Photos and Description of the Independence vacation chateau / country house rental

Chateau / Country House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

La Petite Maison, 'The Little House', is a beautiful home built in the 1870's. The home is set on a truly beautiful southern setting with gorgeous 200 year old live oak trees surrounding it. The home is on 8 acres of very secluded property that includes a beautiful Cabana and pier with a gorgeous view. Renovated in 2008, the home retains its antique look and feel. This New Orleans style home has beaded board walls and 12 foot ceilings throughout with an open floor plan.

The Kitchen is quite large with all new appliances and beautiful copper countertops. A large bar is attached to the kitchen island with four bar stools. The dining table is built from southern cypress and measures nearly seven feet in diameter with seating for eight. All dishes, utensils, pots & pans are provided.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds with an additional trundle if needed. The living room has two very comfortable sofas and a large 56' LCD HD Television. DirecTV programming is available on all TV's in the home. Wireless broadband internet access is also provided.

There are two spacious porches on the front and back of the home as well as a separate concrete patio area canopied by live oak trees with custom made BBQ pit, hammock and swing.

Historic Downtown Hammond has great shopping and a variety of excellent locally owned restaurants. A newly constructed shopping center with major retail stores and movie theater is also located in Hammond, just 10 minutes away. Ponchatoula, LA is Hammond's sister city known for it's antique shops that line the cities downtown area.

The French Quarter is only an hour drive south down scenic Interstate 55. On the way is Middendorf's restaurant... The best seafood platter around!

The home is not in a subdivision which provides guests with a relaxing, private and super quiet getaway that is also close to New Orleans and other interesting south Louisiana locations.

La Petite Maison is also available for Executives and Corporate Rentals. We can arrange for short and long term rentals depending on availability. Snowbirds are welcome, escape the freezing temperatures of the north and enjoy south Louisiana's warmer climate.
