The charming Creole cottages at Destrehan Plantation were named to honor two women who once lived here. Marie Celeste was the daughter of the original owner of the plantation. She went on to marry a Destrehan. Marguerite was an enslaved cook and laundress who lived here with her two children, Charlo and Noel. You can learn more about both of these amazing women on the tour that is included with your stay. We invite you to check-in and unpack a little history. Keep in mind both cottages are located just 25 minutes from New Orleans and along the Great River Road where you can tour more grand homes.
All proceeds from cottage rentals go to the restoration and preservation of Destrehan Plantation and its dependency buildings.
