Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This cozy cottage is nestled along the bank of the Atchafalaya River, minutes from Interstate 10 and half way between Baton Rouge and Lafayette, La. Drive through your own little private swamp as you enter the property, then it opens up to the cottage. The front porch is only steps away from the river. Large windows line the front of the home so no matter where you are you have a wonderful view. It is a perfect place to relax while surrounded by nature.

The space
While this cottage is close to Interstate 10, it is still away from the hustle and bustle and a perfect place to relax with nature. Due to this, cable t.v. and internet are NOT available. There are over-the-air channels and an assortment of movies for you to enjoy. Our place is furnished with a full size washer and dryer.

Bottled drinking water and gallons of water for cooking are provided due to the cottage having well water that I wouldn’t recommend consuming.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans, silverware, cooking utensils, measuring cups/spoons, plates, cups, toaster, food processor, microwave, oven/stove, coffee pot (with coffee), and microwave. We also provide cooking basics including salt/pepper, flour, and sugar.

The fridge is also stocked with essentials including mayo, mustard, ketchup, and bottled water. Ice trays are located in the freezer and all made with bottled water. Please do not eat or take the food located in the freezer.

The bathroom is also fully stocked with towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, toothbrush/toothpaste, band-aids, hydrogen peroxide, and basic otc medicines.

This cottage is located on a bluff just feet away from the Atchafalaya River which is a very large river with a strong current making it an unsuitable environment for children to be left unattended outside. Swimming is not permitted. It sits on over an acre of property, so there is plenty of room in the back yard to run, play, and have fun. Fishing is often not possible from the property due to it being on a bluff. There are multiple public places to fish from the land near by and 3 public boat launches in the area also. The porch offers rocking chairs and lounge chairs for you to relax and enjoy the view.

You’ll be the only ones on the property so you will be able to have a relaxing private stay. The fences on both sides of the property outline the area for your enjoyment.

Where you’ll be

Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, United States

The cottage is located just a few minutes south of a Louisiana Visitors Center (which is directly off I-10). There is a bar and also a gas station with a deli located on the drive between the cottage and the interstate. A few more minutes past the cottage and you will be at the boat launch for the Atchafalaya River located in Butte La Rose, La. A small general store is located across from the launch. Very close by is Henderson, La and it offers some amazing Louisiana cuisine including Crawfish Town USA and Pat’s Fishermen’s Wharf. A short drive down I-10 and you will be in Lafayette or Baton Rouge. If you are interested in escape rooms, the award winning 13th Gate Escape Rooms are a short drive away.
