Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay, we had two families with 5 kids total. The main floor has two masters with comfortable beds! The kids were so excited about the spiral staircase and having the entire loft to themselves. Plenty of beds, linens, pillows etc. The kitchen is well stocked. It has a view of the river so cooking was relaxing. The backyard is beautiful with great views and access to the river. We fished and used the canoe. The house was very clean and comfortable. We will stay again!

Cane River Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I am very overdue in writing this review but my family and I still talk about this place. We rented it to attend a family event in the area. Oddly enough, I had to come to town for a conference the month before so I rode by the house t check it out. It is completely unassuming from the front...so much so that I thought it was a bait and switch listing but when I saw the back yard, I knew that was it. I traveled with three other women who have....particular tastes and can be difficult to please. They were impressed! The furnishings are well appointed and the layout of the home is practical. However, for those who stay in the loft area, the wall doesn't go up to the ceiling so if someone decides to stay up late downstairs to watch TV, the sound really bounces off the walls. Otherwise, the kitchen has good amenities, so did the bathrooms. Good water pressure. The backyard is really magical though. We stayed here during Halloween weekend and it really served as a fantastically spooky backdrop when the fog would roll in in the morning on the river. There's a pirogue tied to the house which can be used. Good for two people.

The home is about 20 minutes from Natchitoches. There's a convenience store up the road but we made groceries before the trip. There are some lovely restaurants in Natchitoches also. This property is not far from Melrose Plantation which is worth checking out. We also just drove up and down the river to see all the lovely homes. The historical St. Augustine Church is also not very far from the house. We had a wonderful stay. Have recommended to several friends.

Great location and amazing scenery, just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Right there on the historic Cane River, we got to enjoy time in a wonderful home. Everything was clean and updated so it was very relaxing and fit just what we were looking for. Will be coming back for years to come!

Close Enoughto Natchitoches

  • 4 of 5

Rented this house to be close enough to the city to see the Christmas lights for New Years Eve, and it was.

Did not care for the too warm mattress in the master br,( think it's memory foam) so slept in a different bed in the loft.

The decorations of the home are nice, but way too many things on the kitchen counters resulted in not enough space to prepare meals.

Central heat/ac unit worked well.

The grounds are nicely kept, but the oak tree blowing in the wind kept activating the motion light outside the master br window, creating a strobe light effect through the window.

Very nice vacation home and location

  • 3 of 5

We have rented several vacation homes through VRBO with very good results, so when we decided to spend a few days before Christmas in Natchitoches, LA, to see the lights and enjoy the town during this festive time of year, we naturally searched online through VRBO.

This property includes a very nice vacation house, and the location was great for what we were looking for. The back yard is beautiful, and is right on the banks of the river. We enjoyed doing a little fishing with the grandsons off the dock (fishing poles were available in the house!). It is nice that there is a canoe available, although the weather was not conducive to our using it. The fire-pit is a great addition for cool evenings when the family can roast marshmallows or wieners. The house was very well appointed (better than most of the homes we have rented in the past) with everything you need, particularly in the kitchen and bathrooms. I would recommend bringing additional paper goods, depending on the length of your stay. The home was clean and very nicely decorated. It definitely looks bigger in the online photographs than it actually is, and I was happy that only 8 of us showed up, rather than the 12 that I originally paid for, as the family room is very small. But the house will definitely sleep 12 people comfortably. The loft area is decorated and is perfect for children, although I would not recommend that sleeping area for older adults that have trouble maneuvering steep spiral stairs.

A couple of things were already broken when we arrived (i.e., dining room chair leg, master footboard finial), one of the handles on the refrigerator is loose, and a pull knob on the pantry door needs replacing. I am not trying to be picky (just informative to the owner), as those things did not present a problem for us at all, and I do understand that with a constant flow of renters during the Christmas holidays it is hard to do inspections of the property in between visitors.

Communication with the owner by email was not always as prompt as I would have liked, but everything ended up working out in the end.

I would definitely recommend the property, particularly for family get-togethers. Natchitoches is a very nice place to visit and is particularly beautiful during the Christmas season.

Seven Sisters

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time all 7 of us sisters had a get- a- way with just the 7 of us and no one else .We range in age from 49 to 61. We had a great visit with a great place to visit in. We did a lot of cooking and had plenty of room to relax. If the weather is warm this house has plenty of privacy and lawn to enjoy.

(bring your mosquito spray) We had a little trouble finding the house as it sits off the road and the pic in the listing is of the part of the house facing the lake, so when you are driving in you actually see the back of the house. The house was very clean with plenty of towels and etc. We had a little problem the first night with the central air but contacted the owner and he immediately came and fixed it. There are plenty attractions to see and places to go if you choose the right time of the year and the weather cooperates. We had a carriage ride planned but the storm kept us from taking the ride. Nice place to fish and put your boat in the water. I would definitely recommend this rental to my family and friends.
