Relax in Cajun Country

  • 5 of 5

A delightful property and an easy walk downtown. Deborah and I didn't meet until the morning of check out due to my late arrival and busy schedule. Not a problem, we were in touch by text messaging. The refrigerator was well stocked with water, yogurt and tasty quiche for breakfast. I would stay here again.......Tom

Charming apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a very lovingly decorated and appointed apartment. Deborah has clearly put her heart into it, and provided everything you need - including some really great breakfast items. The refrigerator is stocked with what I assume are homemade mini-quiches, yogurt, orange juice, bananas, etc. Although not a bed and breakfast, it almost felt like it.

Speaking of beds, the mattress was excellent, which is a 'must' for us.

Deborah wasn't intrusive but checked in occasionally to see if we needed anything, and if we did, it appeared quickly. She's a great hostess.

There are just two reasons I did not give this five stars. One, the house sits on a main street through the town of Abbeville. Morning rush hour can get a little noisy. If you like to sleep in, take some ear plugs. If you like to get up and at it early, no problem.

Two, although the thought and care put into the decor is amazing, it's kind of crowded, especially for guys. My husband, who is tall but slender, felt very constrained. There was just a little too much furniture for the space, and it didn't seem that it was all necessary. In fact, if you wanted to use the pull out couch for two additional people, it looked like it would be very difficult.

But if you are traveling in this area, I think it would be hard to find a more lovely or comfortable place to stay. Check it out.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding, and this was a wonderful place to stay. Close to church and downtown. Lots of great restaurants and things to do in the neighborhood. Loved that the place was decorated for Christmas, especiallly the huge poinsettia bush beside the property. Very nice and accommodating owner, as well. Thank you!

Perfect launching pad for Acadian tour

  • 5 of 5

My stay at The Guest House in Abbeville far exceeded my already high expectations. This charming suite is comfortable and well curated, nestled in a lovely town with a kind host. I was visiting family and sites spread between Lafayette, Baton Rouge and Morgan City. This is a wonderful location...even just to browse the historic little town itself: great food, people and homes. Deborah was attentive but never pestering. What a marvelous renovation (including landscaping!) she has competed on this beautiful property. I never lacked for a thing, plus enjoyed thoughtful extras, like chocolates, bath scrubs and even treats for my canine travel partner! I would stay again and recommend to anyone passing through.

Very clean, excellent value and tremendous owner.

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a concert in Lafayette and also wanted to go to Avery Island. Abbeville is located half way between the two so it was ideal for our stay. Debra was excellent and took care of all our requests. This is a relatively new venture for her and she is the type of person you feel good about supporting.. We enjoy the bed and breakfast experience so we were very pleased.

About owner/property manager

I am outgoing, never meet a stranger. Love the Cajun country and decided to make it my home years ago because of the hospitality in this area!!

I am a southern girl from Mobile, Alabama ! I love the south and can direct you on your travels to fun places!!

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2004

Why owner/property manager chose Abbeville

Since young I admired Victorian homes and wished down deep that one day I would buy one, restore it and have a BnB! This home is almost 100 years old! I love the character of Victorian homes.

What makes this house unique

Yes, this is a BnB but unique to others. I have a private entrance for my guest. The breakfast and snacks are in your room when you arrive. In the morning you are on your on schedule not the facility's schedule. You can have breakfast when you choose in your PJ'S. It is a romantic atmosphere but homey!

Guestbook comments from the owner
