You've seen it in several movies such as Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte (1964), Interview with a Vampire (1994), and even in Beyoncé's "Déjà Vu" Music Video and B'Day" CD insert photos.
The interior is in very good condition and furnished as it would have been back when it was a viable, working sugar cane plantation. the guided tour of the interior was informative and the grounds which can be explored are very picturesque. The interior is great too, but don't try to take any photos inside... NOT permitted, even without a flash. I could understand them not wanting folks to video the tour... I get that... but to not permit photos after paying a good price to get in? THAT kinda' put me off. Other plantation tours have no such restriction, except for video... BUT, if you are into history, architecture, or antiques it's a must see .

House is set in lovely grounds and is trully something out of a Hollywood movie.
Tour was informative if not a little dry. Had a couple nice old cars and a small US Civil War exhibit.
Also had lunch as part of our tour which was nice with all the Creole favourites: gumbo, jumbalaya, etc.

This is a well-restored plantation mansion (painted in white/pink tradition at the time). Contrasting the tour with the tour of Laura plantation, this was more picturesque and more impressive (and better kept) grounds. It is also more commercialized (B&B, restaurant etc. on site).

We ate lunch at the restaurant and it was excellent Creole fair. They even had a veggie po'boy for my vegetarian sister. The grounds are self guided and absolutely beautiful. The house itself was large and impressive. However nothing in the house is original to that house but it was original to the period. The tours were not very well planned as we waited a lot between each room waiting for the group in front of us to move on. Our tour guide did not deliver a clear crisp presentation of the house. He was unsure about some of his answers other customers asked. I did not feel the tour warranted the admission fee. If you only have time or funds for one plantation tour I would suggest considering the Laura Plantation. It is a smaller less impressive house but much more historic.
