Come explore the history of Natchitoches Parish and discover the stories of the people of Cane River Country. Visit the Cane River National Heritage Area.

From early Native American Indian inhabitants to the French explorers and priests to the American arrival in the early-1800s, Natchitoches has lived through hundreds of years. They arrived into the United States in 1812 and to this day the Indian, French, Creole, African American and Anglo cultures mix their cultures, traditions, and talents, and yet they remain distinct.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We purchased this property while my son attended Northwestern State University. He wanted to live near campus and this duplex home was perfectly located within a short commute. The attached fully equipped extra unit allowed for the design of a guest suite apartment. He has graduated, and we now consider this guest suite our family’s vacation retreat, known to us as “The Cabin in the City”. We have worked very hard to make our home comfortable for people to enjoy and use.

Why the Owner Chose Natchitoches, LA, USA:
Natchitoches is home to Northwestern State University and many locally famed festivals. This historic college town has so much to offer visitors. Arts, Music, and Drama events foster creativity in this lively and active artist community. Many people come here to research their genealogy either at the college library or the Old Courthouse where many records are kept. Natchitoches is known as the 'City of Lights' offering its annual multiple week, 'Christmas Lights' show that dazzle all who attend. Festivals and food delicacies can be enjoyed year-round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This property is unique because it's location is in the heart of the city, within walking distance to the famed Historic Front Street, Cane River, downtown area restaurants, and other locations of interest. The City is celebrating all year long, as it hosts various events and festivals! Every year in November/December, Natchitoches is the 'City of Lights' for the holiday season. Since its beginnings in 1927, the Festival of Lights has grown into Louisiana's premier community based Christmas Celebration. A family celebration, the festival is held annually beginning late in November through early January. Over 150,000 visitors flock to this historic town and are treated to a gigantic parade, star studded live entertainment throughout the day, dozens of food vendors, carnival rides, river cruises, carriage and trolley tours, and a spectacular fireworks show. After which, over 300,000 brightly colored Christmas lights and over 70 huge set pieces light the city along the scenic Cane River Lake. The Christmas Festival of Lights has been listed as a 'Top 100 Events in North America' by the American Bus Association for numerous years and has also been honored as one of the 'Top 20 Events' for December on six occasions by the Southeast Tourism Society. The Natchitoches Christmas Festival of Lights is a partner with the Holiday Trail of Lights. Also, the surrounding area is great for Fishing and water activities. Travel just a few miles north to Toledo Bend Lake for all kinds of water Marina for outstanding boating and fishing.
