The mosquitoes were really bad. The house looked interesting although we didn't go in. Not much else to see. The guard at the gate was rude and unprofessional.

Just got back from a walk around the grounds. It's incredibly peaceful. The landscape is gorgeous and a perfect place for pictures. We didn't go on a tour of the house (it's Wednesday), but sitting on the Adirondack chairs was just as nice and fun....More

This is a nice little spot that everyone should see. The big beautiful live oak trees are just breath taking and my pics don't do them justice.

The Park itself is a beautiful place! However the Volunteers at the park are vindictive and interfered every step of the way during the setup and process of the wedding. They called their manager, and he even said, it was O.K. for us to have...More

We needed a break from the sun and are very interested in history, so this was a welcome respite. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about the history and furnishings in the house. The grounds are beautiful as is the bayou.

Yes, it costs $4 per person for the home tour. There is also an entrance fee for the park which is $4 per car and pay by honor system. The grounds are open all year but on Tuesdays and Wednesdays the house is closed.
