3V Tourist Court



For our lodging during our 3-day excursion, Mr. Husband Sir and I stayed at the 3V Tourist Courts located in St. Francisville, La.  The Tourist Court was originally built in 1938 and consists of several adorable cabins attached to each other with carports.



Also on the premises is a little restaurant called The Magnolia, hence the unfortunate changed sign seen above.  The current owners have also landscaped the parking area and placed outside seating for the restaurant so the fun little carports are not able to be used anymore.


The outside of the cabins are quite adorable!





Here we are in front of our little cabin.



The inside of our cabin.  I was truly appalled to see the hard wood floors had been tiled over.  Luckily there were still several architectural features still in tact, such as the wood planked walls and ceilings.



The bathroom had a fantastic door with a glass knob, along with a cutie vintage sink and medicine cabinet, possibly both original.



My favorite room was the kitchen area! I even loved the ample rustic galvanized metal trashcan.



Check out this ultra adorable primitive double spigot sink!  The vintage crewel embroidery pieces on the wall are a nice touch too.



The light fixture in the kitchen had a pull cord, love it.  On the opposite wall of the sink was a small  fridge and a microwave.  I bet originally there was a mini gorgeous gas stove there.



You can see behind me that originally the doors were locked by way of skeleton keys, which also means you got to cover up the "peep hole"!


Mr. Husband happen to find this vintage sign for the cabins around the corner, it's the best we could get as far as signage.

During the week the restaurant closes early at 4 pm, which is great for the lodgers.  Meaning we can use the sitting area (or even better it's just unoccupied), have a parking space, and peace and quiet.  But Thursday-Sat they stay open til 10 pm with bands performing outside and those sitting areas being taken up by smokers and drunkards until who knows how late.  Luckily we happen to leave on a Thursday morning in time to miss this buffoonery.
