The word "refined" is usually followed by one of two words, "taste" or "sugar." Both options are covered with an Escape to The Fairfax House—a former sugarcane plantation turned B&B with sophisticated accommodations and Southern warmth—in historic Franklin, Louisiana.

Sweeten up your belle or gent with a two-night stay for two in the Azalea, Camellia, Magnolia, or Wisteria Room ($207 for Sundays through Thursdays; $222 for Fridays and Saturdays) or in the Fairfax or Murphy Suite ($250 for Sundays through Thursdays; $275 for Fridays and Saturdays). Fine touches include luxury linens, antique furnishings, private baths, flat-screen TVs, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

The Fairfax House makes your stay even more toothsome with fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, and a daily Cajun breakfast. An included dining credit at nearby Cypress Bayou Casino (your choice of $30 at Cafe Bayou, $50 at Loco Mexican Grill & Cantina, or $80 at Rikrak) is the proverbial icing on the cake.

Savor your lush surroundings with a stroll around the manicured gardens and towering oak trees on the sprawling grounds. Play a game of chess on the front porch, bike down the street for a day of pampering at Argus Spa, or stay in bed all day eating bonbons.

The next day, explore the history of pre-Civil War Franklin, where abundant sugarcane gave birth to a veritable Candy Land of Greek Revival plantation architecture. Then raise a little cane gaming at Cypress Bayou Casino or spotting gators with Cajun Jack's Swamp Tours.

If your sweet spot is Southern hospitality in a serene setting, treat yourself to The Fairfax House.

  • "I spent quite a bit of time enjoying the rocking chairs on the front porch and soaking up the sun on the back patio. Breakfasts were substantial and very good. I'm now a grits convert thanks to the cook at The Fairfax House."
