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.

We than had a late lunch in the Carriage House... AMAZING food! Great staff, everyone full of smiles, so accommodating. I will definitely make this visit again SOON! Read less

If you or anyone is thinking about checking out these historical homes on River Road you HAVE to visit Houmas House. Read less

This was my second visit to the Houmas house. I was not disappointed. All the flowers were in full bloom .The guided tour was spot on and the guide full of information. The Plantation home is beautiful and is air conditioned, so that is nice in the Louisiana heat. It was a great day. We had lunch at the plantation. It was just a perfect day!

My daughter and I toured the grounds and house. The grounds are just beautiful and tranquil. The tour of the house was very informative. The house was beautiful. I could just imagine myself there in the day.

Great Tour, Friendly Staff, Delicious Food in Restaurants, Beautiful Garden. Be sure to have enough time to see it all ...Tour is about an hour, It takes another Hour or more to tour the Gardens, and you don't want to miss the walk on the Bridge to the River. Great Day!
