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.

An night at the Plantation

Calgary, Canada

We booked the Milk Shed for our party of 4. What a treat! Beautiful rooms, lovely bathrooms and balconies on which to sit and enjoy a drink. We ordered dinner and it was waiting for us when we arrived. We only had to heat it. Portions were large, ordered for 4, could have ordered for 3 and had ample. Desserts were fabulous, especially the cheesecake. We wandered the grounds at night and had the company of the local cat. Didn't talk much, didn't want to be petted, but followed us wherever we went. Breakfast the next morning in the cafe was also very good. Had an mid-morning tour of the house which was interesting. Watched a couple of the short movies in the displays beside the house, which again were interesting. This was our 3rd time to Oak Alley, first time overnight. Well worth the return visit and what a great place to stay.

Magnificent grounds, immaculate and spacious cottages, with an excellent breakfast and gift shop. Our two-night stay at the inn was the highlight of our trip. The plantation mansion tour was rushed and artificial, never really delving into the inhumanity of slavery. However, we met two outstanding staff in one of the slave cabins, which offset the formal tour. Wish we could remember their names- a black woman who is a historian and genealogist and a young white man. Their knowledge and insights were worth the price of admission.
