A bit pricey

los angeles

We stopped here for lunch on our tour because there was no other options within 8-10 miles. It was a bit pricey for what was offered but the food was decent and the service was ok. There’s a shop next door to purchase small snacks to go.

Incredible Night in a Cottage! A Magical Experience!


We booked a cottage at the plantation for one night and it was one of the best moments of our trip. The plantation is only about one hour from New Orleans so fit into our trip perfectly. The cottage (5b) was super cute and incredibly clean. Antique furniture was everywhere but the facilities very modern. The mattress was Tempurpedic (nice) and the air conditioning worked very well (thank goodness as temps were in the mid 40's - Celsius). There were also large ceiling fans inside as well as on the screened porch. There was no one next door that night so we had the porch to ourselves. Lots of cute tiny gekkos ran up the porch screen. From the get go, staff were super welcoming. The property is beautiful and large so it was nice that someone hopped in a golf cart and directed our car to the cottage. Also received a cold beverage to welcome us which was great. The plantation is not close to restaurants but does offer a full service restaurant and snack counter that are open during the day. Upon reserving, we were notified that the food facilities would be closed at night (very helpful to know this in advance) and decided to take advantage of the "order in" option from a menu crafted by the plantation chef. We were SO glad we did this. The food and drink were outstanding. Probably the best pecan pie we've ever tasted! Every detail was included and we were impressed. They bring your order right to your room. Each element of our dishes (and drinks) was packed separately right down to the mint for our mint juleps. We arrived a bit earlier than check in time and met the person arranging our table for dinner. She laid out all the cutlery, glasses, etc. which was nice and put all our food and drink into the fridge. Everything you need for a comfortable night's stay is in the cottage. The bathroom is fully stocked - soaps, lotions, plenty of towels. It was spotless. Once the grounds close, as a guest you're welcome to roam the property which we did. Very cool to see the grounds at night. There are tours of the main house during the day, so if you haven't seen it it's worth the tour. All in all, an incredible experience and one we would definitely do again. It was really hard to leave the plantation!
