Our meal was exceptional in every way. Service was fantastic and our waitress was so personable and professional. We had the Shrimp Gumbo, a gorgeous Salad with Blackened Shrimp, the Seafood Au Gratin, Buttermilk Pie, and the Bread Pudding with Sauce. These were all so delicious, I might make the 5 1/2 hour drive just to eat here again!
We stayed 2 nights in Cottage #4. So absolutely wonderful. It was large, comfortable and private. We order evening meal service one night. The cheese fettuccini was delicious and there was plenty to eat. We ordered cheesecake and buttermilk pie. So tasty. I also had the Pecan pie the day before. Too die for!!! Anyone staying on the grounds had access to the entire plantation after hours. So wonderful to be able to walk around without a crowd. Would highly recommend.
I absolutely LOVED this place!!! From the adorable cottage (we stayed in #4 which is about a century old) to the beautiful grounds we loved it all! We stayed here after a cruise and honestly this was better then the cruise! You get 24hr access to the ground so you can go "ghost hunting" after dark. We did not find any ghosts but an adorable cat followed us around the entire time! The breakfast in the morning was very good! We spent the next day just hanging around the grounds enjoying the picnic tables and loving the beautiful weather we had. We stayed here until we had to get to the airport. It was extremely comfortable and enjoyable. I also loved learning about the slaves. They got into their lives and really brought them to life in the self guided tour. If you get the chance to stay here I 100% suggest it!!! …
We ate brunch after a morning visit to the plantation, just ordered the brunch specials and they were great! Staff was fast and friendly! Would definitely come again, so much more to explore and learn about.
What a pleasant surprise. I thought the food would be bland, dull, and overpriced. I was wrong! Great fried green tomatoes with shrimp, gumbo, and salad. But the dessert was beyond fabulous. Praline cheesecake in a rum sauce was the best cheesecake I have ever had. Our server and the staff all made us feel so welcome. A great unintentional stop.
Stayed two nights in one of the newer cottages - Cottage #8. Lovely Shot Gun style with beautiful decor. Ordered evening meal that was in our kitchenette when we arrived - excellent Creole Cooking. Good breakfasts at the restaurant in the morning. Lovely to be right at Oak Alley Plantation for first tour in the morning and before breakfast and after dinner walks around the grounds and giant oaks. Highly recommend!!
My husband and I stayed in cabin 6 for 2 nights for a quiet get-away. The cabin is beautiful and very comfortable. The cabin comes with breakfast at the Plantation restaurant- delicious and plentiful. Our waitress, Shelly, was super friendly and helpful. While stating in the cabin, we were able to walk the grounds and enjoy the gardens. The house tour is not included but of course we did the tour and were not disappointed. It is out in the country so getting to other places to eat is a drive and the on-site restaurant closes at 3:00 with the snack bar (serves ice cream, sandwiches and mixed drinks) is open to 5:00. Just something to be aware of. All in all a wonderful place to get away.
This was a sister trip and we loved Oak Alley! We stayed overnight in Cottage 4 and it was wonderful! The private screened in porch was enjoyable. The beds were so comfortable too.The walk to the plantation and restaurant was easy. (And probably the closest of all the cottages!) Breakfast was delicious and plenty of choices. Our tour guid I’d a good job of giving us a glimpse of plantation life. I couldn’t believe that some of the trees were over 200 years old! Great visit and highly recommend.
I have always wanted to visit Oak Alley Plantation and when it worked out that we could, we decided to go all in and make reservations for an overnight stay. So glad we did!!! We were is cabin 5B. It was quiet, very clean and it had a screen porch out front and a private deck out back. By staying on the property, guests were free to roam the grounds even after it was closed to the public for the night. Walking the front lane and seeing the house lit up, and the lights on the trees was amazing. Complimentary breakfast at the restaurant came with the stay. The staff was wonderful, very friendly. I highly recommend this experience! Thanks!
We rented cottage #4 for 2 nights. This is one of the historic cottages, over 100 years old. We arrived around 6.30 p.m. Efficient and friendly check in. Dinner was in the fridge (everything was labeled, with instructions on how to reheat it), and even the table had been set. Cottage is lovely, and fitted our needs perfectly. It is spacious, private, and clean. Shower stall is the biggest I have ever seen in my life. I did not expect housekeeping during our short stay with COVID19 going on, but it was a really nice surprise that here at Oak Alley they do come in. Included in the price of your stay is a "country breakfast". Basically you can order anything from the breakfast menu. Breakfast is served in restaurant and it was EXCELLENT. Highly recommend staying at Oak Alley!…
