Bed & Breakfast

An alternative to hotel and motels, B&Bs offer accommodations ranging from romantic getaways and quaint country living to historic steps back in time and chances to experience a little more of the local culture. Some even come with a ghost story or two. Here in Acadiana, you can find all of the above and then some.

Offering hospitality through guest house lodging with meal accommodations is an old concept, but the bed and breakfast didn't become a mainstream phenomenon in the U.S. until the 70s, according to bedandbreakfast.com. A renewed interest in preserving this country's historic architecture was prompted by the 1976 U.S. Bicentennial, which was followed by new federal and state legislation tax credits to preserve historic structures and properties.

Of course, not all bed and breakfasts are established in buildings on the National Registry of Historic Places. There are plenty of other options from cozy cabins and cottages to glamping sites for luxury weekends outdoors.
