Beautiful and charming!!

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I came to Baton Rouge to visit his brother, sister in law, and two niece's. While we were there we decided to take four nights to get away for our mini honeymoon. This place is beautiful! So cozy and charming. The Thunder Bay had everything we needed and we're so helpful, plus not to far from a supermarket and my favorite place, Spanky Daiquiri! Thank you Robin!

WONDERFUL out of the way place!

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I were looking for a place to "get away" from the noise of life for a few days and this place was perfect! It was very quiet except for boats passing on the canal. The house was well equipped for our needs and was very clean. The only downside I could see to staying here is that if there were bad weather, you would be "up a creek" so to speak if you were getting back and forth from the parking lot to the house. The only way to get to the house is by golf cart. If you happen to arrive in a downpour, you would have to wait. If you happened to wanted to leave to go into town and it was raining, you would have to ride the golf cart in the rain to get to your car. It's a fairly good walk from the house to the parking lot and I am athletic and like to walk. It's a short drive into Gonzales to the outlet mall. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the cottage. I'm glad you reinforced the golf cart community situation. I think the cottage being secluded from the busyness of traffic is one of its great assets. However, I know traveling on a golf cart it’s not for everyone; just the adventurous!

  • 5 out of 5
this was a great get away everything was clean and very neat. The view was very nice and we rented a boat at the nearby store it was great as well. The house had everything that you would need to have a great escape. our trip was just to short we are definetely going back in the very near future. My wife even had good luck with fishing from the dock and even has TRUE stories about the big one that got away.

Relaxing and charming

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage was a relaxing getaway for my husband and I. It was clean, well maintained, and equipped with all you need not to mention beautifully decorated. There is nothing like waking up to the sound of the river and getting some much needed rest. We enjoyed the peace and quiet along with trying all the local restaurants. The boudin balls and soft shell crab were our favorite at Kevin's.

Cozy, Warm & Inviting with a Chic Flair this cottage is Fit for a queen
  • 5 out of 5
The host was so accommodating and the cottage everything and more I could have hoped for, the shabby chic design gave it a modern day flair and the view overlooking the river from both the living area and screened in porch was peaceful and inviting, the golf cart was handy and quite fun to get around in to the community pool, mom & pop store, and restaurants on the river!! It was so peaceful and everyone around friendly! But, the best part was the cottage, It had everything and was such a dream for a weekend getaway - I would Definetly stay here again!!!

Glamping

  • 3 out of 5
The cottage had everything it mentioned in the ad. The appearance was what the photos reflected. We were traveling with our two-year-old and the golf cart ride was a bit rickety (although, he LOVED IT, and is still talking about it). We grilled in the pavilion, (alligator sausage!) and swam in the pool. My son had a blast watching the boats and jet skies on the enclosed porch. My son really loves nature and as NYC natives, when we get to be in it, it's a real treat.

The reason I rate it only three stars, is because when we walked in, there was an exorbitant amount of dead bugs everywhere (all surfaces, including kitchen stove and counters and floors) and just over-all it did not feel clean. It's by the water, so there is also a faint musty smell, especially in the master bedroom. As a mother of a young child I am very sensitive to smells and cleanliness. The cottage looked like it may have been cleaned maybe a month prior and I wouldn't call it "dirty," it just wasn't freshly cleaned. So because of this I felt like I could never really fully relax in the cottage.

We also noticed most of the overhead fluorescent light bulbs were out and you had to walk into the dark room to turn on a lamp.

The price of the cottage is on the higher end for the Baton Rouge area and competes with the highest rated hotels. When paying a premium price there are certain expectations (bottled water, fresh unused soaps and shampoos, modern bath and kitchen fixtures, working lighting). We did end up cleaning a bit ourselves, and asked for the cleaning deposit back. After sending a picture of the bugs, Robin agreed. She promised that in the future, she would assure freshening up right before a guest arrives.

It would have helped if Robin had a local person who acts as a "front desk." They could help us get acquainted with the golf cart/battery charging, walk us through the cottage and help with any questions, as she does not live nearby.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your perception about us, we regret that we did not meet your expectations. We will review your comments carefully and try to fix any errors that we might have had.

I can assure you the cottage was cleaned 7 days prior to your arrival. I personally cleaned the cottage and I take extreme care to make sure that it is perfectly cleaned for our guest. If you go back to our past reviews, the common review is that the cottage is well maintained.

We thank you for your feedback; this is what helps us to provide our renters with the best lodging possible.
