The Madewood Plantation House invites guests to feel as if they are attending a gracious Louisiana antebellum house party. This National Historic Landmark is a splendid mansion once part of a sugar cane plantation, just 75 miles outside of New Orleans. With eight lovely bedrooms, located in the Main House and Charlet House annex, this is a sublimely intimate holiday experience for those who simply want to enjoy the pleasures of fine Louisianan hospitality. Gather in the elegant library for a wine and cheese reception each evening, then enjoy a relaxed candlelight dinner, replete with Southern specials such as chicken and andouille gumbo, Cajun shrimp pie, smothered green beans and homemade bread pudding or pecan pie. Swap stories in the spacious parlor over a brandy, then retire to your private quarters for a night well slept.
The plantation is ideal for exploring some of the most vibrant destinations in the American South, beginning right on the property with a tour of the mansion itself. Madewood Plantation House is one of the largest of its kind in all of Louisiana, and as a guest you are invited to make its rich history your very own. From a day spent reading under the genteel oaks or playing a leisurely game of croquet on the lawn, you are sure to discover the true definition of Southern comfort.
