“Great Bed and Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2005

T'Frere's House is a cozy and friendly way to spend a few days in Cajun country. Maugie and Pat Pastor are knowledgable and have lived in Cajun country their whole lives. Yes, as another review states, they are not around other than check-in time and breakfast, but that is typical of a b&b. If you want a concierge desk you should stay at a bigger hotel. The Mary Room sleeps three and was comfortably furnished.

Breakfast is good and Maugie is famous for it--she ran restaurants in Louisiana most of her life. But there isn't a selection of items--you eat what's being cooked for the day.

The location is good and Lafayette is as good as any other town in Cajun country to make your home base for a trip to the area.

I've stayed in other B&Bs but never had the feeling of being truly welcome and taken cared for. Both Pat and Maugie's hospitality were excellent. She immediately asked our plans and made sure our reservations for dinner were in order. For those times we had not chosen a restaurant, she asked about our tastes and recommended several from which we could choose. She also made arrangements for a swamp tour for us. Being welcomed with a T'julep on arrival was very welcome on a hot day. Bring the recipe back with you. The room at the front of the house was adequately large enough and quiet. I must say, though, that the tv was strangely placed. Both my wife and I enjoyed our stay here immensely.

This pleasant B&B is quite nice for a one nighter. As stated elsewhere, the hosts were charming and hospitable. Maugie is a character, gregarious and funny, and serves breakfast in her red silk pajamas. Breakfast, I must say, was stellar - delicious, sophisticated Southern, homemade, & beautifully presented. The rooms were sweet, if cluttered, but the carpets & bathmats could stand a good cleaning. Speaking of bathrooms, be sure to ask for a room with a shower if that is your preference. Several of the rooms have only a tub with a handheld shower.

1st thing you should know is that the proprietors are not very accessible: for instance the one hour check-in window of 4:30 - 5:30pm or you are on your own with the keys on the front porch. we found the owners do not linger past that hour and in the morning a quick appearance at a just o.k breakfast. what's really annoying is having to be to breakfast at one exact time and while you are downstairs, they make your bed so as you won't linger past the 10:00 check-out time. this place is not relaxed, particularily clean, or even quaint once you actually settle in short order; the ads and frommer make it sound like a down-home experience but we found just the opposite. the rooms really show their wear and tear with no attention to detail that the majority of B&Bs show. interesting comment from a previous review about the owners nonchalance to certain quests. although we didn't get that, a fellow single female guest voiced that same sentiment to us and i had no reason to doubt it. at first glance, you think you're someplace special, but that rapidly, and i mean within 15 minutes, you can see that this is no place special. in fact, some might disagree, but i did not find the trip to lafayette even worth the time and expense. the town itself is pedestrian and mundane and take away the so-called acadian mystique, (well you get the picture). instead of taking a left a baton rouge, keep going north to natchez for a much better experience.

We stayed at T'freres as a stopover for one night on our honeymoon. Wish we could have stayed longer! Everything was wonderful...the room, the bathroom, the breakfast. 5 stars!

We've stayed at many B&B's throughout the world. This little gem exceeded our expectations. The hosts are truly hospitable as are all the folk that we met in Louisiana. The rooms, food, music, internet and drinks are all there for your to enjoy on your own schedule. The hosts even arranged for us to go to the "front of the line" at the local busy restaurants.

The previous review talks about there not being enough beer and wine and frankly, I have never been provided this luxury before. All I can say is that Maugie and Pat (et al) made us feel at home. The price was below the offerings.

We spent our honeymoon with Pat and Maugie and bought her cookbook. They made it the best most comfortable time we could have asked for! We've tried several of her recipes since and they are loved by everyone! We stayed in the Mary room and it is gorgeous and very welcomng and cozy. This time we are headed back to stay in the Bouree room and can't wait, all the rooms have thier own unique charm we were lucky enough to be able to see them all while there and would love to stay in any of them! Plus we can't wait to be back and catch up with Pat and Maugie, they truly make you feel like part of thier home and family!
