About this property

Breathtaking, Wooded River Retreat " Isle Of View"

" Isle of View" is a spectacular 3 bedroom, two and a half bath, custom-built home on 7 private, wooded acres in Folsom Louisiana, with gorgeous sweeping views of the Little Tchefuncte river. This home is absolutely perfect for either a short get-away from the hustle and bustle of city life, or for an extended period of total relaxation and seclusion. With the enormous windows, and wide wrap- around decks, you will feel literally feel like you are living in a tree house, yet you will have all of the creature comforts you could ask for. If you are looking for the perfect place to unwind, then this is it. Amenities include: >An enormous great room with huge vaulted ceilings, rustic French antique walnut table from the early 1800's that seats 6 with a huge Elk antler chandelier above it. There is room for two more people at the kitchen bar. There is a very large comfortable sectional sofa that two people can sleep on, as well as a smaller sofa and two chairs positioned in front of the gas fireplace. If two people sleep on the sofa, then the house will sleep 8. For entertainment, there is a 60" Flat screen television in the great room, with the capability to stream movies ( Firestick) as well as a DVD player. The decor is the perfect mix between modern and rustic, with many interesting and fun pieces of art to enjoy. >Gas fireplace >Bedroom with bunk beds, games, and toys for kids. The bunk bed is two twin Serta, mattresses, so smaller adults can sleep on them if need be. This bedroom also has a television/DVD combo. > Horse-theamed Bedroom with very comfortable queen bed, dresser, and large closet. >Very clean bathroom with tub/shower. >Extremely large master bedroom with large, very comfortable King size bed, flat screen Television with DVD player.

Inquire for pricing. >Cleaning during your stay including laundry service. >Professional photographer. >Large gatherings such as weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, retreats, etc. can be scheduled. Please inquire for scheduling and pricing. >Catering is available Guest access Guests can access the entire property with the exception of the third floor and the larger closet in the master bedroom. Guests will have access to the smaller closet in the master bedroom, which is still very large. The third story of the house is its own separate apartment and there is a caretaker that occupies that apartment on a part-time basis. She is mature and very quiet, and keeps to herself and is only there about half of the month. She is available by appointment for preparing private meals and is truly a phenomenal cook. I did not list this as shared space, because you are not sharing any space on the first or second floor. This situation is like having a separate, very private condo on top of the condo you are renting. You will be blown away with the unique appeal that "Isle of View ( I love you, get it? ) has. We can't wait to see you!

Entire place

You'll have the entire home to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

A very unique property in a lovely country setting.

If you are a seasoned traveler who can appreciate this wonderful house set deep in the woods then you will love this location. If, however, you are a nitpicky perfectionist who has no concept how much work it takes to maintain a property like this and bitches about every little thing, then this is probably not the place for you. We loved our time at "Isle of View" and know exactly how much work it takes for Marcus to maintain this huge estate.


This is a beautiful property and house and lived the seclusion. However....

The condition of the inside of the home was not great. It was spacious and beautiful, but it was not very clean. The kitchen had not been cleaned properly, with food on counters, stove and in dishwasher. There was a lot of dirt on ceiling fans so didn’t use and fireplace did not work. It appeared they may be updating some things, which is good as it is much needed. We liked the house a lot and had it been clean and better kept would have enjoyed. Would loved to know the history of the home. Overall were satisfied which is the reason for the 3 stars. Owner was very helpful and gave us great tips on food recommendations for New Year’s Eve. This place definatly has the potential to be a 5 star rental

Interesting Property and House

This is a very interesting property and home. Super big with plenty of rooms and space for a family. Marcus, the contact for us, was nice, responsive, and accommodating. Unfortunately while we were there, the weather turned too cold to sit out on the decks, but the house has fantastic outdoor spaces, both on the second floor decks and around the home. Master bed was super comfy, as was main room couch. A bit of a weird layout inside, but nothing that would prevent you from enjoying your stay.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful home

Home is beautifully decorated, surrounded, almost enclosed by trees. Returning to it after nightfall when the lights are on is almost magical. Elevator is a little tricky at first, you must call it to the floor you are on by number, then be patient and wait for the floor light to go out before opening the door, otherwise you will have to call it again. It works perfectly once you get the hang of it. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Global Wildlife is literally just down the road, and Isle of View is a great place to stay for visiting the park. We had an amazing time with the giraffes, all the animals were just wonderful. I hope to return again next year.

4/5 Good

Pretty much secluded, open views, lots of room.

We wanted a secluded place, that we could enjoy nature. This house is open, lots of space, and good views. The wrap around porch was very enjoyable. It was quiet, peaceful, and very relaxing for us. We definitely would consider this Rental again.
