Welcome to the Cane River Cottage in historic Natchitoches, Louisiana. Our locally acclaimed cottage is located about nine miles south of downtown historic Natchitoches in the Cane River National Heritage area. Surrounded by 200 acres and gently nestled on the Cane River our Cottage offers the perfect retreat. Northwestern State University (NSU) and the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center are nearby as are the many attractions and landmarks in historic Downtown Natchitoches. Cane River Plantation homes such as Beau Fort, Magnolia, Melrose, Oakland, and of course the famous Taylor-Cook “Steel Magnolia” movie house are just a short drive away. Sibley Lake and other recreational areas are nearby. The Natchitoches Regional Airport (IER) is about nine miles from the Cane River Cottage.

Experience country charm and comfort on the peaceful Cane River in Natchitoches at our Cottage. You’ll be far enough away from it all to lapse into a personal retreat knowing that the historic sights and sounds of Natchitoches are just minutes away. 


Our Cottage offers spectacular river views, three bedrooms along with a fully equipped kitchen, well furnished living and dining room in a beautiful natural setting. Visit our reservations page for more information. When renting master suite or the whole house your privacy is ensured as you and your guests are the only guests in the house when renting the Cane River Cottage.

We want to be your host while in the historic Natchitoches area and hope you’ll consider staying with us while in town for business, that ‘special’ weekend get-a-way, corporate retreat, or social event such as a wedding, reunion, birthday, or just about any other social gathering.
