We loved the South, and truly enjoyed our say here @ Oak Ally Plantation. We even watched a wedding taking place. What a magical place. We stayed in Cottage #6 & we loved the whole feel. We got dinner ordered in that night it was a little pricy for what you got, but perhaps the next time, we will bring our own food to eat. The beds were very comfortable too. It does need some TLC inside some painting, of walls & doors would help. We enjoyed our tour but felt that was a little pricy @40. a couple. All in all we loved it!!! Off season was very quiet.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.
