Oh so unique!
We had such a wonderful stay at the Bonne Terre Studio! It is comfortable, fun, clean, spacious, oh so unique! Jennifer is an amazing host with great local knowledge and an amazing spirit. We are already talking about when we can return and stay longer. Do yourself a favor and book an extra long stay here!
A Magical Little Farm
Wow! Just, Wow! If you’re looking for style, comfort and good old fashioned southern hospitality, you can’t go wrong with Jennifer’s Bonne Terre Studio! A beautiful, tasteful and positively serene studio on a magical little farm, hosted by a wonderful human, Bonne Terre Studio exceeds all expectations from the moment you turn down the driveway! Worth the price of admission for the record collection alone! Jennifer not only knows everything about her area of Louisiana, you can tell she genuinely loves sharing it with her guests! It’s already on my list of places to revisit as soon as time allows!
I’d highly recommend visiting
Jen’s place is very relaxing and scenically beautiful. I was amazed at how clean and organized her farm and studio was. All of the animals are so happy and I can understand why. I enjoyed sitting on the deck, playing the guitar with a cup of her signature roast coffee. I’d highly recommend visiting.
A Little Gem
The reviews on here are spot on; this space is everything and more you can ask for! Jen’s attentiveness and attention to detail is unmatched. All the amenities you’d ever need and more are available! She is a gracious and wonderful host, the place is serene, clean, and really just perfect. What a little gem! I will be back!
Outstanding Place to Stay
Bonne Terre is an outstanding place to stay. Having stayed there once before, I already had high expectations. It was even better the second time! Wished I could have stayed longer. Jennifer is a fabulous hostess. People, stay here!
This place is a charmer! Beautiful surroundings and quiet. Love all the records, musical instruments, books, and artwork. There is plenty of sitting room outside to catch fresh air, or view the night sky with a glass of wine. I highly recommend this location and was treated with such great hospitality! Fresh farm eggs, and herbal water upon arrival is just a few of the great things that were a pleasant welcome. I will be back!
