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.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was secluded but close enough to everything in Lafayette we wanted to do. The property was well kept with great amenities. Great for a romantic weekend which we were looking for. We would highly recommend this house for someone looking to stay in this are. We will definitely be back!

Property is lovely!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely adore the home and furnishings. It was quiet and cozy and the shower wonderful. Clean and comfortable.

The mattress was a bit uncomfortable, but I have a bad back.

Overall, Jared was incredible to work with.

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.

Many thanks!
