My fiancé and I stayed here on a trip from Lubbock to New Orleans. We arrived in the summer twilight and the bistro light over the parking area welcomed us—we knew we were in for something special.
Because of our late arrival, Brian wasn’t able to welcome us but called us to give directions on how to get in the house, as well as sent us a detailed email.
Every detail in the house is carefully crafted. The decor is souther antique—dainty pieces, art, and antique quilting give the home the coziest of atmospheres. Despite all of the antiques, the house is incredible clean and free of dust!
We stayed in the Jana Roberta room that was plush and lovey with pillows, quilts, and art boarding the walls. The room had its own bathroom. The shower head was the ideal pressure and hot water came quickly. The bathroom was incredibly clean and came stocked with lots of towels and two cozy robes.
Brian serves breakfast between 9-10am. When we walked downstairs at 9:05am, Brian showed us to the dining room where hot tea, coffee, pastries, cheese, and fruit were waiting—his homemade pair butter was amazing! Now, everyone knows about Brian’s pies and I won’t deny how decadent they are, but the whole breakfast was amazing! That morning, we had scrambled eggs, bacon, two types of sausages, and sautéed mushrooms. But like I said, the pies are out of this world.
While we were eating the pies, Brian came into the dining room and talked to us. We had easy conversation about our travels and favorite restaurants.
We left around 11:30am and check out was as simple as leaving the key in the room. Before leaving, we walked around the property which is beautifully landscaped. Our only regret is not arriving early enough to have a glass of wine on the patio or on our room’s balcony!
2439 Fairfield is a little slice of heaven in Shreveport and makes for an relaxing stay to break up the drive between west Texas and south Louisiana.
