Excellent stay at cottage in Baton Rouge

  • 5 of 5

Visiting family for the first time in BR. Cottage was perfect for daughter and I , we felt immediately at home and comfortable here. Interior is cheerful bright clean and welcoming. Loved decor and art on the walls , kitchen had all we needed for cooking, we are vegan and so we do use a kitchen a lot when traveling. Great deep tub for a nice soak and appreciated the room darkening drapes in bedrooms letting us sleep in!

Quiet neighborhood felt very safe , easy access in and out as we traveled around the city and farther afield. The owner and I were in touch by text often during our stay, she is close by should you require anything, which we did not but it was nice that she reached out to check on us during our stay. We had a lovely time would definitely stay again.

Convenient location for LSU activities

  • 2 of 5

This place could be a lot better with a little more attention to details. We arrived and found one roll of toilet paper and no paper towels. The cleaning services being used is not doing their job. Kitchen accessories were not very clean. There was no dish washing detergent except for the dishwasher and no dish cloth or sponges for cleaning. The dishwasher needs to be replaced. A garbage disposal would help too. The backyard has very little grass and is basically unusable when it rains. There is no usable outdoor furniture except for a couple chairs and a bench in the front yard. The lights are another issue. A lot of them do not work. We never could get the dining room light on.

Owner's Response: We take pride in our cottage and in helping our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay in both the cottage and in Baton Rouge. As you can see from our other reviews, this review is not typical of our guests and all of our other guests have been pleased with the cottage and our responsiveness. Our front yard has two comfortable wicker chairs on the porch as well as a matching wicker loveseat in the sun, all of which can easily be moved to accommodate the guests' needs. Our backyard has 4 lounge chairs and an iron table and chairs. We are currently working on enhancing our landscaping to make the backyard more enjoyable. VRBO properties do not include paper and cleaning products. However, as a courtesy to our guests, we include a starter set of these items as well as coffee service, travel toiletries, and a welcome basket of Louisiana goodies. We can assist with grocery or other deliveries if guests would like to have certain things in place upon their arrival. We check on guests by text message during their stay, and, as we live a few blocks away, we are able to address issues quickly if guests make us aware of them. We have addressed this guest's other concerns, and hope that you will consider visiting Baton Rouge and staying in our cottage!

Very cute property

  • 4 of 5

We had a really good stay. The host was very flexible with a small party we had. I'm sure we'll stay there again.

Wonderful time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this wonderful cozy cottage. Perfect size for a get-away. We had everything we needed and more. It is well kept and well equipped for a weekend, a week, or longer. It is in a wonderful central location for LSU and Baton Rouge. We would definitely recommend this lovely cottage to anyone.

Perfect Cottage for LSU vs MU game

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our extended football weekend. It is central to great restaurants and short hop to the campus. We loved the cottage kitchen! For a small place it has everything and it functions perfectly even with a group of adults for lunch. We hosted friends before the game and they were all jealous we had such fun accommodations compared to their hotel rooms. Even our local friends talked about driving past the house for years and now they would recommend it to friends coming into town. You won't be disappointed with this perfect colorful cottage. Our only disappointment was the football game:( MIZ

PERFECT in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't actually do it justice! It's airy and spacious, charming in it's decor, and accommodating in every way. We rented the cottage and the back apartment for our son's graduation from LSU. We were able to provide all our family members with their own space and also have people over for a pre-graduation reception. Our little house was the hit of the party!

The owner, Willa, was such a gracious host! She did everything from recommend a local bakery for the graduation cake (Gamino's doberge cake, which I highly recommend even if you DON'T have an occasion) to provide us with the kitchen items I needed to prepare the food for the buffet, to having beads hanging at the back door for everyone!

Renting this house was the smartest thing we did and was a key part of how much fun we had over graduation weekend. We were able to all be together and welcome some of our son's friends for a bite to eat and a cocktail--try doing that in a hotel! My one regret was that we didn't plan a longer stay!!
