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

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.

WOW! What a great find!

  • 5 of 5

Charming only begins to describe this lovely, beautifully restored historic home. The house is in a peaceful country setting centrally located to all of the places and events we wanted to see or attend. Zydeco tunes from the local radio station welcomed you as soon as you walked in the door. The back porch was a great place to relax with the sound of water flowing into the watering trough with goldfish. The house had everything you could need, many items that were in keeping with the era of the home. Some decor had a modern touch that blended well with the eclectic feel of the home. We will definitely stay again when back in the area.

The House Was Faboulous

  • 4 of 5

This is exactly what I needed. The house was very nice. Rural atmosphere.

everything we needed was at our finger tips. I was however disappointed that the house was 2 hours away from our event. This was a very serious error on VRBO not the owner.

Perfect Cajun Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the best weekend at The Castle. We got in late on Friday night, and we went straight to dinner at Saint Street Inn, which is about 15 minutes away from the house. The service and atmosphere was great, and I was very impressed with the seasonal menu -- the stuffed quail was excellent. On Saturday morning, we went into Lafayette to the farmer's market, and we had a wonderful time--great breads, homemade jams, kombucha, and bar-b-que. Plus, there is a beautiful park you can walk through after you finish with the market. In the afternoon, we went kayaking on Lake Martin, which is about 35 minutes away from the house -- very relaxing. Saturday night we ate at Social and went to the Fright Trail, which was a lot of fun and very well done. Best of all, we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere the Castle provided. Very quiet, perfectly decorated, great back porch, and nice kitchen for cooking! We felt right at home, and we will certainly be back.
