Back view of B&B


This country Victorian home is located right on the banks of Bayou Lafourche. The setting is absolutely stunning! You can rest in the hammock and watch the bayou flow slowly by or rock in the comfortable rockers on the back porch facing the bayou. Watch the water birds searching the floating vegetation for food. Catch sight of a bald eagle soaring over the bayou where fish are jumping. Catch a glimpse of an alligator raise its head above water or an egret perched on the wharf. Hear the sounds of birds, crickets, owls, and bullfrogs.

  • Wonderful Memories!

    By Lanny on Oct 16, 2009

    Secret Find! It's been so nice staying at this lovely B&B when we have a soccer game in the area. We shared it with 2 other couples that travel on the same soccer team. Now we all stay at the same place and enjoy each other's company. We grilled steaks in the backyard, fixed frozen margaritas, and relaxed while listening to Cajun music. Thanks for everything, Claudette. We look forward to returning next year.

  • Wonderful Experience!
