Fodor's Review

This galleried, 21-room Greek Revival mansion with massive white columns was designed by architect Henry Howard and completed in 1846. The house has an enormous freestanding staircase and 20-foot-high ceilings, and is best experienced with an overnight stay in the bed-and-breakfast and a candlelight dinner. Guests can arrange a tour with the owners; call for an appointment. Bayou Lafourche is across the road.
