Great plantation-feel home, quiet, clean, very laid back. Beautiful old oak trees mixed with palm trees, felt like a Key West mansion. Drinks on the patio, grits and smoked peppered bacon for breakfast. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and helpful.

We had the pleasure of staying 4 days at the gorgeous home of Tim and Debbie's in Bayou country. Tim is an extraordinary force of nature. Having served over 30 years as the Judge in Houma he knows the history and stories of the land. The home they live in is the home where Tim was born and raised. It... More

Beautiful, comfortable old(ish) house in the heart of Cajun country. When we arrived, owners Tim & Debbie were eating (and shared generously with us) very very fresh big shrimp boil, under the shadow of spreading grand Live oaks. No assurance that your timing will be as good, but you can count on a comfortable, well kept room, and on a... More

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
