If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, this cozy cottage is your perfect vacation getaway! The cottage is nestled between the Diversion Canal and the scenic Petite Amite River. (The Diversion Canal is a large waterway from the Amite River to the Blind River.) This golf cart community (golf cart included with rental) offers peaceful tranquility from the noise of everyday life! The island has a community pool and Bar-B-Que Pavilion for your enjoyment. Take a boat ride around the island to see beautiful swamps with large cypress trees dressed in drooping moss. On a good day you might see turtles, alligators, nutria and snowy egrets. Stop in at the Blind River Bar for their famous “Worm Bucket”! Or you can enjoy hours of fishing and waterskiing on our lakes and rivers. If you don’t have a boat, you can take a golf cart ride to Moonies Bar and enjoy live music and spicy boiled crawfish. Delicious Mexican and Seafood restaurants are ten minutes away from the cottage. Enjoy margaritas from Sarita’s Mexican Restaurant, all minutes from the cottage (New location of Sarita's Mexican Restaurant is 18780 Highway 22, Maurepas, LA.)

Chic, cozy retreat!!!

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriends and I chose the "cottage" for a "mom's weekend off" and it was the perfect choice! We wanted a place that was kind of close to home but still away from it all. The cottage was decorated so chic and the views were spectacular!!! We LOVED the golf cart aspect of the weekend. That added a lot of fun to the trip! We met Linda from the store and she was so sweet. I was kind of eerie about the run down camp next door (when I read the reviews), HOWEVER we were happy to be next to it because it's vacant and provided us more privacy!!! We definitely plan to return and would recommend this place to others! Thankyou to the owners for sharing their peaceful retreat with us!!!

Wow! A beautiful quiet place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the relaxing stay we had at this cottage! It's a golf cart only community so it's perfectly quiet while you watch the boats go by out of the comfort of the living room! We will stay again!!

Great Waterside Location

  • 5 of 5

This place was fabulous. It is tastefully decorated, and the view from the living room and porch is gorgeous. The sun rose and set over opposite ends of the canal and was truly stunning. The golf cart ride was actually quite an enjoyable way to get to and from the house. The beds are very comfortable, the A/C works great, there are plenty of dishes and pots and pans, a grocery store and restaurants are nearby (Sarita's is especially good) and the place was very clean. We will definitely be back.

Amazing, this was the best little get away spot we could have hoped for.

  • 5 of 5

Our oldest son lives in Texas and me, my wife and younger son live in Ohio; we were looking for a place to vacation where he and his fiance could meet us for a trip and this was absolutely PERFECT. It was clean, beautifully decorated and sits in a great location to relax (either to fish, go to the community pool or just look-out at the scenic views of the water).

One of the best things about the trip - NO WiFi. Everyone had to talk to each other instead of play on their phones, I loved it!!!!

We were within an hour drive to both Baton Rouge and New Orleans, which made great day trips.

The owners were fantastic and very helpful, we will ABSOLUTELY be back! :-)

Right on the river

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is amazing tons of space, central air, clean

Close to baton rouge, not to far from new Orleans

And the golf carts make things interesting. The only issue is that the cottage doesn't have any WiFi and if you have tmobile you'll have no service out there.

It was a great trip
