Houmas House Plantation with Transportation from The French Quarter


Experience the peaceful serenity and striking beauty of this historic mansion and gardens, unlike any other plantation home in the South. Travel back in time to the 1800s as a local guide takes guests on a journey through the Houmas Mansion, where visitors will view original artwork, rare antiques, and original pieces from the 1830s. Learn how a succession of owners, the sugarcane business and the Mississippi River grew this modest manor house into the grand estate it is today. Situated on River Road between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, this treasure of time offers guests glimpses into life on a plantation. Relax as guests explore at a leisurely pace the 38 breathtaking acres of lush, manicured gardens mixed with various water features, walking paths, and sitting nooks throughout. Voted Best Historic Mansion by USA Today. Tasty Louisiana cuisine is featured at Café Burnside; order the buffet or a la carte. (Optional; cost not included in the tour price.) Enjoy a refreshing mint julep in the Turtle Bar, the only bar of its kind in the country. The gift shop is a perfect place for memories ranging from cookbooks to high-end gifts and art.

Thank you Houmas

They had me at "original artifacts." I love anything to do with ancestry, heritage, history of any city. Plus, scenery was gorgeous. We went last week of September and it was very humid/hot. Grey Line Tours offered a complimentary beverage [I recommend the mint julep].
