Originally built in the late 1880s, this beautiful cottage has been cared for and housed multiple families before becoming Benedict's Plantation. In 1960, under the ownership of the LeDoux family, the cottage went through extensive renovations and then continued to be sold through a variety of owners. Bought by restaurateurs in 1990, and adding on the Grand Ballroom in 1998, it now stands as you see it today.

I cannot begin to express how wonderful my experience with Benedict’s Plantation was!!! Everyone was so helpful and accommodating before hand in the planning phase, price was super competitive and facilities were beautiful. The day of the wedding, every small detail was exactly as we had planned, they did everything to make sure our day went smoothly and it was perfect!!!! The manager on site the day of the wedding and our attendant were so helpful, friendly and easy to work with. The food was fantastic and if you are looking for a specialty drink, try the “Something Blue”, you won’t be disappointed. I cannot thank the folks at Benedict’s enough for our perfect day and happily recommend them with all the stars in the sky!!!!!!Sent on 08/14/2019

Our reception was amazing! Hands down the best service we have ever received. I didn't even have to think because they helped us out tremendously! My husband and our families were well taken cared of between the food and drinks all night. We were definitely spoiled! This is an amazing place to have your wedding and/or reception. My dreams definitely came true that night thanks to Benedicts!Sent on 08/26/2017

Benedict's Plantation is such a great place for weddings. The grounds are well maintained & easy to film. There is a beautiful courtyard for outdoor weddings or for pictures. The insides are clean & have plenty of room for guests. And, the food is great.
