Side Trips from New Orleans Sights


Madewood Review

This galleried, 21-room Greek Revival mansion with massive white columns was designed by architect Henry Howard and completed in 1854. The house, across the road from Bayou Lafourche, has an enormous freestanding staircase and 25-foot-high ceilings, and is best experienced overnight in the bed-and-breakfast. Guests can arrange a tour with the owners; call for appointments.
