What folks are saying about the Overnight Cottages

 

My husband and I stayed in cabin 9 back in March. We had a good visit. I wanted to ask if you would would share  where you bought the blanket that was between the sheets. It was a perfect weight for us and it kept us warm. I want that for our bed at home. You are a good Decorator!  The cabin was beautiful. Everything about it was nice. We will visit again.

We had an absolutely wonderful experience last weekend, thank you so very much for all the attention given to details!  We also greatly appreciated being surrounded with so many beautiful antiques and other considerations while staying in Cottage 3!  I generally do a lot of research before going to a new place to be as familiar as possible when I arrive, and there were still many wonderful things to learn when we got there, in addition to being a special photographic opportunity.  Wonderful on so many levels!  Our greatest thanks to the Stewart family for making this all happen, keeping a priceless piece of history in motion and presenting it in such a respectable way, providing many jobs for the local community, just can't say enough good things about what this place represents.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We enjoyed our visit very much. This was our third visit but the first overnight stay. Cabin #9 was great.The food was delicious and the music was great. I expected a little more for the bonfire but overall everything could not have been better. Would highly recommend Oak Alley.   Bob  12/2015


My wife and I stayed at Oak Alley earlier this week, Sept. 20-22.   We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.  I had searched for the perfect place, and I must say that I found it.  Our stay was wonderful and could not have been any better.  I just wanted to send an email and let you know.  Thanks for a wonderful time.  Stephen, Scobey, MS  9/2015


"Our stay on April 4th in cottage 3 was an absolute highlight to a trip that included New Orleans, Ocean Springs MS, and St. Martinsville.  The staff at Oak Alley were impeccable not only with service, beginning with the lemonade at check, friendly from the registration desk tot he golf cart escort, to our tour guide at the big house, the cottage review,  the suggestion of chilled wine at the gift shop, to the amazing Blue Bell Creole Cream Cheese ice cream and its server; but to the fun bantering, lighthearted and kind employees who were gracious and what southern hospitality is all about.  My husband commented that whoever does the hiring should be given  high praise for Oak Alley staff.

The Do Not Disturb package was an added bonus and such a pleasure at such a reasonable price!  Strolling the grounds after hours with a mint julep and Easter morning breakfast with the best, creamiest grits I ate the whole trip (my husband is a yankee so I got his too!!) was a delight.  An additional bonus was a full moon sitting out on the deck.  

WE could not have asked for more and sorry to have missed meeting you.  I have praised our experience from Houston to Albuquerque.  All the best for the rest of the season to you and your staff.  Laura,  Tijeras, NM 4/2015

 

I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to each and every person responsible for one of the best vacations we've ever had! Our stay on May 23rd and 24th in cottage 4 was amazing. The cottage was superb, spacious, clean and like a home away from home. The location, as always, was perfect being right there at Oak Alley.

This was our second stay with you, and we will definitely be returning many times. Oak Alley is one of my very favorite places. Louisiana is just an amazing place with so much to see and do. After an extended stay in New Orleans, we really look forward to the peace and tranquility Oak Alley is so famous for!

Once again, my daughter was totally in love with the bed and bedding she had. She still talks of our first stay with you, and the insanely comfortable bed and bedding she had then!!

Again, I want to extend my sincere and heartfelt thank you to...Housekeeping, for the impeccably clean and cozy cottage. Restaurant employees and chef, for the wonderful service, delicious meals and cozy atmosphere. Groundskeeping, for the beautifully groomed gardens, trees and grounds that add so much to the visual beauty of Oak Alley! Gift Shop employees, for being so helpful, kind and hospitable. You always make my shopping experience a joy! Ticket Office and Late Night Check In Staff, for your help with questions, burned out light bulbs, and the professionalism you convey. Reservation Staff, for your kindness, patience and help on the phone. Mansion Staff and tour guides, for the amazing upkeep, beautiful display of fresh floral arrangements, wonderful tours and expertise of one of the most beautiful places in Louisiana!

Mr. and Mrs. Mayhew, for all of the hard work, dedication, and love you have poured into your Beautiful Oak Alley.Thank you for sharing with us, this delightful piece of paradise, and your beautiful flower gardens. I hope I haven't forgotten any of the talented, hardworking and loyal people that so deserve to be thanked. Oak Alley wouldn't be the amazingly beautiful and wonderful place it is today without the time and dedication of each and every one of you.

We will see you in three years....if not sooner!!!

Best wishes to you all,
Sincerely,
Luc


My husband an I stayed in house number 4 for one night. We toured the big house and walked the grounds. It was truly the most wonderful time my husband and I had ever had in our 12 years of marriage.

Thank you four such a great experience. We hope to come back soon.
