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!

The house tour isn’t worth the price of admission. It’s rushed, you’re not able to see the entire house and it’s very loud as there are other tours going on around you. The housekeeping staff for the cottages are a joke. Their boss, Melissa, doesn’t allow her staff enough time to properly clean the cottages. Two particular employees she calls Hekyl & Jekyl don’t even clean at all when left unsupervised. The restaurant hours aren’t accommodating for overnight guests. The grounds themselves are the only thing worth seeing.

The nicest part about actually staying at Oak Alley is being able to walk around the grounds when everyone had left but tbh you can do that anyway as the gates are open! The bungalows are very nice (although the bathrooms are small) but there is no restaurant after 4 pm so you have to order food in and it's very average. The WiFi is poor, so you can't stream movies and the TV only had access to basic free channels. At $300 a night we thought this was unacceptable. We also didn't get a discount on the house tour so that was an extra $52 for the two of us!

Gorgeous views like no other with the big house and oak alley near the cottages. While staying in the cottages you also are provided a flashlight to walk the grounds and see the oak alley and big house lit up at night. The cottages were very nice and had everything you need for an overnight stay. Bed was comfortable with Tempur-Pedic mattress. Included breakfast was excellent. Although the site has lounge, store, and restaurant on site, the only downside is that everything closed at 5pm.

Went here for a lunch after walking around the grounds. The service was pretty good, and they were accommodating to fussy kids that dont like this food touching that food, etc.... they had a variety of gumbos, salads, sandwiches and main dishes in the cajun/Louisiana style. They have a cookbook and much of what they serve comes out of the cookbook. The portions were generous. I had a shrimp po boy and bread pudding for dessert, both were quite good.

We spent one night in cottage number 3 and would highly recommend. We were welcomed with cold lemonade, which was a lovely touch, and taken to our cottage. We had ordered a pre-prepared meal (recommended for a Sunday or Monday evening when many local restaurants are closed) and the dining table was already set, with the food in the fridge ready to be heated. It felt like we were dining in our own smaller version of the grander, big house. After dark, we had a wander round the grounds and it was amazing to have them almost to ourselves. Breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. This was not inexpensive, but it was a night that we won’t ever forget.
