About the property

Josephine's House is a fully functioning house.

Josephine's House is a 100 year old house remodeled in 2008 with all the modern conveniences and comforts of a new house, but with all the antique charm remaining. It is well insulated and has central air and heat. The floors are 100 year old antique pine and the walls and construction are original solid cypress.

You will have the whole house and yard to yourself. It is located on a quiet residential street just 3 blocks from the historic downtown area of Breaux Bridge. The house has one room with a Queen bed and one room with two twin beds. The kitchen and utility rooms are fully equipped with everything you could need.

The back yard is big, with a swing in the oak tree and the front porch looks onto the street and has 2 rocking chairs. You can walk to the grocery store half a block away and 3 blocks away in the downtown area are 4-5 restaurants, 5-6 antique shops, 4-5 gift shops, the St. Bernard Catholic church, kayaking on the bayou, and the tourism center. If you need medical services, Lourdes After Hour Care facility and the hospital are only a mile or so from the house.

We are only 2 hours from New Orleans if you want to go on a side trip.

I keep plenty of information and brochures of things to do in the area in the house.

Great Vacation Home, Home Away From Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nice, comfortable and the location is great. Easy access to all local Acadiana attractions. The owner is a very sweet lady. My entire experience with this property was excellent. Great value, great location and a quality home away from home. I strongly recommend this property to anyone.

Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

If your destination is Breaux Bridge, this house is for you. The owner, Andrea, is very responsive and easy to work with. The home is located in the heart of Breaux Bridge. It is near St. Bernard Catholic Church and historic Breaux Bridge. Restaurants, historic sites and shopping are within walking distance.

The home has 2 bedrooms with one bath. The house is loaded with everything you will need for your visit except for personal items. It was extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had no problems sleeping at night and the neighbors we met were pleasant and we enjoyed meeting them.

We look forward to staying there again when we return to Breaux Bridge.

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another couple and their toddler daughter. The house was well equipped with all the things we needed to be comfortable, including a high chair, pack n play crib and extra chairs for the front porch. Andrea and her husband were very friendly, gave us helpful information about local restaurants and activities, and willingly postponed mowing the grass when he heard the toddler was asleep. I did note that other reviews mentioned having milk, juice, fruit etc. Not sure if that is a standard practice but that would have been nice for our weekend too. There was tea and coffee but no creamer, salt or pepper. Minor things in the scheme of things. Overall it was a very nice stay and experience. I would recommend it!

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry. This has been a misunderstanding twice now. As of 1 year ago, I no longer provide snacks, fruit, milk, etc. I had sooo...much left over. It was really hard to predict what people would use and since I would never leave food items from one guest for another, I was throwing away A LOT of groceries. Some people never touched any and I would pitch everything that I had bought. And since there are 4 great places to eat breakfast within 5 minutes walk and a small grocery 2 houses down around the corner, I decided I couldn't waste any more.

Cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I celebrated my birthday in Breaux Bridge at Josephine's House. The house is truly a Cajun Cottage. Just perfect! All the added touches like milk, juice, fresh fruit, coffee, yogurt,cereal and bottled water was so thoughtful. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to do it again. LA is a GREAT state. We loved every minute of our stay. The house beats a hotel any day.

We are located just 2.5 blocks from Downtown Breaux Bridge, at 108 Patin St., where there are numerous restaurants, antique shops, coffee shops and gift shops. Live cajun bands perform at a lot of these places Wednesdays through Saturdays. The house is about 10 minutes from Lake Martin where you can see live alligators in their own habitat and every spring the egrets nest there by the thousands. Kayaking is available on Bayou Teche 3 blocks away. In fact you can walk all over the town and along the Bayou from the house. The Atchafalaya Basin is only 15 down the road where you can take tours of the famous basin and visit the seafood restaurants and dance places off of the levee.
