My teen children and I stayed in the Good Suite. It was lovely. There was plenty of room. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas. It was comfortable and inviting. Breakfast was delicious and enough to even satisfy my children. We enjoyed the greeting we recived upon arrival from Milo, the neighborhood cat. I wish we could have stayed longer. I look forward to taking my husband next time I am in the area.

Great anniversary getaway, loved Louisiana. This was our 8th bed and breakfast experience, and it was great however we never actually met our innkeeper. She was very helpful over the phone and provided complimentary breakfast at a nearby restaurant. Just not what we were used to, but still a good experience.

We will definitely be returning in future visits. Thank you so much for the extremely quaint, relaxing atmosphere. Not only is your B&B absolutely beautiful and extremely well-kept, but the location is awesome and in walking distance for us during our adventures during this stay. Thank you again for the outstanding mini vacation!

We only stayed one night, and it was wonderful. The Good House is very clean, incredibly welcoming, and very close to town. It is located in a very nice neighborhood too. We couldn't have ask for a better experience. Nancy is a gem, and a heck of a good cook!

We stayed at The Good House in Nachitoche, LA for part of our honeymoon and it was a wonderful experience. Our hostess was friendly and attentive. Beautiful house as well. Lots of delicious local food also.
