Perfect guest cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable, upscale cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Beautiful and private back yard to enjoy morning coffee. The owners were there if you needed them but not intrusive in any way. The neighborhood was lovely for morning walks. Would definitely stay here again. Perfect for 2 people.

Lafayette Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This place is GREAT! It is a very cozy little garden cottage, extremely well decorated and located in a quiet neighborhood. This is the nicest accommodations we've found through VRBO. It is very well appointed with high quality EVERYTHING, from the appliances to the towels. The kitchen was stocked with many of the basics (spices, water, soda) and had the basics if we'd decide to cook. Everything was impeccably clean.

We very much enjoyed the Lafayette area as it was our first time there. We toured the Tabasco plant and enjoyed the cuisine but especially the Cajun Food Tour and have recommended that to several people.

We recommend this cottage to couples and not really families with young children. It is smaller than many of the condos we've rented through VRBO.

The best part are Christen and Edwin. They made us feel very much at home and like friends and certainly NOT customers. They are quick with suggestions of places to go when we asked, and very attentive to anything we might need. They provided REAL southern hospitality, at least in the eyes of these Yankees.

We have already recommended this to friends we know travel to Louisiana. If we travel back that way (and we hope to), this will certainly be our first choice.

I was in love with it from the moment I walked in the door ♡

  • 5 of 5

I was in need of a getaway after the recent death of my mother. I am from Branson and had never been to Louisiana. I booked my stay very last minute and was very pleased with Ed & Christian and the hospitality they provided. I will definitely stay here again if ever in the area.

Owner's Response: This sweet couple was a joy to visit with. Full of laughter and hugs with a generous share of happiness to enjoy. Exceptionally clean and left the cottage in immaculate condition. Would enjoy having them back anytime.
