“Great Guides”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

I recommend trying several plantation tours if you have time. They each have their own unique character. This tour was not crowded and had a very good guide.

“Painted Lady!”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Loved this house and saw 3 others on this visit to LA. Original painting on walls, ceilings and floors show that unique painting is not something new to design! How it has survived the time and dampness in LA is a miracle. Guide did not rush through the tour and pointed out a lot of interesting stories not heard at the other plantation tours. It was definitly a unique home "on the river".

“interesting tour”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

This house isn't as grand as Houmas House or Oak Alley but still very interesting in it's own way. This tour was the first time I had seen a shower. It also has 1 of 5 of the first "office chairs". The tour guide was very interesting and funny. It is in a bad location but I am thankful that the people from Marathon Oil saved and have used a lot of money to restore and maintain it. It's such a same that so many of the plantation houses are just falling to the ground.
