This was probably the best B&B experience I've ever had. The setting really is sublime. KW, the erudite owner, has done a great job of providing excellent bird habitat with the result being a diverse and happy population of feathered entertainers. The rooms were comfortable and very relaxing, and KW was both an entertaining and helpful host. We stopped for... More

Really special little place, don't hesitate just book it you won't be disappointed! Its the most pretty b n b I have ever stayed in. It is beautifully done inside, it must have been a very clever interior designer who put it all together as its really cleverly designed space throughout. We were very sad to only have the one...

The owner, KW is the best part of the Shadetree. The word enchanting comes to mind every time you meet KW. He is a true gentleman and loves to share his cottages, his land and his view of the bluff with his guests. This isn't your ordinary B & B - each unit is a private fully equipped cottage each...

My only mistake in coming here was staying just the one night. The perfect antidote to a New Orleans blowout, the stunning cabins are set in a magical bird sanctuary with every conceivable home comfort at your finger tips. KW is an incredibly kind and generous host who puts everything into ensuring his guests have a great stay. I was... More

We only stayed here for one night, but wish we had more time. Shadetree Inn is a lovely place to stay in a peaceful location. Our room was huge and beautifully decorated in a rustic style that felt authentic to the location. KW, the owner, was so kind and helpful, showing us walking routes in the area and telling us...

This was a really cute, peaceful place to stay in St. Francisville. I would recommend this place and St. Francisville in general for people who want a relaxing few days. We were looking more for things to do and see and found the whole area to a little bit boring, other than the wonderful plantations. We could barely find a... More

We stayed in the LOFT one of three apartments in Shadetree. It is up among the treetops and the many cardinal birds with their cardinal colored throats. The apartment is nice decorated, rustic and without plantation knickknacks. The host AW "The Caretaker" is there when you need him. With stories and informations about the area. He likes campfire as us... More

This is our second stay and I am at a loss for words. Shadetree is so special;peaceful;gorgeous yet 100 percent natural. There are FLOCKS of cardinals outside your door . This is South Louisiana at its best. The Mississippi is a short walk away.. You can hear the pipe organs from the paddle boats at night.

Most comfortable and peaceful B&B I've ever stayed at. The proprietor was so kind and helpful, and the room was incredible. We stayed in "The Loft," and had a very restful time. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
