Splendor Farms is a relaxing country escape, one hour from New Orleans, where memories are created. Situated on a 75-acre working rural farm, we have 3 guest bedrooms, a guest bunkhouse, horseback riding, swimming pool, a dachshund kennel, petting zoo, and nearby hiking, biking, and nature trails. Just 1/4 mile up the road is the scenic Bogue Chitto River, where you can ride horses, fish, canoe, tube, or just have a picnic and enjoy all the nature surrounding you. Splendor Farms is perfect for nature and animal lovers, and busy city folks looking for a place "to get away from it all." We can accommodate you, your children, and your pets. Guest room rates include horseback riding, swimming pool, fishing (bait & equipment provided), and a hearty gourmet farm breakfast courtesy of hostess Kelly! 1 hour north of New Orleans. 1 1/2 hours east of Baton Rouge.

Our family had a blast at Splendor Farms in March 2012! Our boys fed the horses, chickens, goats, sheep and ponies, they collected eggs, they watched and learned when the vet and farrier came for visits. We all had a wonderful time on the trail rides each morning. Our guide was so nice and made everyone feel comfortable on the horses. Kelly's breakfasts are amazing- I still can't figure out how she makes so many wonderful things each and every day! Our rooms were big and comfortable enough for us to relax and spread out after a fun day on the farm, day trip to New Orleans, and day trips to other wonderful locations nearby- a safari park, an alligator farm, brew pub, art gallery- all within 30 minutes- an itinerary thoughtfully arranged for us by Kelly. Our Louisiana adventure was truly special and unique thanks to Kelly and Splendor Farms.

Fabulous, again!!! What's fabulous about Splendor Farms is; that nothing is "over the top",(Except for the Eggs Bennedict, and Huevos Rancheros). No, ladies and gentlemen...this is not a day spa where your every whim is catered to. Genuine farm. Genuine people who love and care for animals. Genuine bed and breakfast. Is it perfect? Probably not...But it just so happens to be the perfect little get-away for "city-folk",like my wife and myself. Not so far so as to be out of touch with everything; but if you're looking for a reprieve from the "hustle and bustle", of city life, I highly recommend this little gem. Kelly is an awesome host. Come as you are...Ride a horse...Stroll the grounds...Go fishing...Meditate...Buy a Dachshund...Once you go...You'll be back...

Splendor Farms is a great place to spend a day or two away from the busy life. The one hour horse ride is fun and can't wait to try the two hour ride. The surrounding cities are quaint with lots of photo opportunities. The staff are amazing! The big home cooked breakfasts are scrumptious. If you are looking for great place filled with Southern hospitality, this is it!

Splendor Farm was a lovely experience with all the friendly dogs and horses. James, the trail guide, was funny and made the ride very enjoyable. The breakfast was delicious and extremely filling.

Very lovely farm experience. Kelly was a lovely hostess who is knowledgeable about farm life & shows her piece of earth graciously.
