About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 5)

Circa 1890, This Historic home has lots of unique character you will not see elsewhere. Consists of 12ft ceilings and all original wood floors throughout. The master bath has a large brick walk in shower with 3 shower heads. House is fully furnished including king size bed, sofa sleeper, chair twin sleeper, 6 burner Wolf range with all the cookware you can imagine. The original millwork, hardware and painted walls have been preserved. A front porch has 2 rockers great for watching the sunrise. You can also relax on the large covered wooden deck at the rear of the home that opens onto a brick laid patio. Located in peaceful area right outside Lafayette city limits but still close to everything. Amazing place for Cajun Country visitors or anyone just looking for a getaway!
