Bois des Chenes Bed & Breakfast Inn
Conveniently located near the geographical center of the City of Lafayette, Louisiana, this home (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) survived the Civil War and is an important entity to the history and culture of this city. This home has been owned by Dr. Francis Sterling Mudd of Virginia, who was a relative of Dr. Samuel Mudd of John Wilkes Booth fame, a Lt. Governor of Louisiana and two mayors of Lafayette.
The Mouton Plantation House

The present owners have restored this Acadian style plantation house to its original configuration, taking into consideration some of the changes that were too complicated to undo. Period antiques, primarily of Louisiana French origin, as well as comparable American pieces, compliment this unique architectural gem. Collections of pottery, glass, and antique weapons further enhance the interior of this house. Adjacent to the rear of the plantation house is the Carriage House. Located in the Carriage House are three rooms, each with a private bath.
Carriage House

Each is furnished with treasured antiques of different styles and periods. Tastefully hidden color televisions (with cable) and small refrigerators are provided in each room. The upstairs room is furnished country Acadian style and can accommodate five persons. Two rooms are available downstairs, one in Louisiana Empire style with queen sized bed, and the other in Victorian style with a testered double bed. Two suites are also available in the main plantation house. Each has a sitting room and private bath and have access to the 2nd floor gallery. The Zouave Suite features a wood-burning fireplace.
Louisiana Country Suite

Guests are served a delicious Louisiana style breakfast and are offered complimentary wine and a tour of the Mouton Plantation House. Your host, Coerte Voorhies, speaks french.
