Overlooking the Vermillion River with tugboats and barges passing, the Bayou Rose is a delightful cottage to enjoy whether rocking on the deck or touring the Cajun area. Well equipped with kitchen items or history/travel books, visitors can be very comfortable learning more about Abbeville, nearby towns and the people who have lived here for generations. Anne and Mike, the hosts are knowledgeable about places to see or restaurants to enjoy. Whether you wish to play golf, tour historic houses or gardens, they will graciously assist you. Driving the Cajun/Creole Trail with occasional stops for walks was an afternoon we would have otherwise missed without their suggestion. As we wend our way back to snowy Maine, we will savor their friendship, enthusiasm and breakfast treats.
I hope I can in words do justice to Bayou Rose Cottage B&B to convey just what a very special place this is to visit. I've now stayed there twice. Once with my adult son and recently with my husband. It's such a special B&B. The separate fully equipped one bedroom cottage is perfect for adults wanting a 'home away from home'. A full size kitchen and living room area with sleeper-convertible couch, large bathroom with washer and dryer, bedroom with large closet and very comfortable bed. An attached covered porch and a nearby private large deck/dock on the Vermillion River provide some very special places for morning coffee and evening beverage of choice. Truly one of the most fully equipped B&Bs that I have ever found. A newly completed excellent near-by restaurant offers delicious and convenient dining with great atmosphere. A perfect morning light breakfast treat (including boudin) and a fully equipped kitchen with snacks and condiments is all part of what creates a very special 5 star experience with Anne and Mike, who are also very knowledgeable about the many nearby wonderful area attractions. I look forward to one day returning to Bayou Cottage Rose again....and again. :)
Great experience! In this quiet spot on the river (bayou), you would never guess you were in a city, yet it's a block or two to the best restaurants in town! Anne and Mike live next door and took great care to make our stay comfortable, with drinks in the fridge and a full kitchen, if we had wanted to cook. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the river flow by....and the occasional boat or barge with it's tugboat attached. Southern hospitality at it's best! Plus, Anne was toting around the cutest 6 mo. old baby you ever SAW! A wonderful B&B experience!
The very affordable Bayou Rose cottage was very well appointed and well located on the banks of the Vermillion River. It was also close to shops and restaurants where the Abbeville Crawfish and other Cajun delights were available. Likeable and engaging hosts, Anne & Mike, we're happy to suggest activities in the area. Overall we had a pleasant experience staying at Bayou Rose.
What a remarkable experience is waiting for you at Bayou Rose Cottage! Anne and Mike took us into their home, into their hearts, and into their special Cajun community. From personally delivered morning treats to an expert's insights on where to go and what to see, Anne made sure that our first trip to Acadiana was filled with unforgettable experiences and priceless memories. The cottage itself was immaculately clean, charmingly furnished, and well stocked with everything a traveler might need. Sitting on the back porch in the evening after a day of sightseeing, chatting with Anne and Mike and getting all our questions answered, and watching the Vermilion River--and the occasional tugboat and barge--roll by couldn't have been more relaxing. Perfect spot, perfect hosts, perfect vacation.
