We stayed here for three nights early in November in Cottage No 6. We found the cottage to have every convenience we needed and a kettle was a real delight for a decent cup of tea. The accommodation was very comfortable and extremely quiet. It was nice to wander the site at the end of the day when all the...

If you're interested in see the plantation, I would suggest renting a car. We found the trip rather rushed as we were on a tight deadline to get back to our shuttle. The area is beautiful - amazing trees, the house has been nicely restored and there are a number of former slave quarters to look at as well. However,...

This place is a must-see while in the NOLA vicinity. It is well kept and one of the most beautiful plantations around. Don't miss it. People come from far and wide to see what life once was like on the river plantations.

We only had 2 days in Louisiana and had to pack as many touristy things into those days as possible. Going to a plantation wasn't in my original plans but my wife really wanted to go so we know how that story goes. First the drive across the countryside was beautiful, Louisiana is one of a kind for its landscape....

We visited Oak Alley whilst staying in New Orleans and it really is worth the drive. The house is stunningly beautiful and the restored slave quarters exhibit is extremely well put together. Very interesting, showing the opposite ends of life on the plantation.That of the slave owners and the slaves. From extreme privilege to an existence so terrible it is...

What a special place. We visited from our tour bus and had a guide take a group round this beautiful house. Lovely avenue of oak trees. Various cottages in the grounds, reconstructed cabins, gift shop and restaurant all very well presented. I would recommend a longer visit that we had, to do it justice.

An insightful look into the southern plantation lifestyle, set in beautiful parkland with avenues lined with 200 year old oak trees, this homestead beautifully and respectively restored. Well worth a visit.

We only got to stay one night but loved it and we will be back. We loved the fact that we had our own cottage and could come and go as we liked. You even get to walk around the grounds at night and "ghost hunt" if you like. It was so nice and relaxing and the staff was wonderful....

We did stay only for 1 night, travelled from New Orleans on purpose just to have an experience of staying at one of the Great River Plantations and we were not disappointed.

If Gone With the Wind is your thing - then the grand opulence of the Oak Alley Big House and its lush grounds fits the bill. The guides wear crinoline dresses- ours was really interesting and let the plantation house and its history be the star. Hopefully they will soon complete their plans to make the slave experience a more...

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
