My wife, my three brothers and I just spent three nights at the Palms on the Teche. This place was perfect for us. It's small but it has all you need for a short vacation in Bayou country. The best feature of the house is the screened in porch out back. We spent every morning and every evening on the back porch talking about that day's activities and reminiscing about visiting our grandparents and our many Louisiana cousins each summer as we grew up. The fact that this small country-style house sits on the banks of the picturesque Bayou Teche made it perfect. My ancestors had land all along this bayou. The house is reminded me and my brothers of our grandparents' small house on their farm. The interior doors of the house appear to be the original farm-style doors which gave the house a rural feel. The appliances all worked well (until I put too much liquid soap in the dishwasher). The owner, Keith, was super friendly and checked with us to make sure we had everything we needed. The 90-year-old country store in Leonville, Champagne's, had all the food and supplies we needed. Additionally, the small town atmosphere of the store and all the citizens of Leonville made this visit fantastic. I ran about six miles each morning on highway 31 and noticed that nearly every motorist going by waved to me. They didn't blow their horns in anger as one expects in a big city. They displayed hospitality and a welcoming attitude. If you have family in the area, this house is ideal (especially if you have children). The kids won't be cramped in a small hotel room, they have a large yard to run around. However, you should take the warning signs about alligators and poisonous snakes seriously. The next-door neighbor told me he watched the neighbors on the opposite side of the bayou catch an alligator this past summer. All-in-all, this place and the friendly people of Leonville & Prairie Laurent exceeded our expectations. Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!
