With a great location in the historic district of St. Francisville, LA, this 1800's Victorian Gothic has large porches, a brick courtyard, parlors, and dining rooms which are all available to guests. Ten guest rooms surround the courtyard and swimming pool.
The Inn is nestled amongst 130 year old live oaks draped with Spanish moss. Adjacent to the town park where many local festivals and events are held, the Inn is the perfect location. The Inn's location is within easy walk to restaurants, antique & gift shops, historic homes, buildings, churches and cemeteries.
Built in 1880 by a Bavarian merchant named Morris Wolf, the town home was directly across the street from his mercantile store, Wolf's General Store. Later the home was sold to one of Wolf's employees, Arron Schlesinger which accounts for the home's current name, Wolf-Schlesinger House.
