About the property

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

We just spent the month of February at the cottage and had a fantastic time. It was quiet, private and peaceful. We like to spend time in New Orleans and it was an easy hour's drive away, but when we'd return to the cottage we felt like we were a hundred miles from any city. We also explored in the other direction, going down the bayou. (Don't miss the Chauvin sculpture garden; Tom can direct you there). Tom is a genial, wonderful host and he also delivered the best orange juice I ever had from one of his trees. We are already looking forward to returning next year!

Property Was beautiful and Tom showed us great hospitality. Lots to explore and several wonderful restaurants during our exploration of southern Louisiana. So glad we decided to spend the week in such nice accommodations!

Quick get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

Didn't know we could find a secluded get-a-way so close to home. Front porch swing looking toward a pond (caught 11 small to medium bass on plastics) and back porch looking over a private pool which is also where we BBQ'd. We ate 1 meal in Houma about 10 minutes away. The TV's are not hooked up if that's your thing, but there is internet service so bring a Roku/fire stick as I watched the LSU game and listened to music that way. Cabin has all the amenities you need and if not, I'm sure Steve would have no problem helping you out. You can pet/feed horses and chickens are there also. So for us Cajuns, why travel out of state when you have this get-a-way in your back yard. Just sit back and have a drink, there's plenty of property to explore and why not just disconnect for a little while? I think you'll come home refreshed!

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!

R&R Heaven

  • 5 of 5

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!
