Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Saint Amant - Southern Comfort

For Driving Directions use 11191 River Highlands Dr., St. Amant, LA

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.)

The cottage has large windows overlooking the water from its chic living room and loft area, a charming master bedroom with a queen size bed and an adorable guest bedroom with a double bed. The screened in porch has a large table and seating area for enjoying the beautiful view of the Diversion Canal. 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 .

Great Waterside Location

  • 5 of 5

This place was fabulous. It is tastefully decorated, and the view from the living room and porch is gorgeous. The sun rose and set over opposite ends of the canal and was truly stunning. The golf cart ride was actually quite an enjoyable way to get to and from the house. The beds are very comfortable, the A/C works great, there are plenty of dishes and pots and pans, a grocery store and restaurants are nearby (Sarita's is especially good) and the place was very clean. We will definitely be back.

Amazing, this was the best little get away spot we could have hoped for.

  • 5 of 5

Our oldest son lives in Texas and me, my wife and younger son live in Ohio; we were looking for a place to vacation where he and his fiance could meet us for a trip and this was absolutely PERFECT. It was clean, beautifully decorated and sits in a great location to relax (either to fish, go to the community pool or just look-out at the scenic views of the water).

One of the best things about the trip - NO WiFi. Everyone had to talk to each other instead of play on their phones, I loved it!!!!

We were within an hour drive to both Baton Rouge and New Orleans, which made great day trips.

The owners were fantastic and very helpful, we will ABSOLUTELY be back! :-)

Right on the river

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is amazing tons of space, central air, clean

Close to baton rouge, not to far from new Orleans

And the golf carts make things interesting. The only issue is that the cottage doesn't have any WiFi and if you have tmobile you'll have no service out there.

It was a great trip

The property is a very quaint home on the canal. Golf cart access only, but not to worry, there is a grocery store, pizza place, bar and Restraunt just a short golf cart drive away. We really enjoyed it and look forward to coming back next year !

Comfy hide away

  • 4 of 5

At first the commute felt very long, but after a day in the city coming back to the cottage was blissful.

The interior is beach cottage cute. The one negative is the musty smell, especially in the master bedroom closet ( I'm very allergic to mildew) . Airing the cottage out helped.

We found everything we needed to feel at home.

Robin thank you for allowing us to stay in your cute cottage.

Property was clean and as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Cute place on the river, once we grabbed the golf cart, the cottage was father down the path then we expected since we had never been there. Robin was easy to work with and responded to my inquires in a timely manner. Thanks!
