If you are expecting a sparkling, brand new B and B with a proprietor doting over your every need, this is not the place for you. However, if you are interested in a beautifully renovated(check out the before and after photos!) Cajun cottage on Bayou Teche, then give it a try. Yes, the owners live in Maryland...seriously. However, the housekeeper and her husband are available by phone. Upon arrival to room #2(Lemelle), the key was under the mat with the $10 breakfast vouchers. The room was clean and rustic with a pretty antique four poster bed. After grabbing some waters from the community kitchen, we spent the afternoon in rocking chairs on the gazebo over looking the bayou. It was glorious. The breakfast routine on a Saturday morning is: get in line at Cafe Des Amis by 7:30 AM to insure a seat which is family style. The doors open at 8 AM and there is a $5 cover per person for the band. The voucher will probably not cover your breakfast and the food is not great but it's really about the experience. If you just want breakfast, the other restaurant that honors the voucher is down the street. The location can't be beat. The town is not big, everything is within walking distance. Check out the cemetery next to the church. Just remember, this is an old,creaky building and you can hear your neighbors walking around.
