Bonne Terre Main House
When you turn onto Lawless Tauzin Road, your first sight will be tranquil oak trees draped with Spanish moss. The Bonne Terre main house sits back off of the road nestled in a grove of trees. The house itself is well adorned with everything a vacationer might need. If there’s anything you’ve forgotten or are missing, Jennifer is a quick phone call or text away, happy to help.
The house is a spacious two bedroom, two bath with a dining room and a kitchen pleasing to any home chef. The fridge was stocked with a breakfast items, half n half for our coffee and assorted soft drinks. The beds are comfy and towels are plush. The hardwood floors reminded me of my grandfather’s house, softly creaking as you walk….bringing back loving memories of years gone by. At the front of the house is a sun room with screened windows and a view of animals on the property: horses, goats, chickens and a cow. It’s such a peaceful place to sip your morning coffee (Jennifer brought us fresh coffee beans from a local shop) or afternoon glass of wine. The open back porch has a lovely morning breeze and there is a hammock, tire swing and traditional swing hanging from trees in the back yard.
