A unique flair that is offered to all guests and, as well as non-guests of our bed and breakfast, is a Crawfish Excursion. Experience firsthand how these amazing crustaceans come to appear on our tables. A guide will assist you in a unique boat ride allowing you to assist in catching your own crawfish. Later, you can end the evening with your own crawfish boil in true Cajun style. Boil them yourself or we can boil them for you.
If you prefer, rather than taking an excursion on the boat, you can catch crawfish the old-fashioned way, using hand nets. This can be done in the ponds right behind the B&B. We will supply the nets and bait and teach you. Again, you can boil your own crawfish in the boiling pots we provide or we will boil them for you. (More details below.)
Please note: Crawfishing in ponds behind the home is for registered guests only.
