About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

" Isle of View" is a spectacular 3 bedroom, two and a half bath, custom-built home on 7 private, wooded acres in Folsom Louisiana, with gorgeous sweeping views of the Little Tchefuncte river. This home is absolutely perfect for either a short get-away from the hustle and bustle of city life, or for an extended period of total relaxation and seclusion. With the enormous windows, and wide wrap- around decks, you will feel literally feel like you are living in a tree house, yet you will have all of the creature comforts you could ask for. If you are looking for the perfect place to unwind, then this is it.

Amenities include:

>An enormous great room with huge vaulted ceilings, rustic French antique walnut table from the early 1800's that seats 6 with a huge Elk antler chandelier above it. There is room for two more people at the kitchen bar. There is a very large comfortable sectional sofa that two people can sleep on, as well as a smaller sofa and two chairs positioned in front of the gas fireplace. If two people sleep on the sofa, then the house will sleep 8. For entertainment, there is a 60" Flat screen television in the great room, with the capability to stream movies ( Firestick) as well as a DVD player. The decor is the perfect mix between modern and rustic, with many interesting and fun pieces of art to enjoy.

Guest access

Guests can access the entire property with the exception of the third floor and the larger closet in the master bedroom. Guests will have access to the smaller closet in the master bedroom, which is still very large. The third story of the house is its own separate apartment and there is a caretaker that occupies that apartment on a part-time basis. She is mature and very quiet, and keeps to herself and is only there about half of the month. She is available by appointment for preparing private meals and is truly a phenomenal cook. I did not list this as shared space, because you are not sharing any space on the first or second floor. This situation is like having a separate, very private condo on top of the condo you are renting.

You will be blown away with the unique appeal that "Isle of View ( I love you, get it? ) has. We can't wait to see you!

About Property Manager/Owner

My girlfriend and I fell in love with this property and purchased it with the intention on one day living here full time. We thought it would be fun and make financial sense to rent it out to select guests that would also appreciate it and take care of it.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This was such an amazing beautiful home. We stayed here one night on our way to Gulf Shores and we absolutely loved it. The decks were awesome to have our morning coffee. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to stay longer!

out in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Marcus is what you want in an owner, he was very responsive, gave us plenty of dining options and things to do, the wildlife preserve that he suggested was great and getting the private tour that he said to get was well worth the extra money I did appreciate that little tip thanks Marcus. The house is very unique out in the woods and away from people which is what we wanted, but be aware of lots of bugs, spiders and bees. Thought there might be some walking paths on property but was very little. Inside house had open floor plan from kitchen to dining to living room. Master bathroom was huge, great walk in shower but was a little disappointed that we were not able to use claw bathtub in master bath as it was out of order and Marcus told us that ahead of time. Kitchen was good size but need to get more cooking pots and pans containers and bowls with lids and especially need a toaster. We cook a lot when we stay at a vrbo and were disappointed on the cooking ware. Overall Marcus was a high 5 star but house was a 3 1/2 star with cooking ware and bugs spiders and bees knocking house score down. total 4 star

Beautiful secluded location!

This is a great home. It is a beautiful secluded location that would be great for entertaining lots of people, or a family getaway. Just minutes from Cafe Du Monde begniets!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this breathtaking, peaceful and beautiful home tucked back in the woods. We were secluded and in a quiet place for three nights and enjoyed our stay. The owners were super accommodating and friendly, made sure we had everything we needed and that we were comfortable. A perfect location for a getaway full of quiet and relaxation. We spent our time enjoying our family, going on nature walks and enjoying the great outdoors in God's creation!
