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 Louisiana

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!

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

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.

Charming, adorable space!

  • 5 of 5

We and our two dogs stayed at The Guest Room for three nights to attend a family reunion in a nearby town. It was a great find!

It's larger than a regular hotel room, and Deborah made great use of the space. She had EVERYTHING we could possibly need, including one of those little push lights in the closet (I love those things). I liked that she prepared breakfast the day before and put it in the refrigerator for us to eat in the morning at our leisure. THAT was awesome. I think more places should do that. Her quiche was better than my mom's (I hope my mom doesn't read reviews on VRBO). She also provided lots of snacks including fruit and chocolates. (Now I feel weird for eating the strawberries and blueberries out of the container and leaving the pineapple.) The bathroom was a nice size, and I liked that the tub drained quickly. Oh, and I'm always worried that the provided hair dryer won't blow enough air out for me, but the one there certainly did.

It was unbelievably quiet which was nice. And she has shades over the windows that keep it dark in the morning which was AWESOME. And lots of beautiful plants and flowers.

Abbeville was a good location for driving into Lafayette or the other small towns in the area. And The Guest Room is centrally located to the things in Abbeville itself which meant we could walk anywhere. If we go back, we'll definitely stay here again.
