For the last night of a recent visit to the region, we stayed in Thibodaux due to its proximity (an hour drive) to the New Orleans airport. In contrast to the rest of the central city, this "house" stands out as an architectural period piece restored to its former eloquence. But the outside of the house is only the beginning. The gracious hosts, Paul and Lori, have restored every aspect of interior old-world charm, and make you feel right at home. We were so impressed with the attention to every detail, to include an outstanding breakfast the next morning, that we were tempted to cancel our flight just to extend our stay. So if you are looking for a quality B&B an hour from the New Orleans airport, but a world away in experience, this is it.
