Although we were staying at a timeshare in New Orleans for a week, we decided we couldn't miss one night in a genuine plantation house. Chose Madewood because of Tripadvisor and guide book reviews.
The place is a little difficult to find (some other guests got lost using Mapquest) but a phone call to the hotel was all that was needed to set us straight.
We had the upstairs Master Bedroom which has floor length windows that slide up and enable you to go out onto the front porch. A lovely four poster bed, antique armoirs and a little sofa made it very comfortable. The only downside was the bathroom. It was constructed from the original closet and therefore is very small and there is a big step up which could be a concern for older guests.
Wine and nibbles were served at 6pm where we met the other guests. We were lucky to meet some great people and I think this is the biggest reason we enjoyed our visit. Dinner was nice and we were pleased that the wine decanter was refilled as necessary! The house was especially beautiful because of the Christmas trees and decorations.
After a huge breakfast, we had a tour of the house and learned about the background of the house's various owners. Since the owners often stay at the house, it has a comfortable lived-in atmosphere, with family photographs on display.
