“Unusual Experience At Beau Fort Plantation”
Reviewed 11 October 2003

We had stayed in a beautiful B&B in Lafayette, LA (T'Frerer's) for several years, so wanted to experience another. I called several months in advance to make my reservations. I spoke with Ann, the owner. She said even though she would be out of the country when we were there, she assured us that she had a very capeable staff to help us.

Well, when we arrived, the place looked rather "seedy." The grass needed to be cut, etc. and there was a "closed" sign on the gate! After making numerous calls, I finally contacted someone that could help.
Evidently, Ann didn't write our date down on the calendar (even though we had received a confirmation in the mail) and no one was expecting us! The person in charge was out of town. She told us she wouldn't be back till the next morning, but to search out the yard man to let us in. If he wasn't there, he lived next door, so to go there to find him.
His truck was at his house, but we couldn't raise him.

We didn't feel too comfortable with the idea of the yard man letting us in, anyway. After all, how could we then leave and go get something to eat. Also, would we be able to get back in when we got back? Would anyone know we were there that night? Would we be safe?

The person who was to take care of us said she would be there about 8am the next morning, to fix breakfast, but what kind of breakfast would THAT be! Since they weren't prepared for us, would it be just something thrown together quickly? Staying at a B&B was supposed to be a great, elegant experience (especially for the price we would be paying) and would we get a quality breakfast? Probably not!

We didn't feel comfortable about the whole thing! It was out of the way, a little run down looking, and we didn't feel safe staying! Too bad! I really was looking forward to seeing the inside, especially after what I had seen about it on TV. Looked like a great place, but maybe that was several years ago!

My husband doesn't want to take the chance there again!
