Considered the best and most original interpretation of American Greek Revival architecture in the nation. Located only 20 minutes from Baton Rouge, it has long been thought of as one of the jewels of the River Road plantations between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Now an elegant bed and breakfast, Bocage Plantation is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has been used as a Hollywood movie set, is well documented in many books, and is definitely a historic treasure not to be missed. Handsome double parlors open onto the front gallery that provides a panoramic view of the 100-acre plantation with the second-level grand rooms overlooking the levee that fronts the Mississippi River. Steeped in history with ties to Christopher Columbus and the early colonization of America, the magnificent mansion was designed by famous architect James Dakin and no expense was spared to furnish the mansion built in 1837 after the original 1801 Creole cottage on the site burned.
