A little bit of heaven on the bayou

4.6 on April 15, 2013

Wow! We could not have been happier with our choice of staying at the Lazy Rabbit. It was such an enjoyable and relaxing experience. The grounds are covered with beautiful plants and vegetation and the cottage is so charming and comfortable. It is only about five minutes to downtown Marksville but is located right there on a beautiful bayou dotted with gorgeous cypress trees. It's truly like being in another world. We were treated to a springtime morning rain tapping on the tin roof which made sleeping in a must. We will return and when we do we are going to take Bill up on his offer to take us out in his boat.
