Houmas House Plantation

Once you've visited Houmas House Plantation and Gardens in person, you'll know why it is called "The Crown Jewel of Louisiana's River Road." At one time during the 19th century, Houmas House farmed sugarcane on tens of thousands of acres, and became the largest producer of sugar in the country. In fact, this grand estate was so lavish that it was described by many as "The Sugar Palace." 

Houmas House Plantation

The mansion and grounds have been thoroughly restored and enhanced to reflect the opulent lifestyle and grandeur of the successful sugar barons who once lived in Houmas House. Guides in period dress offer visitors an entertaining glimpse into the resplendent world of southern plantation life. Inside, guests will find history reflected in the many antique furnishings and works of art that grace the home's 16 glorious rooms. Outside, visitors can stroll through 38 acres of breathtaking, lush gardens, which are replanted throughout the year to reflect the season. Indeed, the property is so stunning and romantic that it was voted the Number One Ceremony Location by the Professional Wedding Guild of South Louisiana.

Houmas House Plantation
Houmas House Plantation is also home to one of the "Top 20 Restaurants in America."  Now boasting three restaurants, guests can have a fine dining experience at Latil’s Landing located in the original house from 1775.  Our newest restaurant, The Carriage House, features an elegant formal dining room with a contemporary progressive menu that puts a twist on traditional Louisiana cuisine. And lunch at Café Burnside is always a treat with over-stuffed po boys, and classic seafood entrees. 

The latest addition of the Inn at Houmas House completes this plantation destination, making it the most extensive experience of all the plantations along the Great River Road.  Twenty-one private cottages nestled along an alley of oaks creates a serene environment, perfect for a romantic getaway. Each room is complete with porcelain bathrooms, old world furniture and a private porch. Just steps from the mighty Mississippi River, you’ll have front row seats to watch the sun rise or set. 

Visitors are sure to find a unique keepsake or the perfect gift for any occasion by browsing the plantation's 8,000 square foot gift shop.

Houmas House offers visitors much more than a tour of a plantation home. Here, guests feel transported back to a time of antebellum, Southern splendor. The owner invites you to slow down and enjoy a leisurely time here. Sip a refreshing Mint Julep. And experience the South the way it was meant to be, at Houmas House Plantation and Gardens.
