“Interesting and beautiful!”

Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

We stayed one night in the Overseer's Cottage. It was a comfortable bed in a large room with a modern bath. Quiet old plantation with plenty of sitting areas to enjoy in the evening after the public tours end. The mansion remains open to overnight guests. We had the buffet breakfast for $8.50 pp which was an average breakfast for an average price in the restaurant dining room. The best seating is along the glass windows, but you need to call ahead for reservations to get them. The restaurant serves all meals, but we only ate breakfast. Enjoyed the house tour the following morning which was well worth it. The stories of the family life in the days of the Civil War made the local history come alive.

The one hour tour of this magnificent plantation home is well worth the cost ($20 each). The house is nicely furnished and each room tells a story (added to by the guide). The grounds are worth a short tour as well. This is one of the nicest and best-maintained plantations that we visited (& it is also a resort, although we did not stay there). We did have lunch in the restaurant and found the food excellent.

This one hour tour on a magnificent property will leave you awe-inspired. My wife and I felt as if we were transported back into time with the information that the tour host provided. Beautiful period furniture, woodwork through out the mansion and dozens of pieces that were reflective of this era. It did not hurt that it was a beautiful south Louisiana day which filled the rooms with sunshine. I could feel the presence of those who occupied this charming, massive home. If you are near Baton Rouge, this property is only about 30 minutes from downtown by car and well worth the $$$. Try to plan your visit near lunchtime-the Mansion Restaurant is elegant, with outstanding service and breathtaking food.

Be sure and take the tour of the main house, learn the history of the 54,000 sq. ft. home. The stairs were actually covered in brown velvet. The furnishings are either original to the home or of the era. So well maintained and a lovely location for weddings and parties. The food was excellent. We also walked around to view the cemetery where original family members are buried.

We enjoyed the stories that came with the plantation! The grounds were beautiful! We ate downstairs and the food and view were great!!! Try the Fried Green Tomatoes!
