Inn at Houmas House

New Orleans, Louisiana

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! When you’re not sightseeing, spend some time at leisure in the gardens, home to an ancient oak alley and year-round blooms. 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. Latil’s Landing Restaurant in the French House is over 230 years old with original beamed ceilings, cypress mantels, wood burning fireplaces and original wood floors. Feast on gourmet cuisine served upon Limoge china, soaking up the grand atmosphere that prevails. For less formal meals there is Cafe Burnside, serving everything from healthy salads and fried oyster po-boys to filet mignon, washed down with a mint julep perhaps or a glass of wine served from the estates very own wine cellars.

The gardens and house tour transport you back into a much simpler time. What a relaxing day we had strolling through the well-kept gardens, eating a light lunch, having a drink at the unique Turtle bar, and of course learning so much of the regions history during our tour of the home! Thank you so very much for sharing your estate with us! 😊

The walls are very thin at the inn so I spent the rest of the hearing my other neighbor snore. When I shared my experience with staff I was told it was due to a wedding party staying there I’m a paying guest and should not have be subjected to such a poor experience. Read less

Had a tour of the mansion and plantation. Our tour guide was informative, full of southern charm and grace. She made the tour fun and like a step back in time. The gardens were beautiful but most impressive were the 300-600 year oak trees. They were HUGE and Majestic. This tour made our trip to the New Orleans area complete.

We booked this tour with Grayline at the French Quarter location. Excellent staff. There were only 5 of us on the motor coach out to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens! The house and the grounds are gorgeous. We had visited several other plantations on a previous visit to New Orleans. Houmas House is top notch. I must have taken 100’s of pictures… Read more
