We stayed at Freebird Cabin to atend Festival International. We were treated so nicely and were provided with a wonderful breakfast. We were in a great location for Festival and would highly recommend Cheryl's place to anyone.

You may ask yourself, what about this stay costs the higher Airbnb rate? I can tell you, that I have never had a bad experience with Airbnb, but I have stayed in places that cut corners on comfort, and free bird's cabin goes above and beyond on Comfort, which is my ultimate preference in a room stay. My husband & took a little Anniversary get away, & splurged a bit, only for that reason. This place is a true gem in Lafayette & I am very satisfied with my choice to book & we all know that sigh of relief when we first enter the space we booked and continue to feel good about it. Me and my husband have different preferences with a room stay and this room met both of our needs and wants! My husband loves the shower head, he said it made his stay! If you have an appreciation for hosts who are very considerate, there are subtle yet, influential details all throughout the cabin that make a real difference in a guests stay. All you really need to bring is clothes and a toothbrush, this cabin is well equipped with everything you may need, including bottled water, fruit, yogurt, oj, & coffee, and cream. Mugs and wine glasses, if you bring your own bottle of wine. There's an empty shelf in the bathroom for you place your things & there was Epsom salts available for my bath. The bed is very comfortable, the room & bathroom is very clean. You get to park in the carport, and there's a front porch right outside the cabin with a cozy bench swing, if you want to sit outside and enjoy the quiet neighborhood and her pet cats. We were very pleased with Cheryl's accommodations and we would stay here again! This stay would be a good gift, too, If you wanted to bless someone who was coming into town or needed a romantic getaway.

This is where YOU should stay in Lafayette! On one of the most desirable residential streets, Cheryl's "cabin" is fully outfitted for your next adventure! With it's own entrance separate from the main part of the house, you are in your own space but have all the amenities of home. The bathroom is huge and well appointed, with great shampoo. The bedroom is so large there is room for a table for breakfast as well as a small sofa. I stayed during Mardi Gras, and Cheryl had a king cake waiting for me!! Cheryl even had bag chairs that we could take to watch the Mardi Gras parades!! We could walk to the parades from here. This is a great location for doing most anything in Lafayette. The mini fridge was stocked with plenty of bottled water, since temps hit the 80's, and also had fresh Louisiana strawberries with yogurt and orange juice for breakfast. Oatmeal was available, too. Please note there was FRESH CREAM for coffee, not that powdered stuff!! And all the coffee you could drink with the Keurig! There was an assortment of snacks including some of the best trail mix I've had and healthy bars. The best is the glider on the front porch, where you are shaded by live oaks on either side of the yard! There are candles for the table there, to light your fun at night! Cheryl could give me tips on where to go in town, and is a very friendly hostess. I will be back to Freebird's cabin! It is a great place to stay!

Cheryl's cabin is comfortable, offers plenty of space and she provides all of the main necessities. It's in a nice neighborhood. Although the cabin is attached to the house, the private entrance with lockbox provides plenty of privacy. Thanks Cheryl, we enjoyed our stay.

We love Cheryl's cabin so much; this was our second stay and can't wait to go back. She is totally accessible and accommodating. Would highly recommend to anyone planning a stay on Lafayette. DINING TIP: Try the boudin and sandwiches at Johnson's Boucaniere, which is just a few blocks away.
