After having visited various plantations during road trips round the US over the years, it was strange to actually be staying in one. Current owners Ravi & John took over in January. John greeted us on arrival and showed us to our room, the Vhoories suite, which opened out onto the balcony. When we visited they didn't yet have balcony...

Greeted by owner Ravi, we were enchanted by our welcome, the house, the other guests, and the location. The house has beautiful big airy rooms, and our room had an amazing four poster bed in it - with a step to get up into it, as it was so high off the floor! Ravi had invited a local man to...

What a great place ! We found this online as we have been roadtripping through the south. It was much more than your usual place to stay. It is on the Historical register, and furnished with lovely antiques, the service and extras were exceptional. Some of the fixtures have seen better days and I wouldn't even mention it but I...

Staying at Mouton isn't just about a nice room in an historical house. Although you can lay your eyes and hands on different antiques, I was also captivated by the host passion and knowledge about Louisiana and Cajun traditions and history, and the way he tried to show it to us. Our experience was pleasant from the moment we arrive....

Check out the accordion player, John, your host at the Plantation Mouton. If you're nice to him he'll play you a song or two. Breakfast is really really good and they have a chef named Craig preparing them. Warning. Don't go there if you're on a diet.

The couple who owners of this b&b are precious! Coerte & Marjorie are gracious, accommodating and helpful. I loved the room it was spacious, clean & comfortable. They are dog friendly and the area was perfect for daily walks. Coerte gives Atchafalaya Basin tours and are very knowledgeable about the area & history. Breakfast was delicious!!
