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.

what a wonderful time we had visiting Oak Alley and staying in this cottage. Wish we had stayed here several nights as the accommodations were outstanding! Can't beat
temperpedic beds, either! Dinner was excellent in the privacy of our cottage with every detail perfect! Well done!

Room Tip: Cottage 6 is perfect for 2 couples

Stunning and quiet grounds to stay in. House is beautiful and the cottage we stayed in (4) was perfect. Great amenities and facilities also. Couldn't be more perfect after spending days in hotel rooms. The only drawback is that there isn't any transport into the city of New Orleans, so car is only option.
There are no spa or fitness facilities but this is a good thing as it's about the location and grounds.

My wife and I loved our trip to Oak Alley Plantation. We were in the Cajun Room in Rene House and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay. The complimentary breakfast in the morning at the restaurant was delicious, and we were given glasses of lemonade upon check-in to sip on while we were escorted to our room.

The room was adorable and very comfortable, and the cottage had everything you could possibly need available to you, including a fully stocked kitchen, dining room, living room, and front porch available to all Rene House guests. There is the opportunity to visit with others staying in the cottage but no pressure to do so if you'd prefer to spend time alone in your room.

The plantation closes to the public in the evening, but guests at the inn are given flashlights and are allowed to tour the grounds, alley of oak trees, outside of the house, etc., after closing time. My wife and I had a great time grabbing a flashlight at night and walking around--both eerie and beautiful at the same time. Inn guests also receive a discount on tickets for the mansion tour.

One thing we didn't do and wish we had: We received a notice from the inn before arriving that there aren't any nearby restaurants and that they recommend you order room service from their restaurant for dinner. I figured we could probably find something close by, so I passed on the offer. Well, they weren't kidding. This place is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, and there was nothing around for miles and miles that looked safe or appealing. Given how good their breakfast and cafe food was, I would recommend taking them up on the offer of room service and eating on the grounds. (It's room service because the restaurant on the property closes before dinnertime.)

Overall: Friendly staff. Beautiful location. Comfortable and relaxing rooms. A great stay all around. I'd definitely visit again.

We recently spent two nights at Oak Valley Plantation in the Victorian room at the Rene House. We choose this house because it was the only one that had two queen size beds and we were traveling with another couple. This cottage had four bedrooms, a nice living room, dinning room and a large kitchen. Our room was at the back of the cottage and had a door opening to the outside onto a private patio. The room was small, but comfortable, except there was no closet so things had to hung on the back of the door. There were also no chairs of any kind in the room. The bathroom was large and had a very large tub with a hand held shower, which maybe was not such a good idea for older folks getting in and out of the tub. The breakfast was wonderful and I'm sure if we had ordered in dinner it would have been very good. The service was excellent, especially in the restraurant. There were plenty of places to walk and enjoy the plantation, or cross the road and enjoy the view of the area from the levee. We enjoyed our stay, but felt our room was a little expensive.

This was the most beautiful place we visited during the week in Louisiana and Mississippi. Our cottage was near the back of the property with a very large live oak shading the large deck. The cottage had two good sized bedrooms with a comfortable sized living room and full kitchen. The breakfast that was included in the package was superb and the overall service of the staff was great especially the ladies in their southern belle dresses who gave us a tour of the mansion. Try the mint juleps! They have a wonderful gift shop and deli although the only negative is the limited hours and lack of a restaurant after 5pm. In addition, the small town only has one or two places to eat so you need to plan wisely regarding meals. Vacherie is a perfect home base to take day trips to Baton Rouge, New Orleans or other surrounding sites and I will return to spend a few days in the near future.

Room Tip: Cottage 6 was quieter than most with a shaded deck in the evening and a closed in porch on the other...

These cottages are very quaint and well appointed. There is opportunity for you to mingle with other cottage guests if you so wish. Eat in or die out. The option is yours. It really transports you to another world. Cross the road and walk the levee. Makes for a great view of the plantation and the river.

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. Visit the Civil War Interpretive Exhibit which consists of a commanding officer's tent, staffed most days by one of our three Civil War interpreters. These interpreters, along with our video kiosk, will allow visitors to understand one of the most crucial periods in this nation's history. Enjoy small group discussions with one of our interpreters who are available to answer your specific questions.Dine with us and savor flavorful Cajun & Creole dishes in our Restaurant or grab a light lunch or ice cream in our Café. Browse our impressive Gift Shop. Spend a tranquil evening in one of our 19th century old cottages. Even plan a wedding, corporate or special event. There is just so much to experience at Oak Alley! ... more   less
