Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + 3 sofas, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Marsh House is a unique home located on Bayou Liberty in Slidell. Bayou Liberty joins Lake Pontchartrain and is one of the most scenic bayous in Louisiana providing an important bird sanctuary for many species, marshes, cypress tress, and moss-draped live oaks. Guests are welcome to bring their own boat(s) and use the 100-foot dock or rent boats in the area.

The 3,500 square foot home is spacious and perfect to entertain a large group in. There are two living rooms with wood-burning fireplaces ,a formal dining room accommodating 12, and a very large kitchen stocked with ample plates, glassware, pots and pans for large get-togethers. In addition, there is a screened porch off the living room with an outdoor stove and BBQ pit, an ideal setting for watching a sunset on the bayou. Above, there is even a moon deck. A very large yard makes for a makeshift family football game (football provided).

The Marsh House has a front and back porch which extends the length of the home. Off of these porches are 5 spacious bedrooms, 3 of which have kings, 2 have queens, and there is also a futon and baby's pack and play.

For fishing enthusiasts, the nearby Lake, as well as the bayou are teeming with speckled trout, redfish, crabs and other brackish water species. Fishing charters are available in the area. There are several fish markets in the area, if you would rather someone else do the fishing.

There are two public golf courses within a fifteen minute drive as well as a multi-plex Imax theater, swamp tours and other recreational attractions.

The Marsh House is close to visit New Orleans or the Gulf Coast - about 30 minutes away. It's a wonderful home for family reunions or just getting friends together. Laissez bon temps roulez!

great for large groups

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion in Slidell for my parents 70th wedding anniversary. The house is very well equipped for entertaining with large dining room table, large kitchen for cooking for large parties and a wonderful screened porch for warm evening meals and lounging. Nice to have the washer/dryer with laundry soap provided. Was put to good use with several small children. House worked well with the small children, and they were amazed to see alligators in the lagoon! Nice area for morning walks also.

We ABSOLUTELY Loved our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for an awesome, spacious house for a group of people, no matter the occasion, no need to look any further!!! We were on a couples trip, group of 10, and this house fit our every need!!! We spent most of our time in New Orleans for different events and hate we didn't get to spend more time just there at the property. The owner, Mrs Beth, is very nice and accommodating.... Everything from checking in to our departure was very smooth!! Anything you think you may have forgot I promise they are surely to have it there!!! Just so so much to enjoy at the Marsh House!!! We are now PERMANENTLY SOLD, including our hold group of 10!! This is surely our first choice of places to stay for any trips back to visit New Orleans. The drive was only about 35 minutes... We enjoyed our trip!!! Hope you love the Marsh House as much as we did!!!

Christmas Marsh House stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there on Christmas 2016. Beth is very pleasant to have a conversation with and very helpful to get us settled in. The House is spacious for everybody, enough rooms if you have to have some moments to yourself, and well equipped. The boys had some fun catching some bass in the channel not far from the dock. weather was beautiful at that time of the year. It's a driving distance to New Orleans if you are interested. Stores are also close by made it very convenient.

Great House & Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Our stay here was fantastic. We had 7 adults and 2 children and no one was stepping on top of each other. The house is quite large and the 2 decks, yard, and the dock created a great environment for everyone to have fun without being in each others' way. The location is right on the bayou, but within 30-45 minutes of the French Quarter (depending on traffic). The beds and pillows were wonderfully comfortable with options for soft or firm mattresses depending on your preference. The kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with almost any amenity you could think of (aside from the food) from crab baskets, to waffle makers to q-tips it was there; the spice cabinet was even stocked! If I had to critique anything I'd say; some of the cabinets in the kitchen could stand some repair as the drawers were a little off track, but really that is it! Most everything here is perfect and we greatly enjoyed our stay, we are already discussing when we could come back!

Owner's Response: I took care of those cabinets right after y'all left. Thanks for pointing that out to me. Hope y'all make it an annual trip!
