The couple who owners of this b&b are precious! Coerte & Marjorie are gracious, accommodating and helpful. I loved the room it was spacious, clean & comfortable. They are dog friendly and the area was perfect for daily walks. Coerte gives Atchafalaya Basin tours and are very knowledgeable about the area & history. Breakfast was delicious!!

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!

Arcadian-style Bed & Breakfast Inn housed in 1890s Carriage House on historic Charles Mouton Plantation, dating from 1820. built by Charles Mouton (1797-1848). Charles Mouton was a son of Lafayette’s founder, Jean Mouton (1754-1834). The house and property were once part of Jean’s plantation of over 300 acres. From the moment you enter into Plantation Mouton, you will feel the essence of our underline theme. Plantation in Exile.

Upon entering the home and partaking in our welcome cajun canopy horderves and cocktails, you are greeted with ambiance and charm as our master host and grammy nominated innkeeper entertains and gives you the grand tour. From here guests are provided with custom itineraries and maps to the city and reservations are made for you. Returning from your evening, there are after dinner drinks and wine set out in the parlor to enjoy while warming by the fire. Typically we will have an outdoor old fassion jam around a few burning logs to bring together guests for a more personal experience with our innkeepers.
