“Home away from home”
Reviewed June 24, 2011

Jill and skip were outstanding hosts. Every attention to detail was thought out from the decor to the goody bags on the bed. We felt very relaxed there and enjoyed the alternative eggs benedict with local Tasso ham and cheesy grits. The balcony outside the rooms made for a relaxing nightcap area after dinner at a local restaurant called St johns which was short walk away. Try the crab cakes.

Our several day stay at the Bienvenue House was the perfect introduction to the Cajun Country of Louisiana. The house was built in 1830 and has that old style charm along with the modern conveniences. I'm a lover of claw foot bathtubs, and each of the 4 guest rooms has a perfect one. The breakfasts were a Southern taste treat. The Cajun Eggs Benedict had a marvelous spicy twist. The innkeepers, Jill and Skip, were very knowledgeable about surrounding attractions. There is so much to do there, within a 30 mile radius. They told us about the perfect swam tour, and about a wonderful Cajun museum. I know that that their B&B is often rented out for entire bridal parties. It would also be the perfect venue for family reunions.

Room Tip: Each of the 4 guest rooms has special charm

We were at the Bienvenue House the first week of December. Jill and Skip were so gracious. They stayed up late into the night listening to my mother and aunt tell their stories of visiting Louisiana as young children. Jill also made my 7-year-old niece feel very special. The rooms were spacious and charming. After we left Bienvenue House, we visited several museums nearby and when we told the docents where we were staying, they all knew Jill and said how wonderful she was.

The breakfast was delicious and so were the cookies we had before bedtime.
We were able to park in the drive way on the side street. The garden and balcony are beautiful. We sat on the porch swing. We rented two rooms - one upstairs and one downstairs and each had its own bathroom. Bathrooms were beautiful and well appointed. The bed I was in was comfortable.

I have never been there, but I have had the hospitality of Jill & Skip in Washington state. The are the best, and we miss them very much! Should stay at their place and have Jill's ham!

We stayed here for 5 nights while attending a wedding nearby. Breakfast was made from scratch each morning, with chilled fresh squeezed orange juice, good Louisiana coffee, breakfast breads, and on different days, quiche, pancakes and eggs, eggs benedict, and each day a fresh fruit dish. Jill, the hostess, is friendly and relaxed. The table was set with tablecloth, china and tall stem glasses. Our room on street level was about twice the size of the usual hotel room, with a queen bed, ceiling fan, window air conditioner and polished hardwood floor. In the bathroom there was a cast iron tub with shower hose (not a shower stall) so it was difficult not to spray water on the floor. On the other hand we were amply supplied with fresh large bath towels daily.
Outside there is a front porch with two rockers, and a balcony for the upper level. The porch looks out on a lawn and a walk with two large live oak trees festooned with spanish moss. There is offstreet parking for three cars.

My brother has been staying at this Bed and Breakfast periodically over the last 2 years and really loved it. St. Martinville is town of our childhood and the birthplace of his wife. So they go back to relax and visit with members of her family.

I joined him for a short reunion over the week end of the International Music Festival in Lafayette, La. and used the Bienvenue House as a base. I thoroughly enjoyed the house, the meals, the long galleries where we sat and visited.

Jill and Skip are very friendly and made us feel so welcome. They wanted the night off to go to the festival and left us in charge.

The historic areas of St. Martinville are all within walking distance of the house.

Thanks Jill,
