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

A One Night Stopover on the way to the 2018 Sugar Bowl

Frisco, Texas

This place was absolutely perfect. The grounds are beautiful and the staff is friendly We had dinner in the Carriage House and then also breakfast Food was awesome. Start with drinks in the turtle bar and make sure that you take the tour of the mansion! It's awesome!!

Fayetteville, North Carolina

We loved the accommodation and the restaurants. Our tour guide was wonderful. We've already recommended this venue to many of our friends and family. The gardens and landscaping were especially beautiful. The cottage we stayed in felt like a part of the original home, with it's period reproductions and décor.
