This was a sister trip and we loved Oak Alley! We stayed overnight in Cottage 4 and it was wonderful! The private screened in porch was enjoyable. The beds were so comfortable too.The walk to the plantation and restaurant was easy. (And probably the closest of all the cottages!) Breakfast was delicious and plenty of choices. Our tour guid I’d a good job of giving us a glimpse of plantation life. I couldn’t believe that some of the trees were over 200 years old! Great visit and highly recommend.
A dream come true
I have always wanted to visit Oak Alley Plantation and when it worked out that we could, we decided to go all in and make reservations for an overnight stay. So glad we did!!! We were is cabin 5B. It was quiet, very clean and it had a screen porch out front and a private deck out back. By staying on the property, guests were free to roam the grounds even after it was closed to the public for the night. Walking the front lane and seeing the house lit up, and the lights on the trees was amazing. Complimentary breakfast at the restaurant came with the stay. The staff was wonderful, very friendly. I highly recommend this experience! Thanks!
Wonderful cottage, excellent breakfast
We rented cottage #4 for 2 nights. This is one of the historic cottages, over 100 years old. We arrived around 6.30 p.m. Efficient and friendly check in. Dinner was in the fridge (everything was labeled, with instructions on how to reheat it), and even the table had been set. Cottage is lovely, and fitted our needs perfectly. It is spacious, private, and clean. Shower stall is the biggest I have ever seen in my life. I did not expect housekeeping during our short stay with COVID19 going on, but it was a really nice surprise that here at Oak Alley they do come in. Included in the price of your stay is a "country breakfast". Basically you can order anything from the breakfast menu. Breakfast is served in restaurant and it was EXCELLENT. Highly recommend staying at Oak Alley!
An night at the Plantation
We booked the Milk Shed for our party of 4. What a treat! Beautiful rooms, lovely bathrooms and balconies on which to sit and enjoy a drink. We ordered dinner and it was waiting for us when we arrived. We only had to heat it. Portions were large, ordered for 4, could have ordered for 3 and had ample. Desserts were fabulous, especially the cheesecake. We wandered the grounds at night and had the company of the local cat. Didn't talk much, didn't want to be petted, but followed us wherever we went. Breakfast the next morning in the cafe was also very good. Had an mid-morning tour of the house which was interesting. Watched a couple of the short movies in the displays beside the house, which again were interesting. This was our 3rd time to Oak Alley, first time overnight. Well worth the return visit and what a great place to stay.
Magnificent grounds, immaculate and spacious cottages, with an excellent breakfast and gift shop. Our two-night stay at the inn was the highlight of our trip. The plantation mansion tour was rushed and artificial, never really delving into the inhumanity of slavery. However, we met two outstanding staff in one of the slave cabins, which offset the formal tour. Wish we could remember their names- a black woman who is a historian and genealogist and a young white man. Their knowledge and insights were worth the price of admission.
