Located in the heart of downtown Abbeville is St. Charles Cottage, Abbeville's newest B&B property. Originally built in the 1940s, it has been recently renovated and is the perfect setting for a relaxing/romantic getaway. Upon entering the cottage, our guests step onto a simply inviting front porch that beckons them to stay for awhile. The living area of 1100 plus sq. ft. offers a living room, kitchen/dining room combination, a bedroom, bath w/shower and a spacious dressing room. We hope that you will want to share with us the ambiance of our Cajun Culture.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Debbie made sure we had everything we needed. ♥️ AAA+++
The house is very well maintained. Spotless clean. The bed was very comfy. We were very pleased and hopefully we will stay there again in the future since we have relatives in the area. Thank you for everything Debbie!
A wonderful weekend in a wonderful place!
We were greeted by Mrs. Garrot as soon as we drove up with a hug and then a tour of the house. It is a precious place with everything you need to live for the week. We enjoyed the area restaurants and the hospitality of the people of Abbeville. I recommend this place to everyone!!!
A perfect cottage in every way
St. Charles Cottage was the perfect get-away B&B! Upon arriving, we were greeted by Debbie and knew our stay would be everything we had hoped for. The decor was exquisite, warm and inviting and had a certain charm to it. Debbie had thought of everything from personal care items to bathrobes, to a well stocked refrigerator. And each morning she would bring the newspaper and some fresh pastries for our enjoyment. We could not have asked for a more helpful person as she gave us suggestions for our stay in Abbeville as well as other places we would be traveling to in the days to follow. This B&B is a real treasure.
Charming, comfortable cottage in great location!!
My husband and I recently spent two nights in the St. Charles cottage in Abbeville, LA, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is beautifully furnished, with a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, and lovely linens. Our hostess, Debbie, was very gracious and helpful, even mailing us brochures to help us plan our trip. The location is great, within walking distance of downtown and restaurants. You’ll love this cottage!
Delightful & Charming
From the moment we arrived, we were delighted with our choice. We could not believe how enjoyable our visit was about to become. We were met by our Host Louis, who welcomed us into his old office !! and a few moments later , his wife Debbie arrived ,who was the most charming and effervesant hostess you could possibly like to meet. The charming Office space has been converted into a more than just a B&B.a mini home ... IT had everything you could imagine,, in fact the kitchen was equally well equipped as most homes, except for a dish washer.. Debbie had the refrigerator filled many delightful goodies, plus every morning a "fairy" dropped öff the daily paper together with fresh donuts !. And the bed was extremely comphy ! The only item that could have been added was a washer and dyer. we had been travelling for several days and that would have been appreciated ....anybody who stays will not be disappointed with charming cottage
We will return on our next trip to the USA .
A perfect getaway!
My wife and I chose the St. Charles Cottage as our home base for attending the Lafayette Festival International. The Cottage is located on the edge of downtown Abbeville, a quiet Loiusianna town about 20 minutes southwest of Lafayette and 2.5 hours west of New Orleans. It's a beautifully updated and furnished house that was absolutely perfect for our needs. It's comfortable, homey, and just the right size for two. The kitchen is full sized and well appointed, the linens luxurious, the bed large and comfortable, and the large dressing room is a nice touch. Our favorite feature, though, was the breezy front porch, which was the perfect place for morning coffee or evening cocktails. Debbie, the owner, was friendly without being intrusive. She had stocked the refrigerator and kitchen for us before our arrival and kindly delivered the local newspaper to the porch every morning. If there was a negative to the Cottage, it was that it was so pleasant that it was difficult to get up and out in the mornings. We just wanted hang around! We recommend the St. Charles Cottage without reservation.
Our guests are drawn to Abbevillians' friendly nature, enjoy delicious cuisine, and appreciate Abbeville's central location. Surrounding us are the marshlands of Pecan Island, the incredible gardens of Jefferson and Avery Islands, toe tapping Cajun and Zydeco music and more. Our cuisine is like none other, especially boiled crawfish in season, oysters, shrimp and other seafood from the nearby Gulf of Mexico. For Bird Enthusiasts, Avery and Jefferson Islands and Lake Martin are a must, as well as Cameron Parish's Creole Nature Trail. For Adventurists, a tour with Champagne's Swamp Tours is informative and enjoyable. These are only a few of our highlights.
We host 3 Festivals each year - - The Daylily Festival in June, The Cattle Festival in October and The Giant Omelet Celebration in November.
If you are attending a wedding in Abbeville, we are in walking distance of Abbeville United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church, First Presbyterian Church, St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Magdalen Square, Magdalen Place and The Caldwell House, as well as several reception areas. We are located just a couple of blocks from Vincent Funeral Home for those out of town family members and/or friends who wish to pay their last respects to a loved one.
Abbeville, the Heart of Cajun Country, is only a heartbeat away from destinations that are the heart and soul of South Louisiana.
It is my sincere wish to provide a "home away from home atmosphere" and share the warmth and hospitality of our people and culture with each of you. Debbie Garrot, Owner
