About the property

Circa 1890, This Historic home has lots of unique antique character with modern style that you will not see anywhere else!! Consists of 12 foot ceilings and all original wood floors. House is fully furnished including king size bed, sofa sleeper, oversized chair with twin sleeper, 6 burner Wolf range with all the cookware you could ever need. The master bath has a large brick walk in shower. The original mill work, hardware and painted walls from 1890 have been preserved! The front porch has 2 rockers or you can relax on the large covered cypress deck with charcoal pit at the rear of the home that opens onto a brick laid patio. Located in very quiet, peaceful area right outside of Lafayette City Limits but close to everything. Amazing place for Cajun Country visitors or anyone just looking for a getaway!

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 Louisiana

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.

Beautiful home with charm and character. Enjoyable for both adults and children. Close to city life.

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you can imagine provided for you. Far above expectation. Great location in the country, but close to city living. The back patio is one of the greatest features for entertaining, waking up to in the morning, and relaxing on during the afternoon/evening hours. This beautiful home is comfortable for honeymoons, family vacations, weekend getaways, or possibly a great place to stay during a business trip. The charm in this house is incredible, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past week.

Needed a quiet and restful place ...and found it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just the place for quiet and romantic time with the hubs after a few months of hard work and long days. Papa callais gave us tickets to garth brooks and triaha yearwood and we made a weekend of it at this amazingly peacefull and revitalizing home in Scott, La. close to lafayette yet worlds apart. Authentic 1890's home with antiques, lots of character, and a great back porch. Slept well and breathed easy during our 3 days. Inspiration for our next, downsized home. Great job jared and rob. U rocked the renovation!!

One of the best.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best vacation homes we have rented. The house is very well appointed and maintained and Jared is a great guy. We stayed for only two nights but could have spent a week there and used it as a base to explore from.

Great place to have a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a lovely and quiet neighborhood with two porches to enjoy. There's a great kitchen stocked with everything you need to make a meal . The king bed was very comfortable, the towels in the bath thick and the shower has three heads! The furnishings through out the house are very inviting. I would definitely come back to this property.
