Where you’ll be

Lafayette, Louisiana, United States

Elmhurst Park Addition was developed in the early 1900s, with our house dating back to 1915. It is bordered by downtown, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and the Saint Street neighborhood, and inhabited by old home aficionados dedicated to carrying on decades old traditions, such as its eclectic children's Halloween parade. Within blocks are numerous locally-owned, "Best of Acadiana" eateries, including Johnson's Boucaniere, Saint Street Inn, Dwyer's Cafe, Poupart's Bistro, Keller's Bakery, and Taco Sisters.
