The best place to stay when fishing the marsh is a historic, antebellum mansion converted into a lively bed and breakfast called The Woodland Plantation. Originally established as a working plantation in 1834, the Woodland is now a family owned and operated hotel with over twenty bedrooms each with private baths. In addition to the “Big House”, the Plantation also has five other buildings on the property for smaller groups to enjoy a private house or condo-style accommodation.
The Woodland is located right along the west bank of the Mississippi River forty-five minutes from New Orleans and ten minutes from the boat launch.Read More
