We arrived at Rip Van Winkle Gardens in time for the final tour of the John Jefferson Home. The house was lovely and our guide was very knowledgeable. We stayed in Cottage 2, and it was just perfect. Yes, the breakfast was minimal, but we did receive a bottle of wine and cheese as well as plenty of other snacks.... More

We loved our stay at the cottage, It was very nice and the price was very good. We enjoyed our snacks and our cereal and bagels were also good. The weather was cold but the gardens were still beautiful. We would stay here again.

My daughter and I stayed for four nights to just relax and get away. We stayed in the servants quarters #2. The grounds are beautiful and as a guest you have access to them any time while you are a guest. While the rooms might need a little updating, they were very, very clean and the staff goes out of...

Rip Van Winkle Gardens was everything we hoped- a beautiful, peaceful retreat away from the hustle bustle. You drive a mile or so down a country road off LA 14, between rows of oaks and past a pond, then through the iron gates to the Jefferson Estate. We stayed in the servants' quarters which were converted into 2 comfortable cabins,... More

For a B & Breakfast that costs almost 200.00 I expect more than frosted flakes or frozen bagels. The toaster oven was inoperable. The incredibly small and boring bit of cheese was vacuum packed and no sharp utensils were provided for opening said item. The cheap bottle of wine did not suit either. The bed was fine and the place... More

My husband and I spent 1 night here during a whirlwind trip before heading to NOLA. We stayed in the Cook's cottage .. which was fine. As pointed out by others, it could use some upgrades but all in all enjoyed more than a chain hotel or smaller B&B. Stocked fridge was nice. We enjoyed some wine with cheese and... More

Unfortunately, we arrived after dark and had no real directions on the location of our cottage(Cook's). We did finally wander around in the dark and found it. We immediately called for immediate pizza delivery (as other guests had said they had done) as it is a long, dark hike into town. Unfortunately they no longer deliver pizza that far out,... More

This property is seriously gorgeous. It's owned by a landscape architect, and he definitely knows his stuff. As other reviewers have noted, when you stay in one of the B&B suites, you have complete access to the beautiful grounds. Peacocks wander around, breeze blows through the oak trees, and a friendly cat showed up on our porch in the morning... More

This was a great stopover for Mobile to Houston trip. Stayed 2 nights so we could be sure to enjoy the gardens. Quiet and private. Had the whole place to ourselves one night! Enjoyed our morning coffee on porch with dozens of hummingbirds covering the bottlebrush trees. Peacocks were beautiful too. Learned a lot during the visit about Joseph Jefferson,... More

Recently we have been traveling between Houston and Baton Rouge for family matters. We have begun treating ourselves on the return trip to Houston by stopping off in small towns in south Louisiana for brief stays to relax. This time we stayed at the Cottages at Rip Van Winkle based on an Internet search. We booked for two nights and... More
