Historic property with an on-site museum
Expensive for the location
Recent guests called the Nottoway Plantation & Resort an ideal setting for a romantic getaway or an anniversary trip thanks to its historic charm and beautiful grounds. Situated around 80 miles northwest of New Orleans and about 25 miles south of Baton Rouge, the resort sits in White Castle, Louisiana. Despite its somewhat isolated location, the resort offers plenty of diversions and a peaceful atmosphere, according to recent visitors. Originally constructed in 1859, the antebellum plantation has expanded to include nine Acadian-style cottages, an on-site salon, an outdoor pool, a fitness center, and tennis courts. But the real star of the Nottoway Plantation isn't its updated amenities, it's the house itself. You can take a guided tour of the lavish property and on-site museum (highly recommended by recent visitors), or, to really experience what life was like for the original homeowners, opt to bed down in one of the mansion's original rooms, which feature antique beds and authentic furnishings. Whether you stay in the mansion or in one of the property's cottages, you'll find these amenities in every room: wireless internet access, a flat-screen TV and a coffee maker. Another highlight for recent lodgers: The Mansion Restaurant. Reviewers gush about the Creole-inspired cuisine and excellent service, as well as the sweeping views of the Nottoway grounds.

Critic Reviews



Guided mansion tours are included with the room rates. Nottoway is said to be the oldest plantation in Louisiana.

AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards 2019



Saved from Civil War destruction by a Northern gunboat officer who had once been a guest here, the still-handsome interiors feature marvelous curlicue plasterwork, hand-carved Corinthian columns of cypress wood in the ballroom, beautiful archways, and original crystal chandeliers.



An idiosyncratic, somewhat rambling layout reflects the individual tastes of the original owners and includes a grand ballroom, famed in these parts for its crystal chandeliers and hand-carved columns.
