The Meadow Cabin is awesome! The grounds are wonderful.

5 on July 16, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at LRB. The cabin is so beautiful; The sceened-in porch did not disappoint. We were able to cook all of the meals that we brougnt along with us. We also enjoyed the ride to the little village of Folsom. You must stop by Gene's country store for crawfish boudin and also Hot Tamale Mama. The gumbo and beef tamales are wonderful! Don't forget to sit out on the porch at night and enjoy the lighting bug show. David also provides some home made bread for every guest, and it is delicious. The pond is so relaxing and beautiful. The trails are well maintained if you are up for a walk. I would recommend LRB with pleasure.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much. We love the fact nearly 80% of our guests are "repeats" and some have retreated here many times over the years....and still keep coming! We love it.


Perfect getaway!

As always,, Little River Bluffs is a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy the best part of life--friends, loved ones and nature. David is always so gracious and my family looks forward to the visit every year! Can't wait to get back!

Off The Grid

4.8 on June 16, 2014

If your looking for a place to really "fall off the grid" from the stress of work, this is definitely the place. Great southern hospitality and very private and a comfortable feeling of seclusion. David and his family go out of their way and take pride in this place and it shows.


Overpriced, and Other Issues

1.4 on May 27, 2014

We stayed in the Meadow Cabin--so this review does not address the other facilities. While the size and location of the cabin were fine, there were maintenance issues that were very troubling given the cost. The screened in porch had tears that would allow mosquitos in. The refrigerator was not clean. There were cockroaches in the kitchen. The towels and sheets were obviously quite old. Some of the food items that were provided were not in great shape. We have stayed in other cabins with similar problems but the cost MUCH less. We have actually stayed in a 2 bedroom river facing condo at the foot of the Smokies that was less than this. And, it is not a private as we expected. There is a lovely outdoor shower, but shortly after using it, we were totally caught by surprise when the owner pulled up in a golf cart unannounced. The golf cart was so silent we didn't realize anyone was coming until we saw him at the screen door to the porch. Some people might see this as providing a personal touch, but having just been unclothed in what was supposed to be a secluded outdoor shower, we felt intruded upon.

Innkeeper Response
The Meadow Cabin was scheduled to be re-screened and was 3 days after the last guests departed. We also added "animal wire" on top of the mosquito screen. Also kitchen deep-cleaned. Guests' privacy is our foremost goal. If the Innkeeper should come to any cabin, it is rare and only because we have not heard that guests have arrived or otherwise been able to receive returned phone calls to them, as in a recent case. The back porch shower is purposely out of sight of the entrance, and private even if the Innkeeper should arrive on a golf cart. Since last guests, Meadow Cabin repairs put it up to its best.


Most beautiful, peaceful retreat ever

5 on May 14, 2014

This was by far the most beautiful retreat I have ever experienced. If you want privacy, nature, beauty, and an overall gorgeous place to get away, this is the place for you!!


Like visiting the Ozarks

Our family spent a weekend at The Lodge. What a beautiful home - I can hardly consider it a cabin. Everything was immaculate and the "do it yourself" breakfast was tasty, especially the homemade bread. The furnishings are beautiful and the views from every window are breathtaking. The surroundings are amazing. Acres of hills and streams covered with native Louisiana foliage and hardwood trees. Thank you David and Doris for sharing this piece of heaven on earth with us!


Spring Retreat

As usual, an excellent and beautiful place!!


A totally relaxing 4 days

4.8 on April 29, 2014

We had a wonderful time at the Lodge. Everything couldn't have been better. One maintenance issue came up and was immediately handled. We loved wandering around and finding all the different little statues and sculptures tucked away in spots all along the trails and around the house; nothing obtrusive, just blended right in and were great additions to the natural surroundings.
