About

Madewood Plantation House, 75 miles northwest of New Orleans' French Quarter (65 miles from N.O. airport), is a gracious retreat where life slows down. This National Historic Landmark Greek Revival mansion, called the "temple in the sugar cane fields,," sits on 20 acres, with sprawling oaks. Its eight large bedrooms have canopied beds and antiques, but the atmosphere is more homey than formal. Choose an all-inclusive evening or visit local restaurants for a varied experience. Guests choosing the all-inclusive package gather for wine and cheese before sitting down together for a candlelight dinner of Southern Louisiana specialties. Afterwards, coffee is served in the parlor. Madewood has been featured in Travel and Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler. Tours,overnight accommodations & events are availalble with reservations only.

Celebration

4.8 on April 08, 2014

My husband and I stayed at Madewood Plantation to celebrate selling our house. I have seen Madewood Plantation on the website for years and always wanted to stay. It was a wonderful experience. The staff was great, polite and attentive, the food was excellent and the room was wonderful. We laughed the next morning about how high the bed was and my husband having to give me a hand to pull me in. We also enjoyed sitting on the balcony that night after dinner. And it was really a nice touch when the staff delivered orange juice to our room before we even got out of bed. I am really glad I got to finally make it to Madewood.


Check this off my bucket list

Felt grateful to Keith, the owner, for sharing his beautiful plantation home with us. A very memorable experience. Loved sitting on the second floor deck and enjoying our morning coffee.
