I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to stay at the Lost Bayou. My husband is disabled and Dave and Maria made every attempt to make our stay memorable. They were very accommodating. The breakfast Dave made was just delicious. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious, clean and quiet. The common room was fun to sit in and... More

It's annoying to reserve a 5-star rated TripAdvisor listing only to find out upon arrival that it is obviously sub-par. Such an unpleasant surprise is not likely to happen at The Lost Bayou B&B. The proprietors, Dave and Maria, are exceptional hosts. They take pride in their establishment and work hard to convey that always-appealing home-away-from-home atmosphere. Our room, the... More

The Lost Bayou B&B is historic, having survived the 1900 Hurricane (most deadly disaster in U.S. history) yet modern, clean, fresh-smelling, comfortable, centrally located, AND with the best breakfasts you will likely EVER encounter. Owners Dave and Maria must have advanced degrees in hospitality management...they do everything so well. After 3 days, I did not want to leave for home!

Our stay with Maria was excellent. We had never stayed at a B&B before so we really didn't know what to expect. The room was amazing, very comfortable bed, quiet at night and Maria was very gracious. Breakfast was over the top every morning. You won't regret staying here! Demi & Edwin

We chose the Lost Bayou mostly for it's location which is centered on the island and away from the seawall with it's partying rep. It is in a residential neighborhood that has a bit of urban decay, but for the most part is well kept. We walked through the streets at night for at least a mile or so to... More
