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.

  • One of the most impressive plantation estates in the Deep South
  • Admire the beautiful 1840’s antebellum ‘Big House’

Second visit and even better!

Eugene, Oregon

I LOVE this place. It is magical! It was our second visit and it was even better. The cottages are beautiful and very tasteful. Our room was very very clean; bed and bedding were out of this world amazing and the French bath products were a real treat. Josephine and Lauren, who work in the carriage house restaurant are top notch. They are so warm and friendly. The pecan steen syrup butter is to die for. The chef is AMAZING. The dinners we had were fantastic. The grounds are so beautiful. Houmas House is paradise! I can’t wait to return.

Nice but overpriced

Houston, Texas

We stayed one night in one of the cottages. We had chosen the cheapest room which ended up with tax costing $388 (other rooms go up to about $600). The room turned out to be in the cottage closest to the road which gets quite busy around 8am and 5pm. It was quiet during the night though. The "porch" of the room has a view of the road and the levee behind it. The room was nothing more than a nice hotel room, furnished with nice antiques. Thankfully the price included 2 tickets to tour the house (a$55 value) which was the highlight of our stay, truly worth a detour. Breakfast was fantastic, with a choice of 7 different options, and our server Josephine really went the extra mile to make us happy. The portions were so huge we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day... Overall a nice place to stay but overpriced.
