Houmas House has been fortunate to receive visitors from every corner of the globe for the last 50 years. And we're no longer the best kept secret for travelers.  After winning the title of BEST Historic Mansion in 2016 by USA Today, we've now been nominated for BEST Louisiana Attraction as well! What an honor!

Where have the years gone?  This month Houmas House celebrates fourteen years under the ownership and vision of Kevin Kelly.  From reviving the mansion and expanding the gardens to adding a new inn and restaurant, he has given visitors a reason to come back year after year.  Once stripped of its ornate moldings and bold colors, the Sugar Palace is once again the Crown Jewel of the Great River Road. 
In her heyday, Houmas House was the largest sugar producing plantation in the South spanning over 300,000 acres. Over the years and a series of owners, the land has been reduced to 53 acres but has managed to impress with it's stately Greek Revival architecture, wrap-around porches, and original outbuildings.
With the addition of formal gardens, an extensive gift shop, restaurants and an inn, guests may now spend more than a day exploring and immersing in themselves in the antebellum era.
Although the restaurants have garnered much attention, the mansion tours are still the main reason to visit Houmas House.  Here guests learn about the flamboyant and business savvy men who have owned the plantation since 1775.  Room after room displays both original and period antiques and artwork, truly an extensive collection built over the years.
Once a thriving working sugar cane plantation, Houmas House is now a true destination not to be missed. 

Much Love,


Princess Maggie has become a well-known fixture at Houmas House. She can usually be found riding on the golf cart accompanying guests driven around the property. If you see her, be sure to say hello and give her a sweet pat.
