Oak Alley Plantation is included in “The Top 50 Most Beautiful Scenic Places in the U.S.” by one website and “Top 16 Most Photogenic Places in the South” by another. When you spend the night in one of the cottages at Oak Alley, you then have the privilege of roaming the secure grounds and photographing to your heart’s content at sunset, at night, and in the early morning. Sitting midway between New Orleans and Baton Rouge on the Great River Road running parallel to the Mississippi River, Oak Alley has a location to suit many occasions.
Centuries-old cottages lend authenticity to the setting
Each cottage includes free Wi-Fi, board games, central heat and air, microwave, refrigerator and Tempur-pedic mattresses.
Dinner at your cottage
If you are spending more than one night, you might choose to take advantage of Oak Alley’s proximity to New Orleans or Baton Rouge for dinner and entertainment. There are hundreds of options in both cities, but if you are unfamiliar with the area, then Galatoire’s Bistro is a lovely French restaurant in Baton Rouge, and Gumbo Shop is very popular in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Don't leave without breakfast.
You’ll be able to enjoy an unhurried start to your day before heading out to tour other plantations, particularly Laura Plantation and St. Joseph Plantation, which are the closest.
Relaxation, comfort and an exceptional setting
The cottages at Oak Alley Plantation provide a perfect way to truly get away from stress, hurry, crowded highways and a frantic life. Allow yourself this experience to renew your energy or to have uninterrupted time with your spouse, your family or your friends. The beds are comfortable, the amenities are plentiful, and breakfast is delightful. Maybe you will return home as relaxed as the Spanish moss draped in the towering live oak trees.
