This place came very highly recommended, but we were disappointed. First of all it was uncommonly cold during our stay and the place just isn't equipped to handle that. Our room was switched to one with better insulation and a larger heater, but it was still cold and drafty. Then, the water did not turn on right away and we were scared that we might not have water at all (it ended up being turned on later). The room was clean enough, but a bit dingy. The only positive point of the experience was the friendly owners and the delicious food. Perhaps the place is more charming in the spring/summer/fall, but avoid it during the winter because it made for an unpleasant first night on our anniversary trip! Also, the website makes it seem like it is secluded on a the Bayou Teche, but it's right off the main street and there is a bar just across the bayou from the cabins - not at all what I was expecting.
