Thank you so much for taking such good care of us! The cabin we stayed in last weekend was immaculate, private, and tastefully decorated. We highly recommend Susan's Cottages for a wonderful getaway. Jason and Jennifer Lindsay

Our wedding night

5 on October 09, 2014

Everything was perfect! The night we arrived we had flowers waiting, rose petals on the bed and the mini fridge stocked with drinks and some snacks incase we needed them. The next morning breakfast and coffee was served at our cabin, where we ate and enjoyed it on the porch looking at the Bayou. We loved it, and will come back again.

Absolutely Lovely

For our 10 year anniversary, the Gardeners Cottage was perfect. King sized bed, heart shaped Jacuzzi Tub and plenty of room for just two. The Dozen Roses and Chocolate Covered Strawberries were there waiting and a hearty home cooked breakfast was delivered at 0900 on the dot the following morning. The kitchenette area had snacks and the mini-fridge was full of cokes and juices with ice available too. The double door back porch/balcony offers a sneak peek into Louisiana Life overlooking a lily pad filled bayou surrounded by Cypress Trees. The grounds are as immaculate as the inside of the Cottage. I made reservations for this place and everything went perfect. The room was ready, the specialties were delivered and the service was top notch. The pricing for this place is very fair considering the privacy you receive and the beauty of the place. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away for a night or two. By the way, there (is) a door on the bathroom and as far as the Tv Combo…..well we weren’t there to watch TV.

Much less than I expected!

1.8 on July 13, 2014

Undersized air conditioning unit can't keep up with the Louisiana humidity and heat in July. Ceiling fan rattles and shakes. I was surprised it didn't fall on us during our stay. Owner doesn't allow bubble bath in the jacuzzi tub and threatens with a $200 cleaning fee if you add bubble bath. No trash, cleaning or towel services provided. No detergent, etc to use washer/dryer that is advertised. The little tv/DVD combo on top of the china cabinet leaves much to be desired. No door on the bathroom, only a curtain. Nothing screams romance like sitting on a toilet in the kitchenette/bedroom! It's a gorgeous, peaceful setting, but I'd suggest bringing your own food, beverages and comforts of home along with you. I'd have much rather stayed in town with a continental breakfast and access to more amenities. I would have expected to pay $65 a night or less for such a room.

Great find!

This cabin was just what my husband and I were looking for to go for a quiet, relaxing weekend to celebrate our anniversary! Clean, clean, clean!

Very Nice

We stayed in the Rose Cottage and it was very clean, and we loved how the cottage was decorated. Very nice and relaxing stay.

My husband and I went to the cabin this past weekend for our 2 yr anniversary. The décor and food was awesome. It was very peaceful and romantic. Susan and her son were some of the nicest people that I have met. We will be going back to stay. The Greelys
