Had a good time :)

This is a nice cozy, quiet, peaceful place to relax. The cottage was very pretty, and the Jacuzzi tub was great to soak in after hiking and biking in nearby Kisatchie National Forest. After supper at one of the nearby restaurants, I enjoyed relaxing on the back porch with coffee and watching the antics of the geese and ducks that hang out on the bank of the bayou. Lots of funny photo opportunities! :-)

Great stay for a wedding night!

Booking and checking in/out was easy! We stayed here for our wedding night and enjoyed the space, cleanliness, amenities, and distance to the airport the next morning. Would recommend to anyone in the Alexandria area for a wedding night space or weekend getaway!

We flew to louisanna for a 50th reunion and made a trip around the lower part of the state, staying at a variety go places. Susan's was one of the best, the comfortable bed great placement of furniture and fabulous tub. The deck and turtles made for for a great night. I was disappointed about the kitchen. I was prepared to fix a great dinner, instead had salad only. Salsa s breakfast was wonderful.

Alexandria get away

3.6 on April 29, 2015

Our hostess was very accommodating and had a key waiting for us. When we couldn't find the coffee she was a phone call away. We only had two negative things we observed: 1.) the other guest used the washer and dryer which were adjacent to our room and 2.) there was little room to walk between the bed and the opposite wall. Other than those minor details it was a great place to stay. The bayou view was terrific.

Best Bed And Breakfast Ever

You have to believe me when I say this was the best stay away ever. Perfect getaway, country setting, extreme southern hospitality! Over and beyond our expectation. Satisfaction guaranteed.

My husband and I stay here each year for our anniversary. It never fails to please. The cottages are always clean, well furnished and adorable. Our home made breakfast was great. The whole atmosphere is so relaxing. We always leave much more relaxed. Would definitely recommend

Christmas Eve Stay

5 on December 26, 2014

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The rooms weren't done justice by pictures to me; it was beautiful! This was my fiance's birthday night and he had never experienced anything like it! (Plus, I added a little "floral" and candied decor to the room to add a little spice. The grounds showed the part of Louisiana I love the most... nature, bayou, & trees! The amenities and food waiting sealed the deal... Great little snacks that he enjoyed mostly all of. I am elated to say I had the chance to experience this myself. And that Jacuzzi... I think I may have gotten too excited, because I never actually been in one! Overall, this was a Peaceful, romantic getaway not far from home... We DEFINITELY will be back soon! Thanks a bunch Mrs. Susan!!!

Wonderful!!!! Very comfortable! You guys had everthing we needed and thank you for the late check in. Sweet little cottages! Will definitely recommend and come back!!
