Sticks and Stones is a luxury bayou estate hidden away in a wildlife sanctuary 30 miles north of New Orleans. The house is nestled off of the historic Bayou LIberty on Bayou Narcisse. This place is truly one of a kind and has been featured on Discovery Channel's Ultimate Homes.
The back of the house is all glass, providing endless swamp views. The house itself is a work of art, full of comfortable furniture, antiques, fine art, beams, hardwood floors, and custom stonework - including a massive fireplace. It's truly unlike any other bayou home.
Freshwater fishing is available right from the backyard, or saltwater fishing is only a short boat ride away on Lake Pontchartrain (which is available upon request). Pontoon boat tours and evening wine cruises are also available to you.
If you'd like to bring your own boat, we have a private boat launch with plenty of docking. We also have kayaks, a canoe, and paddle boat on site.
The property also has a very large swimming pool, pool house, and separate bathroom outside. There are intimate seating areas located around the property including the pool area and back patio, as well as a table outside.
The kitchen is a chef's dream. It has an eight burner Viking stove with a four blower vent hood, a triple commercial sink with sprayer, stocked pantry, and a 25ft concrete island that comfortably seats 12.
The master bedroom has a top of the line king size Sterns & Foster mattress completed with a hand-carved Indonesian headboard. From the bedroom, you have spectacular bayou views. You can spot wildlife, seasonally, including alligators, bobcats, otter, deer, eagles, ducks, woodpeckers, and much more!
The master bath has a large soaking tub, a separate shower, two sinks, endless hot water, and a walk-in closet.
Upstairs, there's a second master suite with a queen bed and full bathroom. Across the breezeway, there are two more bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed, and another full bathroom. A single bed can be added to these, if requested.
Each bedroom comes equipped with a flat screen TV, and there are also two additional TVs downstairs, one in the kitchen and one in the living room.
This was a last minute trip to visit family for the holidays. Greg, the owner, is great guy, he was very helpful and flexible.
The pictures of this property do not accurately capture the atmosphere of this property. Very peaceful and relaxing. This house has so much character. You will not regret staying here.
We cannot begin to describe what a wonderful weekend this was. We came to the sticks and stones for a girls getaway and spent the weekend enjoying all of the accommodations the home had to offer. From kayaking every day to swimming and relaxing in the hammock it was the perfect retreat from New Orleans. We met Greg at the house at the beginning of our stay and he made us feel so at home and let us know he was always available if we needed him. We would love to come back again someday!
There were 13 of us and 1 baby, we thoroughly enjoyed this property. It was close enough to New Orleans that we could go in for 1 day of Mardis Gras. The property is very clean and comfortable and the property owner/manager was very helpful. It is a very spacious home with a lot of different sleeping configurations so that everyone was comfortable. Would rent it again if the opportunity presented.
We had a great experience here over Thanksgiving weekend. The views of the bayou are great from all of the downstairs rooms. Nice patio area, as well as a nice pool area. The owner was helpful in recommending local restaurants and in his overall coordination of our visit. Master bedroom and master bath are very nice. Upstairs rooms are fine, though not as spacious. Highly recommend.
This was the perfect setting for our daughters wedding. I am the father of the bride so I wanted it to be perfect and it was. Greg was clear on the expectations and size limits of the wedding. After a tour of the property, my daughter who lives close by was convinced it was the right place. With a guest in every bed each of the 3 nights, we enjoyed the house and getting to know our new extended family. Everyone enjoyed themselves including those that stayed in the local hotels. As for the wedding, is was outside on a cool fall evening , along the bayou at sunset. Yes it was perfect and Sticks and Stones made us all feel welcome.
What can I say it was just amazing! Greg was the best even took us for a boat ride. You can just fall into the beds, kitchen was great, pool was great even left some pool toys behind for other guests. Greg was easy to work with, prompt responses. The house is a gem, close to everything! 25 mins to Nola. Can't wait to come stay again! Waking up looking out on to the water every morning was perfect.
This is a beautiful property situated on the bayou and only 30 short miles from New Orleans. Boating, fishing, and swamp tours are some activities guests will enjoy in rural Slidell. New Orleans is only a short drive away to experience city life: the famous French Quarter, carriage rides, bars, shopping, Mardi Gras, and countless restaurants with world famous food.
