Cajun Country Adventures in Louisiana

Up Close with the Incredible Nature and Culture of Acadiana

Our locally crafted all-inclusive tours are the most authentic Cajun experiences on the market. Stay in Lafayette’s most cozy and historic B&B, or in the country by a private pond in Breaux Bridge. Join us for our Cajun Country Adventure and explore the swamp at Lake Martin Wildlife Refuge, take a Cajun Cooking Lesson, bust a move at a local zydeco dancehall and visit the Historic Whitney plantation. Join us for the Ultimate Cajun Country package and you will also get to kayak on Bayou Teche, tour the Tabasco factory and their gardens, have an insider’s visit to a local music studio, explore an organic farm and have a private seafood boil at your B&B! Our attention to personalized service is what sets us apart from the competition. Our code of environmental and business ethics guarantees that we treat the ecosystem right and put your money back into the LA economy through small local businesses.

Cajun Country Accommodations
Most 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!
