French Settlement’s Best B&B

Relax, renew, refresh at Green House Bed & Breakfast in French Settlement. We opened in 2011 and have been serving locals and tourists alike since then. The de-nailed and planed lumber was taken from dismantled cypress homes of South Louisiana, and was used for the entire construction of both buildings, including exterior siding and seals. Accents such as doors, windows, knobs and light switches from the cypress homes were also used in construction of the bed and breakfast.

For your reading pleasure one can travel back in time with National Geographic from 1920's to current. Deer, rabbits, squirrels, peacocks and chickens roam freely on the property. Nestled on 38 acres, the Green House Bed and Breakfast will give you the feel of seclusion and peace.

Our Community

The Village of French Settlement is located in the southwestern portion of Livingston Parish. In its earliest years, French Settlement residents depended heavily on the Amite river not only as their sole means of Transportation to other areas, but as a vital source of fish. Nearby swamplands yielded an abundance of quail, deer, turkey, rabbit, and squirrel. Originally known as Londell, the name of the community evolved into French Settlement after the name of a general store owned by Joseph Salassi. Steamers from New Orleans bound for Salassi's store and cotton warehouse began calling their destination point "French Settlement". Thus, the name became commonly used to describe the entire community. Early settlers traveled the Amite River to Lake Maurepas, then crossed the narrow pass into Lake Pontchartrain in order to get to New Orleans. Industry at that time centered primarily on farming, lumbering, and harvesting fish and seafood from the waterways. Today most residents commute to the larger cities for employment. Incorporated on June 13, 1965 French Settlement has a mayor, three aldermen and an elected police chief.
