The Cabin Restaurant

I shared my experiences on River Road recently with everyone and promised you a quaint little restraunt that I fell in love with! This restaurant  is located right on the way to several of the plantations. I must confess that I ate here three different times all in one week! Yikes! That's bad isn't it? Oh well I really enjoyed the experience and most importantly , the food! 


 The front of the restaurant is a converted slave cabin.




The Cabin also has a great photo op, with the rustic cabin


tiny creek, pond and footbridge. 




You won't want to miss this alligator that is carved out of an old tree log! 







They have a great lunch special everyday. The food is very good! The atmosphere is truly unique and worth a trip. The special of the day was Cajun beans , rice , and sausage. Along with that you are served a salad and homemade cornbread and vanilla cake! 


 
The first time I came I was seated in this area. Look at all those old beams! I spent more time looking around than eating!


Look at the two far walls , those are old slave cabins, which serves as a foyer. 


Check out the old brick! My hubby loved this place. I think it was more because of the food not the brick


Now how did this picture make it in here? This is my handsome son who is thrilled to be dragged to every historical site around! He's a trooper!


The old windows are amazing!


When you go out back to where the old cistern restrooms are located . You walk through this beautiful court yard with lights and a gazebo. They host live music and events out here through out the year. 



The Cabin is full of a unique ambiance! This was one of my favorite stops during my visit to River Road. I am leaving you with a few more pictures of this quaint restaurant!

Plantation Homes in The Deep South

I recently had the chance to travel to Louisiana to view several of our nations most beautiful plantation homes located along The River Road.  Each plantation home had its own unique stye and Deep South touch! I took pictures of some of my favorite details at each home. I love the pillared splendor of these early pre civil war manors and plantations.



I absolutely loved the spiral staircase entry at the Evergreen Plantation!


The oak lined road driving up to Evergreen was absolutely breath taking!



Next on my stop was The Houmas House


I love the porches and gardens surrounding this home!





One of the most ornate plantation homes I think I have ever viewed was the San Francisco Plantation! 





I love the shutters that cover the doors!






I  will add part two with several more plantation homes ! I hope you have enjoyed these pics as much as I have!
