We stayed one day at the beginning of March this year. The house was restored starting about 50 years ago, and not in a kitschy way. The furniture is from the period. We slept in a wonderful wooden canopy bed crafted by a well known craftsman in New Orleans. We had the one bedroom on the first floor and loved...

They were all set up for filming a Civil War Movie. Really made the place look spooky. Had a great time goofing on our friends. Angie and the crew were fabulous and entertaining, and the meals were EXCELLENT!! Great Southern Hospitality. The owner stopped by one morning and gave us some info on the Plantation, and was very friendly. We...

I stayed a night in April '16 with my parents so they could show me where my family originally came from in Louisiana. It was such a special and fun night in an old plantation home. The dog was so sweet. The property had great photo ops. I had lots of wine and enjoyed making friends with everyone there during...

A visit to Madewood is what you always imagined living in a plantation house in the antebellum south was all about. Built in 1840-48 by Colonel Thomas Pugh, a member of a prominent and wealthy Louisiana family, Madewood represents one of the finest and purest examples of the Greek Revival style architecture in a plantation home. Located at 4250 Highway...

We only stayed one night for my birthday during March of 2016, however we wish it could have been 3+ nights! We we're driving from Shreveport, and before that Dallas/Ft Worth, to make it to Madewood. While we we're stuck in traffic south of Baton Rouge, we we're unsure if we would make it in time for the dinner, so...

Beautiful old mansion; good, hard-working and for the most part well-meaning people; good food; good old Southern hospitality and ambiance. These are the things we came away with and want to remember about our visit. Granted, it took 12 minutes for the water to get hot enough in our room to take a shower, but then there was not enough...

This review should be removed immediately, as its claims are false and defamatory. We have security videos of the person making the claim wearing the jewelry (a man's bracelet) both at checkout and as they approached their vehicle to depart Madewood. When the gentleman called to report his bracelet missing, he told Angie that he was not certain where he...

This place is an perfect Southern experience. The food was excellent. We started the night with wine and cheese, proceeded to the dinning room for dinner and was served a 4 course meal, after this superb meal we where invited in the parlour for a night cap. The room made you feel like you where taken back in time and...

Great place, fantastic food and wonderful people -- especially Angie! I was part of a bike tour group, and we stayed two nights. The tour with Woman Tours was exceptional, and Madewood was a highlight.

My husband and I have stayed at Madewood twice. This time we took our 17 year old daughter and her friend on our way to NOLA to a wedding and a Tulane tour. We will return again. It is a beautiful home with the most hospitable, helpful staff. Staying at Madewood is unique. It is not a hotel, it is...

This Henry Howard plantation is one of the great show places of South Louisiana. The grounds, cemetery and views enhance the magnificent architecture. However, I would strongly suggest that you book in the main building. The 3-bedroom "cabin" with the screened porch looks charming FROM THE OUTSIDE, and the porch is pleasant. BUT the interior leaves much to be desired....

We are delighted that these guests, descendants of the builder and original owner of Madewood, found the mansion so impressive, and we thank them for the compliments. But why the unkind words about Freeman Cottage, the modest cabin of the Freeman family, who lived in it for seven generations after being brought from North Carolina to Louisiana as slaves by...
