Set on 2 acres of land with native trees and plants,staying with us is an authentic country experience. Sweet potato capital of the world, Sunset, Louisiana is a convenient hub to explore the Acadiana region or relax on our serene property.
The room is similar to a private, second story apartment, but without a full kitchen. It has its own exterior entrance, bathroom, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, plates and (URL HIDDEN) should be noted that the single bed is a trundle bed and is low to the ground. The room receives a lot of shade from the big live oak tree that grows over it, under which you can swing in the hammock, sit on the front porch or in the garden. There is a small collection of vinyls featuring some classic Zydeco, Cajun and New Orleans musicians, as well as books and guitars for your pleasure.
The room has a rustic/funky/southwest feel and is full of homemade or refurbished furniture. Dave is a master carpenter, so if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Our property is best suited for guests seeking the peace of the countryside, and a unique look at small town Louisiana life. It is also a convenient hub for exploring Acadiana: Lafayette is 20 minutes away, Mamou and Fred's Lounge is 30, Bayou Teche Brewery is 10, Opelousas is 7, historic Gran Coteau is 5, and of course Sunset is only a bike ride or short walk down the road.
We have lived here our whole lives and can recommend interesting places to visit, where to eat, canoe at state parks, take scenic drives, see music (or an alligator!) and more.
Guests are welcome to use the whole garden and backyard. There is a fire pit and bbq pit for use as well. There is also access to a laundry room if you need to wash clothes.
