*NEWLY CONSTRUCTED BOAT DOCK WITH DECK*

Come relax and indulge yourself on the banks of the Tickfaw River, in your very own quiet southern hideaway. You can fish from the dock, swim, boat, and ski or simply watch the river flow by as you lounge on the deck. If you prefer, you can spend peaceful and romantic moments on the second floor balcony facing the river or enjoy some drinks in the screened covered patio on the first floor while you watch all the boats go by. This wonderful riverfront house, located in Springfield, LA on a secluded street, is very tastefully decorated and offers everything you need for a getaway to remember.

About the house....: The upstairs master bedroom features an incredible view of the river with access to the balcony with another bedroom down the hall containing bunk beds & a futon. The downstairs bedroom has a queen size bed and private bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, refrigerator, microwave, blender, coffeemaker (all you need are the food & drinks.) Full size washer and dryer is located in the utility room with all linens provided. There are satellite TVs with HBO Movie channels in the den, master bedroom, second floor and first floor bedrooms. There are central heat and air controls on each floor with ceiling fans in all the rooms and a log stove in the den.

About the area...: Thank you for visiting and considering Southern Hideaway as your place to enjoy some time off and have fun. It's a very peaceful, romantic place where you can leave all your worries behind and you enjoy the spectacular views of the Tickfaw River with your favorite person. The town of Springfield/Killian is one of the nicest and most scenic areas of the state. Tin Lizzies Restaurant & Bar and Boopalu Bar can be seen from the 100 foot riverfront boat dock & deck where you can hear the live music on weekends. The Prop Stop Bar and Lake Maurepas are located about 7 miles by boat. There is plenty to do out of the water such as visiting the antique shops in Ponchatula, the new Hammond Mall, golfing, and eating at several nearby restaurants such as Charlie's Seafood, Lagniappe's, and Mr. Joe's Sushi in Ponchatoula. Hiking and canoeing can be done at the Tickfaw State Park located close by. For more info on activities and places to eat please visit my personal webpage at www.southernhideaway.org

About Fernando Calle

I live in Denham Springs, LA with my daughters and grandchildren who live close by. Livingston Parish is a great place to visit and enjoy the outdoors.

Fernando Calle purchased this house in 2008

Why Fernando Calle chose Louisiana

Originally I purchased this house on the river so my parents would have a place to visit during the fall & winter after Hurricane Katrina destroyed their home in St. Bernard Parish. I got many requests from people who wanted to rent this house on the river.

What makes this house unique

The house is located on one of the most beautiful rivers around. It is wide and several bars and business are located close by. Lake Maurepas is only 7 miles away by boat. The trees around the house are beautiful and gives a very secluded feeling.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is amazing!! It feels like you are in your own little hideaway, we had activities planned for the weekend but did not want to leave the house, it was so nice. Fernando is great to work with and is willing to help in everyway. We will be back very soon!!! We are in love!

Peaceful and Scenic!

  • 5 of 5

Southern Hideaway is a perfect place on the Tickfaw River. Lots of great photo taking opportunities of the wildlife and boats. We stayed in the second floor bedroom with a beautiful view of the river. The bed was really comfy and the house itself had a complete homey spacious relaxing feel about it. In a great location with several good restaurants nearby. We will definitely return soon.

Amazing, Scenic & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by all of the positive reviews, but after spending a week here we certainly can see why this place has so many satisfied guests. My family and I were delighted by the beauty of the nature scenery and and how wide the river is with incredible views. The house was very comfortable, especially the screened in porch area where we enjoyed countless hours watching the boats go by. On Friday & Saturday, we could hear the band play at night from the nearby places on the river. This is the right place to rest and forget the hectic pace of life, at least, for a week. The owner very pleasant and was available by phone to answer questions about places to eat and places to visit. We highly recommend The Southern Hideaway as a place to stay. We will return again! Thank you
