Don't miss this gorgeous mansion about a half hour from the river plantations. Unusually beautiful furnishings and decor; owners Lori and Paul are perfect hosts PLUS great cooks (!); we felt like kings and queens in that huge, comfy bed; couldn't begin to eat all of the delicious breakfast....YUMMMM! Walked to dinner from the quiet side street location. Sorry we missed the light show at Christmas...saw the video, it's amazing. If you're there Thursday "The Drinkery" is currently open to the public, serving drinks and apps.....loved it! This is a special place NOT TO MISS! Thank you, Lori and Paul.

Room Tip: All of them are perfect

We recently went to visit our daughter, who is in her third year at Nicholls State. We've visited Thibodaux a handful of times over the years and stayed in various places, but The Dansereau House caught our eye last summer and because we love historical homes, we knew we wanted to stay here.

What a great decision that turned out to be! The house is amazing, but it takes more than an amazing house to make an amazing B&B experience. Staying at the Dansereau House is a real blend of history and luxury that you rarely find. Antique furnishings and period decor co-mingle with modern marble bathrooms, comfortable beds, and turn-down service complete water and chocolates at night. There are even flat screen TVs in the rooms, but they are discreetly hidden behind tapestries. Available, but not obnoxious. Oh--and wireless internet through the house as well. :)

The parlor and porches are comfortable for sitting and visiting or reading. The breakfasts were incredible. Paul and Lori hold it all together and make it feel like home. We left there feeling like we'd stayed a weekend with friends instead of at a hotel. We will definitely be going back as well as recommending it to anyone we know headed to South Louisiana.

I recently returned from a belated 60th birthday trip with my sister and best friend. We spent three nights in New Orleans and then spent two nights @ Plantations: Oak Alley and Nottoway. The thought of a night in a chain hotel was not appealing. We called another plantation, Madewood, which did not have accomodations. But received a referral for the Dansereau House. What a treat. The breakfast was wonderful. The accomodations were lovely and the towels were plush. Our dinner at a local restaurant, Fremins, was my favorite meal of the trip. It was nice to get away from the tourists and spend time in a very welcoming community. Lori and Peter, our innkeepers could not have been more helpful and pleasant. It would have been tempting to stay another night and explore but, alas, I had to return home.

Room Tip: Our second floor room had wonderful natural light and accomodated a roll-away bed.

The Dansereau House is perfectly located and the spring board into the MAJESTIC PLANTATION REGION. It's located about 25 minutes from Oak Alley and The Laura.
The Dansereua House....more like a MANSION is PRISTINE and absolutely beautiful! This B&B is in a very quiet location, easy to find, safe and within walking distance from some real southern cooking.
Lori and Paul were the EPITOME of SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY! They were wonderfully accomodating in helping us with directions, interesting sites and made us a beautifully orchestrated breakfast. This breakfast looked as if it came directly out of "Top Chef". It was unreal, fresh fruit, pancakes,quich, delicious, beautiful and yummy.The bedroom was perfect, and the bathroom had pleny of hot water and was stocked with extra nice soaps and shampoos. The ice water and chocolates in our room added a special touch. We loved the wrap around balcony and was impressed that they had a elevator.
This was our first visit to Louisiana and we wanted to experience the south. The DANSEREAU House has it all... great location, awesome hospitality, immaculate, grace, beauty and a yummy breakfast.
Ask Paul for directions to the Laurel Valley Rd, can't miss these great sites, and be sure to visit the grocery store, they are really nice.

After a long rainy day of driving after a Swamp Tour which rained down 17" of rain in Cajun Country, we ended the day at the Dansereau House.(For real, on March 12 in Lafayette County there was 17" of rain!) Paul and Lori were wonderful. Paul gave us a wonderful tour of the fantastic house while Lori washed and dried our soaking clothes! They were such great hosts. The house is absolutely beautiful, yet very accomodating. Paul helped my husband with our luggage and there was an elevator for tired old ladies which was perfect for me. We had comfy, wonderful night's sleep. Our breakfast was delicious-fresh fruit stuffed in yogurt parfaits, delicious warm, homemade muffins, and Eggs Benedict. Our only regret is that we probably won't be in that area again anytime soon. But if you are, check it out, you wouldn't want to miss it.

Room Tip: Every room we saw was great. We stayed in the Dansereau Room and it was perfect. If you want to ma...
