Overview

About the property

Great for a group of friends where its sister property is best for 2 couples

Harmony and Melody House are two connecting but secluded hideaways in the Tunica Hills at St. Francisville. Perched on 7 acres and separated by a 150' long bridge and 60' high wooded vistas, these cottages are 2200 and 2000 sq ft respectively. Enjoy one home or both, alone with family, friends, or host an office meeting, crawfish boil, yoga weekend, all enjoying the flora and fauna you have not experience in Louisiana. Wildlife is abundant with festivals, rodeos, garden tours, plantations, scenic parks and wildlife reserves, all at your fingertips. Call us to book your next relaxing weekend in the most unique area in the region. Summers are cooler under the canopy and winters are warmer with the many indoor and outdoor fireplaces.

About Vincent Chatelain

I moved to St. Francisville in 1996 and had the opportunity to renovate over 11 beautiful properties, some historic, some simple, all with history and the care of this charming and special countryside. I sold the B&B to a favorite customer who improved it more than i could have imagined.

Vincent Chatelain purchased this house in 1999

Why Vincent Chatelain chose Louisiana

This area is home of Ouida Plantation, originally purchased by in 1997, and vacant for 75 years prior. After a total renovation, Ouida and its' cemetary sits quitely down the road. Harmony House was a caretakers' cottage style built for Ouida in 1999, then turned into a deep woods rental. It was built among much fanfare as the first 'new' property ever admitted on Audubon Pilgrimage in 1999 for one day, but.... over 3000 people came to tour in 3 days, making it the most successful pilgrimage the historical society has ever put on, with even Governor Murphy Foster and our first lady visiting his great grandmothers' home place and the house that Senator Foster married her in 1895. History runs deep here.

What makes this house unique

This home is a modern gem surrounded by seven acres of trees, decks, bridges and ravines. It is truly a unique property that can adapt to the specific type of rental you are looking for. As it is, you have a relaxing weekend getaway like no other. With additional seating and lighting, this property is a beautiful backdrop for a party.

Notes:
The Bridge Bed & Breakfast is located at 10 miles off of Hwy 61 in St. Francisville, Louisiana. Its location captures the essence of serenity in the nature of the Felicianas. Both houses at The Bridge are available to rent. Although they are both comfortably equipped with double fireplaces, screened porches, tranquil decks and full kitchens, one may be better suited for your plans. Harmony House has three bedrooms and two and a half baths. It comfortably sleeps eight people and has a gazebo for entertaining groups. The three acres it sits on is perfect for hosting an outdoor event or playing a game of football with your friends and family. Melody House is ideal for one or two couples to enjoy the peaceful landscape while catching up over a glass of wine. The outdoor living area spaces at Melody House allow guests to enjoy several venues on this naturally defined property. It has 1 King Master Suite, 1 Queen Suite, and fold out bed sofa

Great overall experience, AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, my group of travelers had a wonderful stay at The Bridge. Our group of 10 rented both houses for a great time of fellowship in a quiet serene setting. We toured St. Francisville Friday and Saturday and then made our way to Angola for the rodeo, museum and tour. I left a few things and before I could get home, Keith texted about the items; very willing to take care of them until I could return.

Should we decide to do the Angola Rodeo again, this is the PERFECT place. Thanks!

Great stay at Harmony House

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The house and grounds were beautiful. The grandkids loved the sleeping nooks and we relaxed, explored and enjoyed visiting with each other. Clark State Park and the Pond store were just a short drive away. The screened in porch and outdoor shower and covered gazebo all were utilized. My husband and grandson actually slept on the porch both nights. We are already planning to return and stay longer!

Thanks so much for providing a great house.

(If the kitchen had a measuring cup we would have given it a 5 star rating!)
