Private Ranch Cottage Near Houma La Sleeps 4 With Pool

Looking for a secluded, peaceful get-away? Well, pack your bags and stay at my private guest house that is situated on twenty five acres of serene land. It is a detached guest house that includes a private salt-water pool and a charcoal grill. The cottage can accommodate four people. Take in the rustic views from the porch swing, looking upon a fish-stocked pond and woods. Even though, you'll be experiencing country life, this cozy cottage is about 15 minutes outside of Houma, Louisiana. Houma is fun city that includes shopping and many restaurants. Looking for some activities? Houma offers putt-putt, a bowling alley, movie theatre, etc. Thibodaux, Louisiana is located about twenty minutes away and features the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center. Don't forget to visit near-by plantations and float down the bayou on a swamp tour. Go explore the Cajun culture! Venturing to New Orleans? Well, it's only a hour drive to "Let the Good Times Roll!" This is the perfect place to take in nature and lounge by the pool, basking in the sun. Contact me for more information!

About Tom Hassell

After living in a smaller city for several years, I wanted to move to the country where I could have a place for horses and plenty of room to entertain family and friends. Fortunately, we have a detached guest house on the property and hope others can enjoy!

Tom Hassell purchased this cottage in 2012

Thank you Mr. Tom for offering your guest house to HomeAway travelers. This guest cottage sits on a beautiful private horse ranch. It is clean as a whistle, and nicely appointed. Plenty of room/seating for visitors. The back deck beckons you to the private pool. Air conditioned along with Ceiling fans inside and outside. Full function kitchen, comfortable bed and sleep sofa. Grocery store is 5 minutes away. This was our home base for our 4 day visit and we found ourselves looking forward to returning to the comfort of our cottage each day! Rent this comfortable, adorable, peaceful cottage with confidence!

I can't say enough about our stay at the cabin! Mr. Tom and Mr. Steve were so accommodating and just down home friendly! We had everything we needed to relax and wind down from our high stress jobs. We took one day and drove for an hour to Grand Isle and enjoyed a great time, good food, good drink and new friends at Artie's! Picked up some blue crab to boil, on our way back, at the Seafood Shed in Golden Meadow. Best crab I ever ate in my life! Most of our stay we just cooked on the grill and relaxed in the pool. We did order a pizza from West Main St. Pizza....expensive, but worth every single penny! We hated to leave and can't wait to go back again. The place is perfect for couples who need a break from reality! Thanks Mr. Tom and Mr. Steve!

Perfection!! Cannot speak highly enough of this gem. My family was in heaven for a week!

  • 5 of 5

Woke every morning to a peaceful easy feeling. We'd check the chicken coop for eggs, feed the horses some apples and carrots, wonder over to the pond to cast a few lines, lounged by the pool. Close enough to surrounding attractions for day trips. Tom and Steve are beyond gracious hosts. Our family enjoyed being on this property immensely. Would HIGHLY recommend .

Blown away!!

More than we expected. Rented this cottage as home base for a month while exploring Louisiana history and culture. Tom was very welcoming and the relaxing and peaceful cottage was wonderful. Could not have enjoyed our choice of places to stay any more.
