Our names are Lucretia and Bob. We currently are retired and live in South Carolina. Bob was an engineer and through employment assignments, we have been able to travel and live in many locations, both in USA and abroad. We spent several years in Dubai, UAE and Singapore. Lucretia is a native New Orleanian while Bob is originally from West Virginia. We were married at the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter and lived previously ten years in Mandeville.
Warren purchased this cottage in 2014
Why Warren chose Mandeville
Being born and raised in NOLA, Lucretia has always missed the Louisiana culture. Old Mandeville offers small town charm yet big city conveniences. We loved Old Mandeville when we lived here and love it even more now. The Mandeville Tree house is our return home cottage. We hope you will enjoy the Mandeville Tree house as much as we do.
The managers of the Mandeville Tree house are the previous owners of the property (Warren and Mindy) and are readily available to assist you.
