We are working on a movie that is shooting around here. We have been here 3 times in the last six weeks. Leaving for probably the last time we were so sad because the stay was so remarkable. To say we love this place and loved staying there is an understatement!

I visited Ellen's home on New Years Eve to propose to my girlfriend. To say that this home is stunningly beautiful, serene, and energetically perfect would be an understatement. The house was immaculately clean, warm and cozy. It is no surprise to discover that Ellen is a renowned interior designer. Her home, which she designed reflects her brilliance. The house is located in the woods in a stunning area of Louisiana. From minute one, Ellen was kind and quick in her responses. In communicating with Ellen I didn't feel as if I was dealing with a renter but with a family member. This home is worth every penny. A magical place in the woods. We can't wait to return... I could write a essay about how kind and wonderful Ellen was to us and how happy we felt in her home. Every aspect of this rental was perfection. It was truly a heavenly experience. Rent this place. Phenomenal. - Also for anyone looking or in need of paints or interior design, this is your lady. A brilliant and kind woman living in paradise.

This was so idyllic, a perfect Louisiana visit. The house and grounds were so sweet. Isolated and private but also close to evwerything. We had a terrific visit!

Ellen was so friendly and responsive in our interactions before my group's stay that I knew it was going to be a great experience. She went above and beyond, sending us detailed directions and instructions for getting in the house, suggesting restaurants. True southern hospitality! Our group was very happy with her spacious home and gracious hosting and will definitely be back!

I am an interior designer who left NYC to return to Louisiana because I missed nature. I designed Shadetree Inn B&B, St. Francisville's most popular B&B, as well as several other AirBnB rentals (Harmony House & Melody House) and my own home (Zen Retreat in the Louisiana Woods). Each property is unique but all are very private, very comfortable, nature-inspired getaways.
