This is in a fantastic setting just by the Evangeline Oak, we could see it from our room! We were extremely fortunate to arrive Valentine's Evening and when we booked Peggy, the owner, invited us to join in the annual Valentine Social which celebrates all those who became engaged or married under the Oak. It was a very lovely experience and we have to thank her and the people of St Martinville for making us so very welcome.
The house itself is very old and as other people have said is not full of mod cons, that is the attraction! It is however very clean and very beautiful and as the owner of a fairly old house I'm glad I don't have to up keep of this one. It was one of the original River Boat Hotels and then for many years a school, we met various ex pupils, the whole experience was wonderful and we throughly recommend St Martinville and the Old Castillo, but not if your preferred and only acceptable option is a chain hotel.
