Traveling from Georgia to Texas and found this hidden gem. We wanted something unique other than a standard hotel. This place is absolutely amazing!!!!! Bed and Breakfast is beautiful, spacious, and very clean. The true amenities are in the property itself. The kids thoroughly enjoyed hiking through the woods with the walking sticks available on the front porch and feeding... More

SOOOO many hummingbirds and butterflies. So many different species of plants highlighted. Sculptures and art galore. Great hosts. Very different and out of the ordinary as far as BnBs go. I work at Ft Polk several times a year and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in the area of this choice. A 15 min drive to Ft Polk but WELL... More

We were visiting my husband's cousin and family who are stationed at Ft. Polk and stayed at Allen Acres. Our cousin stayed there as well (while we visited) and knows Susan and Charles (since all our family stay there when they visit). We stayed for 4 nights. Susan and Charles were wonderful, sweet, intelligent, and generous hosts. They live in... More

You wake up to the chickens crowing and at breakfast the eggs are really fresh. Susan will try to custom make anything you want and she is a great cook. Dr. Allen is a University Professor of Botany who has written many books on the local plants, so you can ask many questions about plants and he will tell you... More

Charles and Susan Allen are lovely people and ensured our stay was memorable and enjoyable. The location was great for Fort Polk and not the usual chain hotel experience. The breakfast was terrific and set us up for the day. Charles took time to show us the chickens and nearby nature trail and imparted some of his extensive knowledge on... More

Comfortable accommodations. The Allens are generous & accomplished hosts. Choose your style: a vigorous hike through the woods (small stream paddling opportunities nearby), a leisurely stroll through the Allen's imaginative native gardens, or watch hummingbirds & butterflies from a front porch rocker.

Wonderful owners. Beautiful place to stay. Got to feed the chickens and hike the nature trails. Dr. Allen is very informative about nature in the surrounding areas. Susan's Chinese food is the best.
