The hotel

Known as the Crown Jewel of Louisiana’s River Road, Inn at Houmas House, Plantation Country is an outstanding antebellum estate, bursting with southern charm. The set location of many a film and TV show, actors such as Bette Davis and Chevy Chase have filmed here, so it may well feel more than familiar to you!

The dramatic and inviting Fountain Courtyard is another popular gathering place for guests. Dining at Houmas House is not just a treat, it’s an experience.

We went on a tour of the mansion and it was absolutely gorgeous! The owner and general manager have done a great job in restoring and maintaining this beautiful property.

This was one of the most beautiful plantations we have visited. Amazingly manicured gardens and lovely property overall. It was like visiting a botanical garden. We stayed here for the night and loved our overnight visit. Best hotel stay in a long time! We spent more than an hour after breakfast walking the grounds and taking pictures. Gorgeous.

The tour was small and paced well for the patrons. The guide was knowledgeable and courteous; although he spoke a bit too quickly sometimes.
