Live a little in the past at the Historic Plantation home — an Acadian-style cottage built on a massive 4.5 acre (18210.9 sq. m.) tract of land and surrounded by oaks and formal gardens on the grounds of Orange Grove Plantation. This gated property was originally built in 1840 and then restored in the 1970s. The cottage features hardwood floors, a master suite, one full bath, kitchen and living area with a fireplace on the first floor, a divided loft with two single beds on the second floor, and a washer and dryer. It can host up to eight guests at a time. There is also a pond stocked with trophy bass to enjoy catch and release fishing on the waterfront gazebo just outside.
