Over Oak Alley Plantation
Nergens anders in het zuiden vindt u zo'n spectaculaire omgeving! De honderden meters lange entree van de plantage met haar gigantische eiken, vermoedelijk bijna 300 jaar oud (!), vormt een indrukwekkende laan die leidt naar het klassieke antebellum plantagehuis in Griekse bouwstijl. Dit huis is open voor bezichtiging, onder leiding van in traditionele outfit geklede gidsen. Op het terrein bevinden zich tevens enkele cottages, die nu dienst doen als accommodatie. Ze zijn zeer ruim, comfortabel en uitgerust met centrale airconditioning, koffiezetapparaat en natuurlijk zaken als een koelkast en draadloos internet. U kunt ontspannen wandelingen maken over de weelderige gronden of op de oever van de machtige Mississippi uitkijken naar passerende schepen. Een uitgebreid 'country-breakfast' is inbegrepen.

"Oak Alley See the Main House"
A day to relax, I arrived just at noon and discovered there is a cafe. Which provided a great little lunch, and a place to sit and relax. After which i got the grand tour of the main house. What a great old home and what I expected as a place to visit and experienceva little history. This home will not disapoint. Relax enjoy the day and see the great old Oak trees which streched down to the river.
"Amazing overnight stay in new cottages"
This was a surprise overnight stay for me. I was in New Orleans and my husband was able to join me for a couple of days. We went from New Orleans to Vacherie in about 45 minutes. A very easy and lovely drive. Oak Alley Plantation has 9 cabins that are available for overnight stays. We stayed in Cabin 8 and were told it was less than a year old. A fantastic cottage! You enter through a screened porch, to the living area that has a big screen TV above a gas fireplace. The bedroom area was immediately adjacent to the living area, no doors separate these two areas, but if you're just a couple, it's not a problem. Straight back is a kitchen with the bathroom directly off the kitchen area. The toilet is in it's own room. The whole unit is air-conditioned, especially nice since it was a very warm and humid evening. There are not restaurant facilities on site for dinner, so we ordered dinner (extra charge) from the on site restaurant and it was in our refrigerator when we arrived. Instructions for heating up the meal were left with the microwavable containers in the refrigerator. Our table was already set for the two of us. Dinner was wonderful...even though it had to be heated in the microwave. Salad, main course (mine was Gumbo, hubby's was 4 cheese pasta with chicken) and dessert were all great. The shower (no tub in this cottage) was large enough to entertain in! Wonderful space. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were top of the line. Hummingbird feeders outside the screened porch the following morning had Hummingbirds darting back and forth, very nice. The area the cabins are located in is behind the Oak Alley Plantation and very quiet. We were told by the young lady who took us to our cabin that we had the 'run of the plantation' since we were overnight guests. We were also told to keep our key with us, since security is on site and they would need to see the key or they'd have to escort us off the property. We arrived after 7pm, and had to go to the kiosk just off the main parking lot to sign in and get our key. Very easy to do, even though I had some anxiety about how to pick up our key and get to our room. Breakfast the following morning was great, included with your overnight stay and was served in the on site restaurant. We walked the grounds the following morning and took a tour of the house. The price for the tour of the house is not included in the rental price for the cottage, but was well worth the cost.
Oak Alley is an iconic destination along the Mississippi River. It offers a chance to learn a bit about our history and just for a moment think you are there in time. There are multiple opportunities for interesting photography among the oaks and the house.
"Unique old south atmosphere, nice cottages but service and breakfast could be improved"
The hotel is composed of a dozen of charming wood cottages not far from Mississippi river. The cottage are well equipped and distant from one another so you will enjoy peace and quietness. Cottages are decorated like back in the 20â€™s but with all modern comfort. You can also enjoy a night walk in the plantation and around the main house in a very romantic atmosphere. However, breakfast is really disappointing with good quality meals but served in small quantities and with too little choice. This is really too bad otherwise the Oak Alley Plantation could be a kind of homerun when stopping at Vacherie.
"Not to be missed-amazing"
This property is awaking. Thanks to the generosity of the last owner is not a non profit organisation which are going to preserve the house. You start with the reconstructed slave quarters and find out about their hard life on the plantation. You then go to the house where every half hour there is a guided tour. The inside had many original features and our gourde was excellent and dressed the part. When she took us onto the balcony the view takes your breath away. The line of Oak Trees is just amazing. We on only had tours hours and just got everything done in this time. If you love history this is a visit you can't miss out on.
