An effortless Baton Rouge sanctuary awaits at this family-friendly vacation rental! 'Blue Cottage in the Bayou,' a charming 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, single-story house, has been designed with the traveler in mind.

The property itself is nicely renovated and clean. However, it is extremely close to the railroad tracks (trains come through all hours of the night) it is also close to the road and the fire station. If you are a sound sleeper this could be the place for you. If you prefer a quiet night, this is not the place for you.

Hi Shelia, thanks for your review. After going over your feedback with the homeowner, they wanted to share the following:
- Thank you for staying with us and providing this feedback. The house is near the historic Southdowns, which boasts mardi gras parade routes and several sought-after overpass restaurants and merchants that are connected to the train track. The train travels mostly during day time and early evening hours.
- The fire station is on the main road approximately a half mile away, and sirens may be heard if or when responders are traveling to a call in the direction of the house.
- We include a map on our listing so that guests can see the approximate location and the surrounding area of the home prior to booking, but we apologize that this caught you off guard.
The owners have worked hard to prepare this home for guests, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests!
