Response from susanpshaffer, Owner at Ardoyne Plantation
Responded Jun 23, 2020
Thank you for visiting. We always encourage visitors to walk the grounds and take photos outdoors. We have had a very wet Spring and perhaps it was raining the day you visited? We do not lead tours of the cane fields as it is an active sugarcane farm and is not safe to do so. As for the interior, the only room not viewable is the kitchen which our family uses daily. While we do not allow visitors to walk into our living quarters upstairs, the doors are open for viewing. As for cost, we are the least expensive of all the plantation home tours while also having more original artifacts to show. Thank you for your honest review so we can better learn how to serve our visitors.

This home and all it’s artifacts from long ago were so cool.. the family is also kin to several famous people.. highly recommend the tours. Not suitable for young kids because of the antiques.

Visited this plantation while staying in the area for a few days and have been to several other plantation tours, this was by far the best. The tour guide Mrs Shaffer also resides there as a 6th generation family member. Her love of both the plantation and history is overwhelming. The history of family members, furnishings and stories of movies filmed there is remarkable. I would love to visit again and she treats everyone very personally and makes you feel very welcome and answers any questions you may have.

We traveled quite a bit out of our way to tour Ardoyne and we sure were glad we did so. Our tour guide actually lives in the home and is part of the family who has been there since the 1800s. She gave a wonderfully interesting and personal tour. Beautiful and whimsicle pieces of furniture, art and collectibles. Fascinating history lesson well presented. We really had a great time. One of our favorite plantation tours (out of 15 or so that we took in the NOLA, St. Francisville, Baton Rouge area). Make sure to make time for Ardoyne, it's worth it!

This an excellent tour, would recommend this to anyone. I could have spent a whole day looking at all the artifacts including some fantastic quilts and needlework.
