It is a prime area for birding and wild life. You can fish from your back porch. The style of the house is reminiscent of the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, complete with a rainwater-fed pond underneath the deck that adjoins the two separate wings of the lower level. It is located on seven acres with natural foliage with a wooden pathway to the dock that is on Bayou Liberty. The front of the cedar home is covered in vines and faces the pool, the back of the home faces the bayou. Lake Pontchartrain is a short boat ride away where speckled trout is the desired catch of the day. Bring your boat and use the boat house, or use the flat boat to troll down the canal which leads to the bayou.
The home is located on two levels. The lower level is handicap accessible via a ramp . The lower level is divided into two wings by the walkway over the pond and stairs to the upper level. There is a Corinthian wind chime hanging from the stairs near a large fountain in the pond.

Great house on the bayou in Slidell. Host provided everything we needed and was very easy to be in touch with. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quick get away from New Orleans.
Thank you so much. I'm glad you enjoyed the getaway. Happy birthday, again!
My husband and I took our family vacation to this lovely home with our three kids, and they loved it! It was so hard to get them out of the house. Beth, the owner was amazing. As soon as I told get we were coming with the kids, she gave us recommendations on where to bring them, which was great! Nikki, was there to meet us upon arrival to show us everything. The pool was great for the kids and the back decks were perfect for us parents to get away from them and have some quiet time. The town is great as well! If we come back to the area we are definitely going to try and stay here again. Just close enough to new orleans to explore, but far enough to not here the chaos. Thanks again, for everything.
Beautiful house. Plenty of room for everyone. We really enjoyed the turtles too!😁
WE loved our little resort on the bayou. The kayaks and flat boat were fabulous. The peace and quiet of the country was relaxing!!! We were close enough to New Orleans and just far enough away!!! Thanks Beth for a great family get away!!!
Only trouble was the furnace has trouble turning off, but it isn't usually cold either!!!
Great Retreat! And room and privacy for all.
Very accomodating. Well supplied kitchen. Very peaceful setting.
An Ideal Get Away
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Secluded from noise, very spacious with so much room to wander around & find something to do. The boats are so much fun to paddle around with & fish till your hearts content. Ms Beth met us on arrival & gave us a grand tour. She was also readily available for us to discuss any problem/question. I highly recommend this location to anyone wanting a real peace & quite get-away on the bayou. Don't get no better!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! The property is designed to refresh the mind and spirit! Come again!
