If you want an authentic Louisiana bayou experience you must visit the beautifully restored Maison Madeline located off the beaten track, nestled under ancient oaks and only minutes from the river and swamp. Madeline, the owner, welcomes you into her home and leads you to an upstairs bedroom, bath and living area where coffee, tea and home made treats await your arrival.The award winning restoration of the cottage is well deserved. The interior is sophisticated, eclectic, comfortable and featured in several design magazines. You'll wake to French pressed coffee and fabulous choices of home made biscuits and jam, poached eggs, granola and fresh fruit. My husband and I agree, it's one of the most charming places anywhere in the world we've visited and Madeline is a lovely and amazing woman you'll want to meet.

Do not think of staying anywhere else if you are anywhere close to Breaux Bridge.

Madeline has created the most delightful b&b from a relocated creole cottage and a creole cottage that she built. It is as charming as you can imagine and then some.

The lovely grounds are beautifully landscaped and filled with amazing sculpture. There are several areas to sit and enjoy the scenery.

We had the garconnaire--the top floor with two rooms and a bath in the center. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated with art, antiques and southern charm.

Madeleine made us excellent full breakfasts in the morning and was a welcoming and very friendly hostess. She knows all about the area and will make reservations for you for dinner or for a swamp tour.

I can hardly wait to return to this special place and to see Madeleine again.

Merci Madeleine!

Room Tip: The Garconnaire on the top floor has two special rooms and a bath in the middle. Very charming and p...

I celebrate Madelines sense of style and accomplishment in restoring and building a cajun home that is true to its heritage. I especially appreciated the claw tub, beautiful design, the aqua painted doors and the hardware.... It was an amazing experience. It was comfortable and cozy and clean. She was very hospitable and prepared a great breakfast !! If you appreciate interior design and architecture this is a must see, a visual delight and an experience worth having.

My only request would be to update the mattresses quality and trade out the full mattresses to Queens for 2 people to sleep more comfortably. But other than that it truly was a perfect bed and breakfast !!

Would we have known, we would have stayed longer. And be it only to have that great breakfast again.
The house is situated in the middle of nowhere but at the same time very close to everything. Getting to the motorway, finding a restaurant, starting a swam tour ... all that is not more than 15 minutes away.
The rooms are very homely and it feels like you are visiting dear family or friends. At the same time Madeleine is not overbearing with her attention (do you know what I mean?) so you dont feel obliged all the time.
Its amazing what Madeleine has done with the place and it needs to be mentioned that all the effort really pays off, but does not reflect in the prices.
And did I mention the breakfast? Its ... I cannot find the words. Go there and try for yourself!
