After a long day of traveling, we recommend taking it easy and relaxing with a good book on the balcony of the B&B beneath the cool branches of the Evangeline oak. Watch the slow moving waters of the Bayou Teche flow from this historic building.
Take a stroll down the quiet sidewalks of our quaint,
historic district to visit the Acadian
Memorial Museum and Arts and Crafts shops. Cross the
street and visit the St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church,
considered the mother church of the Acadians, and the
third oldest in the State. Have dinner at one of the many
locations within 10-20 minutes from your B&B. And who
knows, you might be here when The Old Duchamp Opera house
(restored opera house) is putting on a play.
After a hearty Cajun breakfast, take the short drive to nearby New Iberia for a tour of the well known Avery Island, home of world famous Tobasco sauce. For Lunch, have boiled crawfish at one of the many seafood restaurants in New Iberia. A late afternoon visit to the Old Plantation house at "Shadows on the Teche" will surely leave a memorable impression. If you're still in the mood to go, visit the Indian reservation casino at Charington, LA.
Get an early start, and be at Lake Martin for a gorgeous
sunrise overlooking this well known bird rookery. Whether
you opt for a guided tour, or brave it alone, you're virtually
guaranteed to see most Louisiana wildlife in its natural
habitat, to include alligators and nutria! Drive 15 minutes
from here to nearby Lafayette for a tour of Vermillion
Ville and Jean Lafitte National Park. If you still
have a pep in your step at the end of the day, try a Cajun
two-step at the world famous Pont Breaux Restaurant, where
you can enjoy a great Cajun meal as well as Live Cajun
Music 7 days a week.
