Something about staying at some history. What a gracious couple. Real southern hospitality. Old plantation house. I think if the walls could talk... We didn't go in the swamp tours but here he does an amazing job

This place is beautiful, clean, welcoming, warm and the service is beyond words! The experience we've had here we will never forget. Breakfast was amazing. We had the best homemade waffles. Def. recommend it to anyone looking for a different southern experience. Thank you to this family for sharing their lovely home with us😊

We stayed for 3 nights at Bois des Chenes. The owners Coerte and Marjorie was great hosts. I might also add that Marjorie also makes an awesome breakfast. We had a great time chatting with Coerte and Marjorie, they make you feel like family

This is without a doubt the most charming B&B in Louisiana and the Gulf area. Your hosts, Coerte and Marge Voorhies, are the warmest, most hospitable, and charming hosts a guest could possibly want. The breakfast was true pain perdu with a Cajun twist (no spoiler here). The house is that of Lt. Gov. Charles Mouton, a lovingly kept Acadian... More

One of the highlights of our trip was the two mornings spent at the breakfast table listing to stories and meeting interesting people from around the world. Breakfast was terrific. The hosts could not be more accommodating to us especially with our dog,Thor. Before we left we felt like family and would love to return again.

My husband surprised me with a visit to this wonderful B&B to celebrate our anniversary. Full disclosure: I am not a morning person; but Margorie's delicious down-home gourmet breakfasts and Coerte's enlightening, amusing stories and swamp tour were well worth my effort. You will love it!

Staying with Coerte and Marjorie was one of those rare moments in life when the entire experience enhances your own life. We have stayed in ancient French chateaux, noblemen's apartments in southern Italy and even stately homes which have been turned into hotels in England and this experience was on a par with all of those.

“We've always stayed in the carriage house upstairs, & absolutely love how comfortable, clean, cool, quiet, & quaint it is! Quite a large room that can sleep 5. Has a huge, double-sink bathroom, shower in bathtub, with a mini-frig. Good places to eat @ all prices not too far.”
