Things to Do

Things to do right outside the door

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the  Bayou Teche right outside our front door. Borrow a canoe or pirogue and go for a paddle; take a guided pontoon boat ride to New Iberia for lunch and a pub crawl; or set up an excursion to Lake Fausse Point for swimming or a sunset cruise with snacks and beverages. Our pontoon boat (The Mayfair) can accomodate up to twelve people. Available by advance reservation as part of your stay package option.

Shop Jeanerette, home to the oldest bakery in the U.S. and the brand new Main Street Mercantile.
