Overnight Cottages

Overnight cottage stays

The century old plantation cottages are located on the grounds, not far from the antebellum Big House. They are comfortable and secure in an uncluttered and quiet setting. All rooms are equipped with central air conditioning and heat, game boards for your entertainment, refrigerator, microwave, basic utensils, coffee maker and of course the makings: wireless internet, hair dryer, iron and ironing board and luxury waffle monogram robes. Cottages are also furnished with Tempur-Pedic mattresses for a most restful night's sleep. Most have Cable T.V., but check individual cottages to see the amenities available in each.

Indeed, guests find delight in leisurely strolls on the lush grounds (certain restrictions may apply during special activities at the Plantation) or on the levee where they watch the mighty Mississippi River roll by. They tell us that their stays are wonderful retreats where they unwind, clear their minds, and awake refreshed and ready to enjoy a full country breakfast (included in the cottage rental rate) which is served daily at the Oak Alley Restaurant between 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.


Check in: 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Check out: 11:00 a.m. (12 p.m. with Do not Disturb Package - see Packages).

Experience suggests that guests feel more at home and enjoy their visit more when they arrive with time for a tour (not included in rental rate) and have the opportunity to become familiar with their surroundings before nightfall. Special arrangements must be made for those guests who cannot arrive before 9:00 p.m.

Due to the high volume of repeat cottage guests, Big House tour tickets are not included in your stay.   Cottage guests may purchase "Big House" tour tickets upon check-in.
