History meets hospitality at this Louisiana home, where stately architecture and elegant furnishings evoke another era.

The Destination
While much of the Cajun Coast traces its cultural heritage back to French-speaking Acadians, the small town of Franklin—about 100 miles west of New Orleans and an hour from Lafayette—draws much of its character from the many English settlers who dropped anchor here in the early 1800s. With the English came sugarcane plantations and a period of prosperity, during which the town's now-iconic Greek Revival mansions were built. Today, much of Franklin is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, with many noteworthy structures standing proudly along oak-lined Main Street.

The Digs
One of these plantation homes is The Fairfax House, set back from Main Street on a large, lush property punctuated by trees draped in wisps of Spanish moss. Outside, stately white columns frame the house, and beautiful wrought-iron railings enclose the two-story porch complete with rocking chairs. Inside, the elegantly restored home features preserved hardwood floors, period furnishings, unique artwork from around the world, and mint-condition antiques. Rooms are equally plush, with luxury linens, private baths, flat-screen TVs, and complimentary Wi-Fi; suites offer opportunity for even more indulgence with Jacuzzi tubs and bedroom access to the front porch. Start the day with a classic Cajun breakfast; then, savor your surroundings with a stroll around the landscaped gardens and oak trees.
