One of my favorite places to visit is the southern state of Louisiana. I’m so enchanted with how lush and warm it is down there and how close it is to the ocean.
I’m also fascinated by how different it is (culturally) from what I am used to.
They take their southern hospitality to heart in Louisiana – I’ve never been called “ma’am” and “sugar” in that sweet southern drawl so many times in my life! (Also never seen “grits” until we traveled through Louisiana – still not sure what those things are made of!)
Don’t even get me going on those old southern mansions!
Anyway, this cluster of historic cottages in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana caught my eye… and instantly captured my heart. Cajun Country Cottages Bed and Breakfast is located “in the heart of Cajun Country”.
The B&B consists of 5 cute little cottages on the grounds of an old Louisiana plantation. Each cottage has its own southern theme and name.
Have a look:
This is the “Evangeline“
Liking the lakeside views!
Inside the sweet Evangeline:
Every bed has a handmade quilt…
This next one is the “Little Cypress“…
It’s an Acadian-style cottage with its own dock and pier. This is the rustic one…
And then we have the “Magenta” – a former sharecropper cottage:
I love how homey and cozy this one feels (well, they all feel that way!)
The smallest of the 5 cottages is the “Playhouse“…
…it may be tiny, but it sure is adorable.
Last but not least (and perhaps my favorite) is the “Schoolhouse”
Built in 1830, this once one-room Schoolhouse from Washington, LA, appropriately named “Schoolhouse”, is a wonderful cottage with it’s 12 foot ceilings, stenciling and Americana theme.
As you may know, I have a thing for repurposed former schoolhouses.
There’s just something about those old buildings that is so appealing…
The Cajun Country Cottages is nothing less than a delightful tour through the historic cottages of the south.
(And it sure beats Motel 6!)
