Twelve Oaks Plantation Bed & Breakfast

New Orleans



Find true southern hospitality at this 750-acre working sugar cane plantation nestled amongst centuries-old live oaks. At the Twelve Oaks Plantation Bed & Breakfast, luxury meets comfort and southern charm. Twelve Oaks Plantation is a grand estate nestled among magnificent oak trees in the heart of Cajun Country and overlooks the ever-flowing Big Bayou Black in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. The history of Twelve Oaks Plantation all began when the land was given as a grant from the Spanish to the Martin family in the 1800s. The Newman family purchased the property and built the existing home in 1950. Mr. Fred Newman hired an architect to design the home and gave him a Community Coffee package to use as his inspiration for the design. Today, Twelve Oaks Plantation is a full service bed and breakfast owned and operated by the warm and loving Cenac family, who also happens to be one of the oldest, most prominent families in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. The towering light gray mansion with pillars flanking the dark wood entrance and the second story patios create a fairytale picture to serve as the background in your wedding photos. Have your ceremony on the sprawling stretches of meadows and woodlands or inside in the elegant rooms of the mansion and be a spectacular Southern belle on your special day.
