I live here,so I haven't bothered much with accommodations in New Orleans.I did have a pleasant experience at Oak Alley,though.It is an old southern plantation house that is quite lovely and it is easy to set up a trip there through a travel agent or concierge.Make reservations in advance.They have wonderful little cottages,decorated in the style of the 1800's.I stayed around Christmas whe the house is decorated for the holidays.There was a nice buffet,followed by a tradtional bonfire on the missippi River and carolling.

Oak Alley Plantation built in 1839 in Greek Revial. Famous for its alley of 28 evenly spaced oak trees. 28 Doric columns, eight feet in circumference, surrounds the home.

It was great to get out of the city and see the gorgeous Louisiana countryside. I vow to go again and see the many other plantations in the region, and this time maybe I'll check out accomodations at the Oak Alley Plantation bed and breakfast!

Oak Alley (and Laura)

by grandmaR

Vacherie is located in St. James Parish within the Plantation Country Region west of New Orleans between Donaldsonville and Luling along Highway 18 on the banks of the Mississippi River near Lac de Allemands.

Vacherie is part of the New Orleans, Louisiana metro area.

Tbere are three major plantations here - Oak Alley (pictured above and in the travelogues), Evergreen and Laura.

Laura is a Creole Plantation kind of next door on The Great River Road to Oak Alley, and built earlier (1805) and restored to same period.

NOTE: A fire destroyed much of the main house in 2004, however the plantation is still on tours, which take in the out buildings and the story of the rebuilding process

Visit of plantations

by GUYON

What are the former plantations which can be visited (name & location) ?
In which can we lodge ?

Thanks

Re: Visit of plantations

by tompt

A plantation that is still working and has a lot of restored buildings from the old times is Frogmore. We really enjoyed the tour there.

Or are you looking for plantation houses to lodge in?

Re: Visit of plantations

We did not stay at a plantation so no first hand info, but check the website of the Louisiana travel bureau:
http://www.louisianatravel.com/where_to_stay/
There are some plantations in there like this one:

Still think you have to visit Frogmore:

Re: Visit of plantations

There are plantations all over Louisiana, but the two main areas where they are concentrated are along the Great River Road (Hwy 18) and around St. Francisville (north of Baton Rouge, probably no more than 3 hours by car from New Orleans). Warning: Not all plantations are big mansions with white columns like Tara in Gone with the Wind -some are small cottages, and some are built in different architectural styles.

Type "River Road plantations" or "St. Francisville plantations" on Google for more information and pictures of specific plantations. I've never stayed overnight at any plantation, although I know some do offer this option.

Of the River Road plantations, Nottoway and Laura are common destinations for tour groups on day trips from New Orleans, partly because they are close to NO. Laura is rather small, while Nottoway is huge (and ugly!).

The River Road plantation which I consider a "must-see" is Oak Alley. This is the most famous plantation of all, the one pictured on innumerable travel posters, brochures, and book covers, the one with the columned house at the end of that incredible "allee" of 200-plus year old oak trees.

Around St. Francisville, Rosedown Plantation is a good one to visit - the house is large but gracefully proportioned, has that classic "Tara" look, the interior is meticulously restored with antique furnishings, and the gardens are beautiful (garden design inspired by Versailles!).

By the way, if you are in south Louisiana, you will not be that far from Natchez, Mississippi, another area well-known for its numerous plantations and ante-bellum homes.
