The Dansereau House
Ranked #1 of 2 Thibodaux B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2013

This Second Empire home with a wraparound balcony is in the middle of a plain downtown but once you step inside you are in another world. Beautiful period furnishings and chandaliers, big ornate beds, modern bathrooms. Very quiet. Awoke to chirping birds.

After flying into New Orleans that morning and going on a swamp (bayou) tour, we were fortunate to have booked ahead as we were late in arriving. The Dansereau House Bed & Breakfast is a beautiful restored old house. It is located in an area in Thibodaux that seems to be going through restoration but it was fine. We got a restaurant recommendation from Paul and Lori and were able to walk there. Paul and Lori were great hosts and we had a wonderful breakfast the next morning. As a note, however, we understand that Paul and Lori have moved on and I don’t know who the new hosts are. In any case the house is beautifully restored and very comfortable.

My wife and I had the opportunity to take a few days in the middle of the week to stay. We haven't stayed in many bed and breakfasts in the past, but the house was beautiful. While Thibodaux is not a typical destination town, it was the perfect location for what we were after. There were several restaurants and watering holes in walking distance and my wife found some neat stores and did some shopping. Paul and Lori absolutely made the stay what it was. Their hospitality and knowledge of the home made us feel immediately welcomed and comfortable. And as hospitable as Paul and Lori were, that breakfast put everything over the top. The breakfast was simply amazing!!! We hope to run into Paul and Lori again and certainly will consider another stay at the Dansereau House.

I recently stayed at the Dansereau House and can't wait to visit again. I stayed in the Rose Room and it was very beautiful. I had my own private bath, a very comfortable bed with luxurious sheets, and a private balcony. The breakfast I was served was fabulous, I had french toast with strawberry preserves, bannana bread, bacon, egg tartlet, fresh fruit with whip cream and fresh coffee. Paul and Lori (the inn keepers) were attentive making sure my stay was everything a person could dream of. Thank you Paul and Lori for your hospitality I had a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms were beautiful, but the room on the third floor is grand.

It feels a little funny being the only reviewer not to give this place five stars. The Dansereau House itself is a wonderful bed and breakfast. The building is impressive. The furnishings are elegant in an old world kind of way. The rooms are spacious and comfortable . Lori and Paul are the most gracious of hosts. And the breakfast -- to die for. If you are planning to be in Thibodaux, or the Thibodaux area, don't miss The Dansereau House. It's not cheap, but it is worth every penny.

However, if you are just poking through southern Louisiana and are more interested in the town or area you are staying in than the particular accommodations, then you might skip The Dansereau House. Sad to say, Thibodaux didn't have much going for it from a tourist point of view -- a few restaurants, a not-very-thriving downtown, with a "historic" district that had not been very historically preserved, a bayou that was not developed for the casual tourist, not much in the way of live music or entertainment. The most popular establishment that we saw was the place that hosted little girls' birthday parties (seemed great if you wanted to throw a birthday party for your six year old daughter).

So if you have relatives in Thibodaux, or business in a neighboring town, or are attending a wedding nearby, then book The Dansereau House -- now! But I cannot in good conscience give it five starts for everyone.

If you want to feel like royalty, the Dansereau House is the place for you. The house is a majestic residence in the middle of town; the rooms are elegant; the bed is the most comfortable we have EVER slept on. We spent 6 days there - four in one of the second floor rooms, and two in one of the third-floor suites, which is beyond elegant. We told the innkeepers that if they had added some corgis we would have felt like we were in Buckingham Palace. The rates were so reasonable we could not believe it. Accommodations like that in New Orleans, for example, would have been SO much more expensive.

Breakfast is quite an culinary experience. We were thoroughly spoiled.
