Property description

Josephine's House is a 100 year old house remodeled in 2008 with all the modern conveniences and comforts of a new house, but with all the antique charm remaining. It is well insulated and has central air and heat. The floors are 100 year old antique pine and the walls and construction are original solid cypress.
You will have the whole house and yard to yourself. It is located on a quiet residential street just 3 blocks from the historic downtown area of Breaux Bridge. The house has one room with a Queen bed and one room with two twin beds. The kitchen and utility rooms are fully equipped with everything you could need.
The back yard is big, with a swing in the oak tree and the front porch looks onto the street and has 2 rocking chairs. You can walk to the grocery store half a block away and 3 blocks away in the downtown area are 4-5 restaurants, 5-6 antique shops, 4-5 gift shops, the St. Bernard Catholic church, kayaking on the bayou, and the tourism center. If you need medical services, Lourdes After Hour Care facility and the hospital are only a mile or so from the house.
We are only 2 hours from New Orleans if you want to go on a side trip.
I keep plenty of information and brochures of things to do in the area in the house.

We are located just 2.5 blocks from Downtown Breaux Bridge, at 108 Patin St., where there are numerous restaurants, antique shops, coffee shops and gift shops. Live cajun bands perform at a lot of these places Wednesdays through Saturdays. The house is about 10 minutes from Lake Martin where you can see live alligators in their own habitat and every spring the egrets nest there by the thousands. Kayaking is available on Bayou Teche 3 blocks away. In fact you can walk all over the town and along the Bayou from the house. The Atchafalaya Basin is only 15 down the road where you can take tours of the famous basin and visit the seafood restaurants and dance places off of the levee.
