Private Folk Art Honky Tonk Rental Near Lafayette

Barn -
1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 3
Lafayette, Lafayette Parish, Louisiana
'What a amazing stay we had with Jim and Christy, who are as warm, charming, inviting and as full of rich character as the accommodations they graciously provided us! With well-collected antiques, funky, fun vintage treasures, colorful local art and decades-old reclaimed materials that they've brilliantly repurposed, Jim and Christy's place is full of heart and soul. Thank you, Jim and Christy, for warming our hearts and lightening our souls during our far too short a stay with you. As we said, your place is a destination all its own, and we hope to make it our destination again soon. - Gratefully, Amy and Mack'

About the neighbourhood
The countryside we live in is highly populated by artists and we love that we have many artists as neighbors. We have artists come up from New Orleans to get away and experience rural Acadiana and its inspiring creative energy. The Whirlybird was described in the June 2011 Issue of Southern Living Magazine by Valerie Luesse, 'Jim decided he didn't have the right gathering space for his circle of music-loving friends, so he bought an old Texaco distribution center & moved it to a secret location.' The Whirlybird is just one of 3 very old buildings that have been repurposed for cultural, vacation and educational activities.

We are the perfect outpost - a cultural crossroad.
