If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, this cozy cottage is your perfect vacation getaway! The cottage is nestled between the Diversion Canal and the scenic Petite Amite River. (The Diversion Canal is a large waterway from the Amite River to the Blind River.) This golf cart community (golf cart included with rental) offers peaceful tranquility from the noise of everyday life! The island has a community pool and Bar-B-Que Pavilion for your enjoyment. Take a boat ride around the island to see beautiful swamps with large cypress trees dressed in drooping moss. On a good day you might see turtles, alligators, nutria and snowy egrets. Stop in at the Blind River Bar for their famous “Worm Bucket”! Or you can enjoy hours of fishing and waterskiing on our lakes and rivers. If you don’t have a boat, you can take a golf cart ride to Moonies Bar and enjoy live music and spicy boiled crawfish. Delicious Mexican and Seafood restaurants are ten minutes away from the cottage. Enjoy margaritas from Sarita’s Mexican Restaurant, all minutes from the cottage (New location of Sarita's Mexican Restaurant is 18780 Highway 22, Maurepas, LA.)

It is equipped with Cable TV, Karaoke Machine, Washer & Dryer, stove, microwave and refrigerator.

Thunder Bayou Fuel Store is accessible by golfcart and has minimal groceries, pizza, wine and party barges for rent! Lagnappi Steak & Seafood restaurant will be opening soon and is also accessible by golfcart .

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for New Years 2016 and found it to be perfect in every way. The home appeared just as pictured -picture perfect! Everything worked well and it was sufficently stocked with plenty of dishes, bedding, and towels etc. The management company was very kind and thoughtful. We communicated by both email and text messaging during business and after hours. They always responded promptly. Honestly, I can't say enough wonderful things about this property. After checkout our deposit was fully returned within 2-days. We fully intend to book this romantic and picture perfect home again.

Cute place. Adorable decorations but pool was green and no grills as advertised.

  • 3 of 5

Really cute place. The golf cart community was fun but golf cart was not in the best shape. There was no cover for the rain and tires had to be consistently filled. I have stayed in golf cart communities before and having one that is operating at optimal level is key. The roads were not great which just increased your risk of having issues with the golf cart. I am not sure if the grills were taken out but there were none by the pool. It also appeared the pool pump was broken and filled with green rain water. So if you planned on swimming don't bother bringing a swimsuit. If this is their off season for the pool and grills then we should have been informed. The beds were nice and comfortable. The place was nice but does need some touching up to be a vacation rental. The screened in porch was great to have but one screen had a hole and bugs could get in. The place was clean but there were dust bunnies under the couch and beds. It was a cute off the beaten path cottage. Having the fishing equipment was nice and Brian's supermarket so close was great.

Enjoyable stay. Although the golf cart seemed an inconvenience at first, we all readily adapted and the children were enthralled with the ride! The cottage was well equipped and cozy comfortable.

Chic, cozy retreat!!!

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriends and I chose the "cottage" for a "mom's weekend off" and it was the perfect choice! We wanted a place that was kind of close to home but still away from it all. The cottage was decorated so chic and the views were spectacular!!! We LOVED the golf cart aspect of the weekend. That added a lot of fun to the trip! We met Linda from the store and she was so sweet. I was kind of eerie about the run down camp next door (when I read the reviews), HOWEVER we were happy to be next to it because it's vacant and provided us more privacy!!! We definitely plan to return and would recommend this place to others! Thankyou to the owners for sharing their peaceful retreat with us!!!
