The orientation video was interesting and the tour was good. The guide had a lot of enthusiasm. The house and its story were fascinating. The gardens very pretty. If you are into history of the south and old homes, then this is for you.

This was a nice place, but not really much of a show case. The grounds were very nice, but small. It had a good view of the Bayou Teche.

The house and grounds are amazing but we were disappointed in the way our tour guide rushed through the tour. If you visit, make sure they don't have any venues booked in the gardnes. Overall she did a good job but feel she rushed us...More

This is an amazing, beautiful house built in the 1830s. They take you on tour after a quick introductory video and show you the entire house. The gardens are wonderful, and there is so much history in this house. We loved hearing about Mary and...More

Awesome tour. Our tour guide Audrey was very well versed on the history of the mansion. We learned so much about the history of the Civil War and its impact on the local people.

The first tour starts around 9 or 9:30 am and the last tour starts about 4:15. However you would want to go early enough to have plenty of time to look around the ground on your own.
