If every region of every state had a bed-and-breakfast like Maison de Memoire we'd plan our trips around our accommodations! The concept is simply perfect: detached cottages sharing the same verdant property yet separate enough from each other to give a true sense of privacy. Lyn's Cajun inspired hot breakfasts were delicious and conveniently delivered in a big basket to the front door each morning accompanied by a discreet knock. We would have loved to relax inside the cottage or on the wraparound porch all day but the area offers so many activities that we were compelled to venture out. Be sure to ask Lyn for recommendations; she is a font of knowledge on the restaurants, tours, and events in the area. As preservation advocates we were delighted to discover that our cottage was a "rescue", it's restoration lovingly chronicled in photos by Ron. It was well-maintained and the decor was charming. And the king bed was incredibly comfortable. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Louisiana and we would not consider staying anywhere else. Vive Maison de Memoire. Still smiling, Marianne and Jeff B.

We enjoyed our cottage at Maison D'Memoire B&B. It was quiet and the breakfasts that were delivered to our door were to die for. We enjoyed a quiet weekend of just relaxing and enjoying time with each other. We hope to go back

A weekend getaway for my wife's birthday and experience some of Cajun country. The autumn cottage was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. We had no idea that autumn cottage was on the national historical register until arriving. This was truly a place to relax and enjoy great food, great shopping for antiques and make wonderful friends. Breakfast was simply amazing.

Beautiful cottage, delicious breakfast, peaceful, restful, private, definitely hope to return one day!

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights recently an what a great experience it was. Lyn is a wonderful host and a fabulous cook. Cottage was very clean and cozy with all necessary amenities. Close enough to Lafayette to enjoy some great dining and shopping. Thanks Lyn, we will be back.

Maison d'Memoire is a really unique place. The cottages are just adorable. It's a really interesting and charming place. And Lyn is the sweetest person you'll ever meet. She is such a great welcoming innkeeper. I also really enjoyed having breakfast delivered to my door in a basket. Really private and romantic. And great food!
5 on May 02, 2011
We stayed in the Autumn Cottage for our wedding night. I was the perfect place for us. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very clean. Our hostess Miss Lyn is absolutely wonderful. The breakfast was delicious. But the best part of our stay was sitting out on the porch in the rocking chairs sipping the lemonade provided and listening to the sounds of nature. It was just so relaxing I wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back.

I surprised my wife with a quiet weekend getaway. We stayed at the Prairie Haven Cottage. It was very clean, comfortable, and well furnished. My wife thinks I am somewhat weird about cleanliness. I check the ceiling fans anytime we stay somewhere and wipe the blades clean when dust is visible. I did not need to clean these fans! I was amazed at how quiet the property is even though it is no more than five minutes from Interstate 12. Ms. Lyn's breakfast was wonderful. It was delivered on time and was hot. Chef Roy's restaurant, just around the corner, was a treat. The people we met in town at the shops were some of the most friendly we have encountered anywhere. We hope to return and want to stay at each home on the property. The money spent to stay at Maison D'Memoire was well worth it for the relaxing weekend.

First time we go in winter. The weather was very cold. The electricity went out for about an hour; but it never dampened the ambiance of my birthday. The glassed in porch was a great spot to enjoy nature and the birds amist the rain and ice. Thank you so very much for providing a little bit of heaven.
5 on February 18, 2011
My wife and I stayed in the Garden Cottage for our 20th wedding anniversary. Everything was wonderful: the antiques that Lyn placed in the different rooms were pleasant, the jacuzzi with the sound of the rain on the tin roof was very romantic, and the breakfast Lyn brought to our door the next morning was incredible. All in all, a very enjoyable way to celebrate our love for each other!
4.4 on January 05, 2011
The food is amazing and the privacy is perfect! I love the century old feel with the modern day convenience. I have visited three times and plan to visit again.
4.2 on January 02, 2011
Ms. Lyn was an awesome hostess! She had everything prepared for our stay. The house was adorable an private. The breakfast each morning was delicious an very well prepared. If their was something you forgot to bring from home, it was already in your house. Their were plenty of towels an linens. The only thing that was not up to our standard was the size of the tv. It was a very small (approx 13 in) tv. Other than that our stay was wonderful! I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. Ms lyn is a doll!

We had a wonderful time! The Garden Cottage was so cozy and very romantic. The Breakfast was awesome! We enjoyed strolling on the grounds and swinging along side the pond. Very peaceful and relaxing, just what we were looking for. We plan to revisit the Maison D'Memoire B&B Cottage again.

I spent a lot of time searching for something memorable & relaxing for my husband & I to do for our 10 year anniversary & came across Maison d'Memoire on a google search. I loved every minute of it & can't wait to be able to go back.
5 on November 03, 2010
Its was a very pleasant , peaceful getaway that we will enjoy again.
5 on October 30, 2010
Very nice place. The owner of the property was very polite and helpful. The breakfast was the best breakfast I ever had. She is defiantly a gourmet chef. I give maison d memoire five stars. I plan to stay their again in the future.

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon, and it was everything we thought it would be: unique, private, and with plenty of romance all around. We brought our food for lunch / dinner, and had fun using the kitchen. The big breakfast was a treat (as we usually don't each such heavy food, but it tasted great!). We will definitely consider going back again, and we would recommend it to friends. What we liked most of all was that you have a truly private space, i.e. this isn't a room in a house. This means you can be as loud as you want (wink wink), and no one will hear. That was a big deal to us, as this was one of our special romantic weekends. Notes: there are mosquitoes, and you'll also hear the sound of the train / nearby cars when they pass. This didn't make our experience any less enjoyable, but if you're looking for a "completely off the beaten path" sort of hideaway, this isn't your place. Also, there's not much "to do" nearby, so this is best if you just want to lie around, sleep, be quiet and romantic with each other.

Lyn and Ken take care of everything you could possible ask for! All the little things they think of are great! From the bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival to the wonderful breakfast each morning and everything in between! The privacy is great! We stayed at Sweet Surrender for our 13th wedding anniversary. Very romantic!!
5 on February 21, 2010
Beautiful home, decorated to the T. Great service. Loved the jacuzzi, the lake was beautiful. Lyn was so hospitable and the artwork she did in the cottages is incredible. The privacy of having a house to yourself is great and the price is very reasonable. We will be back!

From the moment you open the front door, you step into another moment in time- all the personal touches are there. My husband and I loved this place and will be returning!
5 on June 11, 2009
It was wonderful. We checked in and we were greeted right away. The grounds were beautiful, the hummingbirds were out, the cabin was so clean. It was so relaxing, we are looking forward to another stay in the future!
5 on May 29, 2009
Our quaint cottage was straight out of the "Frog and Toad" story. The breakfast on our porch overlooking the pond made it difficult to head back to city life.
5 on May 08, 2009
Brings you back in time...we would love to live here.
5 on April 22, 2009
For a totally private, romantic trip down memory lane, you must stay at this charmer of a place. 4 cottages with everything you need and beautiful grounds you can have a romantic stroll and feel the tension melt away.

Maison D' Memoire is our new "go to" place for relaxation and romance. The sunset over the lake is breathtaking. Whether sitting in the swing, fishing, watching the sunset or relaxing in the jacuzzi, you will find no better place to do it than at Maison D' Memoire. This is the cleanest and best B&B we've ever stayed at. It is the attention given to the details that speak volumes of the time and effort put into making your stay here the best that it can be. The Guidrys are awesome hosts.

5 on July 27, 2008
We stayed in one of the cottages at Maison D'Memoire in July of 08. These cottages are wonderful, and the breakfasts are to die for! Serene, private, and very romantic, these restored 100 + year old homes are located close enough to the interstate to make site seeing trips a breeze as well as to partake from any of the fine dining establishments in the area. The property is beautiful with a lake full of fish. Lynn and Ken have thought of every thing to make your stay the most memorable one ever! You won't be disappointed!
5 on July 23, 2008
This property exceeded our expectations.
5 on July 21, 2008

The Sunset Surrender Cottage was all we expected. Hospitable, well-kept. The grounds were well-kept and enjoyable; to stroll around the lake with swing near by. Quiet, peaceful; back to your simpler way of life anyhow for 2 days. Really loved it.

5 on July 05, 2008
My husband and I wanted one night "away from it all" and this is our place to do it! Quiet, beautifully tended, every detail of the cottage, landscape, and gourmet breakfast shows that our hosts are truly gifted to please. We have been there three times, so it has become a tradition that we look forward to once a year--wish it could be more! If you love peace and solitude, beautiful surroundings, charming, Cajun decor (which stirred my husband's childhood memories), coffee on the porch, sole fellowship with your dearest, and a scrumptious breakfast delivered to your doorstep (at a pleasant hour), this B&B is can become part of your romantic tradition, or just a quiet refuge from the madding crowd.
5 on July 03, 2008
This B&B I consider a 5 star. Most welcoming, very clean, very accommodating, and the Friendliness and hospitality was great! Highly recommend...

The Autumn Cottage was our home for 4 days as we explored Lafayette, New Iberia, Lake Fausse Pointe SP, Avery Island, & Franklin. Each morning we had a hearty breakfast delivered to our door. The nicely decorated cottage welcomed us home each evening to a clean, very private & quiet rural setting. This 1880's cottage contains all the modern conveniences. We give this cottage " 5 Stars".

My fiance had finished his Phd and I wanted to give him some nice time together to relax. We stayed at the Autum cottage and were pleased with the beauty of the decoration and details, comfort and privacy that we enjoyed of. The fact that it is a full cottage with everything that you need as opposed to a hotel room makes it more comfy and dear to me. The innkeeper is adorable and the webpage has a wonderful interface, user-friendly to book your cottage in a few clicks. They also offer different packages for you to purchase a romantic game or dinner. I highly reccomend it.
