Wonderful!

  • 5 out of 5
We absolutely loved our stay in this house! Our first time walking in was almost magical! Anyone that has seen the pictures we took have been beyond impressed! It says not for kids so I was a bit concerned traveling with our family, our younger girls loved everything about this house also!! It rained and water overflowed the ditches and our girls had a BLAST playing in the rain and splashing in the water that collected in the grass beside the house then going in and warming up in the shower continuing to play in the "rain"! (I call them my half-cajun, bayou babies for the very reason that they have it in their heart and blood naturally!) My oldest daughter named all the farm cats! I was SO excited to see crawfish living right by the back patio! We enjoyed a night of having my husband and mine's families over for dinner prepared in that amazing oven/stove! Some of the touches Jared has around the house I even had to go out and find to bring a little bit of Louisiana back home with us!! I can't write enough about how wonderful his place was! Jared is wonderful and kind to work and communicate with! We enjoyed every single detail of our visit back to my husband's homeland, as I always call it! We definitely look forward to future stays!

We've just recently returned from a stay at this charming home! The owner couldn't have been more delightful to work with and his home is decorated just beautifully, and that's very important to me. He's thought of everything and more! You feel as if you're walking into a piece of history, which by the way you are, but stepped into the pages of Architectural Digest. Charming and will certainly return and recommend. We loved Lafayette and will certainly return. Totally ate our way through the town :) Thank you again Jared for everything!

History w/modern flair!

The previous reviewer said it all! We found this historic home as a stop over for our trip to Columbus GA and it was absolutely stunning. The listing photos are completely accurate but the home is even better in person - A/C set, music playing, lights on. Wonderful. Luxury of a fine hotel with very well restored antiques. Jared is a pleasure to work with and on top of it all, he and his home are pet friendly! We will definitely be back.

Historic Cajun Home with views of the sunrise and sunset!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! What a charming and relaxing place this little Cajun home in the country is. The pictures are wonderful but it is even more amazing once you drive up and enter the home. Absolutely depicts the age of the home but with a modern twist and very comfortable furniture. The shower is large and kitchen is very accommodating with all the amenities you need for a meal. It is conveniently located a few miles from downtown Lafayette with wonderful restaurants and a little charm about the city. Loved sitting on the front porch rockers listening to the wildlife in the morning and enjoying the sunset in the evening on the back. I would suggest maybe a couple of more comfortable chairs on the deck for sunset and cattle watching. I was thoroughly relaxed when we left and hope to be back to enjoy more of the city. Check-in and check-out was an ease and the house was very clean upon arrival with music playing. Absolutely loved it!!!! Thanks again for the wonderful weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review Susan! Grateful that your stay with us was so memorable. We couldn't agree more about adding comfortable chairs and currently are shopping for the perfect chairs. Hope to accomodate you again soon!
