Quaint Studio Cottage

There are beautiful views from this cozy cottage. It's the perfect place for anyone to get away for a few days. There is fishing or canoeing only steps away from your back door and a public boat launch just around the corner. We have 2 bikes, 2 kayaks, a jon boat and a hot tub for your use. Our place is quiet, quaint and has the amenities of home. Come soak up some fresh air on the porch while gazing out at the bayou.

About Heidi Brown

My husband and I live on the property in the main house with three friendly cats that roam the property. We love to travel and meet people. He is a surfer, and I love to read. We work in our garden and around the property when the weather is good. Cabo San Lucas Mexico is our second home.

Heidi Brown purchased this Cottage in 2014

Why Heidi Brown chose Shreveport

We love to share our slice of Bayou heaven with guests. If you have any questions about the area or lake we love to give tips. If you would just like to relax and enjoy some privacy we are more than happy to accommodate.

What makes this Cottage unique

We want to provide our guests with outdoor activities. We have two bikes and suggest a ride to Richard Flemming Park/ boat launch. We have a hot tub for two to relax in with a privacy wall around it. We have 3 kayaks, a canoe that holds 3, a paddle boat, and a metal jon boat to cruise the bayou. We also have a large dock and swing by the water to enjoy the early morning birds or sunset.

We drank our coffee on the porch and enjoyed the birds singing while gazing at the beautiful cypress trees in the water every morning. At night we grilled and played games on the same porch and then headed to the hot tub to relax our muscles that we used canoeing that day! I was worried that the hot tub wasn’t going to be private enough when I looked at the pictures but the way they have it set up you feel like you are the only people on the property. We seriously didn’t want to leave! Book now you won’t regret it!

                                                                      Wonderful cottage

Amazing decor and excellent presentation. Clean! Thanks for the taste of Louisiana with the Zapps chips in the snack basket! Heidi was extremely responsive via email communication and had a great chat with Jake upon arrival. Really nice set up. I hope to come back and enjoy the lake during warmer weather!

The place is very taken care of and absolutely charming. You can go on hikes and all kinds of outdoor activities or you can stay cozy in the cottage and watch movies or play games. Will definitely visit again.
