At Home on the Road

Cabahanosse Bed & Breakfast and Antiques & Gifts
Donaldsonville
“Wake up in a quaint bed-and-breakfast, and go downstairs to visit a unique antique and gift shop with 18 vendors who offer surprising treasures. Located in a restored 1890s building in the heart of quaint Donaldsonville, this bed-and-breakfast is just a short walk from two museums and art galleries featuring the work of sought-after local artists. You are just minutes away from many plantation homes that are open to the public. End your day with bedside treats of brandy and candy.”

Fairfield Place Bed & Breakfast Inn
Shreveport
“From the moment you arrive at Fairfield Place, you will experience the patina of a century-old bed-and-breakfast that wraps around you like a familiar, cozy blanket. Antiques add to the Old World charm as does the oasis of greenery in our gardens. Celebrities such as Ted Danson and Chloë Sevigny have enjoyed the peace and serenity of Fairfield Place. We are located in the Highland Historic District, which is convenient to restaurants and downtown nightlife.”

Hughes House
Hammond
“Just like in centuries past, you can arrive via train and be picked up for your visit to Hughes House in Hammond, a charming city of shops, fine restaurants and even vibrant Southeastern Louisiana University that offers a busy calendar of cultural events. Nearby, you will find Columbia Theatre, where you can see live performances, or you can just stay right here and enjoy our pool. Hammond is on Amtrak’s City of New Orleans line.”

Shadetree Inn
St. Francisville
“We offer you a very special and private sanctuary of nature in the quaint, historic and friendly small town of St. Francisville. A birder’s paradise on a 4-acre wooded hilltop in the historic district, Shadetree Inn overlooks the Mississippi River delta. There are numerous historic homes and grand plantation mansions nearby that are open to the public. Dining is offered in two fine restaurants or smaller cafes. For lagniappe (something extra), we offer evening campfires.”

Finding a B & B
There are bed-and-breakfast operations throughout the state. Some belong to the Louisiana Bed and Breakfast Association. The association is a good starting point for finding a worthy place with established credentials. The association’s Web site (search Louisiana Bed and Breakfast Association) provides maps, photos and information by regions of the state. For other bed-and-breakfast sites, check with parish and city convention and visitors bureaus, many of which have their own Web sites.
