Beautiful Craftsman built in 1911

This beautiful arts and crafts home was built in 1911 on what was the Main Street in Lake Charles at that time. It has been lovingly renovated and has all the modern amenities , but still lots of charm and Craftsman details. There are three bedrooms. Two with Queen beds and one with a double. The master has its own bath with a deep antique tub and shower. The second bath has a shower/tub and is located next to the other Queen bedroom. There is an on demand hot water tank for endless hot water!

The kitchen has Quartz counter tops and stainless steel GE appliances. including a stacked washer and dryer. We provide coffee, tea and some breakfast items for your convenience. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking along with oil and seasonings. Toiletries and laundry soap are provided also.

Wifi speed is 200mbps. Smart TV with cable, including HBO and Showtime along with streaming apps.

There is a large deck in the back yard with a charcoal grill and two bicycles for you to explore the Downtown area. The backyard sitting area has a firepit. Smoking allowed in back yard with desposing of evidence.

Lake Charles, Louisiana

This is my HomeAway from home!

  • 5 of 5

I have lived in Lake Charles for three weeks while buying and renovating a home. This house is my go-to house because of the convenience, the cleanliness, the price, the beds and the kitchen. It is an excellent property for a reasonable price!! Michelle has answered any question I had and has been so hospitable. You cannot go wrong booking this property!

Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

Very charming home that we greatly enjoyed. My husband I own a 1901 farmhouse ourselves so love old preserved homes like this one. It was about 78-79 during the days inside the home since it was 103-105 outside but at night it would come down some to about 70-72 so we were able to sleep with fans on. Part of owning an older home and not much that can be done about it. We did enjoy being about 5 minutes or so from a Target and restaurants! Also enjoyed the snacks and items in the fridge that were there for us to have! Will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: The comfort and happiness of our guests is very important to us, and we welcome comments that will help us provide a better guest experience. I have noticed that the thermostat will say a higher temp when I have run the dryer for a while, since it is right next to it. The rest of the house is not that temp. Believe me when I say that I know what 78 and 79 feels like. I have an elderly Mother who keeps her house at that temperature all the time, ugh! LOL. Also, the recorded high in Lake Charles for those two days are 93 Friday and 91 on Saturday. Thank goodness we dont hit 100 very often. We will have the AC guy check again to make sure it is working properly. Thanks and Happy travels!

Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house; the layout, the decor, the antique feel to it, everything. If we take another trip to Lake Charles we hope this house will be available because it is definitely worth a repeat.

Pictures do not do this house justice!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came to Lake Charles for my son to play baseball. This house was plenty big to accommodate our needs being a family of five. The house is beautiful and is located where you have easy access to the rest of Lake Charles. Home owner was more than accommodating and my wife and I will defiantly be making a return trip to enjoy this house!
