The Big White House LCLA One of the oldest residences in Lake Charles Louisiana. The Big White House was built in 1850 and has been fully restored with all the modern luxuries. There are ample bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate any type of stay, whether a weekend, long term or a one night visit. The Big White House is located in the Garden District of Lake Charles blocks from the Lake Charles Little Theatre, old historic downtown, lots of nice restaurants and the casinos. A little bit about the house: The house was built in the late eighteen hundreds by Dr. William Kirkman. You will notice the name around town (Kirkman Street and Kirkman Hall at McNeese State University). Dr. Kirkman was my great (x4) grandfather and he built the house on the land that was homesteaded by his Father (James Kirkman). It is one of the oldest residences in Lake Charles Louisiana. In two thousand and sixteen the house went under major restoration to modernize the house. You can see the process on Instagram and Facebook; look for the profile @thebigwhitehouselcla. The house was lifted 8 feet and a new foundation was established, then the house was lowered and a gutted down to the double wood walls. The downstairs was opened up to provide a great space for gathering; 5 rooms combined to one. The restoration took 2.5 years to complete. We hope that you love the house as much as we do. She has a great vibe and she welcomes love, laughter and togetherness. Enjoy! The entire house. Almost 5000 square feet. Our co-host lives 2 blocks down the street and can assist with any of your needs. The Neighborhood: The Big White House is located in the garden district of Lake Charles. There are many beautiful and historic homes on the surrounding streets. The Big White House is located blocks from downtown where there are many great restaurants and local shops to enjoy. Some of our favorite restaurants are: The Villa (on Pujo Street), Luna (on Ryan Street), 121 Bistro (on Michael DeBakey Drive), 1910 (on the corner of Kirby Street and Ryan Street), Pujo Street Café (on the corner of Pujo Street and Ryan Street), The Charleston Bistro (located inside the Charleston Hotel) and Empire of the Seed (located inside the historic Calcasieu Marine Bank building on Ryan Street).
