The oldest historical structure in Breaux Bridge, this French-Acadian home is the former \"Old City Hotel\" and is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. Two suites and three guest rooms with private baths and period antiques are available.
The location is excellent. The furnishings are fine and many period-like but it looks like a flea market leftover. The place is a mess but bed and bathroom clean. Our room had so many of the same items on shelves that I think it was storage. I felt like I was in a place where the owner is just unable to throw anything out and can't say no to a garage sale. When you use the bathroom you think you are in someones home, someone who has 6 or more bottles of shampoo sitting in the shower. I think when people leave things, they just stay put. There is no place, table, etc. that is not full of stuff and much of the stuff is tacky. If you are looking for tranquil setting, this is not it. If you are looking for a place where you may have to move something to sit down, this is it. There is NO breakfast. What you get is good coffee with powdered milk if needed. There are a few wrapped muffins sitting on a table. It is a place that one could stay for a month easily and fall into the relaxed slowed southern way. There is a microwave and a frig in the main kitchen but no stove, and the sink is 1/4 the size of a regular kitchen sink. The owner is nice and friendly.
My husband and I stayed here for the first part of his birthday. (We camped at a nearby state park the second night)
It was such a charming, eclectic, warm place to stay. Mary Lynn was nothing but eager to help with plans for our stay. There was some miscommunication about a certain event we planned, so make sure you double check your itinerary. Don't rely on other people for that.
I just loved the house. There are Louisiana books GALORE and plenty of places to sit and read. The back yard is beautiful--leads right down to the bayou.
We stayed in a room in the back of the house that looked right out onto the lazy bayou. We peaked at a lot of the other rooms, and they were ALL beautiful. There is a two bedroom suite, a room with a couple of twin beds, a room with a little daybed kind of room attached. They were so cool.
There was plenty of space in our room and around the whole house.
The website for this BB is NOT impressive at all, but I took a chance and booked a room anyway. I was impressed and happy I took a gamble.
We ate a Mulate's after we checked in. Got a couple of daiquiris from a drive-thru daiquiri place and relaxed in the back yard with our conversation and drinks.
Staying here was a great start for our relaxing weekend.
Go and Enjoy!
What a great place to kickback and relax before hitting the streets to party!
The hospitality is super and the "boarding house" is so quaint you will not want to leave.
Give owner Mary Lynn a call - she aims to please!
