looking for something real - you will love it. You can forget about reality.

This is one of our favorite places to stay. If you would like to have the experience of stepping back in time while retaining the comforts of modern day, then this is the place for you! The gracious owner, Keith has created a lovely home in a stately plantation house and warmly welcomes guests to feel at home. Beautiful grounds... More

The only thing we would want to change about our visit to Madewood was how long we stayed. Our stay was far too short. We drove away making plans to come back some time in the future. The building is magnificent!! However, if you don't want old, don't bother. Everything from the furnishings (with the signs "Fragile" on them) to... More

We recall with pleasure the writer's visit and are delighted she enjoyed her stay at Madewood. I would emphasize that guests use all the furnishings at Madewood, with the exception of the suite of Meeks furniture in the Music Room, a delicate rarity (another set is in the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum in New York) and two children's'...

Madewood was a little difficult to find, but well worth the trip. My husband and I wanted to spend a night in a plantation home and Madewood was an excellent choice. We met several couples during the wine and cheese portion of the evening it was served in a lovely parlor off the dining room. Dinner was served by candlelight... More

I recall with great pleasure our visit with these delightful guests, and the stimulating conversation in the parlor after dinner. Everyone at Madewood is delighted that they enjoyed their stay with us. We are completely at fault for not having logs available the honeymoon room. They should have been there when the guests arrived; and we were so engaged in... More

This is a special place and a real gem that I hope will be here for a long time to come. If you take the time to get to know the place and the people you will realize how nice it is. It is in need of a bit of maintenance right now, but it is clear that the work... More

We arrived and were greated warmly and told wine and cheese would be at 6:00PM, dinner at 6:30 which we had no idea as it was a bed and breakfast we were pleasantly surprised also it was included in the...

So authentic , so period , so well done you would think you were in the antebellum time. It felt like we were in the movie gone with the wind. The dinner was a five star meal and the only b&b that served a dinner meal! No tv, no phone, no computer, can't get much better.

My wife and I decided to have a small but formal wedding with a few close friends and family. We chose Madewood from our past visits to the plantation home. The setting on the bayou and the grounds were outstanding. Although we only had about 20 guests, the house can accommodate many more. The staff was very helpful during the... More

There is something magical about the Madewood and having the opportunity to explore the whole house. The elegance of dinner, after dinner coffee and brandy and breakfast the next morning was perfect. My husband who is not fond of veggies actually ate his yams. I wish we had more time to explore beyond the garden but we will be back.... More
