About Joy, Property Representative

We purchased this property while my son attended Northwestern State University. He wanted to live near campus and this duplex home was perfectly located within a short commute. The attached fully equipped extra unit allowed for the design of a guest suite apartment. He has graduated, and we now consider this guest suite our family’s vacation retreat, known to us as “The Cabin in the City”. We have worked very hard to make our home comfortable for people to enjoy and use.

Joy, Property Representative purchased this cabin in 2009

Natchitoches is home to Northwestern State University and many locally famed festivals. This historic college town has so much to offer visitors. Arts, Music, and Drama events foster creativity in this lively and active artist community.

Over 150,000 visitors flock to this historic town and are treated to a gigantic parade, star studded live entertainment throughout the day, dozens of food vendors, carnival rides, river cruises, carriage and trolley tours, and a spectacular fireworks show. After which, over 300,000 brightly colored Christmas lights and over 70 huge set pieces light the city along the scenic Cane River Lake.

Relaxing and homey

  • 3 of 5

Very quiet. Roomy and comfortable. Would have been nicer if there had been a pull out sofa instead of the air mattress.

Quaint

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to get away for our 45th wedding anniversary. He had a desire to see the sports museum so we planned this in August. It was very easy to find and not very far from historic district, restaurants, river, and church. We found the bed very confortable and everything was spotless. The neighborhood is very quiet and the cabin charming. We enjoyed our stay and the hospitality. We even received an anniversary card with a tin bucket filled with goodies. We felt special, Thank you!!

Very Convenient, Clean, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this house to be perfect for our stay while visiting NWSU. The location is ideal for anyone working at/visiting the university--it is just a short, easy walking distance from the school. The location is also ideal for walking to Front Street and dining out in that area. With a park on the other side of the intermittent creek/drainage sluice near the house, it feels almost like one is not in the city so close to everything. This place was perfect for us.....very clean, easy to find, excellent internet connection, and most importantly---quiet. Thank you!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay with everything you need! We so enjoyed our stay again this year at the 'Cabin-in-the-City. It feels like home with its full-size appliances. We love watching TV on the BIG screen. The cable / WIFI /internet connection is good. Big bathroom; the water pressure is great and the shower head feels spa-like. The kitchen coffee supplies were a nice touch. We hope to stay here again for the other upcoming events in this area, Classic Car Show, Christmas Lights, and Bike Rallies.

Weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently booked the Primrose Creole Cabin (at last minute) for a weekend getaway. Me, my daughter, and son-n-law had a great time walking to shops and restaurants with the convenience of being able to go to and from the cabin by foot. The cabin was very nice and well kept. It was quiet and even the airbed was comfortable and the shower was great!! I have rented through VRBO several times and a comfortable bed and good roomy shower with nice water pressure are two important aspects of my stay. We slept very well and ventured out again the next day. Thank you for the wonderful time and I look forward to staying again in the future.

needs finishing touches

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was conveniently located to historic downtown. Location was in a lower income neighborhood. Interior was comfortable but lacked some of the special touches we have found in other VRBO properties. It does not appear to be rented regularly and needed a touch up cleaning for items like the dead bug in the bathtub. Overall we had a relaxing weekend with good food, good shopping, and good rest.

Owner's Response: We note that you did enjoy your stay overall, but had a couple of comments. We appreciate the opportunity to address these comments. This property is rented out as needed to guests meeting the property’s rental requirements. We set rental standards to reduce wear and tear on this restored historic property. This property and many other historical accommodations are located in this vicinity. You noted that this property is conveniently located within walking distance to historic downtown. Regarding the bug in the tub, we appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention. We have remedied this matter. The property manager noted that the pest control service performed their service prior to your stay and after housekeeping had cleaned and prepared the unit for your date of arrival. It is apparent that the pest control services are working, but we will need to ensure that housekeeping inspections are done “after” any home maintenance services. We continue to add special touches to the interior of this historic cabin. We hope you will give us the opportunity to improve your next stay with us.

Come explore the history of Natchitoches Parish and discover the stories of the people of Cane River Country. Visit the Cane River National Heritage Area.

From early Native American Indian inhabitants to the French explorers and priests to the American arrival in the early-1800s, Natchitoches has lived through hundreds of years. They arrived into the United States in 1812 and to this day the Indian, French, Creole, African American and Anglo cultures mix their cultures, traditions, and talents, and yet they remain distinct.
