About the property

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!

If you are looking for a place in the Lafayette/Scott area for any reason, look no further. "Book-it, Danno!" The girls and I fell in love with The Castle before we even opened the front door, and from then on we were crazy in love!! Let me throw a few adjectives out there: Clean, neat, well-appointed, well-maintained, charming, spacious, comfortable, warm, inviting, lovely, delightful, fun... I could go on and on and on. That stove... and that SHOWER!?! Robert and his family (and friends) were just as friendly and helpful as could be, promptly responding to my request on how to light the fire pit (by coming over to personally show us)! We may very well have found a permanent spot for our annual girls' weekend if for no other reason than to stay at The Castle. Since this was a girls' weekend where we planned ahead to hole-up and cook all weekend, we only ate out once: Brunch at French Press in downtown Lafayette on Sunday. Very nice and highly recommended.

As we said in the book, "Big love from Texas!" Thanks again, guys!!!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved The Castle. There wasn't one thing we would have asked to be different. The decor was wonderful. The kitchen was very well done. It was like a home away from home. We will definitely be back!

The Castle

The Castle is very nice place. It's convenient to everything that we wanted to do. It's a quiet location. Would definitely recommend it and would stay there again.

relaxed

  • 5 of 5

enjoyed our stay near lafayette la! We were in the country but less than 10 minutes to downtown lafayette.

The home is an incredible remodeled cottage with all amenities provided: WIFI, cable, Wolf range, washer/dryer and a great country - cajun radio station was tuned in upon our arrival.Dishes are washed by hand:)

Furnishings are often of vintage or antique style and clever attention has been made for placement of decorative items thru this home.

There is a huge back porch deck and also an open fire pit for plenty of people.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! Well stocked with everything we needed--towels, cookware, dishes, etc., but not cluttered. It was clean and quiet and had a lot of antique charm, but with all the modern amenities. Mornings in the front porch rockers were heavenly. Enjoyed watching the cows and eastern bluebirds from the back porch (wooden benches are nice and sturdy.). Close to Lafayette but far enough away to feel rural. We enjoyed this historic home and look forward to staying here again. Thanks for allowing well-behaved pets!
