The Victorian on the Avenue bed and breakfast is an 1890s Victorian home which Kent and I have completely restored. Nestled in historic Donaldsonville, we are in the heart of the plantation homes of Ascension, Iberville, and St. James parishes. We are conveniently located between Baton Rouge and legendary New Orleans, in a city full of rich and diverse heritage. You will find much to love and perhaps your new home-away-from-home!

Our B&B features five private rooms and baths, high speed wireless internet, and TV/DVD in rooms. Some rooms have an extra sitting room for your comfort. Antiques have been used to bring life and an elegant atmosphere to the house. One room is handicap accessible. Guest rooms are decorated in vibrant and rich colors, with luxury embellishments.

Heading to Baton Rouge for the day? It's a fun and amazing city that includes a diverse and wide range of activities. Enjoy fine dining, zoos, theme parks, and museums one day. The next day you’ll wake up to a continental breakfast offering yogart, fresh fruits, sausage/egg croissants, instant cereals, Toaster Strudel, and a lot more. After breakfast, head out for a fun day of touring with sites that range from The Houmas House Plantation; to The House of Blues in New Orleans; to the wonderful days of Mardi Gras. No Problem Raceway is 10 minutes from the B&B; Tanger Mall and Cabello's in Gonzales is 15 minutes; and a walk down the avenue takes you to our famous local artist Alvin Batiste's art gallery and Cabahnosse's Antique Shop.

At night walk to the next block for dinner featuring local flavor at The Grapevine Cafe and Gallery; The Capital Bar and Grill; Cypress Cafe or Cafe D'ville. Around the block, other restaurants include Cafe LaFourche, First and Last Chance and fast food dining: Wendy's, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Hot Wok and Popeye's Fried Chicken. Whatever's on the agenda, you can find it in historic Donaldsonville. Stay and Make Memories that will last a lifetime..... Call and speak with me about your accommodations... Donna Schexnaydre, Owner and Manager.

Great place! Rented this B & B for my daughter and her bridesmaids the night before her wedding. It worked perfectly. Lots of private bathrooms for the girls to get ready; plus room for five ladies to work on everyone's hair and makeup. It was perfect! The host went above and beyond what was expected. She was very nice and extremely accomodating. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We give Victorian on the Avenue a 5-stars review for the wonderful welcome, the comfort and ambiance of the Victorian Suite and the cornucopia of breakfast variety of goodies our host had for us. She was also gracious in recommendations for sights and highlights of the community and its many amenities. We will indeed visit again! My bride of 40 years has a co-worker who is also interested in our review.

This was a surprise from my husband for Valentine's Day. It was perfect. It was a quaint home. We stayed in the large (and only) suite downstairs and were very well taken care of. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet night away!

My goodness, where do I begin, I have never been treated with such hospitality, such thoughtfulness by a business until my visit the Victorian. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there last Sept. There were so many little kindnesses done that I could write three or more pages. The room was set up perfectly, the owner even threw in a little wedding cake that was simply superb. She also gave us good advice about the local area, and gave us the most memorable stay imaginable. Apart from it being our honeymoon, it truly was fabulous. I have never been treated so well... A return trip will be had to be sure. Thankyou, and do forgive for the amount of time it took us to write a review!

What a great place to stay! So clean, so well decorated. Better than a 5 star! Nothing was left out, extremely customer service oriented. We'll be staying here again and again. This place is a great "find". Luxurious furnishings and accommodations.....I feel so pampered.

The Victorian on the Avenue was a wonderful place to spend our first night as husband and wife. Everything was just perfect. The Schexnaydres' made sure everything was just right. Nothing was missing. We had a wonderful time and are so thankful to the Schexnaydres' for making our stay so special.
