We only stayed one night for my birthday during March of 2016, however we wish it could have been 3+ nights! We we're driving from Shreveport, and before that Dallas/Ft Worth, to make it to Madewood. While we we're stuck in traffic south of Baton Rouge, we we're unsure if we would make it in time for the dinner, so we called the house and Angie gave us alternate driving directions and assured us we would make it on time (sure enough we did). Once we arrived, we were greeted by a fantastic employee who helped up take our luggage to our room. Once we got dressed for dinner, we met for wine and cheese in the parlor. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners of the plantation in the parlor! They were amazing to talk to. We expressed interest in meeting a 7th generation employee of the plantation, but unfortunately he wasn't there the only day we were in town. However, the owners told us we could find him at church less than a mile up the road! This to me demonstrates that the owners truly know and care about each employee. Near the end of our conversation, the second family staying the night at the house that night arrived. Coincidentally, they we're also from the Dallas / Fort Worth area, and through some connection, we had mutual friends! Once we made our way to dinner, the setting was BEAUTIFUL. The food was AMAZING and we devoured every bite. Truly some of the best food I've had in my lifetime, only made better by the scenery. Near the end of dinner, Angie, the wonderful housekeeper, surprised us with a red-velvet birthday cake for my birthday! We did not even mention it to her, I guess the owners told her and she took it upon herself to do this for us! It was one of those moments we will cherish forever. The next morning, the breakfast was TO DIE FOR! An authentic southern plantation breakfast. Fresh squeezed orange juice, buttery biscuits, and perfectly cooked grits. The room was amazingly authentic, and we would have been disappointed if it was too modern. We wanted to be taken back to the grandeur of the old south and this plantation did it for us! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
