About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

If you enjoy nature and want to experience the uniqueness of life on the bayou, this is the perfect vacation home. Located on seven acres this rustic home on a cypress swamp. It is a prime area for birding and wild life. You can fish from your back porch. The style of the house is reminiscent of the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, complete with a rainwater-fed pond underneath the deck that adjoins the two separate wings of the lower level. It is located on seven acres with natural foliage with a wooden pathway to the dock that is on Bayou Liberty. The front of the cedar home is covered in vines and faces the pool, the back of the home faces the bayou. Lake Pontchartrain is a short boat ride away where speckled trout is the desired catch of the day. Bring your boat and use the boat house, or use the flat boat to troll down the canal which leads to the bayou.

The home is located on two levels. The lower level is handicap accessible via a ramp . The lower level is divided into two wings by the walkway over the pond and stairs to the upper level. There is a Corinthian wind chime hanging from the stairs near a large fountain in the pond.

The north wing has one queen sized bedroom with a private balcony, and a small second bedroom with a double bed. This wing also has a full bathroom. The south wing has one queen size bed, living room with a fireplace, large handicap accessible bathroom and fully furnished kitchen on the glass porch. This level has the quickest access to the pool. The pool is surrounded by hedges on one side and the home on the other. The water pool is shaded by an oak tree, and remains cool throughout the summer. Each level has a washer and dryer.

The spacious master bedroom on the upper level has a king size memory foam bed, walk in closet,and full sized bathroom. and private balcony overlooking the bayou.This bedroom also has a 42' HDTV with most of the movie channels.

The living room has three sofas (one a futon), a wood burning fireplace, a 61 inch HDTV, and a large balcony overlooking the bayou, perfect for sunsets, or coffee in the mornings. It is also a great place from which to birdwatch. Blue Herons, Egrets, Osprey, woodpeckers, eagles, and migratory ducks are just a few of the birds which have been sited here. On this level, all the windows face the bayou. Adjacent to the kitchen and living room is a formal dining room.

The home is close enough to visit New Orleans or just stay at home and enjoy the serenity of the bayou and pool. It is the perfect place for family reunions or getting together with a few friends..girls getaway...or a relaxing rendezvous for a fishing trip. For larger parties, please see the listing for the Marsh House which is just down the road, or just down the bayou depending on how you travel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'd just like to say that your place was better than advertised. The house was beautiful and felt like a home and not like one of those austere condos. The bayou is exquisite and the views are beyond compare. I stayed there with my family and my brother and his family and it was perfect with the two kitchens and living areas. I only wish that it had been warm enough to go swimming.....but we'll definitely be back....thanks again.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to take a vacation in the New Orleans area. We found this great home about 40 minutes north of New Orleans and what a gem. Beth met us upon arrival and showed us the home. She was amazing. Fresh flowers on the table and she spent about 30 minutes giving us great info on dinner spots and where to go to listen to some live music. She kept in contact with us a couple of times through the week via text to let us know where some terrific jazz bands were playing. She even stopped at one of the jazz bars we were at just to say hello. So many special things about the house and her hospitality that made our trip one of the best we've been on. The pool, the sounds of nature while sitting on the deck in the evening......this place is wonderful if you want to be close to New Orleans but also want some quiet time away from it all. Thanks Beth for all you did to make our vacation so spectacular.

Owner's Response: I was so glad that y'all had a good time. It's always fun to try and figure out what guests' interests are, so that I can make suggestions. Loved that you were also jazz enthusiasts. Hope to see you again next year!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our family vacation to this lovely home with our three kids, and they loved it! It was so hard to get them out of the house. Beth, the owner was amazing. As soon as I told get we were coming with the kids, she gave us recommendations on where to bring them, which was great! Nikki, was there to meet us upon arrival to show us everything. The pool was great for the kids and the back decks were perfect for us parents to get away from them and have some quiet time. The town is great as well! If we come back to the area we are definitely going to try and stay here again. Just close enough to new orleans to explore, but far enough to not here the chaos. Thanks again, for everything.

WE loved our little resort on the bayou. The kayaks and flat boat were fabulous. The peace and quiet of the country was relaxing!!! We were close enough to New Orleans and just far enough away!!! Thanks Beth for a great family get away!!!

Only trouble was the furnace has trouble turning off, but it isn't usually cold either!!!
