Oak Alley Plantation highlighted in this wonderful New Zealand newspaper

Step back to a bygone age: Oak Alley Plantation. "In the cosy [sic] Oak Alley restaurant I relax with a tasty lunch on the veranda and enjoy the house specialty of mint julep. This long drink consists of bourbon whiskey, crushed ice, sugar and sprigs of mint. It's decadent enough for me to momentarily segue back into that antebellum period and daydream that I'm lying under an old oak tree up the lazy river. It's a beautiful vision of a bygone age."

Travel writer Paul Rush recently highlighted Oak Alley Plantation in his travels across the southern United States.  We are so excited that we were part of his adventures, and thrilled by the kind words he had about our historic property.
"As the road makes an abrupt turn round a big bend in the river, I see a spectacular sight.
A great house surrounded by Doric columns stands in park-like grounds. A long driveway leading to the house is straddled by ancient oak trees whose branches interlock to form a continuous canopy. It's the most impressive sight I've seen on my scenic drive."
