About Vincent Chatelain
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.
Vincent Chatelain purchased this House in 1999
Why Vincent Chatelain chose St Francisville
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

This place is awesome! We enjoyed the screened in porch, it was peaceful and quiet . The property is well kept and decorated beautifully.
We spent most of our time on the screened porch by the fireplace. Great space to relax and visit with friends and family.
Relaxing, beautiful place to stay
The Harmony House was such a wonderful place to stay! We loved all of the outdoor seating and all of the incredible views! Tunica Hills was only 10 mins away and was extremely easy to get to from the house! We will definitely be back!
Thank you and do please return!
The best rental property in St Francisville, La.
Great property. Tried something different this memorial day instead of the beach. Started with a run on Old Angola road as a family with friends, then a hike at Tunica Hills, and then a nights with Friends and kids at this wonderful house. The most peaceful place in Louisiana! Beautiful property. Attached to another great house-Melody House- connected via a lighted bridge. It has a great deck with with covered sitting area. Grilled steaks and enjoyed our family and friends. Wonderful VBRO house. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Beautiful - enjoyed very much
Enjoyed it very much. Friends stayed in the other house and the bridge connection between the two was beautiful, convenient and fun for the kids. Great way to spend a weekend with 2 families who want to hang out and keep their own separate spaces.
If I went back tomorrow it wouldn't be soon enough!
Staying in this beautiful home was an absolute treat and I'm already planning my return visit. I treated my mother to two nights in this charming cabin for Mother's Day, and she was just as in love with it as I was. Every detail has been carefully chosen and you can tell there was a lot of love that went into creating the space. It's oh-so-charming and comfortable. The pictures do not even do it justice. Keith was so kind and accommodating. He made the experience even that much better. Can't wait to return soon!
Thank you, Leigh. The real payback is in the feedback on what guests experience and share, and we are immensely delighted in yours.
Sightseeing 'the Old South', golfing difficult courses, playing blackjack, is all within 30 minutes away. You are deep in plantation country. Do not miss the museum at Angola, the falls of Clark Creek, the drives through the country side to Natchez, and St. Francisville. Stop in nearby Woodville for lunch and visit the square for antiques and the old courthouse.
