Come enjoy a relaxing stay in this
country Victorian home, A Chateau
on the Bayou, located on the
banks of Bayou Lafourche - 30 minutes from the New Orleans airport, 10 minutes from Thibodaux, and 15 minutes from Houma and Luling.

Rest in the hammock and watch the bayou flow slowly by or rock in the comfortable rockers on the back porch. Watch the water birds searching the floating vegetation for food. Catch sight of a bald eagle soaring over the bayou where fish are jumping. Catch a glimpse of an alligator raise its head above water or an egret perched on the wharf.  Hear the sounds of birds, crickets,
owls, and bullfrogs. 


I must tell you of the wonderful experience we had at your
lovely Bed & Breakfast in Raceland, Louisiana! 

We enjoyed every minute of your wonderful hospitality. Your Bed & Breakfast can certainly be called a "home away from home".

When looking for accommodations, I will always choose a bed & breakfast rather than a hotel.

A Chateau on the Bayou is conveniently located near New Orleans, Luling, Thibodaux, and Houma,
surrounded by Cajun bayous, swamps, and marshes. Visit us for your Southern Louisiana vacation!

Welcome to Louisiana!  Your innkeeper will be Claudette L. Pitre, a native Cajun born here in Lafourche Parish.
She is a retired elementary school counselor and teacher who has worked with Kindergarten through third grade children and parents.

She opened her bed and breakfast in January of 2006, and has had various visitors from all over the world.  She has traveled extensively around the world, herself, and welcomes everyone from all nationalities into her home to experience the cajun culture and hospitality in this area.

Early French explorers found a fork splitting off the Mississippi River at present day Donaldsonville, about 60 miles from the Gulf. They named the slow moving distributary Lafourche – “the fork or the splitting".

Bayou Lafourche still flows in the same path today. It runs just over 100 miles through the middle of the swamps, marshes, and sugarcane fields of Lafourche Parish on its southward path through Thibodaux, Raceland, Galliano, and Golden Meadow before emptying into the Gulf of Mexico near Grand Isle, Louisiana. Today you may see shrimpers and crabbers as you travel down the bayou. In season, you can buy fresh seafood directly from them.
