I stayed here and although the beauty of the home was magnificent, the owner and crew were very unwelcoming. The vibe was "hurry up" and we could tell. It is my opinion that they were new and not used to a first class experience that people come to expect as with other plantations in the area. Perhaps they are working... More

Resting on about 100 acres on the east bank of the Mississippi River, located in Darrow across the river from the Ascension Parish seat of Donaldsonville, about 47 miles west of New Orleans or 25 miles southeast of Baton Rouge, the Bocage Plantation House is considered one of the jewels of the River Road plantations. Constructed in 1837 in Greek... More

Having stayed overnight at the Bocage when it was available for such, I was so impressed. It was one of the last plantations to offer rooms within the main house, and not in some outbuilding. It was a truly beautiful and rare thing. I will miss that greatly.

My wife chose Bocage for our Wedding venue, as it was very secluded and worked perfect for our small family wedding. We stay here as much as possible, as the owner and property manager are great to work with. We look forward to coming back every year.

We didn't go to spend the night. My family just wanted to tour the plantation. Didn't know if we could, but upon knocking on the back door, we were let in by Roberto who gave us a personal private tour. Very laid back. We sat around an antique table and chatted about the house. We felt like a part of... More

We went to visit and tour the plantation on Friday September 26, 2014. We checked the web site the night before leaving New Orleans to ensure their operating days and hours. We arrived after they were scheduled to be opened only to find the gate locked. Using our smart phones we doubled checked the operating hours and ensured they were... More

It actually is very difficult to change the website as to hours open for tours or not. We do decide to do maintenance on an as needed basis, and sometimes this cannot be predicted. Since the webmaster and the manager are in different states it is simply impossible to notify the webmaster and have him post that we are closed... More

The handsome, charming Roberto is a true southern gentleman and without a doubt the host with the most! the ambience was wonderful and the breakfast delicious. Roberto was considerate, generous and gracious, we really didn't want to leave. one day I will return and stay for a week,... More

After reading the very positive reviews on tripadvisor, I booked 2 rooms at the Bocage Plantation as a surprise wedding anniversary gift for my wife and daughters in August 2014. On arrival we were greeted by the manager, Roberto, who was very pleasant and welcoming. Although the plantation does need some minor work on the exterior (ie the front wooden... More
