Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I moved to St. Francisville in 1996 and had the opportunity to renovate over 11 beautiful properties, some historic, some simple, all with history and the care of this charming and special countryside. I sold the B&B to a favorite customer who improved it more than i could have imagined.

Why the Owner Chose St Francisville, LA, USA:
This area is home of Ouida Plantation, originally purchased by in 1997, and vacant for 75 years prior. After a total renovation, Ouida and its' cemetary sits quitely down the road. Harmony House was a caretakers' cottage style built for Ouida in 1999, then turned into a deep woods rental. It was built among much fanfare as the first 'new' property ever admitted on Audubon Pilgrimage in 1999 for one day, but.... over 3000 people came to tour in 3 days, making it the most successful pilgrimage the historical society has ever put on, with even Governor Murphy Foster and our first lady visiting his great grandmothers' home place and the house that Senator Foster married her in 1895. History runs deep here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a modern gem surrounded by seven acres of trees, decks, bridges and ravines. It is truly a unique property that can adapt to the specific type of rental you are looking for. As it is, you have a relaxing weekend getaway like no other. With additional seating and lighting, this property is a beautiful backdrop for a party.
