Cajun Country Tour
Ultimate Cajun Country Adventure
Cajun Country AccommodationsMost tours stay at T Frere’s House, a beautiful colonial farmstead built in 1880. Some say it’s occasionally visited by a friendly ghost named Amelie, ask the innkeeper for the story. Unwind in their luxurious rooms, read a book or shoot hoops in the courtyard, and sip a cocktail in their elegant sunroom.
If you prefer to be by the water we also offer accommodations at Country Charm Cabins, a small property in Breaux Bridge located on a private pond. Recline under the massive Live Oak tree and cast a line out for catfish, or take a sunset paddle in the canoe. The fire pit is a perfect place to relax and roast some marshmallows. The serenity of this location cannot be beat!
