We stayed for a weekend in one of the cottages. The rooms where huge and very comfortable. The restaurant food was great. Everyone was very friendly.The air conditioning was superb! Better that any other hotel I've stayed. The breakfast buffet was a bit bland though. Didn't see any ghosts!
I have gone to most of the plantations in the New Orleans/Baton Rouge area and this one is my favorite. That's not really a knock on the others who are all worth visiting for different reasons. I have never been disappointed in any of the plantation tours. What makes this one stand out is not so much the building itself, but everything that is available on the grounds. The restaurant onsite is very good and not unreasonably priced. You can walk across the street and stand on the levee and look at the Mississippi River. The one thing I did not do on this trip but hope to do in the future is to spend a night in one of the rooms in the main house. Most of the other plantations do not offer this ability.
The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and friendly and every staff member we came in contact with was cheerful. It's a bit of a drive from New Orleans, but it's worth it and can be paired with one or two other plantation tours that are in the general vicinity.
I'm headed to New Orleans to meet friends this weekend and stumbled onto this Southern Gem! A beautiful plantation built from 1857-1859. They've done a great job maintaining the original charm while adding modern conveniences. If you like Southern Charm you'll love this plantation just steps from the Mighty Mississippi River.
We took a two-hour tour of Nottoway Plantation last week. My husband and I had limited time in Louisiana, and we were staying for a few days near Baton Rouge. I really wanted to tour the plantation homes on the river road, but we didn't have time to go all the way down to Oak Alley and the others near there. We selected Nottoway because it is on the north end of the great river road. We were not disappointed! Our tour guide was charming and you could tell he absolutely loved the house, the area and the history of the Randolph family. We could have listened to him all day. (I can't remember his name--was it Richard?). Anyway, we loved it. I highly recommend it.
My best friend and I spent the night in the main house of Nottoway. From the time we arrived the staff was unbelievably helpful, cheerful, professional, and welcoming. Our rooms were HUGE ... furnished with beautiful antiques of the period and with modern bathrooms and A/C. We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the food was delicious! There was a wedding in the gardens while we were there and we got to "eavesdrop" on it. If you're doing a tour of the River Road plantations, this is a "must-stay" place. An added bonus - breakfast and house tour are included in the room rate.
