If you are planning a trip to New Orleans and surrounding areas in Louisiana, and would like an exquisite and historic place to stay while you explore this wonderful city, then consider the Bocage Plantation, located on the east bank of the Mississippi River, 47 miles west from New Orleans.
This magnificent mansion, which is steeped in rich history, even bears ties to Christopher Columbus and the early colonization of America, and is therefore listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was was built in 1801, and remodeled by the famous architect James Dakin; considered the best and most original interpretation of American Greek Revival architecture in the nation, and furnished with many pieces created by the great furniture makers of the period. It sits on a hefty 110 acres of land, and bears a secondary grand mansion, constructed in 1837.
It has always been a private residence, and carries quite a story. It was however purchased by a new land owner, who decided this luxurious mansion should be open to the public for tours, and as a bed and breakfast. The mansion is completely restored, with four luxurious rooms available, each featuring a grand antique bed (constructed recently, especially for Bocage Plantation guests), as well as a modern, private bathroom attached.Bocage Plantation Bed & Breakfast is available for weddings, meetings, luncheons, teas, dinners, events, tours and of course, accommodations.

You will also enjoy room amenities such as Lord & Mayfair bath accessories, Terry Bathrobes, hair dryer, steam showers with double shower heads, iron and ironing board and complimentary high-speed internet (so you can stay connected).
The mansion is luxurious and historic in nature, offering visitors and guests a chance to feel a bit of the old New Orleans, while offering lavish accommodations and furnishings, as well as modern facilities such as internet access, for comfort and convenience. It is the perfect place to stay for any would-be visitor to New Orleans, wanting to experience a ‘rich’ stay; in luxury, comfort, convenience and historic culture.
