This house & grounds are spectacular!!! We arrived early and took the tour of the house first before walking the grounds! Our tour guide was very good and told us much about the furnishings which include several very unique & valuable items. The tour of the house takes about an hour. The owner of the property actually lives in the house and you are allowed to view almost the entire house and take all the pictures you want. This is usually not the case when taking tours of other plantation homes!
The grounds of Houmas House are absolutely stunning. If you are in to photography, this is the place to be! We also got to see "Princess Grace", the owner's yellow lab who graces their website! Be sure to take time to eat lunch at Cafe Burnside. The prices are affordable for lunch with a great choice...be sure to try the Eggplant Napoleon!!
I highly recommend this plantation and hope to be able to visit again. It's definitely worth the $20.00 fee!More
