About Jared Richard

I am Jared Richard. I have spent majority of my life in Scott, Louisiana. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree from McNeese State in Lake Charles. I enjoy cooking cajun food, enjoying wine, travel and spending time with family and friends. I am very passionate about the Louisiana & Cajun culture as you will see in The Castle. I am a firm believer in keeping old traditions alive and preserving old homes and buildings. I hope you get the opportunity to stay at The Castle and I always enjoy meeting our guest if time allows.

Why Jared Richard chose Scott

Read the Reviews! Definitely worth the stay!

What makes this house unique

The home is a perfect twist of historic structure with modern fixings. It's carefully decorated with unique pieces that connect to the Louisiana Cajun culture. It was used for the filming of the GMC Sierra commercial in 2016!

Also check out our other VRBO vacation stay - Paul's Studio located in downtown Scott at The Old Bank of Scott where I currently reside after an extensive remodel.

Best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love staying here! House is tidy and well-equipped. Gives us a great place to stay so that we can have time to relax, but still close enough to Lafayette to give us plenty of time to visit family. Jared and Robert very helpful and accommodating. Our dog loves the porches too! Thanks

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect! It had everything we could hope for and more. We loved the house, the back porch, the shower, the kitchen, the antiques -- everything! And all of our friends and family were equally impressed.

We highly recommend this house to everyone.

Many thanks!

Doug & Jennifer

This home is amazing, reminded me of my grandmother house. It made me homesick. I can't wait to book it again.

Charming home - perfect for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this wonderful home. It is conveniently located close to both Lafayette and Scott, yet far enough from town to get away from the hustle. We arrived to the sounds of Cajun music lightly playing as we entered the home. It has been beautifully restored and has so many wonderful extra touches. The home is so welcoming and a cozy. You really have the opportunity to relax and enjoy. The home is well equipped with everything you need. There is a wonderful kitchen that is fully stocked; a beautiful back porch for enjoying the sunset or cozying up to the fire pit. A true Cajun gem! We will be staying here again!

Charming cottage feel!

  • 5 of 5

This house is loaded with charm from the minute you walk in. We loved the owners decorating style which is fun and eclectic. There were stained glass windows in the bathroom, rustic wall decor, and the kitchen has a state of the art oven. Jared was very accommodating with a request we had. We would definitely stay in this house again if in the area.
