Everything about Houmas House is spectacular! You could spend an entire day enjoying the gardens. My husband & I enjoyed walking around and getting some ideas for our own little garden. We were amazed by the giant lilly pads! I hate that I can't remember our guide's name, but she did a very nice job of showing us around the home itself. She was dressed in period attire and took extra time to show us some of her favorite items in the house. My husband loved the 65 lb. Lincoln statue! After our tour, we enjoyed brunch at the plantation resataurant. The food & service were very good! The gift shop is very nice and filled with beautiful items. On a side note, a lady on the house tour with us was in a wheel chair and special accomodations were made so that she could enjoy the tour along with the rest of our group.
