Peaceful, Unique Experience

Posted Dec 29, 2016
Pros: beautiful scenery, good bar and restaurant
Cons: It would be nice if the rooms were better described so you choose the one that suits you best.
Location: There are lots of plantations. Be sure to visit Houmas house!
We stayed in the cheapest loft lodging, and it was lovely. It was actually divided into two rooms, and large bedroom and a small bedroom and bathroom across the hallway. It is very peaceful. I would recommend it for a one night stay. Children would probably get bored. You need a car to get here. Be sure to visit Houmas house, a nearby plantation.

Good and Bad: Tough Call

Posted Dec 23, 2016
stayed 2 nights on our trip. This was a tough review because the good was great the bad was pretty bad... GOOD: Rich history, great tour of beautiful mansion, cute small museum, DELICIOUS food at restaurant, beautiful grounds right on the Mississippi River, nice little escape. Fun event of bond fire and fireworks. Easy parking. Complimentary tour tickets! BAD: Room was infested with lady bugs, yellow jackets and a mouse that we woke up to scurrying behind the couch the dresser and by my luggage. Because it was an old building there is little holes in the walls and floors I think the pests come through because it's by feilds. Floors are creecky. Also, due to the age, the restroom was in a separate room (I'm sure other rooms have it in the same area this was just our experience in the room we got.) the jacuzzi didn't really work it was warm at best and the press "0" for help didn't work. Also there was no flyer or info given about times of events that would've made it more enjoyable. So overall a wonderful place, on the river, great food at the restaurant; but the room itself was not very comfortable.

Staying in History

Posted Dec 22, 2016
Cons: Heating/cooling in the room -- not quiet and wasn't even sure how to use it effectively
Location: This is a beautiful location and would be perfect (and often is) great for a group of friends and family to share experiences here.
Wonderful experience to stay in this beautiful location, tour the house and property, eat a great meal and all at a reasonable price. We felt comfortable here and even felt as though we were part of the plantation experience. a credit to the renovation and gracious southern hospitality

44 th Wedding Anniversary 2-night stay at Nottoway

Posted Dec 20, 2016
The heartwarming memories of our stay at Nottoway will be with us for a lifetime! From the moment we walked in to check-in till the moment we drove off was smooth-sailing and stress-free! Our room was clean, comfortable, and beautiful. We loved rocking on our front porch and that of the Plantation while reflecting on Plantation life without cell phones, TV, or radio. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The restaurant and the Cafe had absolutely the most delicious food and servers! We highly recommend a visit to Nottoway for a getaway or to celebrate a special occasion. Walking up the levee to view the river added that special touch to the experience of realizing life on Nottoway long ago! The memories of our 44th anniversary will be forever etched in our hearts and mind!

Unusual venue

Posted Dec 3, 2016
Pros: Highly attractive, unusual, out of the way . Really relaxing place to stay with good restaurant.
Cons: Let people know that some rooms are up very steep, narrow staircase. Better dusting or ornate furniture.
Location: Outdoor pool and tennis court on property. Attractive grounds for walking or sitting and contemplating. Good for relaxtion.
Unusual setting for a hotel, located on a plantation built before the Civil War. The mansion and grounds are well maintained and the tour of the mansion was fun and informative. The price of the tour was included in the room fee when you stayed at the facility -- a real perk. Our room was up a steep flight of stairs, that information would be useful if included in room descriptions. Our room and bathroom were comfortable and modernized but with period-reminiscent pieces also in the room. These pieces were attractive but ornate and could have done with better dusting. The food in both café and restaurant were delicious and the staff were very attentive. The landscaping was quite attractive and across from the Mississippi River. It is about 20 miles from Baton Rouge and there is not a lot to do locally but it was a very restful and relaxing place to stay. Apparently, the venue is the scene for many weddings and large gatherings. Television reception, it was football season, was good. Wifi was inconsistent.

Beautiful property

Parking is safe but inconvenient. Restaurant and bar are excellent!

We know that our parking lot is not adjacent to our restaurant, and do understand that some might want to park closer. We hope that the walk (100 yards) to restaurant under the 150 year old oak trees makes up for it. Thank you for dining with us, we hope to have you back!

Great Getaway

Posted Nov 28, 2016
My boyfriend and I stayed here one night while on our way to Alabama for the holidays. We had a late check in and the staff was extremely friendly! We ran into a few minor issues (there was a wasp nest outside of our room and the drains needed to be fixed) but overall it really was incredible. We also got a complementary tour of the grounds with our stay but we didn't have time to take it. Most of all, we appreciate that even though we're young adults the staff treated us respectfully. We will definitely be back!

Awesome hotel, a bit out the way

Posted Nov 28, 2016
Awesome hotel, amazing room. Was a bit out of the way but I guess that is part of the experience.

Yes, we feel that part of the experience of being at a resort is being somewhat remote, this way you can really relax and escape from the "real world". We are glad you stayed with us and that you LOVED your room. We hope to have you back as future guests with us.
