Excellent location. Exceptionally beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Christmas week in this beautiful lake house. The weather didn't cooperate--it rained all week. That didn't keep us from fishing and crabbing from the fabulous dock. The house as very stocked with dishes, pot, pans, etc. The view from the house onto the water was incredible. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants nearby that we enjoyed.

If you want to do some shopping in New Orleans, just hop on the bridge right by the lake house and you can be there in a short time. The pictures on the internet didn't do the house justice. It is truly beautiful and a lot larger than I thought it would be.

I would certainly recommend this home to my friends. The owner, Andree, was truly a pleasure to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Relax in total comfort!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a home away from home! My family(originally from New Orleans) gathered here to relax, visit the city, and enjoy each other surrounded by the warmth of the house and peace of the mixed landscape. The view of the lake and marsh is lovely.

Great family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Great place for the family to get together. The house and amenities were in very good condition. The fishing pier was very accommodating for our group. Very good customer service from the owners. Looking forward to returning in the future. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is this place far exceeded our expectations! It was furnished beautifully and the owners provided amenities that you rarely get when you rent a vacation property. The fishing pier was wonderful with its large lights for nighttime fishing...and even though the weather was not very cooperative the house was cozy and spacious when we were all indoors because of the rain! I would most certainly recommend this place and can't wait to find time to return !Loved it!

perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to enjoy family. This home is warm and comfortable. We all had a place to play, read. relax,cook, fish and explore. The location was ideal because it was a short drive to New Orleans and yet a quite get away fpr my family. Thank you for this gem in Slidell.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family wanted a place to get together to celebrate a milestone birthday. This lake house was every bit as wonderful as previous guests described. So nice it's hard to imagine the owners willing to share it with strangers, but we are so glad they do. Comfortable, clean, well stocked for every imaginable activity. In addition the fishing was great and the round dining table was perfect for the card games that ended the day for grandparents, grand children and everyone in the middle. We had a really great time and can't wait to do it again.

Only six miles from the New Orleans line (just across a bridge over Lake Pontchartrain), yet worlds away. Beautiful lakefront property with 300 foot pier on lake side and expansive marsh views with a great variety of wildlife on the other side. Home located just 2 miles from groceries, drugstores, restaurants, coffee shops,

seafood markets, etc. in the town of Slidell.
