Be prepared as you are driving to this Plantation that the surrounding areas are farm/ industrial towns that are not tourist friendly areas (nothing to see in town, but a nice country drive minus the factories processing sugar cane). The closest decent place to eat (outside) the Plantation is a great Wine/Bistro in Donaldsonville, about 25 min away, but worth the ride for lunch. So plan on eating at the Plantation, which has great food & drink, but ck out the Wine bar in Donaldsonville, and ck out city hall there.
You should be a history minded person, and love the grandeur of yesterdays charm & architecture to truly appreciate this Plantation. Nightlife is limited to the charm of the mansion, dining & grounds.
We were fortunate to be hear for the holidays & Dec. Xmas decorations & lights that are great to enjoy this time of year. Our room was outside the actual mansion, but were newer and very large, comfortable, and had beautiful furnishings and great beds!. Sitting on our rockers on the front porch sipping wine & enjoying our porch overlooking the pond, fountain, and beautiful grounds of the Plantation was wonderful.
(Comment: The grounds do have construction happening because of their expansion, but no workers were present when we were there, but you may want pick a weekend)
The rest. in the Mansion was great, food was very good!!!!!!! Did not try the cafe, but our breakfast was included in our room rate, and was a nice buffet.
With the exception of one of employee's, the bellman, all of the staff was great.
The tour was well worth it, and was included in the room rate. Did not use the pool area, to chilly during our stay, but was very nice area in itself. PS. Great place for a wedding, if you live LA.
