Stunning plantation house dating from the 1840’s

Dating from 1846, this iconic Greek Revival Antebellum house is one of Louisiana's finest plantation homes and opens its doors to guests seeking an authentic Deep South experience.  Start your stay with a wine and cheese reception at 6pm in the library and embark on your historical country house break. Guest rooms are spread between the spectacular main house and a historic riverboat captain’s house and all feature classic flourishes and atmospheric decor. During the day you can wander amongst the oak trees and imagine what life would have been like all those years ago.

  • Delectable evening and breakfast dining
  • Beautifully traditional decor
  • Read a book under the canopy of an oak
  • Impressive Greek Revival architecture

Good lunch experience

Morristown, Tennessee

We had a group of 8 and visited Madewood for lunch and a tour. I didn't realize it would be a private lunch just for our group, which was a nice surprise. The food was good and the tour was enjoyable. We learned Beyonce had filmed a music video here and the movie "The Beguiled" was also filmed here. The day we visited it was cold outside, so we did not have a chance to tour the grounds.

Four of us stayed here in the main house. Yes, the place is really old, but that’s what we came for. It felt like such a privilege to sleep in the four poster bed, eat breakfast and dinner at the grand dining table, sit (carefully) on the Beyoncé chair and Saunders about the place. A bit like sneaking behind the velvet ropes in s museum and actually using all the artifacts. Dinner and breakfast are served at set times because all guests dine together at one table in the dining room ( which is lovely and very social) This wouldn’t work if people arrived at different times. We thought it was very reasonably priced,too.
