About Jared Richard
I am Jared Richard. I have spent majority of my life in Scott, Louisiana. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree from McNeese State in Lake Charles. I enjoy cooking cajun food, enjoying wine, travel and spending time with family and friends. I am very passionate about the Louisiana & Cajun culture as you will see in The Castle. I am a firm believer in keeping old traditions alive and preserving old homes and buildings. I hope you get the opportunity to stay at The Castle and I always enjoy meeting our guest if time allows.
Why Jared Richard chose Scott
Read the Reviews! Definitely worth the stay!
What makes this House unique
The home is a perfect twist of historic structure with modern fixings. It's carefully decorated with unique pieces that connect to the Louisiana Cajun culture. It was used for the filming of the GMC Sierra commercial in 2016! Also check out our other VRBO vacation stay - Paul's Studio located in downtown Scott at The Old Bank of Scott where I currently reside after an extensive remodel.

Once again, a lovely stay. Home is perfect and we will look forward to staying here again! Thank you
The house was perfect! It had everything we could hope for and more. We loved the house, the back porch, the shower, the kitchen, the antiques -- everything! And all of our friends and family were equally impressed.
We highly recommend this house to everyone.

This home is amazing, reminded me of my grandmother house. It made me homesick. I can't wait to book it again.
So glad to hear you enjoyed the home and that it brought you back memories. Thanks Denise for the great review! Come again!
Charming home - perfect for a getaway
I cannot say enough about this wonderful home. It is conveniently located close to both Lafayette and Scott, yet far enough from town to get away from the hustle. We arrived to the sounds of Cajun music lightly playing as we entered the home. It has been beautifully restored and has so many wonderful extra touches. The home is so welcoming and a cozy. You really have the opportunity to relax and enjoy. The home is well equipped with everything you need. There is a wonderful kitchen that is fully stocked; a beautiful back porch for enjoying the sunset or cozying up to the fire pit. A true Cajun gem! We will be staying here again!
Happy to hear the home and location worked out for y'all over the Easter weekend! The weather was great. We love new guests and hope y'all come back. Thank you for the wonderful review!
Charming cottage feel!
This house is loaded with charm from the minute you walk in. We loved the owners decorating style which is fun and eclectic. There were stained glass windows in the bathroom, rustic wall decor, and the kitchen has a state of the art oven. Jared was very accommodating with a request we had. We would definitely stay in this house again if in the area.
Always glad to hear our guests enjoyed the home and their stay here! Thank you so much for the great review. Come again!
WOW! What a great find!
Charming only begins to describe this lovely, beautifully restored historic home. The house is in a peaceful country setting centrally located to all of the places and events we wanted to see or attend. Zydeco tunes from the local radio station welcomed you as soon as you walked in the door. The back porch was a great place to relax with the sound of water flowing into the watering trough with goldfish. The house had everything you could need, many items that were in keeping with the era of the home. Some decor had a modern touch that blended well with the eclectic feel of the home. We will definitely stay again when back in the area.
Very excited to hear the place fit yall needs and more for the Mardi Gras stay. As always we love hearing these reviews and seeing people enjoy the home as much as we do. Thank you both very much for the gifts, how sweet of y’all!! Please do come again!
