When I was planning my trip to New Orleans, I knew I wanted to rent a car and visit a few of the many plantations in the area. The problem was how to narrow them all down to a handful to see in one day. There are so many plantations to see that are open to the public. If you... More

I had looked forward to this tour when I was in Louisana last month. It is a beautiful location, well kept and the tour guides were dressed in period clothing. But they were busy with back to back tours and I felt rushed. Not enough time to take pictures or ask questions. No mention of the slaves or slave life... More

This place is absolutely worth a visit! The entrance fee is 22 bucks which includes the big mansion tour that will explain to you the history of the grounds. We were lucky that also a slave quarters tour was additionally offered, but even if you do that one self-guided, you will learn a lot because there a displays everywhere. Even... More

I made the effort to see this plantation after having already visited one the day before and I'm so glad I did. It's picture perfect and the guides do a great job of telling the story of the family. Definitely worth the effort!

Beautifully restored house and grounds, knowledgable tour guides dressed in historic costumes. a plus was Ipad if unable to climb staircase and golf cart to avoid long hot walk in the sun to cafe, etc.

Unfortunately Trip Advisor does not allow half star ratings. The only knock on my visit was that the house tours were running behind schedule, so we had to cut it short to make an appointment. That's the reason for a half star loss. The house is well appointed, the tour guide is a great story teller, and does a great... More

We just visited this plantation during our visit of the southern US states. We decided to stay at the available cottages for one night and it was really worth the money because you are allowed to enter the plantation at all the time. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was pretty good, since you were allowed to choose it á... More

The grounds of this plantation welcome you into another era. The oak trees make for a beautiful setting. The tour of the big house is excellent and the guides tell quite the story of the families and their histories. There is also a nice gift shop and cafe on the property.
