Beautifully decorated for the holidays. We loved the real Star Gazer Lilly ornaments on the Christmas tree! Tess was our wonderful tour guide of the estate. We enjoyed having the gardens all to ourselves to stroll through leisurely after the guided tour of the house....More

Beautiful, well kept mansion and grounds. Well worth the time to visit. The staff was very pleasant, articulate, and helpful. The house also has a nice history about it and the stall are willing to tell their story.

If you don’t have time to drive to the plantations that dot River Road on both sides of the Mississippi River, then I highly suggest you see Longue View. It’s just a short Uber or cab ride from the French Quarter and is well worth...More

This is the home of the heir to the Sears fortune and is quite an achievemnt. Beautiful and way ahead of it's time when built in the early 1940's.

Lovely place. Way ahead of its time. A little bit out of the way but only a cab ride away. Not a plantation but very interesting.

The Gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The Children's garden was adorable and my kids absolutely loved it. The staff was slightly rude and almost put out that we came to visit (they were preparing for what looked like a reception), but we still really...More

The home and gardens are beautiful. Each is maintained to show the very best of what the Stern family/owners would have wanted. Staff is wonderful. Make the time to visit!

In spite of having visited New Orleans steadily for over 30 years, I had never heard of this place: perhaps I had been touring a few too many plantation on the outskirts of NOLA! Regardless of this oversight, my companion and I thoroughly enjoyed the...More

Swamp Tour, Pharmacy Museum, Plantation, Haunted History Tour are all great. You won't need a car anywhere within the quarter... only to get to the plantation and swamp, but the tours usually provide transport. We did a combo swamp and plantation tour but I don't know if that's included with your pass. Definitely do the paddleboat cruise down the Mississippi too... but don't do the dinner package if you can avoid it. There's so many better places to eat in the quarter and in Garden District,...More
