We took a tour today of Madewood and it was charming and beautiful. It's so nice to see an old plantation home back to its former glory. It was especially neat for me as this is a home was purchased by my descendants in the 1800's. Special thanks to the Marshall family who purchased it in the 1960's and restored... More

Coming from the North, we came with eyes wide open. We listened; experienced; and learned. The three people we met, each contributed their take of life on the plantation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was an experience like no other, we were not disappointed. Keith, the owner is a very kind and knowledgeable man, with intelligence, wit and southern... More

Madewood is one of the largest plantations in Louisiana. It is a bed and breakfast that also gives tours. We did not stay there, but the tour was very interesting. T he furnishings of the house and style are very rich in beauty and history. It is our hobby to visit antebellum plantations and I will say, Madewood is a... More

A wonderful experience as this plantation home is beautiful with priceless antiques and a lovely staff. This home takes you back in time which is such a blessing. We attended a wedding reception and stayed in the Mansion bedroom. The food was delicious southern food. I am so grateful to Mr. Keith Marshall for maintaining this beautiful piece of history.

We went for a tour of Madewood and lunch on a tour from the Acadian Cultural Center after hearing how beautiful Madewood is. I was shocked right away that we couldn't even enter (and we WERE locked out) without walking over and around many, many fire ant hills. That and the uneven ground is dangerous, especially for people from out... More

I've been scheming to get back to the NO/Baton Rouge area just to have op for even one night at Madewood. A dreamy experience, with owners/staff making our days there a magical experience. No detail overlooked. Very upscale, but very unstuffy. Friends have been there since, and verify it is remains as perfect an experience as you'd even want.

The complete package was nice. We stayed in the Mystery Ladies room. We enjoyed our formal dinner and met some wonderful people that we hope to stay in touch with. We also had a nice breakfast in the morning. I liked meeting Warren who works there and is 6th generation. He was born on the plantation and at age 14... More

As a great great great grandaughter of Thomas Pugh, it was a uniquely special and humbling experience for me and my two adult children to spend a night at Madewood last week. Words fail me in trying to describe what it was like to walk where my ancestors walked and to reflect on what life must have been like for... More
