Each cottage has a private bathroom, a full kitchen, and a porch or deck with a barbecue grill. Five of the cottages feature two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Guests can sleep in either a queen- or king-sized four-poster bed, and use the heating, air conditioning, and ceiling fans. There is also cable TV and wireless internet access. Five of the cottages have working fireplaces and all of them have a double hot tub.

The Treehouse, the Cook's Cottage, and the Gazebo are all one-bedroom cabins with working fireplaces.Both the Treehouse and the Gazebo have king-sized beds, whereas the Cook's Cottage features a queen bed, a big back deck overlooking the pond, and a porch with a swing. The Gazebo also has a deck overlooking the pond, and it is known for its antique stained-glass church windows that measure 9 feet long. There is an entire back wall of glass at the Treehouse, where a three-level deck dips into a steep ravine.

The Dovecote, the Pond House, the Pool Pavilion, Chase's Cottage, and the Old Kitchen all have two bedrooms with a king-sized bed and a double bed, complete with two full bathrooms.

The Dovecote is a three-story windmill with a deck overlooking a steep ravine. The Pond House is distinct for its gingerbread-trimmed porch with a hammock overlooking the pond, as well as a large back deck with meadow views.

The Pool Pavilion is next to the swimming pool, where a shaded gazebo is perfect for viewing the wooden ravine.

Sitting right along the pond, Chase’s Cottage has a porch swing with a garden view and features a queen-sized bed instead of the double, along with the king-sized bed in the other bedroom.

Built in 1796, the Old Kitchen is made of brick and features skylights, exposed beams, and an old 115-foot-deep well.
 
There is a $10 charge for extra guests in any of the cottages. Rates include private continental breakfasts in each accommodation.

Dating back to the 1790s, these antebellum cottages are set on 50 acres of a Louisiana plantation near the historic town of St. Francisville. The grounds are well-groomed with colorful gardens shaded by ancient oak trees. Encompassing the plantation is an unspoiled forest where deer, foxes, bobcats, and chipmunks can be spotted, as well as beautiful herons at the quiet pond.
