Our Home is YOUR HOME Away from Home
When you set your suitcase down at Bonne Terre, it feels like home – without the distractions. Here is a place to breathe; to slow down; to nourish your roots.
Many artists, musicians, authors, nature lovers, and adventurous souls have come to pause here in their travels and gone away nourished in mind, body, and spirit. Come see why.
Bonne Terre — the good earth — is a 10 acre farm with 3 separate residences: The Main House, The Studio, and The Cottage
We’re organic gardeners, naturalists and music lovers. Our lovely hundred year-old Main House, Cedar Studio and passive-solar Cottage, are retreats for anyone looking for a place to rest, discover, create or just be.
The ultimate hostess…
“… Jen has thought of everything. From the placement of furniture to make sure that each area is comfortable and welcoming to the amazingly well stocked kitchen with everything you’ll ever need to enjoy your stay. Her attention to detail extends well beyond the house to the entire property, which is beautiful.
“Jen is the ultimate hostess who believes in

A house out of a quieter time…
The main house at Bonne Terre was built in New Iberia, Louisiana around 1914 and still carries in it the quiet of that earlier time. Pine and cypress throughout, with eleven foot ceilings, it made the slow, thirty-two mile journey from New Iberia to Poche Bridge in 1998 when it was just over 90 years old.
Lovingly tended for by its previous and current owners, it shows the care and detail of a house that has known love, and been loved.
… in the heart of Cajun & Creole country
Bonne Terre is in Poché Bridge, 10 minutes from Breaux Bridge and just outside Lafayette.
We’re a tranquil space in the center of south Louisiana’s vibrant cultures and breathtaking natural environment. Our incredible cuisine, amazing local music and one-of-a-kind attractions make our home a very special corner of the universe.
