  • Kathleen has created a most serene place brought to life by unique architecture and art. The room was clean and comfortable with an unbeatable lake view. Kathleen herself is a wonderful and warm presence.

    We only got to spent one night but was able to enjoy lounging on the terrace, as well as, a walk on the path along the lake. A great way to feel close to nature. Highly recommend and already hoping to visit again!

  • If you are looking for a unique, eclectic, earthy, laid back place to stay, this is the place! Beautiful windows overlooking a peaceful lake. Kathleen is warm and welcoming and a very talented artist.
    We're glad we stayed!

  • Relaxing and quiet in a beautiful setting. Enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

    January 2014
  • We very much enjoyed our sweet getaway to Kathleens in the country. The quiet, stillness, and birdsong was just what we needed as a respite from the busy city. We felt very welcome and were made to feel at home. We also enjoyed the company of her friends. Especially loved the quiet walk along the levee and canoeing at sunset! thank you!

  • This is a one-of-a-kind home on a gorgeous Acadiana lake. I rented the whole house with a group of friends over New Years, and had a lovely getaway from New Orleans--indoor and outdoor fires, canoe rides, and lots of slow hours laughing and playing music lakeside. You'd be lucky to stumble upon this little gem!

    January 2014
  • Hi,

    Thanks !!

  • We stayed just for a night to attend a friend's nearby wedding. The house and location are beautiful and eclectic. Make sure to make some time for the lake and wonderful setting. Kathleen was super sweet to us.

    November 2013
  • This guest house is a gem, and it is made more precious by Kathleen's warm and caring approach to her guests. The lake setting is special, being quiet and beautiful. The house is a labour of love resulting in a rustic, eclectic combination of window filled rooms. Kathleen is a font of local knowledge and we enjoyed our stay so much that we extended it by a couple of days. The accommodation is off the beaten track but still close enough to frequent the small villages doted around the lakes. This is not your usual airbnb but we found it a great base to explore the area authentically. Thanks Kathleen
