Be aware if you stay on property that there is a train that runs all night long with long whistles. This started at midnight and went until about 8. We did not hear any trains the entire afternoon prior or the morning of our departure. We left around 11. We stayed in Cabin 4 and found it a good place if you want a break from hotels and restaurants. We could have cooked in our kitchen (we did not). The claw tub had poor drainage. We found ourselves standing in about 6" of water at the end of our shower. It drained fairly rapidly once the water was shut off. I would recommend staying here if you want to visit several plantations and use this as a base as long as you can handle the interruptions by the train whistles in the night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nowhere else in the south will you find such a spectacular setting!The story of Oak Alley Plantation began with a vision, an alley of 28 oaks later mirrored by a manor with 28 columns. In the early 1700’s an unknown settler planted twenty-eight evenly spaced oak trees in two rows leading from his humble cottage toward the mighty Mississippi River. Over a decade later, an aristocrat by name of Jacques Telephores Roman lured his New Orleans socialite bride to leave her city live life, to achieve his dream of becoming a sugar king. In 1839, Jacques and Celina built this spectacular mansion, leaving the Roman legacy for us to enjoy today. Come and enjoy her beauty and dream of her rich past. Explore 25 acres of history and romance, regret and rebirth, tragedy and triumph. Enjoy a Mint Julep or refreshing lemonade while strolling these historic grounds and see the legacies left by the Romans, the Stewarts and those in between. Step back in antebellum elegance and tour the Big House with a guide in period dress. And witness the reconstructed slave quarters to understand the lives of the workers whose labor made plantation life and its luxuries possible.
