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.

Overtall a good experience. Great house, beautiful furniture, excellent dinner. However the cleanliness of the room is questionable, especially around the toilet, dust on the shades, etc. The electrical installation is outdated: impossible to put the light on (string broken), safety is questionable. Breakfast is too heavy for European stomaches. Excellent welcome and service quality.

Angie is a very nice house keeper. The house is like a museum-plantation. It's very quiet and with many charms: decoration, furniture. The dinner and the breakfast at the large table shared by all the guests wee really nice. A little bit pricey. The only problem has been the difficulty to find the house since there are two parallel roads along the river. The house is on road 308, not on road 1. This is correctly indicated on the map.

Everything was perfect, and Angie was the perfect hostess and Alice the perfect chef when my girlfriend and I were there. I love Madewood and the whole experience of staying there. Angie went out of her way to make a very special treat for me that my fiancé arranged with her from afar. Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful house, good food and service. Room could have used a good airing out, sink drained poorly, a.c. not working well.

What a great getaway! My girlfriend and I spent the night at Madewood the day before Christmas Eve and it was one of the highlights of our holiday. The staff was friendly, the food was outstanding, and the room was gigantic. We also got to meet the owner Keith, who was generous with his time and shared some fascinating stories with us. I am doubly appreciative of the service we received: the staff had to really shift gears to accommodate us because of a huge filming event that took place at Madewood right before our arrival. We'll definitely be back!

We absolutely loved our stay. We were so lucky to be the only guests and have this amazing home all to ourselves. The home is beautiful, the staff friendly and welcoming, and our food was outstanding. I felt like Scarlett O'Hara for a night. It was such a treat, and a wonderful experience to have had. I can't recommend this enough. You will not be disappointed.
