We loved our stay at the Bayou Cabins! We booked one night, our first night of a trip that would take us through the Gulf Coast into Florida. We decided to stay a second night as we wanted more time in Acadiana and loved the steamy (June) and albeit Kitschy ambience of the Cabins and environs. They even manage to celebrate the rust that attacks everything in this climate of excess humidity, with rusty rustic being the outdoor decor. We stayed in one of the larger cabins with a kitchen and screened back porch overlooking the Bayou. The cacophony of nighttime insect and frog sounds was amazing — so much so I recorded it for posterity and to share on social media!
The bed was comfortable and the rooms clean, the bathroom nice, clean, and a good shower. We had breakfast both mornings at the front office/dining area and enjoyed the good company of the owners Rocky and Lisa. There's a nifty little gift store too with all things Bayou and we indulged in Alligator tooth necklaces. Breakfast is a menu you choose from, cooked to order, and very good. Great Community Coffee too! And there's a coffee maker in the cabin as well, so we were well set up for our morning coffee needs.
In back of our cabin were some chairs in the muddy shore of the bayou, and we actually found it lovely to sit out there and have our coffee on morning #2. The mosquitos were late this year, and that was good! It was not buggy at all.
We read about the cabins in Southern Living's "Drives and Dives" issue, and that's what got us booking there in the first place. We were not disappointed.
Just a word on reading a few of the negative reviews: it's a case of, "did we stay at the same place?" Some speak of the owners being away, and maybe that was a key factor in their experience. Some complained the cabins were dirty. We can only speak for our own cabin and experience, which was clean and comfortable. I can't imagine it being otherwise in Rocky and Lisa's hands, so I'm mystified by these reviews. If those people prefer "chain motels" then I'm sure there's a motel leaving a light on for them, but I wouldn't trade Bayou Cabins for all the chains in the South. We also felt plenty safe and secure, not worried about the keys left in cabins for incoming guests, as TONS of B&B's do this for late arrivals, and many motels that are right on the road. In other words, lodging without 24 hour front desk staff do this routinely. This is not unusual nor dangerous — and we are intrepid travelers who stay at all kinds of places all over the US and Europe! Bayou Cabins rock!
Some complain the main road was close. Yes it is. So what? Main roads are close to MANY lodgings on the road. It was not noisy, and not a problem. You want to talk about noise? It's the frogs.
The A/C worked very well, by the way.
As for internet, I think it was o.k. As a traveler, I NEVER rely on hotels/motels/B&B's for their wifi. If it works, it works. If not, we always have 4G except really out in the boonies, and I carry my MiFi with me for my own secure network.
As for the T.V., I have no sympathy for complaints about a t.v. Who comes to Bayou Country to stay in cool cabins and wants to spend their time watching T.V.? No one. You have a phone, a tablet, or a laptop? Make sure you have your own connection and watch via streaming on your personal device. TVs are so last century.
Also, unbelievably, I see some people complaining about the cost on here. That's mind-boggling. These cabins are inexpensive — in an inexpensive part of the US. If you find these "expensive" or "pricey" — just stay home. You should not be traveling anywhere.
We also had a front porch to sit on, and we enjoyed that as well. From this location we were able to explore the whole area easily, and have an unusual and fun place to stay. Highly recommended, unless you have a pole up your bottom that prevents you from having fun.
Six nights were more than enough to make me fall in love with Bayou Cabins and the beautiful town of Breaux Bridge. Rocky and Lisa are wonderful hosts who help make your stay so much more special. They provide you with everything you need for your cabin, cook amazing meals for breakfast, and provide helpful information about the area, where to go, and what to do. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
We're from Europe (Vienna, AT) and travel a lot - worldwide. We've been to the USA about 20 times, coast to coast, but we allways love to come back at Rocky's place (9 times so far) Rocky and Lisa are so nice, gret food, fantastic southern hospitality and so much to see and to do in the area. Mercy. We're back soon SouthernGeorge and CeCi
Awsome place!!! I had high expectations when booking and Bayou Cabin went far above them. We travel a lot and very few places had surprised me when check in. I didn't expect to find this.
First when you park your car, you face a garden with spaces where to seat and share with other guest.
Then you open the door of your cabin and your heart just stops for a few second. What happened there??? You find a neat place furnished with old historic stuff, typical bed, od style thub... It brings you back to your childhood and you start playing.
Not to mention that the cabin is super clean with high attention to details.
We had the chance to share a moment with a group of musician from Texas: good live music and drinks in the garden. Fantastic.
In the morning do not miss the breakfast: you can chosse from 5 or 6 different plates.
Thank you Lisa and Rocky to allow us to stay in your cabin.
Very friendly place and out of the usually paths. The cabins are authentic brought by the owner to create this interesting experience of the Bayou. Simple but confortable. The beignets are delicious in shape of crawfish!!!
