Spring time in south Louisiana...ah...it's spectacular!
We found a true treasure while visiting Hammond.
If you have never stayed at a bed and breakfast, check one out! Stay in a room at a home of someone who knows the area you are visiting.
With free wifi and complimentary parking -- add the concierge service -- and I have just created a reason to choose this bed and breakfast over an area hotel any day of the week!
This family lives at Michabelle, shops and works locally and has a wealth of knowledge about the Hammond area. They are very happy to share the best restaurant list for the area -- and boy is there a list!
We did not have the traditional continental breakfast where we head through the line, pick up the premade muffin to pop into the microwave to be placed on the styrofoam saucer to be eaten and washed down with a cup of coffee made in a commercial coffee pot...
None of that here!
We had a delicious homemade breakfast served on heirloom family china presented in this lovely dining area...
Oh yeah...the coffee was served from a beautiful side board with real cream poured from a silver creamer!
Located right off the home entrance and to the left was this lovely room--the library...
I truly did want to sit awhile and ponder over and discover the books on those shelves.
With free wifi, I noticed a guest working from this great room.
I also observed the owner and a bride to be planning her big day! This place apparently specializes in creating wonderfulness for that special time in a gal's life.
