What a wonderful time we had at this beautiful antebellum home. Beautifully appointed, appropriately for the period, more than made up for the sporadic internet service and lack of television. Our hosts, Jill and Skip, provided us with local history and sights to see, even arranging a Swamp Tour for us. We had many wonderful conversations with them over our scrumptious breakfasts and Jill even sent us on our way with a delicious homemade pumpkin loaf for the long trek back to Canada! I couldn't recommend a place to stay any higher!

We stayed here a few months ago. It was wonderful. I enjoyed the home, the location, and the owners. They made the stay even more enjoyable.

Excellent stay. Jill and Skip were the best hosts anyone could ask for. They supplied any information and directions for the many places we visited. They took the time to visit with us and give us information on the area and history. felt like family when we left. The breakfast was five-star.

I had never stayed at a B&B and found Bienvenue House online. I was pleasantly surprised at the sweet hospitality of Jill and Skip and the atmosphere and ambiance of the house. I enjoyed hearing the history and the ghost stories. Jill and Skip could not have been nicer and more accommodating, and the breakfast was the best I've ever eaten. Loved it!
