The SpaceBellevue Manor predominately offers short term rentals, BUT we offer discounted monthly or long term rentals or leasing (inquire within). The home is 141 years old furnished with original rare New Orleans antiques. I've personally owned the home since 2006, my extended family lived here since 1874. It is located on nearly 3.7 acres of land with several miniature horses and small barn on the property. The home has 12 foot ceilings, a little over 3,000 square ft. The house has 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a library/study, dining room and kitchen. The house sleeps 10 people comfortably, 12 if you choose to use our queen size air mattress per request. The DOWNSTAIRS has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, study/library, living room, dining room and kitchen. The UPSTAIRS has 3 bedrooms, a sitting area and one full bath/shower. Outside has a BBQ and 900 sq.-ft. covered patio area. Evangeline Downs Racetrack and Casino is less than 5 minutes away. The house works out great for folks who don't want to rent several hotel rooms and prefer the option to have family and friend under one roof, like to cook or BBQ with family or friends privately. I've hosted guests who have come to Opelousas for local weddings, bridal groups who need a space to get ready or honeymoon suite, overseas tourists, private parities or used venue rental (priced separately). The home has several miniature ponies on the property, which are a hit with children. The west side of the property that is fenced can support ample parking for large events (about 2 acres). The photos describe which bedrooms are upstairs and downstairs.

SPECIAL EVENTS: The home is ideal for photo shoots, special events, private parties, corporate events and wedding receptions are separate pricing and considered a VENUE RENTAL. WEDDINGS, RECEPTIONS, VOW RENEWALS, PRIVATE/CORPORATE PARTYS, WORK EVENTS ARE CONSIDERED A "SPECIAL EVENT" therefore the rate is the VENUE RENTAL and approved per inquiry ONLY since the price needs to be adjusted on my calendar prior to booking. The VENUE rental rate is $1,800 for the day of the event, which INCLUDES the overnight accommodations for 10-12 only. Any additional nights needed before of after the event are the standard rental rate of $250. For SPECIAL EVENTS/RECEPTIONS we welcome the option to bring in your own caterer and beverages. Decorating, table rentals, outdoor lighting, candles, etc. optional. If you need recommendations, please inquire.
EXCEPTIONS: If a bride has already chosen a wedding venue or reception venue elsewhere, BUT the bridal party needs a place for herself and her bridesmaids to get ready and take some photos, we treat this as a standard nightly rental rate, NOT a special event rate, but a TWO-night minimum still applies, but that includes the honeymoon suite and allows a great place to get the bridal party ready and take photos. Family and/or friend gatherings of 20 and under are the regular rate and not considered Special Event. Please inquire via email if you have questions. Keep in mind, Airbnb.com does no show your phone numbers or personal email address on booking inquiries, so unfortunately initial inquiries have to me discussed via email.

Some season rate apply after 6 guests, $50 per person per night is additional, but depending on the occasion we may wave the additional person rate.
