Located in rural Vernon Parish only 14 miles from Fort Polk, we offer nature in a very natural site and honor the military per diem rate. Many wildflowers, trees, butterflies, birds, leaf cutter ants, etc. will be seen most of the year. Farm fresh eggs for breakfast daily from several kinds of chickens plus guineas. You can take a hike on the trails or signup for a guided nature hike. Photography is encouraged. The night sky is spectacular plus fireflys, owls, hummingbird moths, and many other animals. The house is a cozy five bedroom with a large common living room.

Wow Charles and Susan were such friendly hosts. If you are looking to have an authentic Southern Cajun cooking experience this is the place. If you are looking for excellent Asian cuisine, this is still the place. The property is beautiful, I highly recommend a guided hike with Dr. Allen - he is a wealth of knowledge.

Dr. Allen and Susan are warm and generous hosts who are clearly dedicated to their guests, exceeding all of our expectations! Susan enthusiastically accommodated our restricted dietary needs with a tremendous variety of creative and well-prepared dishes. Dr. Allen fascinated us with his extensive knowledge of native plants as we explored his vast acreage; discovered his charming, whimsical garden art; and strolled through peaceful, pristine forest areas. The rooms are spacious, attractively furnished, and immaculately clean. The living area is stocked with botanical reading material sure to interest the avid gardener or naturalist. We are looking forward to many more relaxing and educational visits in the future! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Allen Acres B&B is an utterly unique and enjoyable experience on so many levels. The hospitality is superb and the accommodations are excellent. Charles and Susan Allen make you feel like family. Susan is a wonderful cook and a delightful and interesting hostess. The expansive grounds leave more than can be fully explored in a few days, but Dr. Allen is so knowledgeable about the plant life that it is all but inconceivable that there could be a question he could not answer. There is much for any member of a family to enjoy, with chickens, quail and guineas and garden spaces designed with imagination and humor. I’m looking forward to the next visit.

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.
