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...

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. The house has a...

I'm not a B & B type and wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. Kurt (sorry for the possible misspelling) showed us around the room & recommended an appropriate restaurant for our group, a little more lively than romantic, thank goodness. The pictures of the room (on Tripadvisor) are exactly what you get when staying. The next morning...

We stayed in the upstairs suite in the guest house. Loved the room. Also, the breakfast is fantastic. You will love the owners, Corte and Margarie. We will definitely return. I will leave a separate review of the swamp tour, but if you don't see it, I highly recommend going on the tour.

Excellent. Had very nice stay. The B&B was clean and the hosts were friendly, the breakfast was terrific. We had came there for a business trip, and all the motels were full due to some convention and we found this little bed-and-breakfast on Google.
