The town of Springfield/Killian is one of the nicest and most scenic areas of the state. Tin Lizzies Restaurant & Bar and Boopalu Bar can be seen from the 100 foot riverfront boat dock & deck where you can hear the live music on weekends. The Prop Stop Bar and Lake Maurepas are located about 7 miles by boat.

About The Owner

I live in Denham Springs, LA with my daughters and grandchildren who live close by. Livingston Parish is a great place to visit and enjoy the outdoors.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Springfield

Originally I purchased this house on the river so my parents would have a place to visit during the fall & winter after Hurricane Katrina destroyed their home in St. Bernard Parish. I got many requests from people who wanted to rent this house on the river.

What makes this house unique

The house is located on one of the most beautiful rivers around. It is wide and several bars and business are located close by. Lake Maurepas is only 7 miles away by boat. The trees around the house are beautiful and gives a very secluded feeling.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is amazing!! It feels like you are in your own little hideaway, we had activities planned for the weekend but did not want to leave the house, it was so nice. Fernando is great to work with and is willing to help in everyway. We will be back very soon!!! We are in love!

Great Birthday Weekend! Beautiful, peaceful & relaxing setting.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Southern Hideaway on the Tickfaw River. Fernando was very quick to respond, both for making the reservation and for any questions we had prior to our stay being very organized and efficient. The location and setting were no less than spectacular. Nestled at the dead end of a winding country road with an incredible view positioned right in a curve of the beautiful Ticfaw River, the hideaway offered us the privacy and peaceful setting we were looking for. The house is located less than a quarter of a mile from a nice boat launch and we were able to dock our boat at the large deck / wharf right in front of the house with confidence (we did bring our own bumpers).

Each day we enjoyed morning coffee on the wharf, lunch on the back patio, and grilled chicken / steak in the evenings other than one fantastic meal at Charlie's, the restaurant that Fernando recommended. The food was great! We recommend the fried softshell crab and the corn & shrimp bisque! Wow!

The layout of the house was great with lots of different places to relax and enjoy our stay.

....... the upstairs master bedroom offered a great morning wakeup view of the river and cozy place (the upstairs deck) for coffee and reading as well.

Our daily excursions up & down the river offered us the opportunity to see beautiful houses, a stop for a drink at a local grill, and the opportunity for freshwater fishing, and more peaceful relaxation. The house was well equipped and all our needs were met.

Thanks Fernando for your hospitality and willingness to share your piece of paradise. We will definitely be back!

Great for a fishing camp

  • 4 of 5

House had a great deck for river viewing. Kitchen is fairly well stocked. Needs a few mixing bowls. Great parking for vehicles. The BIG bar just up the river was thankfully closed our weekend. Even with that lots of river traffic. House needed a deep cleaning. Linen left much to be desired. Overall great for a fishing camp.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Excellent Location to all the boat ramps and the rivers. The dock on the river was fabulous. The living room and tv was a great place for us to relax. Plenty of parking, chairs and seating areas. Owner was extremely helpful and responsive. Very easy to work with. Had efficient kitchen items. Easy access to the house. Appliances worked great. Air conditioner worked great.

Cons: Mattresses were so uncomfortable we got air mattresses to sleep on. Not enough linens for the beds, so bring extras. The water in both bathroom showers trickled and we ended up using the hose outside to shower. The downstairs bath was hard to regulate the hot and cold water.

Definitely a great place for those weekend fishers! Everyone on the river was very friendly and nice. Would definitely stay here again if the water situation got fixed and better mattresses were in place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a response. I am happy you enjoyed the river on the new deck and the house. Yes, it's a great place to go fishing. With regards to the linens, the only ones provided are on the made up beds. We do not provide extra sets, since we noticed that previous guests were taking spare the sheets and pillow cases on their boats or outside and wound up damaging or staining them. As an alternative, there is a laundry room with soap detergent provided to wash the sheets if a guest desires. I'm not sure why there was difficulty with the shower faucets. I will look into that. Replacing all the mattresses was definitely on the to do list for this fall. Thanks again.
