Wide Open Space 45-minutes from the French Quarter

Big Branch Woodland Retreat is a private retreat adjacent to the 17,000-acre Big Branch Wildlife Refuge. Located just 45 minutes from the French Quarter, this 4-acre vacation home is a great place for families, retreats, and documentary or other type of filming. A gravel road on the south side of the house runs along the eastern barrier of the Big Branch Forest reserve. The 31-mile scenic Tammany Trace is just one mile from the house. The house has a long driveway with a circular drive in front of the house. The house also has a very large front yard, and there is also a carport that has two ceiling fans and lights. There is an old chicken coop on the property along with a covered two person swinging patio chair. There is a small front porch that has a loveseat, two chairs and a coffee table. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a living room, a loft/family room, kitchen and a generous and open dining room that seats 10. We have hosted bridal and baby showers, athletic teams and several documentary film crews.
