A bed and breakfast will soon be coming to Lockport.

Owners Rene' and Barbara Claudet announced the opening of 'Bouverans', a bed and breakfast which will provide customers with an elegant blend of authentic Louisiana history with modern conveniences, giving guests the opportunity to step away from their worries and enjoy good, ole-fashioned Bayou Life.

The home was built in 1860 and is located at 7602 La. Highway 1.

The home has been owned by descendants of its builder Pierre Joseph Claudet for more than 160 years.

The original Claudet was Rene's great-great grandfather. He came to Louisiana directly from France.

In addition to 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 home, which is listed on the National Historic Registry, as well.

The home showcases the elegance of Lafourche in the 1800s, but the modernity of life today. The home has antique furnishing, a manicured courtyard and a private chapel dedicated to St. Joseph.

The bed and breakfast was supposed to open in 2020, but COVID pushed that back to this year. The Claudet's started taking reservations online for March 15.

A formal grand opening will taken place when COVID concerns lessen.
