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.

Great Environmental Experience!

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

Home away from home

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.

Like Family

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.

a true respite

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.

Felt like home!!!

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
