We were warmly welcomed by the charming hostess in this incredible historic house where the rooms are big and the beds are comfortable and where breakfast is just wonderful.
We even had chandeliers in our bathroom!

Thank you

My wife and I stayed for two days in the Evangeline Room. Accommodations were very comfortable. The house is beautiful and it is worth the time to stroll through and look for some details that might otherwise go unnoticed. Breakfast was very good! On our second day we met a young couple from France and enjoyed speaking with them at breakfast. Linda was very pleasant, knowledgeable about the area, and attentive to our needs. The second floor wrap-around porch was a unique feature and a nice place to watch the sun rise!

This bed and breakfast was the most unwelcoming place we have stayed in for years. We arrived in mid afternoon and a woman called Linda handed us an envelope with two keys, a receipt for $259 for one night’s bed and breakfast and a page of rules about breakfast. No one else was about but there was no offer to show us to the room or explain how anything worked. We took ourselves up to an overfurnished but impractical room.
Two coat hangers in the closet, nothing to put your suitcase on to unpack and a mis matched bathroomsuite of a white basin and lavatory and a ghastly avocado coloured plastic shower cubicle with curtain. Two plastic beakers stood on a side table wrapped in plastic.
After about 25 minutes a couple arrived and came up the stairs alone to the room opposite.
Having read the breakfast instructions, see the photograph below, I texted Linda to say that I did not eat sweet things but my husband would like some fruit and we both drank tea.
At 9 am we presented ourselves as directed. A single guest was sat at one end of a large table with an elderly and not totally clean cloth. A side table held numerous small packets of coffee, tea, half and half, a coffee machine and a kettle, it all looked very cheap and nasty.
No cereal, no toast or bakery items. I made us two cups of tea and asked for some milk, I was told there was coffee mate, half and half or almond milk.
A plate was placed in front of me containing 3 strips of bacon and two baked lumps of dough about the size of limes which we were told contained meat and cheese. It was a poor sad offering and tasted as nasty as it looked.
Nothing else was offered, no toast no preserves,spreads or cheese,Linda remained out of sight.
The single woman guest had the same plate of sad food.
Checkout was said to be at 11. We came downstairs at about 10.45 and found the house completely empty, we went through all the rooms to try and return the keys and say goodbye. There was no one about so with some trepidation we left the keys on a side table and let ourselves out.
What a joyless and expensive stay.

Susan, We discussed this ad nauseam in email. And now your diatribe continues here. The facts are: You and your husband ate every morsel on your plates. The single lady at breakfast requested to be seated away from you. I did not ask her any questions, I simply honored her request to move her to the far end of the table. She too ate all of her food and even returned the next day for more. We offer a large assortment of creams, sugars and condiments as well as assorted jellies on the side table in the dining room.. Breakfast is baked fresh. We do not have processed prepackaged bakery items. We do have cereal available upon request. I had 2 other couples arriving on the day you checked in. I remain downstairs until all of my guests arrive. As I explained in email, I am the only staff on duty at check in and breakfast. I do not hover over my guests while they are trying to enjoy a relaxing breakfast. I am in the next room and available should my guests require anything else. I heard you leaving. Your car alarm went off twice. I have apologized to you in email for missing your departure. But after your angry outburst over not having cows milk at breakfast, I thought it best to give you your space. Respectfully, Linda

Lovely home, attentative staff but the breakfast was a complete disappointment. Everything unhealthy from a freezer. It was a terrible disappointment and ruined the visit. If you plan to go, call ahead and negotiate for real food and not the freezer junk we experienced. If management improved this aspect of the stay, it would improve their ratings significantly.

My own practice. Streamed my Gaia TV account on my phone Didn't bring a mat but they have the recycled decking so no splinters. Not much to do in Thibodaux but we had a very relaxing time.;
