Why Sarah Howard chose Baton Rouge

It's in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood and very close to LSU and the LSU Lakes, which we enjoy nearly every day. Our neighborhood has a real 'American' feel to it with white picket-fenced homes and some sidewalks. There is a charming child's park across the street that our family and friends use.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to LSU (walking distance) and the Lakes for sports, recreation, leisure, birdwatching, etc. We love the numerous live oak trees that populate this part of the city and even views outside our windows - from the upstairs balcony you feel like you're living in Europe.

Fabulous experience, great property

  • 5 of 5

The house was large, lovely, and elegant, with great living space--and a huge dining room table, which is important to us--for our family crowd that was in town for a wedding on Thanksgiving weekend. The kitchen was well-equipped--and we used it--the beds were comfortable, and the courtyard was a special treat. Well-located with access to parks and grocery stores and the campus. The owners were VERY responsive and generous with information that we asked for. It was truly perfect, one of the easiest and most pleasant rental experiences we have ever had.

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

Karen's home and hospitality are second to none!

A group of us met here for the Alabama vs LSU game.

Karen met us at the house, showed us around, and left us her contact info if we needed anything.

The home is beautiful. There's a bathroom for every bedroom, and there's just no way there could be a better location for access to LSU and the local restaurants and bars.

Thanks Karen! We had a great time!

Fantastic home and location

  • 5 of 5

The Hornsbys have done a great job on the renovations of their classic home... They were very accommodating to anything we needed... No detail is left unattended...

We have already talked to them about staying there again on subsequent trips to Baton Rouge... In 40 years of going to Baton Rouge, by far the best place we have ever stayed!

Baton Rouge for a graduation

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great stay. Recently we were in town for a graduation. I have two small children (1&3) and my mother-in-law. It was perfect as I stayed with the children during numerous activities for the grad. A park within walking distance and the room to move around (unlike a hotel room) it was easy to keep the children on a schedule a feed them what we wanted with all the benefits of this house. When we are back you will be getting another call - thanks again Karen

The most beautiful peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

I am not one to write reviews but Karen's home exceeded our expections. Our stay was a home base for our daughter's April wedding in BR. Peaceful, quiet, comfortable and so much space inside and out. The bridal party got ready there and the house made a gorgeous photos. We hosted friends and family the day after the wedding on the patio. We enjoyed coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings on the second story balcony. We walked to the LSU spring football game. We would love to come back in fall. Thanks Karen everything was perfect!
