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

If you visit the Houmas, you've got to stay there

Chicago, Illinois

The Inn at Houmas House is a collection of quaint cottages nestled along an alley of ancient oak trees and surrounded by lush gardens, allowing guests to get lost in the tranquility and pristine nature of the Old South. The Mississippi River is just steps away, giving you a feeling of what life might have been like when Houmas House was the most successful sugarcane plantation on Louisiana's River Road. Several years ago, when my wife and I first visited Houmas House, the 20 rooms and suites that make up the most elegant bed-and-breakfast facility we've ever experienced, was still under construction. The three restaurants on the property still were being completed. Today, the complex is perhaps the finest of its kind. Each room is completed with a single king or queen size bed or double queen beds, luxurious bathrooms and a porch to enjoy the view. Comfortable and romantic--Houmas House also hosts one-of-a-king weddings and other special events--each room is decorated with old world furnishings, unique artwork and comfortable seating nooks and includes a large flat screen TV, Wifi, coffee and tea makers and an iron and ironing board. Breakfast for two and a guided tour of the mansion for two is included. We reserved a grand suite with king bed, all the luxury you could ask for, located on Plantation Road Pathway. Open daily from 9 to 7, Houmas House gives visitors an opportunity to tour the grounds and gardens, browse through the gift shop, stay at the Inn and enjoy the Louisiana cuisine of its three restaurants. And experience the history of an era that has gone with the wind.

THE Destination for a “Staycation”

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Although our fellow guests were from far and wide across the country, we made the 30 minute trek from our home to stay at the Inn at Houmas House as our “Staycation”. The grounds and gardens are unsurpassed in south Louisiana and the house and tour is rich in history and heritage. The Caretakers Cottage was warm and inviting with very nice amenities plus an amazing view from the front porch of the oaks and the house.
