More rustic than most and not so grand, but very interesting and beautiful in its own right. Colorful inside and out. Many hand painted ceilings. Unusual plumbing arrangement provided water on tap. Inexpensive admission compared to other plantations. Offers military and AAA discounts but not...More

Having seen all but one of the plantations in the area that are open to the public through the years, I was so disappointed in this one. The property is very unattractive due to the oil refinery behind the property. But besides that, the lovely...More

This was definitely my least favourite tour that I had of all the plantation houses and I had the guide all to myself. The house is on a small plot of land completely surrounded by industry which takes away from the ambience. It is certainly...More

After touring 6 different plantations in the same week, this one was definitely the biggest disappointment! The house was in need of some serious upkeep/maintenance. The plantation was bought by an oil company, with the house being all that was left to tour. The tour...More

We were on the Road to New Orleans and decided to check out the San Francisco Plantation House. It is a historic plantation house in the St. John the Baptist Parish. A delightful young lady in Period dress gave us an interesting tour. There were...More

Yes, we all think at that, seeing plantation field and farms. No, this is only the owner house. Well, mansion ! This place is located in front of a oil tank station near the port of Louisiana. This is a shame, but the mansion was...More

Visiting this plantation is quite enjoyable. The house looks different from the other plantations, but I think it is due to the color and the cisterns on either side of the house. It is quite well done inside although not too many rooms to visit....More

This is a unique plantation style home, with grounds that are not quite as grand as their likely former glory. Dudley, the tour guide, is a unique individual, who was committed to giving his own style of tour, complete with role playing and audience participation....More

A stop at San Francisco Plantation is worth your time. Admission is slightly high at $20 but Dudley, our animated tour guide, made for a very entertaining 90 minute guided tour. It all begins with Dudley ringing the bell to announce that the tour is...More
