If you don’t have a boat, you can take a golf cart ride to the Tiki Bar and enjoy live music and spicy boiled crawfish or enjoy delicious Mexican food and margaritas from Sarita’s Mexican Restaurant, all minutes from the cottage.

The cottage has large windows overlooking the water from its chic living room and loft area, a charming master bedroom with a queen size bed and an adorable guest bedroom with a double bed. The screened in porch has a large table and seating area for enjoying the beautiful view of the Diversion Canal.

  • 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.

TOTAL RELATATION AND FUN ON THE WATER

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I had such a great time in this beautiful cottage in a great setting! Everything was as stated in the ad, well maintained, and owner is great to work with. Activities galore for those who are so inclined to such while offering total relation for others. Bring a boat and/or jet ski OR rent a pontoon nearby. My daughter and I watched the boats from the comfort of the screened porch, while grandson and son-in-law threw themselves into the many water activities of the area. Perfect for small families or girls' getaway! Since we're from the area, sightseeing wasn't on our list; however, it's a great centralized location for those who wish to do so. LOVED the whole "golf cart community" concept.

We came to Baton Rouge for soccer regionals and were lucky to have found such a great place. The cottage was super clean and had everything we could have ever needed, and more. Wish we could have spent more time there. The owners of this place are by far, the best I have ever rented from. Thanks Robin for making our trip wonderful and for all the extra things you did to accommodate us. Great place and GREAT people!!

Owner's Response: Christie,

Thank you for your beautiful review of the cottage. When we decided to rent out the cottage in April, our goal was to make sure that our guest enjoyed their stay as much as we enjoyed our many vacations spent on the island. I’m so glad that we could make that happen for you and your family. Hope you will think about staying with us again in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a very unique experience staying in a golf cart community. The cottage was nice and we would go back.

PERFECT RELAXING WEEK!

  • 5 out of 5
I really enjoyed my week on Three River Island and the Diversion Canal! The Tiki bar, fishing, watching boats, and the screened in porch were our favorites.

The house was very clean and user friendly when we arrived. We had to watch out for the number of mosquitos, but after purchasing some bug spray we were okay. The owner was very helpful with some questions we had. This really is a perfect spot to get away. After traveling for a month straight in hotels, this was a perfect change.


Cottage is a little tough to find the first time driving in, So make sure to have an idea of what you are looking for before you load up the golf cart.

The thunder Bayou Convenience store has everything you need. Across the Canal there is a new grocery supermarket that just opened! We bought food and cooked our meals without having to drive a long way or anything.

The Map section on the VRBO website does not exactly show the location of the cottage for whatever reason. Be sure to look at the address they provide as a better indicator(11191 River Highlands Dr., St. Amant, LA).

Would recommend to anyone looking to have a fun weekend on water enjoying the Louisiana weather, food, and people!
