PERFECT GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect place to enjoy family. This home is warm and comfortable. We all had a place to play, read. relax,cook, fish and explore. The location was ideal because it was a short drive to New Orleans and yet a quite get away fpr my family. Thank you for this gem in Slidell.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family wanted a place to get together to celebrate a milestone birthday. This lake house was every bit as wonderful as previous guests described. So nice it's hard to imagine the owners willing to share it with strangers, but we are so glad they do. Comfortable, clean, well stocked for every imaginable activity. In addition the fishing was great and the round dining table was perfect for the card games that ended the day for grandparents, grand children and everyone in the middle. We had a really great time and can't wait to do it again.

BEAUTIFUL LAKE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, clean, modern, and well-stocked house on Lake Pontchartrain - close to New Orleans. Very comfortable furnishings inside as well as outside on the upstairs and downstairs decks. On our last day, we had breakfast outside on the upstairs deck and it was delightful.

Kitchen has every cooking gadget and utensil imaginable, and a huge butcher block island - if you want to eat in - or you have nice choices to eat out in Slidell, and of course, in New Orleans. The drive down to New Orleans and back is very easy. We cooked our Thanksgiving dinner at the house and enjoyed it more than if we had gone out.

The dock is loaded with fishing gear, the bathrooms are oversized, and due to the house's location on the north side of Lake Ponchartrain, you can see the sun rise over the east side of the lake and set over the west side of the lock. Everything about this place is fabulous. We hated to leave.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you and your family enjoyed your Thanksgiving week at the lake. Your wonderful review is greatly appreciated and we hope you return to visit the lake house again. Thanks!

AN IDEAL RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
This property made for a truly unique, and relaxing vacation. The house is beautiful with a nice deck, pier and amazing sunsets over the lake. The rooms are nice, and one bedroom was perfect for our daughters. Lots of games, toys, TV, Wi-Fi all make for great amenities. It is an easy drive into New Orleans, and while we went a few times we also enjoyed relaxing at the lake house. The owners are accessible, insightful and very helpful - even going out of their way to mail back a necklace we left.

The fishing was excellent - after a short drive with the bait bucket over to "The Dock" restaurant (and bait shop in parking lot) we had 25+ live shrimp for about $9. We fished 3 hours, 9P-Midnight, and caught some nice Black Drum, although to small to keep - and (6) trout in the 12-20" range. The night fishing and dock are a great experience - tackle shed, night lights, cleaning station, fridge... a great place to fish.

Kenney's Seafood Market is the place for fresh crab, or lobster, and Winn Dixie is the best grocery. Family fun was easy. It's a short drive into New Orleans and we enjoyed the Botanical Gardens, Storyland and Carousel Park for young kids as well as the Audubon Aquarium. Beignets are everywhere. We only wish we could have stayed longer and highly recommend this property.

GREAT FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
Quiet, easy to find location. Everything was clean and very well maintained. Loved that there was a yard as well as the pier. The smaller pier across the street was great for catching crabs. We would recommend this lake house to just about anyone, family, group or just a couple. Hope to visit again sometime.

EXCELLENT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful house! It is fully appointed w/all the amenities you could think of--from the fishing gear/crab nets/hammocks to kitchen equipment/utensils/furniture/linens. You will not miss anything! We caught a lot of crabs in the bayou across the street & some fish, as well. The owners were always available to answer any questions we had (which were a few & she was always very nice & helpful!). We hope to visit this house again!

Beautiful lakefront property with 300 foot pier on lake side and expansive marsh views with a great variety of wildlife on the other side. Home located just 2 miles from groceries, drugstores, restaurants, coffee shops,

seafood markets, etc. in the town of Slidell.
