We stayed at the B&B for just one night, but had a lovely time and would have definitely stayed another night or too if we had time. The house was well kept and of period design and the surrounds were very beautiful, with stairs leading down to a jetty on the water-front. Our room had all appropriate amenities, plus French windows leading out to the swinging chair on the porch and back garden.
A fantastic three-course breakfast was provided in the dining room in the morning and our host, Charles, was very charming and friendly. It was interesting to walk around the small but beautiful town of Natchitoches, particularly along the riverfront. The only downside of my stay was that I found it particularly difficult to find anything vegetarian to eat in the area, although (with advance warning) Charles was kind enough to specially prepare a vegetarian breakfast for me! I would definitely recommend the B&B to anyone visiting the area.
