Traveling from Georgia to Texas and found this hidden gem. We wanted something unique other than a standard hotel. This place is absolutely amazing!!!!! Bed and Breakfast is beautiful, spacious, and very clean. The true amenities are in the property itself. The kids thoroughly enjoyed hiking through the woods with the walking sticks available on the front porch and feeding the bunnies, chickens, quails, and guinea. Baby quails were only a week old and so cute. Gathering eggs with the owners was definitely a treat for the kids. Even better it was the same farm fresh eggs we were served for breakfast. When we arrived they even had a fresh watermelon cut up for us in the fridge, perfect for a hot summer day. Right at sundown the hummingbird moths appear a beautiful sight. The back butterfly bushes are abundant with large swallowtail butterflies. This was truly the best stay we've had anywhere and would highly recommend for anyone. If you love nature and relaxation you will not be disappointed. The owners are some of the nicest people you have ever met. PS bring marshmallows and build a bonfire big hit with the kids when we surprised them with smores.

We stayed four nights at Allen B&B. The accommodations were excellent, and the stay most relaxing and rewarding. Dr. Allen's nature walks are highly educational and extremely enjoyable. Susan Allen is a wonderful host and prepares exquisite food. Allen Acres is great place to "get away from it all" yet to remain comfortable and nurtured. Joe and Cindy Baucum

We have not stayed in a bed and breakfast before, and we did not know what we were missing. The hospitality was tremendous. The rooms clean and spacious. We will stop here every time we are in the area. Loved the wildflowers, butterflies, hummingbirds, and chickens. Fresh cooked breakfast every morning was delicious. This B & B would be perfect for larger gatherings also - there is enough room in the common area and enough separate bedrooms to accommodate.

Rickey Harper Me and My wife really enjoyed our stay ( 2 nights ) at Allen Acres . The rooms were super clean. The breakfast was real good. And being around Charles and Susan made it like being around family. You just can't help but to love them. If I could give higher rating I would.

The Allens were fabulous innkeepers providing excellent food and information about the flora and fauna on their acreage and that of the national forest behind them. A joy for any person with a naturalist bent.

If I could have scored higher than a 5 I would have! Big thumbs up from me. Highly recommend to anyone that has business at Ft. Polk or surrounding area. A short 15 minute drive to Ft. Polk, perfect if you like nature and even better if you like to eat. Much better than any hotel you will ever stay at. Susan and Dr. Allen are great hosts!! I will certainly come back if I'm in the area. Don't miss your chance to experience the best hospitality, in a relaxing setting - it felt like home. Lori, O'fallon, IL

I can't believe how friendly these folks are, even to the extent of inviting us over to look at slide shows of nature. Susan is the hostess with the most-est! She tirelessly ensured we had everything we needed and more in order to enjoy our stay and treated us as if we were her own family. Dr. Allen is so knowledgeable of the plants, animals, birds and insects and loves to share his observations. This place is a must for TDY housing. 15 minutes to the back gate on Louisiana Ave., no traffic and peaceful setting. As a bonus, they have high speed wireless internet.

I stayed at Allen Acres with a few of my co-workers and we were very pleased with our stay. Our hosts were gracious and friendly, and provided the perfect environment for our 4 day stay. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and I will definitely stay here again if I am at Ft Polk for business in the near future.

Charles and Susan Allen are wonderful hosts. If you like to explore nature in detail, this is the right place for you. There is some forest on the premises and Mr. Allen will be delighted to show you around and explain everything. Allen Acres is perfect with children, too. A classic farmstay with all comfort and well working wifi at a very calm and peaceful place. The hardest thing there is to leave when your stay will be over. Try it!
