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.

I loved Splendor Farms - all of it! The breakfast alone is worth the trip. Can you say gourmet? Fresh? Innovative? But besides that, the rooms were comfortable and roomy. The animals were fat and happy. The trail ride was geared to my horsemanship abilities, and the trailguide was friendly and helpful. There was as much to do as one would want to do, but my favorite (after breakfast) was just being lazy by the pool. I hope to return soon and often. - KM

Kelly, our breakfast at Splendor Farms was the absolute best we have ever had at any B&B! It was not only "gourmet," but also just wholesome goodness. I loved the starter yogurt-granola-fresh fruit parfaits in your fantastic dining room, the wonderful Louisiana coffee, the fresh eggs and bacon and muffins. Your hens must be the happiest ones alive to lay such good eggs! Hope to see you again real soon!!

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a couple of nights and we had the most relaxing time. Kelly was so kind and hospitable throughout, always making sure we had what we needed. The rooms were nice, pool was great, and it was nice to ride the horses around. Lots of cute animals to look at all around too. Also the neighboring towns offer delicious meals and good local-brewed beer. There's also a trustworthy mechanic nearby if you have car-troubles :) I would come back in a heartbeat. Kelly made us feel like we were right at home. If you're looking for a place to get away and forget about your troubles and just relax, this is the spot.

(We stayed at Splendor Farms a few years ago, and we loved it. Here's what we wrote in the Guest Book at splendorfarms.com) Mama Kell, We only spent a weekend on your farm, but it felt like a week in paradise... ...in a beautiful dining room fit for a king (or a family of 18 farmers), at what might be the largest dining room table in Louisiana, we feasted on fresh country salads, gourmet pasta dishes, rum-soaked bread puddings, hot blueberry French toast, fresh granola and yogurt, the fluffiest egg frittatas I have ever seen (almost went up to the ceiling), duck roasted to a succulent perfection, and many other delicious homemade dishes straight from your kitchen and into our stomachs... ...we stayed in rooms so comfortable, we felt like it was a home away from home, except our homes aren't as nice.... ...we were taken for long walks on gravel paths through sundrenched early-morning forests to mysterious Southern rivers by two of the friendliest dogs known to man (or woman) - Shep, who is 7 but doesn't act a day over 4, and Coco... ...we played with Silly Sally and 9 other assorted cats and kittens... ...we briefly considered purchasing all 28 miniature dachshunds as we thought we could not get a better security system than this in all of New York City... ...we rode horses through meadows, dodging the occasional bull, and felt like real cowboys and cowgirls, and not the city dudes we are... ...we stewed ourselves in your hottub and cooled ourselves in your pool... ...we strolled through rich gardens, hot houses, and chicken coops, and felt what it must be like to live on a farm... Thanks for showing us true New Orleans Southern hospitality we won't forget...hope to see you again soon! - Richard, Yana and Ed of New York City
