Madewood Plantation Home
4250 Highway 308
This circa 1846 National Historic Landmark mansion was once part of a working sugar cane plantation, and is located in Napoleonville on Bayou Lafourche. It is a fine example of Greek Revival architecture and now serves as a Bed & Breakfast offering five elegantly appointed rooms in the main house and the restored riverboat captain’s house (circa early 19th century) now known as the Charlet House which offers two exceptional suites.
A stay at Madewood includes wine and cheese gathering, dinner by candlelight offering a menu filled with Louisiana favorites, and coffee and brandy after dinner. You also must be prepared for a full plantation style breakfast followed by a complimentary tour of the mansion. The home and grounds are also available for weddings – from small intimate gatherings to large formal parties. Call (800) 375- 7151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In January-February and July-August, Madewood offers special rates and weekend getaways, as well as food, art, and lifestyle seminars and events. The Christmas Heritage Banquet, held the second Saturday in December, features seasonal music and food in the elaborately decorated mansion.

Come join us as we ride across beautiful Lake Verret and into surrounding bayous on the Attakapas Princess for a true Louisiana swamp tour. Peer into the Louisiana Bald Cypress-Tupelo Gum swamps, dripping with Spanish Moss. See the state wild flower, the Louisiana Blue Iris in the early spring. Learn about cypress logging at the turn of the last century and see a 100+ year old steam locomotive on the site of an original skidder camp. Hear about the geological history of an area rich in gas and oil. Let your imagination take you back in time while Ginger Rushing tells you about the Attakapas Indians who centuries ago called these swamps home.
Lake Verret - Belle River
Lying east of the Atchafalaya Floodway system levee, near the town of Pierre Part is a beautiful system of waterways referred to as the Lake Verret - Belle River area. Being in such close proximity to the Atchafalaya Basin, this area is very popular with Louisiana anglers.
On the north there is access via Bayou Corne which leads to Grand Bayou, Bayou Alcide, Old Texaco Field, and into Lake Verret. This water system can also be accessed from Bayou Grobec at Pierre Part on the north end, Shell Beach Landing on the west side of the lake, Little Grand Bayou from Hwy. 402 on the northeast, Attakapas Landing on the southeast side from Napoleonville, Adams Landing via Belle River, and areas around Stephensville. Other waterways to the south include, Bayou Magazille, Four Mile Bayou, Bayou Milhomme, Grassy Lake, and Lake Palourde.
Lake Verret is a shallow lake with stands of beautiful cypress trees along its shoreline. Largemouth Bass, bluegill, and catfish are the most sought after species. In the spring, Lake Verret experiences incredible catches of bream. The "giant" run on chinquapin is a great attraction for the area. This beautiful area of south Louisiana is truly a sportsman's paradise!
