I was after a shot of the plantation devoid of any humans. I knew this would only happen if we stayed the night. As luck would have it, we got the only room free for six weeks. It fell on a Saturday, too. So, we booked it. Upon arrival, we were told that a wedding was taking place and to... More

We arrived late and left early (following an early morning tour). Why didn't we plan a longer stay?! We booked an overnight in Cabin #6. The staff from checking into our room, to breakfast (I recommend the crawfish omelet), to our lovely tour guide were all accommodating. The cabin, the grounds, everything was amazing. What an experience. Our cabin included... More

Oak Alley is simply stunning. The alley of old oaks is particularly amazing. The guided tour is excellent with interesting stories of the plantation and family. The self guided tour around the slaves' houses was also excellent. The grounds are beautiful. Highly recommended.

Positives: Does a reasonable job of depicting the treatment of slaves in the 1800s. Beautiful, mature oaks and grounds with a beautiful view from the cottage balcony or porch. We had a 16 year old young lady as our tour guide who we only found out at the end of the tour was in high school. She was excellent. Negatives... More

The plantation property is beautifully preserved. The admission to the big house ($20) is a bit steep considering the house has only two floors and limited rooms for viewing. However, it is conducted by tour guides who are steeped in the plantation's history. We stayed in a couple of small cottages on the plantation and enjoyed our stay. Because it... More

If you can spend the night do it! The cutest little cottages to over night in. They give you flashlights and you can walk the grounds at night, after the crowds leave, You feel as if you have the Plantation grounds all to yourself. The beds are very comfortable. We had lunch, dinner delivered to our room, and breakfast the... More

we didn't stay here but we did tour the property is part of a sightseeing trip. The grounds were beautifully maintained and the gift shop was one of the best who's on the Mississippi. Understanding of the TO trees served your purpose to cool the house by forming a tunnel from the river was just amazing.

We visited while we were on vacation in New Orleans. The drive is about an hour and a half. There are a few plantations in the area, but we only chose to visit Oak Alley, so I'm unable to compare it to others. The grounds are stunning. The giant, 300 year-old oak trees are gorgeous. The tour begins with replica... More

My husband and I stayed here in Cottage 3 the night before we left our tour of Southern Louisiana, and I was about to move in permanently! The cottage is very sweet, and is equipped with a jacuzzi tub, large shower, and tempurpedic mattress: the perfect combination of modern amenities and charm. If you stay in one of the cottages,...
