Thanksgiving at Houmas House

Reservations are now open for the Annual Thanksgiving Buffet at Houmas House! This year, seating will be on the front lawn beneath the shady Live Oak trees. Socially distant and outdoors, diners will still enjoy a buffet-style menu. Rather than the self-serve stations, Houmas House staff will be serving from each buffet table to provide a safe environment.  Golf cart service will be provided to assist anyone in need of a shuttle. Should the weather be less than perfect, the buffet will be moved to the Great River Road Museum.

Reservations and pre-payment will be required. Credit card will be charged in full upon making your reservation. Cancellations are granted with no penalty if cancelled by November 23rd at 5:00 pm.

$80.00 per Adult
$25.00 per Child (6-13 yrs)
Gratuity Not Included

Tickets to The Great River Road Museum are included!

A cash bar will be available for wine and cocktails.

To reserve your table, please call the Gift Shop between 9:00 am -7:00 pm.
The Story Goes On..

I like to imagine what the former owners of Houmas House from the late 1700's and early 1800's would think of their Estate now. They would be amazed how massive the mossy Live Oaks are, how the Mississippi river has turned and changed shape and all the growth that has taken over the thousands of acres of sugarcane fields. 
How would they feel about running water at the quick turn of a faucet? And what would they think about lighting up an entire room by the flip of a switch? 

I would be so proud to show them how we honor their legacy to this day. We still have some original furniture in the home, their formal china on display and have brought the mansion back to life after years of being closed to the public.

If you have not visited Houmas House lately, plan a trip soon. There's always something new to see. Expanded gardens, the Inn, revamped menus and a new museum just next door are just a few reasons to travel down the Historic River Road and visit Houmas House. See you soon.

Much Love,
