    Beautiful homes!

    At Oak Alley when you arrive, there is plenty of parking in their gravel parking lot. The grounds are massive and covered with 500+ year old trees. Check in is right inside the gate and then you take a short walk to the house. You are not allowed to take pictures of the inside of the house but you can of the grounds and outside on the veranda. The first part of our tour with Allison was downstairs. Each room is beautifully decorated with period furniture. The second part of the tour is upstairs. If you cannot climb the stairs they do have a media room for people to watch a video about the second part of the tour. When the tour is over, they lead you outside. There is a small bar where you can purchase mint julips or other tasty beverages. They also have a restaurant, bar and gift shop on... read more

    Beautiful homes, wonderful guides and great buffet

    Decided to give these two plantations a visit while I was in the area. We went to San Francisco first as we purchased the lunch buffet at Houmas House with our entry. Walking up the home is so pretty and has such vibrant colors. The guide greeted us warmly adn made us feel quite welcome. Walking through it was interesting to learn about the floors and why they were built the way they were. I wish more of the front gardens had been salvaged from the flooding. The hand painted ceilings and decorative painting to the wood moldings was absolutely exquisite! The top floor of the home was very nice and it was a great touch to get to exit from the main, front stairs. The property had some slave homes you were able to self tour and some pretty trees with nice photo spots. ... read more

    I enjoyed the trip.

    I loved the environment at Houmas House, I was a little taken back by the San Francisco House, but the tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgable.

    Beautiful Plantation homes!

    So happy that I chose to visit these 2 plantation homes. They were both great in their own way. San Francisco just had a renovation where the hand painted ceilings(among other things) were redone and they were beautiful! Houmas House was stunning with its beautiful grounds. The guide was quite entertaining and the lunch there was perfect. I plan on going back to both of these properties next time I am in the area!
