St Francisville, LA ~ These photos were taken in 2010, with one of my first cameras, so the quality is not that great.This hotel is known to be extremely haunted. We had a few spooky events occur while staying here, but nothing too terrifying. The food and service was fantastic, and the scenery is beautiful. I’d recommend their restaurant if you are in the area, but I think that one night stay was enough for me.
