1st thing you should know is that the proprietors are not very accessible: for instance the one hour check-in window of 4:30 - 5:30pm or you are on your own with the keys on the front porch. we found the owners do not linger past that hour and in the morning a quick appearance at a just o.k breakfast. what's really annoying is having to be to breakfast at one exact time and while you are downstairs, they make your bed so as you won't linger past the 10:00 check-out time. this place is not relaxed, particularily clean, or even quaint once you actually settle in short order; the ads and frommer make it sound like a down-home experience but we found just the opposite. the rooms really show their wear and tear with no attention to detail that the majority of B&Bs show. interesting comment from a previous review about the owners nonchalance to certain quests. although we didn't get that, a fellow single female guest voiced that same sentiment to us and i had no reason to doubt it. at first glance, you think you're someplace special, but that rapidly, and i mean within 15 minutes, you can see that this is no place special. in fact, some might disagree, but i did not find the trip to lafayette even worth the time and expense. the town itself is pedestrian and mundane and take away the so-called acadian mystique, (well you get the picture). instead of taking a left a baton rouge, keep going north to natchez for a much better experience.
