      Charming apartment

      This is a very lovingly decorated and appointed apartment. Deborah has clearly put her heart into it, and provided everything you need - including some really great breakfast items. The refrigerator is stocked with what I assume are homemade mini-quiches, yogurt, orange juice, bananas, etc. Although not a bed and breakfast, it almost felt like it. Speaking of beds, the mattress was excellent, which is a 'must' for us. Deborah wasn't intrusive but checked in occasionally to see if we needed anything, and if we did, it appeared quickly. She's a great hostess. There are just two reasons I did not give this five stars. One, the house sits on a main street through the town of Abbeville. Morning rush hour can get a little noisy. If you like to sleep in, take some ear plugs. If you like to get up and at it early, no problem. Two, although the thought and care put into the decor is amazing, it's kind of crowded, especially for guys. My husband, who is tall but slender, felt very constrained. There was just a little too much furniture for the space, and it didn't seem that it was all necessary. In fact, if you wanted to use the pull out couch for two additional people, it looked like it would be very difficult. But if you are traveling in this area, I think it would be hard to find a more lovely or comfortable place to stay. Check it out.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great stay!

        We were in town for a wedding, and this was a wonderful place to stay. Close to church and downtown. Lots of great restaurants and things to do in the neighborhood. Loved that the place was decorated for Christmas, especiallly the huge poinsettia bush beside the property. Very nice and accommodating owner, as well. Thank you!

          Perfect launching pad for Acadian tour

          My stay at The Guest House in Abbeville far exceeded my already high expectations. This charming suite is comfortable and well curated, nestled in a lovely town with a kind host. I was visiting family and sites spread between Lafayette, Baton Rouge and Morgan City. This is a wonderful location...even just to browse the historic little town itself: great food, people and homes. Deborah was attentive but never pestering. What a marvelous renovation (including landscaping!) she has competed on this beautiful property. I never lacked for a thing, plus enjoyed thoughtful extras, like chocolates, bath scrubs and even treats for my canine travel partner! I would stay again and recommend to anyone passing through.
