The room was comfortable and the breakfast was great. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Among the other good food, they served delicious fruit. They have the tastiest grapefruit. I never liked grapefruit until I tasted theirs. I would stay there again if I were in Houma.

We stayed one night (3/18) in the Garconiere Suite. Beginning with our friendly greeting from Debbie, everything was wonderful. In the evening, we sat outside enjoying a beer and visiting with the Judge (Tim) and his assistant Chris for a couple of hours. They had great stories about the area and especially snake catching from back in the day. We... More

We had an excellent stay at the Grand Bayou Noir, which made our trip to Lousiana even more enjoyable. The house and property are both gorgeous and beautifully maintained, and the room was very pleasant as well. We enjoyed talking with the host Tim and learning about the region. Tim gave us great suggestions for restaurants and visits, and helped... More

We didn't know what to do once we were in Houma. We had only booked the 'Grand Bayou Noir' and made no more plans! Fortunately we met Tim, the owner of the guest house. When we arrived he was squeezing fresh oranges and pomelos (that we will drink and eat at the breakfast the next day!) and told us everything... More

Some friends gave us a travel section article about a B & B in Houma, La. We were not planning on going to Houma, but we changed our plans a bit and headed to Grand Bayou Noir. We arrived at an old southern mansion and we were greeted by Tim, a retired judge (he didn't look old enough to be... More

My husband and I enjoyed a one night stay in February. We were given a complimentary upgrade to the larger suite room, which was really beautiful, and much more spacious than most B&B rooms we have stayed in. The hosts were lovely, and were available if we needed them, but not at all intrusive. The estate is in a good... More

Grand Bayou Noir has a magical quality that you will feel as soon as you turn onto the circular drive. Thanks to the hospitality and generosity of hosts Debbie and Tim, you will find your stay to be memorable. My husband and I were celebrating his late November birthday. Even though Houma had already experienced several days of freezing temperatures,... More

It was my husband and I's 7 year wedding anniversary and we chose this BandB. We drove up to the property and was immediately greated by Tim the owner. He was peeling shrimp and offered us some he had boiled earlier. We stayed in the suite. It was spacious and very beautiful. The bed was so comfortable and the spa... More

From the moment we arrived Miss Debbie and Judge Tim made us feel right at home. We stayed for 4 nights in the 1 bedroom suite above the gardeners tool room. The breakfast we got every morning made by Judge Tim was fantastic, filled you up for the rest of the day so you could skip lunch or have a... More

Stayed with my wife on a romantic getaway. The master suite was open so they gave us a free upgrade to it. Hot tub out on a deck was wonderful. The live out trees are lit up at night and it was magical being out there. This one is a winner.
