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.

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.

We decided to get away on short notice. My fiancee' found the bed and breakfast online and we were able to book it quickly. Everything exceeded my expectations. If you are expecting to step back in time, this is the place for you. If you want something that has been remodeled and updated you need to look at another place. It did offer cooling and heating so please don't misunderstand, it does have some modern convineces but overall the feel is antebellum. The hostess was great and the food was excellent.

Staying at Madewood was exceptional. I really felt at home and relaxed there. The grounds and home are beautiful and you are free to explore at your leisure. It took me back in history and time. The food was delicious. A great experience in a plantation home Angie does a fabulous job. For us it was a great welcome to La.
