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.

Our Madewood Stay

4.0 on October 16, 2014

Although we got off to a slow start with Angie, things did improve drastically by dinner time. She took a lot of time to answer all of our questions, and she served a superb dinner and breakfast. We loved our first-floor bedroom; it was so comfortable and beautifully decorated.


Great End to Our Vacation

4.0 on October 14, 2014

We spent a week prior in New Orleans, and decided we'd like to wrap up our stay at Madewood Plantation House with a relaxing evening/morning. We enjoyed it! The wine and cheese reception was fun - we got to know the other guests fairly well. Then, the dinner we were served was fantastic! Coffee and/or brandy was served after dinner in the parlor where we continued our conversation(s). Breakfast was served in the morning and did not disappoint. We spent time that morning exploring the grounds and then travelled home. We'd highly recommend staying here!


Special night...

We had the pleasure of staying at Madewood last week. What a great time we had. The service and food was fantastic! We actually had the entire plantation home to ourselves because we had went mid week and it was quiet. We will recommend it to our friends. I plan to one day take my kids. Stay and enjoy!


SUPERB!!!

If there was a 6th star that would be my rating. If you miss the opportunity to stay and enjoy this Great plantation it will be a great loss for you, The rooms and food are excellent. The staff are professional in every respect. This is what the old South stood for in respect to hospitality. It was my wife's 70th birthday and boy was she happy. We will go back!!!! Jeff & Glenda


Magnificent

The first time I came to Madewood was on 26 September 1989. Now I wanted to introduce my son to this Plantation House. Together we appreciated the comfort and hospitality of Madewood and also we both noted that Madewood had very much conserved its character as an original Plantation House.


A True Plantation Feel

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.
