We loved our two nights at Sweet Cane Inn. With in walking distance to shops and restaurants. It is close to the Cane River Lake where you can sit and enjoy the lush vegetation and flowers. Natchitoches, Louisiana has so much history. We took the walking tour that was guided by the parks. We drove out to see plantations and we shopped until we could shop no more. The restaurants there are very good. We had to have a meat pie at the famous Lasyone's. Great place for lunch is Merci Beaucoup where they have wonderful sandwiches, gumbo, red beans and rice and salads. The best part is the bnb we were staying in also had a very good restaurant just a stroll away. Get there early because it was packed every night and we stayed on weeknights. Natchitoches is going to be celebrating there 300 year birthday soon. They are older than New Orleans. The Sweet Cane Inn was beautiful and the room was awesome. We thought we had hit the lottery! We stayed in the Azela room and the individual climate control was great. Sometimes the older homes are hotter upstairs, but no need to worry here. The breakfasts were so good. There are many bnbs to choose from, but you will want to stay at Sweet Cane Inn in Natchitoches!
