The SpaceThis house is sometimes called Big Brown as it is one of the biggest house in the area and very brown. Downstairs there are 2 private bedrooms - one with a king size bed and a private bathroom (no shower) and another with a queen sized bed and a full sized futon. There is also a single futon/couch that can be used for overflow in that room. There is a full bath with shower located just outside these 2 rooms. Upstairs there are 2 sleeping areas (one semi private screened off with King size bed, the other a private bedroom with 2 full sized futons) and a bathroom with a shower located in between these 2 sleeping spaces. There is a single futon in the common area that can be used for overflow. The upstairs and downstairs are for rent separately but can be combined for larger parties. Please inquire if this is desired. Guest AccessThere’s a keyed front door for guests. There is a coffee maker upstairs and I will something (oatmeal or a cereal) for a quick breakfast if needed. Guests are welcome to store food from outings in the refrigerator. Kitchen use will be limited and by request only. Also access to washer and dryer by request. Interaction with GuestsGuests have their privacy but I would be available to recommend places and things to do beyond what’s listed here. The NeighborhoodIt’s quiet. The only noise comes from cars and trucks going by on Nina Highway and a few motorcycles. It’s 6/10 of a mile to the nearest store, you could walk it, but when it’s 90 degrees and humid, you might not want to. There are wild turkeys in the yard now and then as well as many kinds of birds. Getting AroundThe town of Breaux Bridge is 7 miles away. A car is of necessity if you want to see the area. Here are some highlights: (URL HIDDEN) Lake Martin: 10 miles away from the house The Cypress Island Nature Preserve at Lake Martin, just outside of Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, is home to a swampy ecosystem that's full of wildlife and native plants. Unlike the deeper swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin, Lake Martin can be easily reached by car and much of the surrounding area can be explored on foot or in a canoe or kayak. The preserve is currently owned and managed by the Nature Conservancy, who work to keep the lake clean and ecologically sound. They also maintain a visitor's center and a boardwalk over the swamp at the South end of the lake. There are fishing boats and tours available in the basin on the levee road in Henderson. I have no recommendations having never been on one. To hear local music check out this website (URL HIDDEN) This will give you a run down of all the live and radio cajun and zydeco shows in the area. Also KRVS is the local NPR affiliate at 88.7 on the dial featuring many shows of local and Louisiana music. Food: There are many restaurants in the area. Some favorites are: Le Cafe- in Breaux Bridge - fried food queens, plus burgers Glenda’s - in the country outside Breaux Bridge Crawfish Town - on Grande Route near Henderson /I-10 exit Boudin Shop - at Henderson /I-10 exit ( a misnomer, good local food but do not make their own Boudin. If you can ,order ahead and take out, as there’s a wait and it’s not the most comfy place.) For a serious/hilarious overview and highly opinionated look at the Boudin situation in Louisiana and elsewhere, check out (URL HIDDEN) Most grocery stores in Acadiana make their own sausage. Close by we have Hebert’s Supermarket on Henderson Highway and Hebert’s Crackins and Boudin on Grand Route going toward Cecilia. There are many good antique stores in the town of Breaux Bridge. The Henderson levee is close by for fishing, swamp tours, music and drinking. There’s a bike trail on the levee than runs from the Henderson boat launch on Bayou Portage all the way to the Lake Fausse Pointe park, home of some of the largest mosquitoes on earth. Biking is good on the back roads, not good on main highways thanks to fast drivers who don't see sharing the highway as their duty. Biking is good on dirt road from Butte La Rose, north along Atchafalaya River. I enjoy visiting the LA 31 Bayou Teche Brewery in Arnaudville. They have a taproom where you can try the fresh beers that are often only done in small batches. There seems to be a festival going on in the area every week from small gatherings in the Henderson town park to the Festival International in Lafayette. (URL HIDDEN) Other Things to NoteOne mile off the I-10 Henderson /Cecilia exit, the house is closer to H enderson than the actual town of Breaux Bridge, which is about 7 miles away. Easy access to all of Acadiana, 20 min drive into Lafayette.

Guest AccessThe camp allows for full access throughout the home, except for my locked supply room, which due to my remote location is a necessity to stay stocked. Also, full access to the beautiful outdoor space, bricked patio, firepit, grill and stacked firewood. Although, there is one other rental unit in close proximity, it is very private and quiet. Interaction with GuestsI am only a phone call away, about twenty minutes, although my current long term tenant is a whiz at anything, and is always happy to help out, as well as another neighbor who I set up also as a vacation rental, is right close by in the community. The NeighborhoodThe Butte La Rose Community even has it's own (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page, so we share much among ourselves to stay in touch with what is happening, and we always watch out for each other. Mainly made up of retirees and out door loving nature lovers, we are very proud of our niche in the Basin. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation in my area, only car, boat or plane!! Or one could call a taxi, at some expense. Other Things to NoteIt is a very quiet community, peaceful and secure. Parties are certainly welcomed on weekends, but otherwise we always respect our neighbors privacy
