Beautiful house on the lake with easy access to New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

We were at the Lakefront home for 10 days in May. The house is spacious, well decorated and very confortable. Nothing is missing. New Orleans is 30 minutes away. The sunset is awesome on the deck. We had a great time, enjoyed both the house and the city. The owner is easily available for assistance. We recommend without any hesitation, this wonderful place.

Amazing views with great crabbing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this property last spring break! My 92 year old grandmother loved that there was a service elevator to assist her in getting up and down, instead of using the stairs. There home is very spacious and there were plenty of places to get away from everyone and have some peace. We spent a lot of time on the marsh out front catching crab. The deck has really amazing sunsets & views. Just a really great clean relaxing home!

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.
