The Crown Jewel of Louisiana’s River Road

Houmas House is perhaps the most impressive of the plantation houses built alongside the rolling Mississippi River and now offers beautiful cottage accommodation in the grounds of the plantation itself. Dating from 1840, the stunning antebellum ‘Big House’ is the main feature of the estate and is open on specific dates for atmospheric tours. The rest of the time guests can explore the beautiful grounds, watch the ceaseless Mississippi or enjoy a meal at the exciting venues across the site. At the end of the day, guests can retire to their authentically decorated cottage to enjoy modern amenities and plenty of Old South charm.

  • Dine at several different restaurants
  • One of the most impressive plantation estates in the Deep South
  • Admire the beautiful 1840’s antebellum ‘Big House’
  • Soak up the 'Old South' atmosphere
  • Book a tour to see inside the mansion

Quiet Impressed with the rooms & facility

Youngsville, Louisiana

I stayed at the Houmas House in one of the cottages for a B&B convention. Because I own a B&B, I checked all the details and amenities in the room and passed my white clove test for cleanliness. Everything passed the test and I was very comfortable. The Wifi was slow; but I was told they were having problems with cox. The food in the restaurant was pricey, but it matched the pricing for the rooms! I was extremely impressed with breakfast. The plates were ceramic oyster shells that held a ton of food in it; personally, I could have eaten 3 times with the amount of good food in the plate. The breakfast food was great and I could not ask for better service from Josephine. The grounds were over-the-top beautiful and stunning. I can't wait to return with my husband. I was not able to take a tour of the home and would love to go back.

Wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary

Denham Springs, Louisiana

I surprised my wife with a trip to Houmas House for our 15 year anniversary. The package that I purchased included a tour of the mansion, dinner voucher, one night stay in the cottages and breakfast the next morning. The grounds at Houmas House are well taken care of and the history is amazing. The restaurants were incredible with outstanding service. I highly recommend Houmas House for a day trip or a stay over night to enjoy some of Louisiana’s finest history and food.
