New Bed and Breakfast set to Open in Lockport.
Lockport will soon be home to a new bed and breakfast that combines an elegant blend of authentic Louisiana history with modern conveniences, giving guests the opportunity to step away from everyday worries and simply experience the “Bayou life.”
Owners Rene’ and Barbara Claudet are pleased to announce the opening of their historic home, “Bouverans,” built in 1860 and located at 7602 Highway 1, as a bed and breakfast. Except for a brief five-year period, for more than 160 years, Bouverans has been owned by descendants of its builder, Pierre Joseph Claudet. Claudet was Rene’s great-great-grandfather, and he arrived in Louisiana directly from France.
In addition to being a bed and breakfast, Bouverans will also have space for small events, weddings, retreats and photo sessions. The Claudets plan to offer tours of the house, which is listed on the National Historic Registry. Use of venue space and tours are by reservation only.
Situated along Bayou Lafourche, the historic home invites guests to step back in time and enjoy its peaceful yet simple elegance. Highlights of the property and house include antique furnishings and design elements reflective of the 1800s; Bouverans Oak, which is number 40 on the Lafourche Parish Live Oak Tour; a beautifully manicured courtyard designed for spiritual peace and tranquility; and a private chapel dedicated to Saint Joseph.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the opening of this new bed and breakfast was postponed from 2020 to this year, but the Claudets expect to begin accepting reservations online starting March 15. A formal grand opening and blessing of the chapel will take place when COVID-19 concerns lessen and it’s safe to gather.
