The Inn at Houmas House

The Inn at Houmas House - Front

Hand-Picked Hotel

Charming country cottages surrounded by former plantation estate gardens.

The Inn at Houmas House is surrounded by 38 acres of lush green gardens. It’s the perfect place to take a stroll and listen to the birds as Koi carp circle amongst the lily pads. Some of the garden paths lead along avenues of ancient oak trees to where secret seating areas provide an oasis of peace in what was once one of Louisiana’s primary sugar plantations.

Staying here gives you an opportunity to slip into the past. Guest rooms and suites are elegant and stately with olde world charm emanating from every hard wood whirl. Step outside and you’ll find the Carriage House and Latil’s Landing restaurants offering relaxed and fine dining experiences within walking distance of your very own porch.

Optional tours of the Big House, the gardens and the Great River Road Museum, give you plenty of scope to learn more about the history of Houmas. It’s the perfect add-on, and indeed the perfect antidote, to a few days spent exploring New Orleans.

From yellow corn grits at the Dixie Café and bourbon-based cocktails in the Turtle Bar to walls of wine within the house cellar, if you’re looking for some good old fashioned southern comforts, The Inn at Houmas House is one to add to your Louisiana list.

Local Area

Located just a short distance from New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Darrow is home to some of Louisiana’s most historic plantation estates. This is a world of whitewashed antebellum mansions where expansive lawns and intricately planned gardens sit alongside the banks of the meandering Mississippi River.

This region of southern America will always be synonymous with the Civil Rights movement just as much as the sugar plantations and Baptist churches. If you’re looking to delve into the history of the Deep South, on a self-drive road trip, check into a B&B on a plantation estate in Darrow and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back into the past. In the evenings, once the day visitors have gone for the day, dive into your favourite tipple in the Turtle Bar and you’ll feel like you own the place.
