Mandeville, Louisiana
Reviewed 23 October 2016

Although we traveled less than two hours from Mandeville to Thibodaux, once we arrived at The Dansereau House it felt as though we had travelled back in time. The beauty of the home was surpassed only by the warmth of our hostess, Ms. Heidi. Architecturally, the House has been impeccably restored and maintained to reflect the attention to detail of...

Took the family to Thibodaux to show the kids where daddy grew up. Instead of staying at the usual digs with the two queen sized beds and boring atmosphere, we decided to try a bed and breakfast. The room we booked was extra large, with two full beds and a king size bed and approx. 1,200 sq ft of wide...

Hi there!, Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us! I'm glad the room was to your liking. Your kids are adorable! I"m so sorry that the buffet breakfast didn't satisfy, but I can totally understand your feelings. I see it as a learning process for me, so I deeply appreciate your feedback. Buffets are a...

Great place to stay while in Thibodaux. Beautiful home and fabulous furnishings! Great staff made us feel right at home! Close to a lot of history and sugar plantations. Don't forget to visit Ardyone Plantation!

Took a ride to Thibodaux on our motorcycles for the weekend. This is a great location and they have covered parking for your bikes. You are walking distance to several great restaurants. We plan to go back again and take a few more people with us. Heidi was a great host!

Thanx to Heidi we had a great stay. We felt welcome. The House looks like you are walking in the past but has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The rooms are big and the bed was comfortable. We would recommend it for sure.

Stayed for 2 nights in Thibodaux at the Dansereau House. Beautiful rooms in a quiet location. Nothing is too much trouble for Heidi, the new innkeeper, who prepares an excellent breakfast for guests. 3 good restaurants in easy walking distance and much to see and do in the vicinity. Highly recommended!

The first thing we noticed when we walked in the room was a very loud air conditioner. The A/C fan sounded like it was on high speed when it could have been running on low speed and would have done a better job at moisture removal. This is why I travel with ear plugs. So they lost one star for...

Perfection as a step back in time. Whether hanging out in our fabulous room or sipping a beverage on the massive porch our stay was just what we expected. If you are visiting the south you should enjoy the hospitality of the old south. Light breakfast included. Beds are comfortable and linens are nice.
