Cajun Bed & Breakfasts
If you are planning a trip to Cajun Country and are looking to get the full experience, don’t settle for just any hotel. Consider making yourself cozy at one of the few bed and breakfasts in the area. What better way to experience genuine Cajun hospitality and delicious breakfast?
Louisiana Cajun Mansion – Located in Youngsville, LA, this bed and breakfast is just a skip away from all the fun that the surrounding Lafayette area has to offer. Cajun Mansion provides a variety of suites to choose from and ways to personalize your stay as well as your adventures while in town.
They also offer the unique chance to camp in style; what they like to call “glamour camping” or “glamping.” “Glamping” takes regular camping to a whole new level with air conditioned tents, thick air mattresses, and electricicity!
T’Frere’s – This century old Acadian style home is in the heart of Lafayette, and has eight rooms to choose from for your stay. At T’Frere’s, they want you to feel as if you are at home. All guests are welcome to have free roam of the parlor, kitchen, garden, dining room, porch, and courtyard.
Rumor has it, T’Frere’s is also haunted. So, if you are looking for a great place to stay and maybe even a little thrill, this is the bed and breakfast for you!
Maison de Memoire – Just 15 minutes from Lafayette, this private property houses the most adorable Cajun Cottages perfect for a romantic getaway or a cozy stay. Each cottage has a full kitchen, bath, bedroom, and parlor. It is like staying in a mini-house with breakfast delivered to your door each morning!
Feel free to relax on your personal porch or even grab a swing by the private lake.
Bois des Chenes – Interested in Plantation homes? Consider staying at Bois des Chenes. This original plantation home survived the civil war and has been restored to its natural Acadian style beauty. Each part of the home is full of period antiques as well as modern day pieces tastefully blended together to create the perfect Acadian Country style.
The Savoy Bed & Breakfast – This B&B is located in Scott, LA just 10 minutes outside of Lafayette. This small operation is full of big heart and hospitality. Savoy’s has a guest room in the main house as well as a cottage for their guests to choose from. If you are considering eating your way through The Boudin Trail, this might just be the perfect place for you.
Visiting Cajun Country is always a wonderful experience, but adding one of these B&Bs to your trip could make all the difference. There is no better way to get that personal Cajun hospitality full of “joi de vivre” or “joy of living.” Plus, who doesn’t love a home cooked breakfast?
