Green Gables Bed & Breakfast and
Camellia Cottage, located in lovely Natchitoches, Louisiana,
offer warm hospitality and Southern charm.
Tired of being greeted at the door of a B&B
with a key in an envelope? Non-resident B&B's are a sign
of the times in this fast-paced, high tech world. However
Green Gables, one of the first B&B's in Natchitoches, has
owners that still offer personal service, old world charm and
modern conveniences. They will greet you at the door with a
warm Southern welcome, recommend restaurants, local
attractions, and daily events, and pamper you as much or as
little as you want. So relax, unwind and step back in time.
A Queen Anne center hall one-story
Victorian cottage built in the 1890's as a wedding gift by
Estelle Ducournau Plauché for her niece, Green Gables
remained in the hands of two families for her first 100 years.
After being restored back to her original grandeur including
ornate fireplaces, twelve foot ceilings, stained glass
windows, and a wrap-around front gallery, she opened her doors
to B&B guests. 18th and 19th century French and American
antiques decorate her rooms. And original art by B&B host,
painter, and sculpture adorns her walls. Dr. Kollar divides
his time between Natchitoches and Taos, New Mexico. Inn guests
are delighted to find out that many of his works are for sale.
