This is an amazing example of a southern plantation. Beautiful in every sense of measurement. The house is incredible and well restored and the other buildings on the grounds provide an exposure to the life of those who lived there in the early to mid-1800's. Great staff and guides. A must see if you like historic sites.

Enjoyed very much visiting this property. It was lovely and the tour was very nice also. The grounds were beautiful and the restaurant was great. We enjoyed the restaurant so much we went back the next day for lunch also.

We were greeted with glasses of delicious lemonade, a good start to our visit. Two sweet girls took us to cottage 4 and gave us a tour of the adorable cottage. There were several vases of fresh cut roses, which was so pleasant after our long dreary winter here in the north. The rooms were very clean. Our meal was... More

The house is gorgeous. The tour guide was in period antebellum clothing and she was fantastic, imparting the the history of the plantation and surrounding area. They also include history of the enslaved people that lived there. They truly did a wonderful job. I will visit again. I highly recommend visiting the site.

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
