My husband and I were looking for a nice, quiet B&B to celebrate our 29th anniversary. Came across this on TripAdvisor and we're so glad we did. Perfect! Quaint, nicely furnished, extremely clean and so, so quiet! Well needed R&R too.

Our stay at Susan's Cottages couldn't have been better!!! We arrived at 4:00 pm, check-in is between 3:00 - 6:00 pm. (with option to arrange for late check-in) Smiling faces greeted us at the door! We checked in and were off to the room in no time. The Main House is located across the street from the Cottages, it was... More

Unfortunately we did not arrive until after 11 p.m. There were two "Susan's Cottages" signs on opposite sides of the highway. We pulled into the one we came to first, drove down a long driveway and ended up in what seemed like someone's home. So we went to the next sign. We drove past several cottages looking for "the Carriage... More

Because I had little time to travel, I chose to celebrate my anniversary somewhere near home. From the website, I thought that the cottages would be perfect for me, and that they were. We checked in, and that was it. My husband and I had a quiet evening to ourselves. We stayed in the Gardeners Cottage where we enjoyed dinner... More

My wife and I can't get away for an overnight trip often, so we leave our kids with someone in town and head to Susan's Cottages. It's quite, near a bayou and goats and has an AMAZING, romantic set of cottages. It doesn't have breakfast but who cares about eating when you have the love of your life nearby.

The room was clean, and the property was pleasant. But the breakfast was junk food, and the coffee maker had mold. For the price of the room, the quality of food could have been much better. If you are health conscious, or looking for a cooked breakfast, this will not be the place for you.

This was a very quiet, nice and peaceful area. The cottage was very cozy and clean. I was disappointed that there was not internet service nor coffee for breakfast. Overall this was a very nice overnight stay.

The rooms really are a lovely as they appear in the photos on the website. We stayed in the Sweetheart room, one of two in the Carriage House, but no one was in the other room, so we had total privacy. We strolled along the bayou at the back of the property and took photos of the ducks swimming among... More

We stayed at the Rose Cottage of Susan's Cottages for a night on our way home this week. It is an exceptionally nicely furnished and cleanly kept place. That said, the TV is small (24 inch?) and across the room (15 to 20 ft.) from the bed and chairs, which makes viewing difficult. There was no internet wireless connection available,... More

May be the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Obviously the owner has a lot of pride in her property. Very nice country setting as well. I stayed in the carriage house which was not as big as the cabins but it was lovely. Great bed. Great breakfast (self serve in room but that was fine). Super furnishings. One small... More
