Highly reviewed but think about the pros and cons: pleasant town, great yard sloping down to the bayou with its gazebo, but in room 3 the bed is in the middle of the room with doors/windows on both sides. Getting to the bathroom at night is an experience. The room was cold and couldn't be warmed up because the airconditioning is shared with the next room. There is little room around the bed, although the sheets are smooth and the mattress good. Parking is in the Tourist Information lot at night, but in the day you are asked to move the car onto a side street. Cafe des Amis is popular but lunch was not very good and the line on a Saturday morning was more than 20 minutes - longer than we were able to stand. Jacqueline is a a hard working lady but either she needs more help or a new cook at Chez Jacqueline, so it offers no real alternative. We second the review of jojoDorset, since at half the price it would still be a poor bargain.

Room Tip: not 2 or 3

We really enjoyed this house in Cajun country. It's not a typical B&B, in that the entire house is bedrooms and you eat at a little (fabulous) restaurant that is a 1-minute walk away. This means that you have a little more privacy than at typical B&Bs. Our rooms (we were travelling with our son and daughter-in-law) were clean and nicely appointed with private baths. I wish we could have stayed more than one night, but we waited until the last minute and there wasn't anything available for a second night. We really loved Maison Mes Amis, the breakfast at Chez Jacqueline was fabuous, and Breaux Bridge is a charming little town. If you want to explore Cajun country, this is a great base camp. Great location right in Breaux Bridge.

Room Tip: Double bed was a little tight for two people, but that was our fault--they have rooms with queen beds.

Maison des Amis does some things really well - for example the breakfast voucher's a great bonus and enabled us to eat terrific food every morning at Chez Jacqueline's, a delightful little cafe/restaurant round the corner. Our room (Lemelle - Room 2) had a couple of really comfortable armchairs to relax in, the gazebo out on the Bayou's a lovely place to sit and we found the caretakers - Brenda and Russell - extremely helpful. And Breaux Bridge is an extraordinarily friendly, pleasant little town/big village.

But the downside is a real downer. This place could seriously do with some re-decoration and some TLC. The owner doesn't live locally - and it really shows. Our room had dirty scuffed paintwork, badly torn curtains and when we arrived, there was no drawer space in the chest-of-drawers which was full of sheets and towels (we were staying for 5 nights and really needed to unpack). 2 of the curtains started to come down during our stay and though Russell dealt with this straight away when we asked, it shouldn't really happen in a well-kept place. We didn't mind at all there not being an owner/B&B host on-site, we were expecting that and are independent, experienced travellers. But we felt the result is that the property feels uncared-for and run-down - ok for a low-cost, no-frills motel maybe but not what we'd have expected at this price and with some of the previous TA reviews.

We are glad you were able to experience great Louisiana cuisine, found our staff to be extraordinarily friendly, were comfortable in the arm chairs in the Lemelle room and enjoyed our grounds and gazebo.

Even though the owner doesn't live in Breaux, Bridge, the house and grounds have a lot of TLC. When linens, towels and household items are damaged, these items are replaced instantly. However, when damage occurs to a room and it needs to be repainted, the room has to be taken out of the inventory for several days. Painting and other repairs have to be scheduled with our maintenance supervisor. New curtain alterations require the availability of our seamstress. Unfortunately, repairs were not able to be made before your stay. As we only have four rooms, when they are occupied we are not able to move guests to other rooms.

We are happy to report that after Mardi Gras, we were able to paint the Lemelle room and hang our new curtains. Also, our shipment of Comphy sheets arrived. We hope you will come back and visit us again.

We stayed here for four nights after spending a few days in New Orleans. Breaux Bridge is a lovely, friendly town in the heart of Cajun country. Maison des Amis is not really a B & B as neither the owner nor staff lives in the small single-storey house along Bayou Teche. We never even saw the caretakers, but spoke to them a couple of times. The rooms are very comfortable, and there is a stocked fridge in the common room, as well as snacks- a very thoughtful touch. The rooms also have a television.
The gazebo along the bayou is a wonderful place to relax and watch the water go by.
Rooms include a voucher for breakfast at Cafe des Amis or Chez Madeline, both of which offer wonderful meals. The Zyedco breakfast at Cafe des Amis is not to be missed; it is a real blast.

As other reviews have said, not a B&B where you'll hang out with the owners and get travel tips. That was fine with us.

We decided to spend a Friday night in Breax Bridge specifically go to to the Cafe des Amis zydeco breakfast on Saturday. So the fact that we got breakfast there (I think it was up to $10/person value, which we went a bit over, but we ate very well and had mimosas!).

Great location for exploring Breaux Bridge. We spent the afternoon/early evening walking around town. Had dinner at Chez Jacqueline which was great. The B&B's breakfast vouchers are also good there, and I'm sure her breakfast is good too.

The B&B has a lovely backyard and a gazebo right on Bayou Teche. We enjoyed that quite a bit. Would like it even more when it wasn't so hot, I'm sure. It was July, after all.
