C'était merveilleux de rencontrer un si beau couple de le sud de la france. Le Seigneur m'a béni lorsque j'ai rencontré ces deux personnes extraordinaires qui ont un tel goût pour la vie. Hou la la! Je remercie le Seigneur de les avoir envoyés à La Petite Voie de Sainte Thérèse. Je parle le français cajun; pourtant, nous avons pu converser les uns avec les autres. J'aurais vraiment souhaité qu'ils puissent rester plus longtemps dans le pays cajun; Cependant, ils se dirigeaient vers la Nouvelle-Orléans et d'autres lieux fascinants du Good Old USA. Je resterai toujours en contact avec René et Martine et qu'ils avoir une longue vie pleine de santé et de bonheur. Thank you to the Holy Spirit for having sent these two beautiful people in my life. I am truly blessed to be able to share my Faith and Cajun Hospitality with such a wonderful happy and loving couple. Bien Merci from the bottom of my heart!! May you continue to be healthy and happy. .

If you are in cajun country and need a place to stay, you will not be disappointed with La Petite Voie de St. Therese! What a beautiful home! It is warm and welcoming, peaceful and quite. Miss Emmaline, our hostess, took to us right away and treated us like out of town family. She went out of her way to make sure we had all we needed and suggested amazing sights to see! We came in late and she had sandwiches and carrot cake waiting in the fridge for us. We cannot wait to come back and stay again. Thank you so much Miss Emmaline. Bless you! xoxo

This is the best Cajun home we have rented in in the 15 years we have visited "Cajun Country"! Emmaline is the perfect host and has spent many years restoring this wonderful place. Among the best features: great rural location, authentic furnishings, large wrap-around porch, completely stocked kitchen, very fresh and clean and air conditioning! We will definitely stay here on all future trips to the area.

It certainly was my pleasure to host such wonderful people from the Trip advisor family. I immediately was taken in by their smiles, and "La Petite Voie de St. Therese" was also graced by their presence. I was so impressed with the fact that my Carrot Cake went all the way to Washington. I am looking forward to have them over for lunch again. Bien Merci (Thank You) and have a Blessed 4th of July.

Le Petite Voie de St. Therese was a highlight of our road trip from Dallas to New Orleans. Part of our 2 month holiday from Australia it was a welcome break from hotel stays. Our children loved the open space to run around and Emmaline made us feel more than welcome. Great location to access the Bayou and Beaux Bridge. Thank you Emmaline for sharing your beautiful home with us. Ben, Ann, Mia & Lachlan

It was my delight to have the pleasure of your beautiful family, and you were the first family from Australia that were guest at my home. Your children are adorable, and I enjoyed hearing your Australian Accent. I want to wish you a "Happy Easter", and forever happiness and good health. Emmaline from Cajun Country

I found this wonderful property on VRBO. We were traveling to the area for a wedding. We are a family of 4 traveling with a 5 year old and 14 year old. Ms Emmaline is the perfect host, it was great to finally meet and everyone got a hug. I cannot imagine choosing to stay in a hotel if ever in this area, this property was perfect. From the moment we pulled in the driveway after a day and a half of driving we felt at home, relaxed, at ease with room to spread out and a homemade german chocolate cake for us on the kitchen table and fresh milk in the fridge no less! Our 1st night a lovely summer storm blew threw and I slept like a baby, in fact every night, everyone slept wonderfully. It was the most relaxed and at peace I have felt in years . The master bedroom and bath are just stunning, they dont make houses like this anymore, beautiful wood floors and woodwork, tall doorways, french doors, just a beautiful space, not lacking any modern convenience. Our whole family cannot recommend this property enough, everyone wants to go back, just to stay at this home. Dont hesitate, we now fully understand and felt the phrase "Southern Hospitality" while at La Petite Voie de St Therese, tell Ms Emmaline we say hi!

Emmaline has thought of everything to make a stay in her charming home comfortable and enjoyable. What a pleasure to arrive to an open door and take the time to discover the different rooms. We particularly enjoyed the location between the I-10 and Avery Island, the close proximity to the bayou and surrounding small towns. I was transported to another time and appreciated hearing French spoken as well as learning about the Cajun culture. I would certainly return to this lovely spot. We especially thank Emmaline for her warm and generous hospitality. Evelyn and Bill

Ms Emmailine's Acadian Home stay was wonderful. The location is a very nice Acadian home, fully furnished with all the amenities one needs for a wonderful visit to the Acadian area. The location is easily accessible to the entire region and close to Lake Martin. We spent more than a week at this nice home and had everything we need. The added value includes Ms Emmaline's knowledge of the area. As a livelong resident, she can direct you to anything in the area. It was like going into someone's home instead of a house. She is also a wonderful host. We believe anyone who stays at Ms Emmaline's will have a very enjoyable stay. You know you have picked the right place when you arrive as she is there waiting for you with the key and to show you the nice home. Can't wait to go back.
