Natchitoches is the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana Purchase territory (1714) four years older than New Orleans in fact. There are car tours to several antebellum homes down the River Road, as well as horse and buggy tours of the Landmark Historic District. There is easy access to Cane River Lake as well as Red River. Natchitoches is known for its festivals and there are many to choose from. Live entertainment is provided at several of the downtown restaurants and bars, and in the summer the Green Market is held every Saturday on the riverbank.

About the owner: This property has been in my family for about 50 years. One of my close friends really wanted to open a bed and breakfast and she approached me about buying into my property and doing a guest house together. We have worked very hard to make this home something to be proud of and comfortable for people to enjoy and use. We have had many comments in our journal and guests truly seem to appreciate our efforts. This Cottage is really a home away from home! Natchitoches is a lovely place to visit and explore. Carrie and Pat
Why the Owner Chose Downtown Historic, Natchitoches, LA, USA:
Natchitoches has so much to offer to visitors and it's surprising how many people have moved here after one visit. There is also a very active artist community and there's certainly plenty of material to foster creativity. Northwestern State University has a wonderful music department and throughout the year has many concerts. The drama department also features plays on a pretty regular basis. Many people come here to research their genealogy either at the college library or the Old Courthouse where many records are kept.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property is unique because it is so close to locations of interest within the city. It is located one block behind Kaffie Frederick General Mercantile, the oldest store in the state of Louisiana. You won't want to miss a visit! The Natchitoches Events Center is about a block away. The Parish Courthouse is about two blocks away and the downtown area and restaurants are all within short walking distance.
