Slidell house description
The Bayou House on Bayou Lane is centrally located in Historic Olde Towne Slidell, a short walk to Heritage Park, City Hall and local Olde Towne Businesses and Bars. This home feels secluded, but is located in the heart of town.
This house has been completely renovated and designed to entertain. This home is perfect for weddings, corporate rentals, Executive rentals, Movie Talent housing, or even an exclusive family vacation. The Bayou House is not your typical home rental. We limit the available rental time, so that our family can enjoy the home too. We only rent the house for periods of 1 week at a time and limit those rentals to 12 times a year. The home is not available for rent from June 1st through September 1st of each year.
For rental functions that require outside catering, we have three local, convenient, and great food caters located within 6 blocks of the home. We can also offer rental chairs and tables for invited guests at an additional fee.
The entrance foyer and front great room give an open airy feeling of country living. Nine windows provide plenty of sunshine into this comfortable open space. The great room has a sofa & love seat combination with end tables, a coffee table, and a cozy chair with ottoman. A large 60” LED TV hangs on the far wall with the entertainment center and surround sound.
The kitchen has a six burner gas cooktop and oven as well as a second electric oven. It has a microwave for heating up food quickly and even a warming tray for keeping your food warm. Of course it has a large two compartment sink, dishwasher, refrigerator and wine chiller. The granite countertops complete the elegant look of the kitchen.
Every Bedroom is spacious. The master bedroom and closet, has a King Sized bed, dresser, and two night stands. The “blue” room and closet has a queen sized wicker bed, armoire, and night stand. The “plantation” room and closets has a queen size bed wrought iron bed with netting. The “shark” room and closets has a kid’s bunk style bed.
The main house does not have a fireplace, but the focal point of the gazebo is the stone outdoor fireplace. The raised gazebo measures 24 ft by 30 ft with an 80 foot boardwalk to the outdoor entertaining space on the bayou. The entertaining space measures 50 ft by 20 ft and reaches out into the beautiful Bayou Bonfouca.
Parking for up to 6 cars is available in the carport and rear parking area behind the main house. Additional parking is available on the street in front of the house for larger parties.
Access to the house is convenient by both car and boat.
From I-10 take exit 265 west for 2 miles,
from the north launch at Heritage Park and head south two (2) turns in the bayou, or
from the south, enter Bayou Liberty from Lake Pontchartrain, turn left onto Bayou Bonfouca and follow it up to the Bridge. Just past the bridge, after two (2) turns, look for the property on the right.

About the owner: I am a local businessman who has lived in the Slidell area for over 40 years. My wife and I enjoy boating and scuba diving as well as numeorus other charitable efforts. I am a licensed private pilot.
Why the Owner Chose Slidell:
I purchased this home from a childhood friend after her parents passed away. Growing up, I had always admired this home and its stately grounds. I recall as child playing ball in the rear yard. The location of this home is convenient to old town businesses and bars. It's walking distance to Heritage Park and the many cultural activites held there. It's also easy to get to.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has a 700 square foot gazebo with outdoor stone fireplace. It has an 80 foot elevated boardwalk between the gazebo and the boat dock. On the western end of the boardwalk, we have a 1,000 sq ft entertaining area with gas grill and TV. The home is located in the Heart of Slidell, just a short distance from Heritage Park, City Hall, and the many antique stores located in old towne.
