Plantation Country

Gracious Louisiana Lodging in Plantation Country

Located in the Southeastern region of the state is Louisiana’s gem – Plantation Country. You’ll travel back in time as you discover the Atchafalaya Basin and the rolling hills of St. Francisville. The Bed and Breakfasts of the Louisiana’s Plantation Country offer their visitors a unique glimpse into the past of these spectacular mansions. Some are even reputed to be haunted! Come discover how life played out in these spellbinding settings- hear the tales of civil war life, the star-crossed lovers, and the weary battle soldiers. Let their ghosts remind you of a time long forgotten. Take a tour of Oak Alley – a most photographed plantation bed and breakfast – or Nottoway Plantation – where the past has been forever lovingly preserved. Many of the old plantations provide bed and breakfast and other unique lodging experiences for the adventurous traveler.

And, of course, your visit to Plantation Country would not be complete without a visit to the state’s capitol, Baton Rouge. The 34-floor state capitol building boasts the largest in the nation with its 150-year-old Gothic style edifice situated on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. Lastly, just to spice things up, head to the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center or the Alligator Bayou for a little wildlife flavor! Come stay awhile at a Plantation Country Bed and Breakfast in Louisiana.

Greenwood Plantation was built in 1830 by William Ruffin Barrow in the Greek Revival style of architecture with 28 columns surrounding the mansion. It is considered the South’s finest example of classic colonial.

The original house burned down in 1960 leaving just the columns and front steps behind. It was rebuilt and now stands substantially as it did over a century ago amidst multiple alleys of mature, majestic, moss draped oaks. Furnishings include beautiful 1830 original Barrow family pieces. Pieces from the many movies filmed on location are also displayed. Greenwood is a favorite of Hollywood and has been featured in movies including “Louisiana,” “North & South”, “GI Joe II”, and “Jeepers Creepers III.”

Nestled next to a live oak park over a century old, Greenwood Plantation Bed & Breakfast Inn offers peace and quiet in a place that captures the beauty and magnificence of an old southern plantation. With a full country-style breakfast and majestic scenery, Greenwood Plantation is ideal for honeymoons, picnics, vacations, family reunions, weddings, candlelight dinners or for that quiet weekend getaway you’ve been needing.

French Description

La Plantation Greenwood fut construite dans le style Renaissance Grecque en 1830 par William Ruffin Barrow. 28 colonnes entourent la maison, considérée comme étant le meilleur exemple du style néoclassique dans le Sud.

Dans les années 1960, la maison originale fut détruite par un incendie ; il n’en restait que les colonnes et le perron. Elle fut reconstruite et se tient monumentalement aujourd’hui tout comme il y a un siècle entourée de multiples allées de chênes-verts majestueux recouverts de mousse espagnole. La maison est meublée de pièces originales ayant appartenues à la famille Barrow. Des pièces des nombreux films tournés sur place sont aussi exposées. Une favorite de Hollywood, Greenwood a servi de lieu de tournage pour “Louisiana” (d’après Denuzière), “North and South,” “GI Joe II” et “Jeepers Creepers III.”

Niché dans un parc de chênes-verts vieux de plus d’un siècle, Greenwood Plantation Bed & Breakfast Inn est situé dans un cadre paisible et tranquille, évoquant toute la beauté et la splendeur d’une plantation du Vieux Sud. Avec son petit déjeuner complet et typique de la région ainsi que ses paysages majestueux, Greenwood Plantation est le lieu idéal pour les lunes de miel, les pique-niques, les vacances, les mariages, les dîners aux chandelles ou pour une escapade de fin de semaine.
