Escape the hustle of the city and immerse your team in the tranquil beauty of Cajun Country at Maison D’Memoire, your ideal destination for corporate and group retreats in Louisiana. Nestled on 30 acres just 15 minutes from Lafayette, our event center and cottages offer a harmonious blend of productivity and relaxation, ensuring an unforgettable experience for your entire team.
Get Inspired in Our Charming Event Center
Our spacious Louisiana event venue, available at an affordable full-day rental rate, provides an inviting and airy setting for your next corporate gathering or group retreat. Accommodating up to 50 guests, our unique space features soaring two-story ceilings, a wall of windows that flood the space with natural light, and a cozy fireplace that adds a touch of warmth and ambiance. Tables and chairs are included in the rental, and you are encouraged to personalize the space to reflect your event’s theme and style.
Delight Their Palates with Authentic Cajun Cuisine
Enhance your retreat with delicious Cajun cuisine prepared by our exclusive catering partner, Fezzo’s Restaurant & Catering. Voted Times of Acadiana’s “Best Cajun Restaurant” for many years in a row now, they offer a range of customized catering options for any budget that will tantalize your team’s taste buds and add an authentic local flair to your event. We highly recommend them, although you are allowed to bring your food to reheat. However, we require the use of our exclusive caterer if you plan on serving alcohol, as well as a security officer on duty, and an additional fee applies.
Head Outdoors for Renewal and Connection
Our spacious property, complete with a tranquil private lake and gardens, provides ample space for informal breakout sessions and team-building activities. Enjoy catch-and-release fishing, host a lakeside yoga session, or embark on off-site adventures such as a round of golf, a scenic hike, or an exhilarating airboat tour. Our natural surroundings offer a refreshing change of pace from your typical meeting space.
Additional Tips for Enhancing Your Retreat Experience:
- Consider creating a specific theme for your retreat. For example, a ‘Cajun Culture’ theme could include local cuisine, music, and team-building activities that celebrate the rich heritage of our area.
- Encourage your participants to disconnect from their digital devices for certain periods to fully immerse themselves in the retreat experience and the natural beauty of the surroundings.
- Encourage capturing the moments by hiring a professional photographer (we can provide recommendations) or setting up a DIY photo booth with props. This not only makes for a fun activity but also provides keepsakes.
- Plan for a group reflection session at the end of the retreat to discuss what they learned, their favorite experiences, and future action points. This can help in making your retreat more meaningful and impactful.
Embracing these tips will help you make the most of our facilities and services at Maison D’Memoire, so you’ll not just organize another corporate or group retreat; you’ll craft an experience that will be cherished and remembered.
