Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband along with another couple got to kick back in this very inviting home! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside in the screened in porch keeping warm by the fire. We hope to come back again next year and stay a little longer so we can fully enjoy all that the area has to offer. Thanks for a great weekend!!

Beautiful - comfortable - tranquil!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home - so comfortable and has everything there except groceries. They even provide wood for the fireplace.

It has porches to sit and enjoy nature.

The Melody House is connected to the Harmony House by a long board walk through the woods. Harmony House is a larger home but just as beautiful decorated and comfortable as The Melody House.

These 2 homes are convenient to the Desert Plantation and worked for our family weekend wedding events!

A great place to stay!!!

Loved the private setting. Loved that we were connected by a bridge to the h next cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We had a small intimate wedding and due to the weather we were able to utilize the carport area for the event. It was perfect. The bride and groom stayed in the smaller cabin and the parents stayed in the la r get cabin. Our guests lived in B a ton Rouge and went home a fter t he wedding with the exception of two f a miles that stayed in the Magnuson. That restaurant was so close and convenient. Great experience.

Great place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Melody House. The house is very nice and was very clean upon our arrival. The back porch and deck were great for relaxing and enjoying dinner and drinks. It's mostly secluded with a wonderful view of the woods. The giant window in the master bedroom was great to wake up to. We will definitely be back.

Peaceful and gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very impressed with the home and property. The Melody house we stayed in had a log cabin feel to it with all the amenities of your own home and more. The home was very clean and well maintained. The views from the Melody house were spectacular and very peaceful. Our first day we went to Tunica Hills for some hiking and returned before the rain came. We enjoyed some wine and a fire in the fireplace on the outside covered porch while it rained. The next day was spent visiting some plantation homes and the historic parts of St. Francisville. Our favorite restaurant was Satterfield's in New Roads because we got to eat outside on the water. We returned home on the third day telling all our family about our little trip and showed lots of pictures. I booked this trip for my husband's birthday. He deals with a lot of stress at work and i wanted something peaceful for him. He really enjoyed the peacefulness of the property and relaxing while at the Melody House. I never had a chance to meet the owner of the property, but he is only a text away. A few times I texted him and he responded immediately and is very courteous.
