Nottoway Plantation
Nottoway Plantation is the South's largest remaining antebellum mansion.

Visitors to Nottoway Plantation are amazed at the grandeur of the massive plantation – truly an “American castle” – nestled along Louisiana’s Great River Road in the namesake town of White Castle in Plantation Country.

A dramatic multi-million dollar renovation recently restored Nottoway to her days of glory and added amenities to meet modern-day expectations.  Guided historical tours of the mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and an on-site museum provide a unique glimpse of plantation life.  In addition, Nottoway is a full-service historical inn, offering modern accommodations in elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites.  Overnight guests can choose the Caretakers’ Quarters overlooking the iris pond, a more spacious layout in the Overseer’s Cottage, or an authentic bedroom in the mansion itself.

The mansion’s second level Grand White Ballroom has provided a breathtaking backdrop for many weddings. An intriguing outdoor pool accents the bridal suite, and a dressing salon fit for a queen is a new wedding feature, along with an on-site spa.

The Mansion Restaurant, nestled in the historical home, specializes in classic cuisine with a south Louisiana flair and is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Le Café offers a variety of coffees, teas, snacks and pastries.  Plus, there is a business center and a special venue for weddings, corporate events, and more.  Nottoway, a AAA three Diamond inn, is located at 31025 Louisiana Highway 1.  Guided tours are offered 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily on the hour at a price of $20 for adults and $6 for children under 6 to 12 years old and free for children five and younger. Self-guided tours are available for $8 for adults.  For more details call 866-527-6884 or 225-545-2730, or visit online.
