Folk Art Barn
Located on a tranquil 5-acre plantation near Lafayette, the Folk Art Barn is unique, elegant and spacious – the perfect place for individuals to retreat or groups of friends to stay and enjoy South Louisiana together. Sitting directly across from the barn is The Whirlybird – our underground dancehall and honky tonk featured in Southern Living Magazine June 2011 – making the Folk Art Barn ground zero for fun.

Folk Art Honky Tonk
The Folk Art Honky Tonk is a re-purposed creative dream: South Louisiana’s Jim & Christy brought a vintage Texaco train depot to Stonewood plantation and converted it into a dynamic setting for artistic, social and cultural activities.

“Truly why we love airbnb. Locals who show their lives and make you a part of it. One of those never to forget travel experiences. Definitely go and get a deep dive Louisiana experience!”
RE: The Whirlybird – “a bit like going into a folk art museum-cum-pinball machine in order to shower.”
“To say that Jim and Christy are wonderful people would be an understatement. Their property is beautiful and you can tell they really care about preserving the houses and land.”
