The antebellum Big House and the surrounding 28 acres of this National Historic site present the history of what was a working sugarcane plantation and those who once resided there.
Built with success, prestige and power in mind, the Oak Alley ‘Big House’ commands attention. The mansion is decorated with period furniture. The landscape is famous for the 28 grand old oaks that line the entrance to the Bon Séjour plantation, as it was called, as well as wide pastures and a 1920’s formal garden located on the remains of a 1830’s kitchen. A blacksmith shop and slavery and sugarcane exhibits round out the experience.
Oak Alley Plantation Restaurant & Inn also offers guests the opportunity to spend the night in 19th century cottages and the property also has a restaurant, bar, and gift shop.
