Return to grandeur at Nottoway Plantation
One of the largest remaining antebellum mansions in the South, it will be an American treasure for decades to come.
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 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, which is a AAA three Diamond inn that offers discounts to members, is located at 31025 Louisiana Highway 1. Guided tours offered 9 a.m.–4 p.m. daily on the hour are $20 for adults and $6 for children under 12. For more details call 866-527-6884 or 225-545-2730, or visit online at www.nottoway.com.
