About Cerise LeBlanc

Coming from the New Orleans area, Arkansas is rustic, beautiful and just what we had been looking for as our retirement began to close in on us. Hurricane Katrina pushed us closer to the inevitable and happily here we are a little earlier than originally planned. We have made many wonderful friends and love our community with its quiet, safe and friendly neighborhoods.

Big city folks in a small town and lovin' it!

Cerise LeBlanc purchased this house in 2011

This was our first time leasing a home on the internet as well a the first time diamond digging, so we actually did not know what to expect. I must say that Gary & Cerise are the most hospitable couple that we have met in a long time. The home was very comfortable and clean. It has all the amenities that we were looking for, snow cones are awesome, firewood, diamond digging equipment, games, movies etc... The price was very reasonable. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend any one, if you looking for a place to stay, this is it. Thank you Cerise for recommending the sightseeing tour of Narrows Dam and the Lake Greeson. Thanks Gary for everythimg. Be blessed. Johnnie & Cora

Owner's Response: We try to have our houses like we would want them for ourselves. We put a few extras in them so you will have more time in the mine and less time at the grocery getting stuff like paper plates , paper towels and the like. We are looking forward to your next visit. Gary & Cerise

Great Experience !

  • 5 of 5

The house was a good size for my husband, myself and our 3 teens. It was clean and comfortable. The kids enjoyed watching movies and playing the outside games. Gary & Cerise are very nice people. Thank you for making our stay pleasant. We all agreed we have to return again and have more snowballs ! Maybe next time we'll find a diamond.

Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

I was unable to keep my reservation due to my Husbands health but Gary and Cerise were very understanding of my situation and refunded my deposit to me. We do plan on taking this trip at a later date and will definitely be staying in one of their adorable cottages.

Best Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently took a 3 night trip to Murfreesboro to visit the Crater of Diamonds and do a little sightseeing and relaxing. We don't care much for hotels and my wife found this place online. It was fantastic! Perfect! The house was comfortable, cool, and relaxing. The beds were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed many of the DVD's stocked by the TV (I highly recommend The Polar Bear King!). The kitchen was clean and there's a nice table to eat your family meals on. And Wi-Fi. The yard was great, though we didn't get to play any of the games due to the rain - horseshoes, badmitton, Hillbilly ball. There's also a grill and a firepit. And it was nice and quiet - unlike any hotel. You can pull your car right up to the front door and unload your suitcases too.

Gary and Cerise were perfect hosts. Gary has equipment you can use at the Crater of Diamonds as well as firewood if you want to use the pit. They even sell bags of sand you can take home and sift through later and find more fossils, emeralds, etc. My son is still sifting 2 weeks after we left. And the New Orleans Sno-balls are awesome. Being from New Orleans, we've been trying to find a stand that serves a sno-ball as good as the one's Cerise made. Haven't found one yet. We may come back just to eat the Sno-balls!

So if you're looking for a great place to stay - take my word for it. This house was superb.

Owner's Response: We are glad to learn that we're offering some good DVDs for everyone who stays with us to watch on t.v. and we're happy that ya'll found our accommodations clean and comfortable. We try to make our homes the way we would like to have if we were to decide to do a house rental instead of a hotel stay. We really appreciate all the wonderful things you said about us and we hope to see you again real soon. Gary & Cerise
