“A beautiful restored historical home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Staying at the Dansereau House is like stepping back over one hundred years -- except for all the modern convniences! We had a beautiful room on the second floor with our own bathroom, all quite modern, and windows looking our to the street. And a wonderful king size bed. Breakfast was well done. There is convenient parking just to the rear of the property.

The Drinkery, located inside the Dansereau House, is one of Thibodaux's tucked away and hidden treasures. It's surrounded by history and beauty. Rocking on it's beautiful verandas while the sound of music travels through it's gigantic doors and plush greenery will make you wish you never had to leave. It's so peaceful. The bar offers a very affordable display of appetizers which were amazingly tasty. The bubbly inn keeper Ms Cheryl is sure to have you wrapped around her finger the minute you step into her house. You'll feel like family and you'll be served accordingly. The night I visited, Todd Adams was the entertainment and he didn't let us down. A gifted, smart, funny musician. If you can think of it, he can play it! My only complaint is that the night was too short! Looking forward to visiting again really soon.

What a wonderful historic home in downtown Thibodaux. My wife Rhonda and I have return many times for the Drinker y starts at 5:30 on Thursday nights which has live entertainment from 6:30PM-9:30PM. If the weather is too cold or the extreme weather conditions the event may be called off.
Gail and and Cheryl are great hostesses and go the extra mile to meet the need of their guest
needs. They make you feel right at home.
There are also so many places that you can walk to eat, shop and sight see.
If you miss a visit to this property while in town, you didn't see all of Thibodaux

Room Tip: If I were to have a wedding here, this would be the ideal place to have it.

The rooms at the very large Dansereau Mansion are very nice. The third floor has two enormous suites suitable for families. There is an elevator to solve the potential problem of hauling luggage up two or three very long flights of stairs. The Mansion served as an inn and restaurant at one time, so the dining room is perfect for breakfast. The food was simple and very well prepared. If you want to overnight in Thibodaux, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are perfect for couples.

We stayed here for our wedding night and it was awesome. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I plan to stay there again for sure. Oh and breakfast was delicious

Step back in time at this awesome antebellum mansion and enjoy a fantastic breakfast! My husband and I stopped over here for a night on our way from Natchez to New Orleans. We pulled up for a drink and bite to eat at nearby bar, The Foundry, and called Gayle, the manager of the Dansereau who came and met us so we could follow her the short drive to the house. We were really impressed and, as we were the only guests, we were lucky enough to stay in the Governors suite on the top floor. Gayle made us a fabulous breakfast the next morning and showed us around the house, including the observation room above the attic. The house is beautifully maintained inside with lovely old furniture and sumptuous bedding and curtains etc. We could have stayed at an ordinary hotel chain but instead had a luxury en-suite room in a house that was part of American history. we would definitely recommend it!

This place can be used for a bead and breakfast, hosting events, and a variety of activities where you may want a nice historical classy backdrop.

The bar is also open on Thursday nights and they have live entertainment most nights when the weather is cooperative. Small Hors d'oeuvres are also available. Get a drink and listen to live music.

If you are only going to be spending a night or two in Thibodaux, this is the place you want to stay.

Room Tip: Call ahead for options.
