Maison des Amis
Reviewed 2 April 2016

Its a charming old historic home that has been restored, and includes nice antique furnishings and art work. The grounds were very nice and we enjoyed the rocking chairs on the gazebo down by the water. The few disappointments were that aside from the housekeeper, who was friendly and helpful, there is no resident/owner there to meet and talk with ( this personal contact is usually something I enjoy in Bed and Breakfast lodging, which gives you a more personal sense of place , along with recommendations for area attractions, dining, travel routes etc.) We were also disappointed that the much touted Cafe d Amis was closed for the period we were there. I was looking forward to eating their celebrated cuisine. Parking is a little strange, but workable. All in all a worthwhile stay; and I would probably return.

Room Tip: If part of your reason for staying here includes eating at the cafe d amis; try to get info on their...

We stayed for one night, on a three week road trip and it was my favourite night's accommodation of the whole three weeks. Breaux Bridge itself hasn't got a huge amount to offer, but we spent the afternoon of our arrival sitting in the garden under a pergola next to the bayou, with complimentary soft drinks provided in the communal kitchen. The kitchen has a fridge, coffee maker and a book of photos showing the renovation of this old building.
Yes, it is an old building, and so creaks a bit and not everything is pristine, but this is why we loved it, and our room was clean and beautifully furnished. A lovely change from the run of the mill chain motels. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.

Room Tip: We loved Room 1

I stayed three nights in room #2. I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the room and the neglected appearance of the grounds. The motivation for this review, however, was the fact that the website for Maison des Amis represented that a full breakfast was included, when all that was provided was a $10 voucher for a local restaurant. The voucher was insufficient to cover the entree items on the restaurant menus. So, for a typical full breakfast (coffee, juice, entree) that cost $17, I had to cover the difference. The disparity between what is represented on the website and what the proprietor actually provides has been reported to the owner.

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.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 have a private bathroom in the room. 3 and 4 have their own bathrooms but they aren...

......overpriced. We had no interaction with hosts at all. It was a Friday night and we were only guests. We were a bit put out at the lack of a cup of coffee in the morning. If you spend $140 on a room, you at least expect to get a cup of coffee! The common area was locked up tight, though the flyer left with our key indicated coffee would be available. Don't expect to get breakfast on Saturday morning unless you are willing to wait. Cafe Amis was hopping with a zydeco band, and it was so jammed there were no tables. We went to Buck and Johnny's instead. Not having the ""free" breakfast made the price even less of a value. Will probably stay elsewhere next time...
