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.

The hotel is composed of a dozen of charming wood cottages not far from Mississippi river. The cottage are well equipped and distant from one another so you will enjoy peace and quietness. Cottages are decorated like back in the 20’s but with all modern comfort. You can also enjoy a night walk in the plantation and around the main... More

This property is awaking. Thanks to the generosity of the last owner is not a non profit organisation which are going to preserve the house. You start with the reconstructed slave quarters and find out about their hard life on the plantation. You then go to the house where every half hour there is a guided tour. The inside had... More

This historic site is really worth a visit. I know that the history is sordid but it is nevertheless interesting to see the beautiful grounds as well as the slave quarters to have a better idea of what happened on a plantation at the time.. The oak alley in front of the mansion is magnificent and if you want to... More

Had delicious lunch there several months prior to this visit. This visit had the time to stay in a cottage overnight and to tour the house. We stayed in cottage 5B ( a duplex unit that shares the screened in porch)-very reasonable rate for what we got. Was fine for one night and we could hear the neighbors, but not... More

Oak Alley is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen! The accommodations were expensive and did not include the price of the big house tour, but our cottage was lovely. The cottage had everything you would need, including a luxurious bathroom. We all loved the double -headed shower! The tour was excellent and informative. History truly came... More

Went to Oak Alley with my husband and really enjoyed touring the beautiful grounds. A steamship docked and played music while we strolled around. Our guide inside the house was very knowledgeable but honestly the Oaks were the star. Very picturesque.

We stayed one night in a duplex cottage. The plantation setting is lovely! The accommodations were quite nice. Our cottage had a claw foot tub which I really enjoyed after a long day of traveling. I worried about noise since it was a duplex but it was very quite. We did arrive after closing time so we did not get... More

Thank you so much for your glowing review, and thank you for choosing us. I'm not sure why there was no wi-fi. We are out in the country and it is spotty sometimes, but we do have free wi-fi in all rooms. 5A and 5B are the only ones without TVs, because it is a duplex. Thanks for writing a... More

Oak Alley Plantation is a place everyone should visit. I lived in New Orleans in the past and have visited most of the plantations on River Road. Oak Alley is my favorite and really the gem of them all. The 300 year old live oak trees that make 2 long rows at the front of the house are beautiful. The... More

Part of our "Bucket List" is to visit as many plantations as we can to learn more about the life and times in the early history of an era long gone. Tour guide was dressed in costume, was very knowledgeable and the tour is most educational.....great way to learn about "Life on the Mississippi"

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
