We did the entire circuit of Plantations this trip, and Houmas House was by FAR the best. Everything about it was amazing... the gardens are the most beautiful I've ever seen. The house itself is beyond compare.. and we were lucky enough to have JUDY as our tour guide. She is the best I've ever seen. She was fun.. funny.. knowledgeable and above all friendly. This was the ONLY one of the houses which is actually a "home". The owner actually lives there, and they allow you to TOUCH everything. You can even play the piano.. (and so can SHE believe me!). The "Gardner" is also an artist, and has his own shop on the grounds. Make sure you stop in and visit him.
If you are ever in the area, make this a required stop... it's well worth the money and the time. We spent about 3 or 4 hours here and enjoyed every second!
