Blue Moon Guesthouse

This little house that opened in 2001 has actually been around longer than people might think. Its original location was downtown in the 1900’s near a hotel that housed several travelers. Once it was moved by mules and logs to its new location, it was made into a family home, then flower shop, until it ultimately became what is known today as one of America’s premier venues for roots music, Blue Moon Guesthouse. Here you can meet people traveling from all over the world, dance, and of course, find a comfy dorm to stay in. Come join the fun down in Lafayette by booking your room with Blue Moon Guesthouse today.

Crawfish Haven/Mrs. Rose’s Bed and Breakfast

Although many bed and breakfasts are filled with history, none are quite like Crawfish Haven/Mrs. Rose’s Bed and Breakfast. The story behind the place begins back in 1903, when the house that now serves as the bed and breakfast was built with only a hammer, saw, square, nails, and wooden pegs. A woman named Rose was born and raised there until she and her husband purchased the place themselves. After remodeling, the place was ready for business. To this day it still has the family’s personal touch. Come stop here to rest and while you’re at it, take part of their crawfish excursions as well as other fun events! You’ll be glad you came.

Esprit de Coeur Inn

Esprit de Coeur Inn is not only Lafayette’s premier reception and events venue, but one of the first bed and breakfasts built in in the city in 1890. Formerly known as the Mouton House during the Great Depression, it became one of Lafayette’s first boarding house/bed and breakfasts that served several employees of the railroad as well as travelers. Although it went through a rough patch, the building was picked back up and renovated to what it is now known as Esprit de Coeur Inn (translation: the Spirit of the Heart). Since then it has hosted several special events and provided a wonderful space for many guests to stay at over the years, just as it did in the past.
