I was traveling with a friend and stayed two nights. I had a room in the house, my friend had a suite in the extension. Our host, Tim ('the judge') is a character: hospitable (chatty, free drinks) and an outstanding cook. Two of the best breakfasts I have ever had: excellent fresh fruit, awesome French toast, local sausage, delightful omelette...

February 20-23, 2017. We decided to spend time in South Louisiana because we have visited all the cities on the I-10 corridor, but never ventured south of it. After researching all the B&B's along U.S. Hwy 90 in South Louisiana, we decided to stay here for the first three nights of our vacation. We are truly glad we did. The...

We have friends in Houma who booked us a night here during our week long trip. So far it's been the best part. The suite was so comfortable and private. The hot tub outside the room...a great touch. The property is exquisite. Our friends joined us for breakfast and Chris very kindly treated all of us like family. I cannot...

Four of us received a warm welcome & a cold beer, then a tour of the beautiful garden. Tim & staff were very busy, but took time to carry our bags up and visit with us. Breakfast was fresh fruit, juice, delicious bread, flan, sausage from Jacob's, and Tim's super pain perdu, artfully presented. They present all that's charming about...

This B&B is everything that you want in a B&B.... beautiful house and grounds, lovely rooms with antiques and comfy furniture, WiFi, TV and all that, and, of course, yummy and generous breakfasts. But the very best part was the owners - what a couple of hot tickets - really! They were fun, interesting and down to earth and above...

Having spent three days at Grand Bayou Noir (GBN) in the secluded and well-appointed suite, my wife and I would thank Tim and Debra for their genuine hospitality in being treated like family and old friends. The house and gardens provided an idyllic venue for surprising culinary experiences. Breakfasts were a delight, fruit followed by a cooked plate washed down...

Here comes the judge! After driving through an endless downpour on I-10, we were met at the door by retired judge Timothy Ellender. What a relief and what a welcome! He and his artistic wife, Debbie, have created an oasis of southern hospitality in the middle of Cajun country. It is a large and beautiful, old home with antique furnishings,...

Spent one night at the Grand Bayou and just wish it could have been longer. From the moment we arrived we could not have been made to feel more welcome. The property is stunning, set in lush vegetation, the perfect distance from New Orleans for exploring the Bayou and plantations. This place cannot come highly recommended enough, just make sure...

Absolutely charming. Mr. Timmy is a wonderful and charming host, and he can serve up a breakfast that included grapefruit that he picked himself that morning. His beautiful home is surrounded by lush vegetation and stately live oak. There's also an outdoor hot tub to take away the tensions of the day. Our room was comfortable and clean. Would definitely...
