A morning visit to this gorgeous antebellum house and peaceful grounds. Excellent guides in period dress all add to the atmosphere of this wonderful building. What a contrast to visit the slave quarters! Very sobering! A small restaurant and shop all add to a lovely visit.

We stayed in cottage 6 and found it very quaint and pleasant. Booking directly through their website was easy (we were organising our stay from overseas). The food served at the restaurant onsite was very nice - do make sure though that you place your order for dinner in advance as they conveniently deliver it to you and I had...

Staying overnight on the property is a great experience. The cabin was comfortable. The bed was good. The shower was good. You have to pay a separate fee to tour the plantation but you can take a late tour with a smaller group. You can wander the grounds.

My wife & I stayed in cottage #8 for 2 nights. It was awesome. These cottages are new, clean, modern places to stay. WIFI, AC, 2 Flat Screens, bedroom, living room, kitchen and bath. I cannot comment on the others but, #9 looked just like #8. From these cottages, we would walk to breakfast, which was included. We had a...

Take a tour that cost around $90.00 each person for 2 plantations. (Oak Alley and Laura Plantation - each is just 5 minutes apart). Lots of history and the scenery is great! There is a restaurant for a quick snack at oak alley.

We booked to stay here for 1 night in a 2 bed detatched cottage (no 4) in the grounds of Oak Alley Plantation. There's no restaurant service in the evening so we brought our own food and used the kitchen facilities in the cottage to cook supper. Beds were comfortable, bathroom was adequate, sitting room was functional. Its all very...

This was a surprise overnight stay for me. I was in New Orleans and my husband was able to join me for a couple of days. We went from New Orleans to Vacherie in about 45 minutes. A very easy and lovely drive. Oak Alley Plantation has 9 cabins that are available for overnight stays. We stayed in Cabin 8...

Oak Alley is an iconic destination along the Mississippi River. It offers a chance to learn a bit about our history and just for a moment think you are there in time. There are multiple opportunities for interesting photography among the oaks and the house.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nowhere else in the south will you find such a spectacular setting!The story of Oak Alley Plantation began with a vision, an alley of 28 oaks later mirrored by a manor with 28 columns. In the early 1700’s an unknown settler planted twenty-eight evenly spaced oak trees in two rows leading from his humble cottage toward the mighty Mississippi River. Over a decade later, an aristocrat by name of Jacques Telephores Roman lured his New Orleans socialite bride to leave her city live life, to achieve his dream of becoming a sugar king. In 1839, Jacques and Celina built this spectacular mansion, leaving the Roman legacy for us to enjoy today. Come and enjoy her beauty and dream of her rich past. Explore 25 acres of history and romance, regret and rebirth, tragedy and triumph. Enjoy a Mint Julep or refreshing lemonade while strolling these historic grounds and see the legacies left by the Romans, the Stewarts and those in between. Step back in antebellum elegance and tour the Big House with a guide in period dress. And witness the reconstructed slave quarters to understand the lives of the workers whose labor made plantation life and its luxuries possible. Visit the Civil War Interpretive Exhibit which consists of a commanding officer's tent, staffed most days by one of our three Civil War interpreters. These interpreters, along with our video kiosk, will allow visitors to understand one of the most crucial periods in this nation's history. Enjoy small group discussions with one of our interpreters who are available to answer your specific questions.Dine with us and savor flavorful Cajun & Creole dishes in our Restaurant or grab a light lunch or ice cream in our Café. Browse our impressive Gift Shop. Spend a tranquil evening in one of our 19th century old cottages. Even plan a wedding, corporate or special event. There is just so much to experience at Oak Alley!  ... more   less
