Oak Alley Plantation

Stay in the grounds of a plantation mansion

The Oak Alley Plantation is a remainder of the Old South’s golden age: a stunning colonnaded mansion set in beautiful gardens edged by the Mississippi River. Stay in a quaint and authentic cottage on the grounds of the plantation house and let yourself imagine what life would have been like here in the 1800’s. Stroll through the beautiful landscaped gardens, admire the 1830’s architecture of the house and watch the Mississippi roll on by as you soak up the old-world atmosphere. With in-room dining options and a fresh country breakfast for all cottage guests, this plantation is the ideal place for those seeking an atmospheric Old South experience.

If you have plans to visit New Orleans, set aside two days to spend at Oak Alley Plantation. It is still planted with Sugar Cane, which was the largest crop in Lousiana at one time. The mansion is lovingly restored but the best part of the trip is a night's stay in the cottages. They are beautifully appointed, very private and extremely comfortable. Dinner can be delivered to your cottage for you to warm at your convenience. What a treat! Breakfast is included in your room price and the food is very good!

The house tour isn’t worth the price of admission. It’s rushed, you’re not able to see the entire house and it’s very loud as there are other tours going on around you. The housekeeping staff for the cottages are a joke. Their boss, Melissa, doesn’t allow her staff enough time to properly clean the cottages. Two particular employees she calls Hekyl & Jekyl don’t even clean at all when left unsupervised. The restaurant hours aren’t accommodating for overnight guests. The grounds themselves are the only thing worth seeing.
