The Marsh House is a unique home located on Bayou Liberty in Slidell. Bayou Liberty joins Lake Pontchartrain and is one of the most scenic bayous in Louisiana providing an important bird sanctuary for many species, marshes, cypress tress, and moss-draped live oaks. Guests are welcome to bring their own boat(s) and use the 100-foot dock or rent boats in the area.

The 3,500 square foot home is spacious and perfect to entertain a large group in. There are two living rooms with wood-burning fireplaces ,a formal dining room accommodating 12, and a very large kitchen stocked with ample plates, glassware, pots and pans for large get-togethers. In addition, there is a screened porch off the living room with an outdoor stove and BBQ pit, an ideal setting for watching a sunset on the bayou. Above, there is even a moon deck. A very large yard makes for a makeshift family football game (football provided).

The Marsh House has a front and back porch which extends the length of the home. Off of these porches are 5 spacious bedrooms, 3 of which have kings, 2 have queens, and there is also a futon and baby's pack and play.

For fishing enthusiasts, the nearby Lake, as well as the bayou are teeming with speckled trout, redfish, crabs and other brackish water species. Fishing charters are available in the area. There are several fish markets in the area, if you would rather someone else do the fishing.

There are two public golf courses within a fifteen minute drive as well as a multi-plex Imax theater, swamp tours and other recreational attractions.

The Marsh House is close to visit New Orleans or the Gulf Coast - about 30 minutes away. It's a wonderful home for family reunions or just getting friends together. Laissez bon temps roulez!

About Beth McFarland

I was born and raised in New Orleans. I enjoy jazz, gourmet cooking and the arts. I take a great deal of pleasure suggesting to guests things I think they will enjoy visiting and experiencing in the Greater New Orleans area and Northshore. I can let you know about the best restaurants, hidden treasures and upcoming special events I think you would enjoy during your stay. I have another property down the road, Jabberwocky, which I also rent out. I am restoring an old hotel in Vicksburg MS. If I am unable to greet you, either Niki or Mr. McHenry will show you around and they are just down the road if you need anything.

Why Beth McFarland chose Slidell

This house is great for a large group of people - either for a family reunion or retreat. It's incredibly spacious, so there are lots of conversational areas - on the two porches, the moon deck or in the two living rooms. The kitchen and dining room are also generously sized for preparing and enjoying great feasts.

What makes this House unique

There is 100 feet of dock for those who would like to bring their own boat. There is a public launch just down the road. Boats are also available for rent in the area. It's a perfect place to wind down after sightseeing in the city.

                                                      Awesome place to stay for a large family gathering

                                                      Linda J.

                                                      We stayed at the Marsh House for 3 nights in February for our family group of 10. It is a perfect place for a large family gathering. Plenty of room to enjoy inside and outside plus close to lots of activities. We even saw alligators in the bayou right out the back! Loved it!

                                                      Excellent property

                                                      Sarah M.Champaign, IL

                                                      Beth was a fantastic hostess! She answered all our questions and was quick to respond during the booking process. The property is amazing; spacious and quiet, a perfect escape from the hustle of New Orleans. It is well maintained and very comfortable. And there's a resident gator in the marshes, so cool!
