About the owner: Our names are Lucretia and Bob. We currently are retired and live in South Carolina. Bob was an engineer and through employment assignments, we have been able to travel and live in many locations, both in USA and abroad. We spent several years in Dubai, UAE and Singapore. Lucretia is a native New Orleanian while Bob is originally from West Virginia. We were married at the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter and lived previously ten years in Mandeville.
Why the Owner Chose Mandeville: Being born and raised in NOLA, Lucretia has always missed the Louisiana culture. Old Mandeville offers small town charm yet big city conveniences. We loved Old Mandeville when we lived here and love it even more now. The Mandeville Tree house is our return home cottage. We hope you will enjoy the Mandeville Tree house as much as we do.
The managers of the Mandeville Tree house are the previous owners of the property (Warren and Mindy) and are readily available to assist you.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: This home is located on the north shore in Historic Old Mandeville, just one short block from Lake Ponchartrain Lakefront. The Lakefront offers beautiful views and opportunities for walking, biking or just relaxing on the seawall. It also offers a playground and water fountain for children to play in. Numerous excellent restaurants are located within walking distance from the home. The St. Tammany Trace (bike trail) is nearby and the New Orleans French Quarter is an easy drive away. The home itself is in a beautiful setting, privately located within a grove of large oak trees. Enjoying refreshments on the covered front porch is very enjoyable.
Short drive to major attractions. Short drive to Gulf Coast. Walk to Lake Pontchartrain. Walk or bike to numerous restaurants and nightlife entertainment.
