My wife and I were very happy with our two night stay in cottage #4 at Oak Alley Plantation. We made this our base while touring the Louisiana Plantation Country, and were glad that we did. The staff was very hospitable, greeted us with cups of lemonade, and had taken the trouble to replace the feather pillows in our cottage...

We drove from Houston to Oak Alley Plantation (after a long haul flight from Australia). After several stops, and getting lost (we went the wrong way at Baton Rouge (I blame the GPS), we arrived at about midnight and were very tired. We had previously ordered dinner (we thought we would arrive at about 8.30pm). Dinner was waiting for us...

Oak Alley should ask guests to respect the setting they're stepping into before they enter. Not everyone goes on plantation tours for the same reasons. While I do respect that, those who run this place should make a point of requesting visitors to be mindful of the other guests who may have hearts, souls, and feelings. The tourists are what...

We stayed two nights at Oak Alley. It was a true highlight of our trip to the region. Grounds are glorious and service on arrival was first rate. Warm, friendly, a lemonade and a golf cart escort to check us into our wonderful two bedroom cottage. A quick tour and then orientation to the area and very helpful dinner recommendations....

This was not only an authentic estate but, where original buildings such as the slave quarters had gone, they had been recreated to the original specifications. The tour was accompanied by a knowledgeable personal guide, dressed in period dress, which gave an invaluable insight into the lives and lifestyles of the original owners.

A morning visit to this gorgeous antebellum house and peaceful grounds. Excellent guides in period dress all add to the atmosphere of this wonderful building. What a contrast to visit the slave quarters! Very sobering! A small restaurant and shop all add to a lovely visit.

We stayed in cottage 6 and found it very quaint and pleasant. Booking directly through their website was easy (we were organising our stay from overseas).

Staying overnight on the property is a great experience. The cabin was comfortable. The bed was good. The shower was good. You have to pay a separate fee to tour the plantation but you can take a late tour with a smaller group. You can wander the grounds.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nowhere else in the south will you find such a spectacular setting!The story of Oak Alley Plantation began with a vision, an alley of 28 oaks later mirrored by a manor with 28 columns. In the early 1700’s an unknown settler planted twenty-eight evenly spaced oak trees in two rows leading from his humble cottage toward the mighty Mississippi River. Over a decade later, an aristocrat by name of Jacques Telephores Roman lured his New Orleans socialite bride to leave her city live life, to achieve his dream of becoming a sugar king. In 1839, Jacques and Celina built this spectacular mansion, leaving the Roman legacy for us to enjoy today. Come and enjoy her beauty and dream of her rich past. Explore 25 acres of history and romance, regret and rebirth, tragedy and triumph. Enjoy a Mint Julep or refreshing lemonade while strolling these historic grounds and see the legacies left by the Romans, the Stewarts and those in between. Step back in antebellum elegance and tour the Big House with a guide in period dress. And witness the reconstructed slave quarters to understand the lives of the workers whose labor made plantation life and its luxuries possible. Visit the Civil War Interpretive Exhibit which consists of a commanding officer's tent, staffed most days by one of our three Civil War interpreters. These interpreters, along with our video kiosk, will allow visitors to understand one of the most crucial periods in this nation's history. Enjoy small group discussions with one of our interpreters who are available to answer your specific questions.Dine with us and savor flavorful Cajun & Creole dishes in our Restaurant or grab a light lunch or ice cream in our Café. Browse our impressive Gift Shop. Spend a tranquil evening in one of our 19th century old cottages. Even plan a wedding, corporate or special event. There is just so much to experience at Oak Alley!  ... more   less
