Welcome to Splendor Farms Bed & Breakfast,
an "off-the-beaten-path" escape in Bush, Louisiana
Situated on a working 75-acre farm one hour from the French Quarter of New Orleans,
Splendor Farms Bed & Breakfast offers
comfortable, family-friendly B&B accommodations in a relaxed
country farm setting. We have 3 guest bedrooms, a guest bunkhouse, a guest cabin and RV, Swimming Pool, horseback riding, a dachshund kennel, a petting farm, and nearby hiking, biking, and nature trails. Just 1/4 mile up the road is the scenic Bogue Chitto River, where you can go horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, tubing, or just have a picnic and enjoy all the nature surrounding you. A fun, relaxing place for adults, Splendor Farms is especially memorable for children, who can help us gather eggs in our hen house or enjoy a playful romp with long-haired miniature dachshunds at our kennel (we also have horses, cows, goats, chickens, and cats). We serve bountiful "farm-style" breakfasts that often feature organic eggs produced by our very own hens, or something fresh from our fruit and vegetable gardens (we also supply organic produce to area restaurants & health food stores).
PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR A VIDEO AND PHOTOS OF SPLENDOR FARMS B&B. Feel free to contact us if you have questions. We hope to see you on the farm soon! We know you'll enjoy your stay so much you'll want to come back again and again!

These two brothers were abandoned by their mom. Splendor Farms has added them to our latest addition, our Petting Farm!
Another new addition to the farm - Meat Producing Boer Goats! The buck placed first in the American Meat Goat Association competition recently in Huntsville, Alabama. His herd is MawMaw Chanel, up close, then little Cisco, sisters Jano and KayKay, and Vivien Leigh (sassy long ears!) They follow you around like dogs! Don't worry, Cisco will become a weather and the girls will be providing us with meat stock next fall! Welcome to Splendor Farms, Buck and his ladies!
Billy and Bob are brothers and love to eat animal crackers!
Well, Roberto and his sons have built the Taj Mahal of goat houses!
I'm surprised they didn't add a second floor!
What was supposed to be a little leanto
has become a $2500.00 project. Roberto sure takes pride in his work!!
Life on the Farm
Everyone takes their time
leaving Splendor Farms! We had over 40 Canadian geese stay
with us this winter, and these 3 were the last ones hanging
around. And did you notice the Great Grey Heron on the left
behind the pond? (Great!) The horse is Breeze,
taking a leisurely drink from one of our stock ponds.
Larry McKinney of Richardson, TX spent one morning learning how to shoe a horse! Mr. Keen was fun to watch and Lightning loved the extra attention!
On his way back from birdwatching, Larry stops to visit with Captain.
Snow, Beautiful Snow!!
