-- THE PROPERTY --
Bedroom 1: King Bed | Bedroom 2: King Bed | Bedroom 3: King Bed | Bedroom 4: King Bed
Idyllic days, peaceful nights, and all the best of Southern Louisiana await at this serene riverside home. Exposed beam ceilings, comfortable furnishings, and floor-to-ceiling windows invite you to relax and rejuvenate beside the Tchefuncte River.
Sink into the comfy chairs in the living room, and curl up with your favorite book in the sunlight streaming in through the wall of windows. Turn on the flat-screen cable TV and catch a game or watch a movie as you unwind.
Just through the sliding glass doors, the expansive second-story deck is furnished with padded seating so you can enjoy stunning views. From here, you can head down to the docks to swim or spend a day out on the water in your boat.
When you return, stay in the shade on the covered patio below the house, where Adirondack chairs and 2 charcoal grills provide the ideal barbecue space for your group. The chef won't want to miss cooking in the fully equipped kitchen, which boasts stainless steel appliances and ample counter space under cathedral ceilings.
The extended hardwood dining table has plenty of space for everyone in your group to enjoy home-cooked meals together. If you need additional seating, the breakfast bar boasts 6 stools.
Go for an evening ride along Tammany Trace and experience the lush tree-lined path before returning home. When you're ready for bed, retreat to any one of the bedrooms where you can climb into your king bed and watch one last episode on the flat-screen TV before dozing off for the night.
-- THE LOCATION --
Bring your boat along and park it at the private dock for endless fun spent on the Tchefuncte River! When you need a little more room for watersports, follow the river to Lake Pontchartrain.
Travel 14 miles to Fontainebleau State Park, a 2,800-acre park featuring the ruins of a sugar mill built in 1829, a sandy beach, countless trails, and over 400 different species of animals. Those looking for an extensive hiking and biking trail will want to hop on the Tammany Trace Trail, a converted rail trail that spans 31 miles.
The exciting culture of The French Quarter is just over 40 miles away from the home. There's something for everyone to enjoy including boutique shops, museums, restaurants, and plenty of nightlife.

Renting was fast and easy, description was right on, location was fantastic... however, the cleanliness was a little lax: carpets and floors need a good vacuum, some of the outdoor lighting didn?t function, indoor ceiling fans wobbled and rattled... but nothing that we couldn?t overcome, especially since the outdoor setting was really, really nice. Great docks, lots of outdoor seating with chairs and tables, and a relaxing porch swing! Really nice!

This home is absolutely gorgeous. We enjoyed our stay from the time we got there till the day we left. Our Only suggestion would be label the light switches. Really enjoyed the view of the river from the deck in the mornings enjoying our coffee. It is definitely a place for rest and relaxation.

This was such a great location for 7 ladies to have a retreat ... spacious kitchen, cozy living room with fireplace just in time for the cold snap that hit. The split floorplan was very nice too. LOVED the porch overlooking the river. Somewhat rustic but warm and inviting.

Great house for our group of eight for a weekend partying in New Orleans and a football gameday in Baton Rouge. The house is perfectly located for both but you can just as well stay on the property and enjoy the wonderful deck, patio, or take a boat out on the river. The entire team at Evolve, and especially Billy, went above and beyond making our trip perfect. Really can't say enough of about their excellent communication and commitment to go above and beyond to make our stay one to remember.

This was a long weekend get away with family, The house was perfect for us to be able to relax and enjoy each other?s company in a very quite area just minutes from the City of Covington and all of its great restaurants, although we chose to prepare our own meals!! I just can?t say enough about how this house is set on the property and let?s the natural setting of the river keep its identity.
