“Absolutely amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Amazing place to visit. The alley made of oaks is absolutely beautiful. The people are so welcoming. My tour guide was a young girl named Ashley and she did outstanding. She told about the history of the house and land. Also the history on the families that owned the home. The tour was definately my favorite part next to the pictures I was able to capture.

“An interesting site but not the best in the area.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

The tour of the main house felt a little restricted after our visit to Houmus House. It is however still a lovely place to visit and the ground are beautiful. Have lunch in the restaurant the food is wonderful.

“Valentine's dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed overnight on Valentine's last year. We arrived before check-in time so we used that time to tour the plantation. The house and grounds are beautiful and the mint juleps are so refreshing. We stayed in cottage 3. The cottage is comfortable and has a big, modern bathroom and nice deck on the back. The Valentine's dinner was romantic. The food was just ok but the whole experience was great. A wonderful way to spend Valentine's day/night.

“Well worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

We really enjoyed our visit to this plantation, the tour guide was excellent in giving us the history of the plantation and the people who lived here. We did a combo tour Oak alley and of Laura , which in my opinion gives you a great understanding of what it was truly like for the creole and the americans who owned these plantations

“Excellent place to visit, nice and peaceful atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

The Oak Alley Plantation visit will bring you back a few years ago and will make you feel the "old" plantation atmosphere. It is green, very well presented and peaceful. Really worth the trip!
