On May 21-22, 2016 my husband and I were guests at A Chateau on the Bayou in Raceland, Louisiana. The wonderful hospitality shown by the hostess Claudette Pitre was amazing! We found the rooms to be quaint and lovely. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the back porch early in the morning. The quiet sounds of nature were relaxing. It brought us back to our childhood days. It was neat and very clean. The breakfast was delightful. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, relaxing get away, this is the place for you. Ms. Pitre was also knowledgeable on info of attractions.

On May 21-22, 2016 my husband and I had the pleasure of staying ay,"A Chateau on the Bayou Bed and Breakfast." It was a great experience. The rooms were quaint and quiet comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting on the back porch early in the morning! The sounds of nature were reminiscent of our early childhood. Our breakfast was quite delicious. Claudette knows her way around the kitchen. If you are looking for a nice quiet get away, close to many attractions,this is the place for you! Our hostess was quiet knowledgeable about places of interest and has access to tours.

This was my second visit and it was as enjoyable as the first. I'm a corporate pilot, so I stay in a lot of hotels. Miss Claudette's B&B is a comfortable and refreshing change of pace. The rooms are nice and very comfortable; although, I don't spend much time in them because there is always so much to do, see, and eat in the area. I rode the air boat tour again and highly recommend it. Be sure to request the supercharged boat. Also, Miss Claudette recommended a tour of a local distillery. I have a new favorite rum and all of the ingredients are locally produced. I recommend the distillery tour even if you are not an alcohol drinker. Miss Claudette provided many other tour options but we just didn't have enough time. Maybe next time, Miss Claudette!

If you want a clean, cozy, economical place to relax in a quiet, rural environment to get away from it all, but with the conveniences of internet and TV at your fingertips, then “A Chateau on the Bayou” is for you! Claudette, the hostess and owner, was most accommodating; and she had the scoop on places to go and things to do in the Bayou Lafourche area and surrounding Cajun country. Her mouthwatering home cooked breakfasts were prepared with a touch of love that made them extra special. The covered porch along the back of the house provided a comfortable vantage point from which we marveled at the flash of lightning, the rumble of thunder and the gentle cascade of falling rain from a thunder storm rolling across the bayou. And, if you want an up-close look at southern swamps and marshes adorned with moss laden cypress trees, bald eagle nests, water hyacinth, herons, egrets, turtles, bullfrogs and BIG alligators, then take the exciting airboat tour on nearby Lake Des Allemands, which we found to be both exhilarating and educational. Yes, A Chateau on the Bayou was just what we were looking for, and we can’t wait to return. ~ Michael and Debbie

Chateau on the Bayou B & B was the perfect oasis during my visit to historic Bayou Lafourche. Located only 35 miles due south of New Orleans, Ms. Claudette's B & B provided the rest and relaxation needed after fun days filled with touring this gorgeous historic region of south Louisiana. Short distances away are antebellum plantations including Oak Alley, Houmas House, Laura Plantation and many others. The region is filled with massive 200 plus year old oak trees, alligator and swamp tours, airboat tours, lakes for great fishing, the resort town of Grand Isles, the historic town of Thibodeaux and numerous destinations that celebrate Louisiana's rich cultural heritage. The accommodations at Chateau B & B are exceptional. The large comfy bedrooms are pristine as are the clean bathrooms and great living space with welcoming large kitchen and breakfast area. Ms. Claudette prepares the best breakfast south of New Orleans. The wrap-around front porch and outdoor bayou-side location features areas for relaxing and enjoying a Louisiana sunset. Ms. Claudette provides hospitality with a capital H. I highly recommend a multi-night stay at Chateau on the Bayou B & B. Steve Albert, New York, New York

I had the pleasure of staying at the Chateau on the Bayou B&B for a week. Ms. Claudette was a wonderful host and bent over backwards to make sure I was taken care of and the accommodations were top notch yet very affordable. The house is beautiful, very quaint and full of southern charm. Ms. Claudette made me feel very comfortable and right at home. Because the Chateau is located just a few miles from the highway, it was easy to drive around to neighboring towns and even north to New Orleans. I definitely would recommend taking time to visit with Ms. Claudette and enjoy a stay at the Chateau on the Bayou B&B. I hope to visit again some day!

My husband and I needed a place to stay for two nights just before the end of our vacation. We wanted to be fairly close to New Orleans but still out on the bayou. Claudette had been planning to take a break from having guests, but she graciously took us in. She was so helpful, providing all kinds of information about what to see and do in the area, where to eat, etc. And her breakfasts were absolutely scrumptious--perhaps the fluffiest omelet and most awesome French toast I have ever had. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the back porch and would have spent significant time in the hammock if we had stayed longer! We bathed in the claw-foot tub; water was hot and water pressure was very good (not true of all B&Bs we stayed in on this trip). We were missing our own cats, left at home, but Baby and Minu, a little shy at first, warmed up to us and invited us to give belly rubs and ear scratches. We highly recommend A Chateau!

Excellent B&B, bien positionné dans le triangle Thibodeaux, Houma, NO et situé dans un environnement très agréable sur le bord du bayou. Accueil très chaleureux et convivial de son hôtesse, une étape sympathique à recommander.

Quiet place by the Bayou, nice rooms, cute garden and surrounding, and above all, a particular attention from Claudette to her guests ! What a great time !!! Thnank you Claudette !

Claudette, hostess, is a breathe of fresh air and sunshine combined. Knowledgeable about the area, kind and helpful. Explained about need for shower, she made calls to switch rooms for our arrival date. Attentative to details. Restaurant suggestions excellent. Plantation tour, package for airboat ride & swamp tour all a Lousiana historical flavor. See you again, Claudette! Blessings, The Jaques

This is a beautiful home away from home and we look forward to many more visits. Claudette the Host is Gracious, Charming and eager to share her beautiful home and its 'interesting history. Everything is clean, well maintained, convenient to all of the wonderful sites and good eating to enjoy when you visit South Louisiana. We stayed for two nights while visiting family nearby and so happy to find this in lieu of motels.
5 on July 01, 2012
My husband and I have enjoyed staying in a number of B&Bs while traveling in the US so we were thrilled to discover this wonderful place so close to home. A Chateau on the Bayou is beautiful and Claudette Pitre is everything you might desire in a host. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, spotless, and very nicely furnished. Breakfast is incredible. And this peaceful, relaxing spot is just minutes away from some of the most interesting sights and people in the country. We cannot wait to go back!!

Thank you Claudette. Your website doesn't give justice to the lovely peaceful setting, with frogs and crickets, fish jumping and such great meals. Thanks for organising boat trips and fishing. Wanted to stay on, but it was booked. Next time

A Chateau on the Bayou was an amazing experience! My first time at a B&B and I loved it! Claudette is the sweetest host ever! Definitely coming back!

i have traveled to many states and stayed at many b&b's... Miss Claudette's was by far the best! From her wonderful hospitality, louisianna charm, knowledge of the surrounding area, and her awesome homemade breakfasts... She not only made us feel at home she made us feel like part of her family. Her beautiful property overlooks Laforche Bayou and offers a beautiful, serene atmosphere. My boyfriend and I were able to relax on the back porch rocking chairs, walk the bank of the bayou, and lay together on the hammock! It is conveniently located between New Orleans and Houma. If you are staying in Louisianna this is a must see!!!
4.2 on March 28, 2012
Claudette's rooms were immaculate and the grounds on the bayou well kept. She is a bubbly, sociable hostess, and prepared a delightful breakfast that we enjoyed with other guests. Our only wish for the meal was that the coffee be more delicious and less weak. The room was perhaps a bit overfurnished, meaning that a rocking chair in the corner was almost unusable unless moved to another part of the room. All that said, we'd gladly come back!

I had a wonderful time staying at Claudette's property. All aspects were wonderful - including room cleanliness, her great breakfasts, and the care Claudette took to ensure we had a memorable trip, from arranging tours to making local recommendations. I particularly recommend one of her package deals.

Claudette's warm southern hospitality combined with her beautiful and cozy home were a wonderful addition to our visit with family in Louisiana. Hearing that we had never tasted a persimmon, she was quick to pick several from her tree and serve them to us. Claudette was always eager to meet our needs. We will be returning to the Chateau and I encourage everyone to enjoy Claudette and her lovely bed and breakfast.

I loved everything about the Chateau...the friendliness and southern hospitality of the owner (such a wonderful and interesting lady to talk to!), the beautiful house and decor, the clean and cozy rooms and bathroom, the scenic view of the bayou from the porch and peaceful surroundings. For light sleepers, you may want to bring your ear plugs because of the traffic on the road at night, but I'm a good sleeper, so it didn't bother me. I stayed two nights and would come back again.

My family and I had a great time at the Chateau on the Bayou. It was perfect for what we needed. I emailed with Claudette leading up to our trip and she was always very responsive. She helped us find a few things in the area we wanted to do. We went fishing close to the b & b and she helped us with directions everywhere, made dining and event recommendations. We were able to cook the fish we caught and had a fabulous time. There are plenty of areas to sit around privately with your group. The bayou is breathtaking. Waking up on a beautiful October morning looking over the 'fire on the bayou' is the way to start every day. We had a phenomenal time and Claudette was a huge part of it. Thanks for a great time!!!!

We had a pleasant stay at the chateau. We payed the top rate and that was a bit high.

Excellent. Beautiful grounds would recommend highly
4.6 on July 23, 2011
Thanks, Claudette. We loved your B&B. We sat by the bayou, stretched out on the hammocks and enjoyed a lovely afternoon. Breakfast was delicious, all of it, but I especially loved the pecan/blueberry topping on the beignets. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

My husband and I stayed in bedroom 1 for our honeymoon and absolutely adored Claudette's B&B. The rooms were clean and it was quiet. The breakfasts she made every morning were FANTASTIC and we really can't wait to go back. The house is located right on the bayou and we spent time hanging out in the hammock and sitting on the dock looking at nature. It was nice to get away from city life for awhile and be able to appreciate nature in all its beauty. Claudette went above and beyond to make us comfortable and even had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us. Initially we were nervous because her prices were SO AFFORDABLE we were convinced something must be wrong with the place, but it was absolutely perfect and an excellent value. This is a place you could go for your honeymoon or even bring your entire family too for the weekend. It's amazing what Claudette has done. We had our own covered parking area and Claudette recommended places we could go and things we could see. We ended up going on an amazing airboat tour (even though we live right outside New Orleans) and we went to a nice little restaurant for dinner. It was perfect. Not only would I recommend it to my family and friends; we can't wait to go back again. If you want something different and hate paying some outrageous price for a little hotel room with the same ol same ol continental breakfast go to this B&B you will NOT be disappointed.

We stumbled on this wonderful place on our first visit to LA and loved it! Ms Claudette is not to miss.

I very much recommend Ms. Claudette Pitre’s B&B. Her thoughtfulness, hospitality, and wonderful meals will not be forgotten. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the atmosphere relaxing. (BTW, you might want to request her delicious shrimp and corn chowder!) (June, 2011)
5 on June 07, 2011
We were very pleased with our accommodations. Claudette was a great hostess. The beignets topped with blueberries and pecans made a wonderful breakfast.
5 on June 03, 2011
This was our first time to stay at a B&B, and we were not disappointed. I was in town to help my daughter move out of the dorm at the end of the semester and would be in town for one night. I decided if I was going to spend the money, I wanted to support a locally owned business instead of a motel chain. Claudette was so personable, friendly, and accommodating. She made it so easy to be there. The house and grounds are beautiful! Sitting on the porch early in the morning, it was so peaceful watching the bayou flow by lazily. As I drank my coffee enjoying the breeze, the sound of a boat motor could be heard. Soon a fisherman puttered by, checking his traps. Two squirrels played at the edge of the yard as snowy egrets, perched in trees, watched the water's surface for fish. Talk about local color and setting! We will be back!!
5 on May 31, 2011
My husband and I had a great time at A Chateau on the Bayou B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed Claudette's company and her delicious breakfasts. You'll have a very pleasant stay here in bayou country visiting the small towns and the Cajun atmosphere.

A group of 6 old high school friends spent an unforgettable night at A Chateau on the Bayou. It could not have been better! We spent the afternoon/evening together in the lovely backyard overlooking the scenic tree lined bayou sipping wine, reminiscing and catching up with each other's lives. We grew up in the area but since have scattered to follow careers and raise families. What a reunion! Claudette, the Chateau's hostess, could not have been more hospitable. The chateau was perfect to allow us to visit in comfort. We had our morning coffee on the wonderful back porch lined with rocking chairs and then went inside for a delicious breakfast to delight anyone's taste; fresh fruit and yogurt parfait, yummy french toast, sausage, and scones. This turned out to be the best slumber party ever! Thank you, Claudette! We will be back!! Debbie Z. Toups

My family spent the weekend with Ms. Claudette and had a wonderful time. The B & B is so charming and we felt so welcome there. The breakfasts were delicious, especially the Danish pancake with fresh lemon juice from the lemon tree in the yard. We really enjoyed ourselves and will absolutely stay again if we are in the area.

We had a wonderful time at the Chateau on the bayou. We felt like we were right at on. What a special place. The swing and hammock for two, near the bayou was a pleasant surprise.

We enjoyed our stay at A Chateau on the Bayou B & B when we traveled to attend my 30 year high school class reunion. Claudette was such a charming hostess. She accomodated all of our needs & prepared a most delicious breakfast for us after our late night on the bayou at my reunion. She has a very lovely home right on the bayou. It was a very pleasant, peaceful stay, and we would recommend this B & B to anyone visiting the area. Theresa & Tom
5 on March 03, 2011
The most tranquil and relaxing getaway that we have experienced in a very long time. Wonderful breakfast every morning prepared and served by Claudette, the hostess. We especially enjoyed having our coffee out on the back porch or on the patio area before breakfast. The backyard is surrounded by beautiful flowers and foliage. We stayed in Bedroom #1, which was very nice, and the clawfoot tub was very relaxing. We would recommend this B&B for anyone looking for a very relaxing experience.
4.2 on February 27, 2011
Claudette and her two cats welcome guests right into their home, which is not separated from the guest area, as in so many B & B's. We were welcomed to get drinks from the refridgerator and order breakfast as we wanted it. Our first floor room and adjoining bath were spotless and attractive. We especially enjoyed the tour of a nearby bayou with Roland Torres, which was information provided by Claudette.

My husband surprised me this Valentine's with a weekend get away. It was so pleasant and peaceful which was exactly what I needed. We were the only couple at the house, so it was wonderfully quiet. Claudette was so pleasant from the moment we pulled up! She gave excellent recommendations of places to eat and see. I regret that we didn't take her recommendation for a swamp tour. We stayed in bedroom number one, which was full of windows that made it so cheery. My favorite part were the claw foot bathtub in our bathroom. It was super relaxing and so lovely to be in with my husband on such a romantic weekend. The bathtub was closely followed by the hammock by the bayou. It was so nice to find such a lovely place so close to home. I hope to visit this place again and again!
4.2 on January 12, 2011
We loved our stay and was welcomed with a clean, comfortable room 5. We enjoyed sitting outdoors in the evening to watch the water with quiet time to relax and wind down. Breakfast is better than any restaurant. I highly recommend staying here.
4.8 on September 06, 2010
My husband and I stayed here in bedroom #5 and couldn't have been more pleased. The setting is just perfect for relaxing and just taking in life on the bayou. The only thing I regret is not having longer to visit with Claudette, the owner, which is just like an old friend and full of hospitality. We will definitely go back next time we are heading through the area. I would recommend Chateau on the Bayou to everyone!
5 on September 02, 2010
A Chateau on the Bayou is the kind of place one can easily settle into ... Immaculately clean and comfortable ... all the comforts of home. Ms. Claudette, the owner, made us feel instantly welcome, and bent over backward to provide us with anything we could possibly need. There was a multitude of snacks available to us around the clock including fresh fruit. We even had access to the refrigerator for milk or other beverages. Ms. Claudette cooked a hearty, delicious breakfast, and we leisurely chatted with our host while we ate. There is a rocker on the porch and a swing in the back yard. Both overlook a beautiful stretch of Bayou Lafourche. Our only regret is not having more time to relax on the porch. A Chateau on the Bayou is definitely a place we will return to when we find ourselves back on the bayou! ..... Emily & Frank Komitsky, Houston, TX
It was so nice meeting both of you, Emily and Frank. Felt like you were old friends that I had known for years. Look forward to having you as guests, again, one day.

Ms. Claudette made us feel very welcome from the moment we entered her home. She was very well equipped with maps, brochures and recommendations that were excellent. The rooms were very cozy, relaxing, and comfortable. The backyard was so serene and peaceful. We enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings and chatting with other guests. We would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast while visiting in the area.

We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful B&B for 5 nights while visiting family in the area. This was our first experience staying at a B&B and will certainly not be our last. We will return here on our next visit to the area. Claudette is a very dynamic host, friendly, informative, and accommodating. We feel like she is now part of our family. The rooms were clean, cozy, quiet, and inviting. Each morning breakfast consist of a beautiful plate of fresh fruit, various scones, homemade pecan sticky buns, hot out of the oven, or omelettes made from fresh yard eggs, etc. What a delightful experience for my entire family of 4. You will love this B&B!

Claudette, is a very nice host. We stayed there for 4 nights, while visiting family in Houma. I slept really well all 4 nights, as Claudette put us up in one of her quietist rooms. She even made us the most yummy egg white omlettes with colorful peppers for breakfast. We will definitely stay there again, when we go back to Houma, La

This is the best B&B I have stayed in southern LA! Sitting on the porch or on the patio in her backyard overlooking Bayou Lafourche is perfect for a relaxing morning or afternoon! The inside is full of amenities! The rooms are extremely clean, homey, and cozy! Mrs. Pitre gets a perfect A+ for her hospitality, and I can tell she loves and takes pride in her home/buisness by the way she cares of her guests and her place! I definitely recommend "A Chateau on the Bayou" for anyone looking for comfort, charm, and a home away from home even if it is just for a one night stay.

I had a very nice two week stay at A Chateau on the Bayou while in the area on business. The building and grounds are very well maintained, and the proprietor is very congenial and most helpful. We even saw an alligator in the bayou one morning. A very comfortable place to stay.

This B and B is in a quiet, rural area and the host, Claudette, is warm and gracious. The rooms are impeccably clean and the yard is a great place to swing in a hammock. We would return without hesitation. Dave and Pat Pignatello

Claudette, we just wanted you to know what a fantastic time we had all over southern Louisiana. Your B&B and hospitality played a huge part in why we can't wait to come back one day. Here's to new friendships, new places, and hopefully new amazing experiences for all of us. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
