We recently spent 9 wonderful days at Bonne Terre. The cottage is lovely and so well furnished. The kitchen is fully stocked. Jen has thought of everything you could possibly need for a great visit. CD's, books, and DVD's are plentiful, but it was just fun to sit on the porch with a cup of hot tea and watch the chickens and horses in the back. Since my husband is from central Louisiana and I graduated from high school (eons ago!) in Breaux Bridge, we were already familiar with the area, but we still found plenty of things to do and people to see. Jen is a wonderful hostess. Even though she was quite sick while we were there, she was more concerned that we were having a good time and had everything we needed. (We did.) We are not artists, but this is truly a retreat. We're already planning for our next visit. Thanks, Jen, for a wonderful week.
