“Great couples get-away”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We had never stayed at this place before, but we were looking for a couples getaway with something like a cabin or cottage that also had a small lake to fish or relax by. We were completely blown away with how nice Maison d'Memoire was at being the whole package. We stayed in the Garden Cottage which was a great 1800s era house with modern A/C and a nice two person jacuzzi tub. It was decorated in a nice nostalgic way that made you feel like you were in another time and really made it easy to turn off our electronics and just relax. The property is very nice to walk around, the grounds are kept up superbly, and there is plenty of separation between cottages. The full kitchen had everything we needed. We took advantage of some great local food, and also visited the Wortmann Pottery in Rayne where we were able to pick up a handmade memento of our trip away. The breakfast far exceeded expectations and Lyn's cooking is pretty impressive. We will definitely stay here again.

I taunted my mother's 84th birthday celebration as a "mystery trip" so she had no idea where we were going until she got her ticket at the airport! But she was delighted when we arrived at our "Sweet Surrender" cottage (chosen for the swing on the front porch). My sister was equally thrilled with having her own cottage next door. We loved the antique motif and historic character of each cottage, unlike most other places. And then breakfast arrived . . . it became each morning's thrill as we set an alarm to see what would be in our basket. We loved eating it on our sunny veranda overlooking the lake dotted with egrets. While there's not much to do at the B & B itself (which was fine for us), there IS plenty to do within less than an hour's drive. We mixed in swamp photos, visited the historic grounds used in Longfellow's poem "Evangeline," had daily picnics in several locations, toured a rice/crawfish farm, and visited with friends in nearby Lake Charles. Such a glorious trip in every way highlighted by Maison D'Memoire. My mother gained a whole new respect for Cajun country and even loved the food. We didn't even miss not shopping or swimming!

Wonderful, private cottage (Prairie Haven) overlooking a scenic pond! Century old cottages were lovingly renovated to be comfortable with all the modern conveniences without losing their ambiance! Breakfast was 5 stars and delivered to our door each morning! Lyn was a gracious hostess!

As a family of four we have all agreed our stay was great. The boys loved the fishing in the pond. Walks either solo or coupled are a plus around the grounds. The cottage was comfortable and cozy. The location is just minutes drive from authentic cajun food places. The grounds are beautifully kept and the breakfasts served are delicious. We would love to stay again in the future.

We kicked off our first-ever vacation to Cajun Country with two wonderful nights here, perched on the edge of the bayou. Our spacious housekeeping cottage was immaculately clean and charmingly decorated with family heirlooms. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and we slept like babies. Hostess Lyn Guidry drops off a breakfast basket with home-baked goodies each morning, and she is very charming and helpful if you have questions or need assistance. Otherwise, you will be left in complete privacy to hike around the property, head out to adventure as early or late as you like, or just hole up in your own private cottage to enjoy the whirlpool bath for two and the "lagniappe" hospitality items that Lyn has waiting for you when you arrive. We purchased the package deal which also included a restaurant dinner for two, tickets to an old-time live radio showcase of Cajun music (billed as an all-French broadcast, although the younger musicians sang their songs in French but preferred to speak to the emcee in English), and a professionally guided tour of the bayou, and all three were fantastic. At the end of our stay, we were offered a $50 discount toward our next visit. We can't wait to come back!

My wife and I had the pleasure of hiding away the entire rainy and overcast weekend. This cozy little gem was hiding right here in our own back yard and we didn't know it. What a pleasure and what great way to just get away and go hide for a couple of days; no phones, no neighbors, no pets, no problems. And the breakfasts? OMG, They are the kind you read about in Southern Living and clip to save. The hostess is just the sweetest little lady who apparently thrives on helping her guest throw off the burdens of life if only for a brief weekend getaway. To say the cottages are charming is a gross understatement. Definitely a must for the weary pilgrim in Acadiana or the passer thru just seeking a safe haven for the weekend. Two thumbs up. Many thanks Lyn and Ken. WELL Done.
