Louisiana Travel | Thibodaux’s Historical Dansereau House BY: Kaye Constant

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 5-story Dansereau House is a landmark in downtown Thibodaux.Opened as a bed and breakfast in 2010, the house is a great combination of historical beauty and contemporary comfort.

Innkeepers Paul and Lori Worrell pride themselves in creating a homey atmosphere for their guests. A hot breakfast is prepared every morning.  “Eggs Benedict, omelets and French toast are just some of the things that we cook,” said Worrell.When guests leave their room to go sightseeing, they will come back to find their sheets turned down, and water and snacks left for them.”We want our guests to think, ‘Wow, they were thinking about me when I was gone.'”

The Drinkery, located on the first floor, is open on Thursday nights from 5-8 p.m.Here you can enjoy wine and specialty cocktails while listening to live music.When the weather’s nice, sit on the veranda.Guests are able to interact with locals who come out to The Drinkery to unwind, said Worrell.

Besides having visitors from around the country, the Dansereau House also welcomes locals.We get guests from Houma who just want to get away said Worrell.We also have guests that come from New Orleans who want to vacation in a small town.

Guests can enjoy the locally-owned boutiques, restaurants and night-life, as well as other historic residences, all within walking distance of the Dansereau House.

What Cajun Daughters love about the Dansereau House: As you walk up to the home, you are greeted with soft instrumental music that sets the mood for a relaxing visit.  Gracious hosts make your stay at the Dansereau House one to remember.
