The One Place To Sleep In Louisiana That’s Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
You don’t have to travel too far to find an elegant resort to spend the weekend. The Nottoway Plantation and Resort is just the ticket if you’re looking to spend a day or two relaxing amongst the beautiful oak trees, elegant grounds, and breathtaking architecture. Let’s take a look at what makes the south’s largest plantation such a special place.
Nottoway Plantation is straight out of a fairy tale.
Thousands of people visit here every year to tour the property. It’s also a popular wedding destination, and a four-star hotel.
That massive Greek and Italian-style mansion is well known around the area.
Those white columns, grand balconies, and well-manicured lawns are unmistakable if you’re driving down River Road.
But you should consider a weekend getaway to the south’s largest antebellum plantation.
You won't regret it!
Nottoway spans 31 acres and has so much to offer you during your stay.
Test your tennis skills on the tennis courts...
...or relax out by the pool...
...or take a leisurely stroll through the grounds.
The property is simply breathtaking.
Be sure to take a tour of the mansion and learn the history of Nottoway.
During your guided tour a knowledgeable tour guide will lead you through the mansion, sharing the history of Nottoway’s construction and her remarkable survival through the Civil War.
John Hampden Randolph was a successful sugar planter, and wanted to build the ultimate plantation to showcase his wealth.
The mansion was completed in 1859 and covers an astonishing 53,000 square feet.
64 rooms, 22 exterior columns, and 12 hand-carved Italian marble fireplaces are just some of the features of this historic gem.
15-foot ceilings, 11-foot doors, and intricately detailed moldings are just some of the fascinating details of this plantation. I’d say Randolph achieved his goal of having the most extravagant house on the Mississippi River.
After a day of exploring, stop by the Mansion Restaurant for a truly unique dining experience.
The views and the food are spectacular!
You can stay in the mansion, the overseer's cottage, individual cottages, or a room in the carriage house.
Each room is beautifully decorated and fit for a king (or queen).
Imagine soaking in a hot bath in this lovely claw-foot tub.
Add a glass of wine and a good book and you're all set.
Then, in the morning, enjoy a delicious breakfast spread.
Fresh cut fruit, cereal, muffins, eggs... This truly is the breakfast of champions.
Nottoway Plantation and Resort is the perfect way to spend a weekend, so start making plans today!
They're located at 31025 Highway 1, White Castle, Louisiana 70788
