Located on a 4-acre wooded hilltop bird sanctuary in Saint Francisville’s Historic District, Shadetree offers tranquility, rejuvenation, privacy and a closeness with nature. Although Shadetree has permanently closed as a bed and breakfast, we are offering a unique opportunity to lease Shadetree’s Loft and Gardener’s Cottage on a long-term yearly basis. Both are completely furnished including bedding and bath linens,
kitchenware for the wet-bar complete with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Utilities, WiFi and Cable TV are included. The Loft has a private balcony and The Gardener’s Cottage has a front porch. Both share the grounds which include a picnic table, fire pit, swings, Adirondack seating and a hammock over looking the dale leading to the Mississippi River.
Walk Amongst the Birds of Shadetree
There’s a reason that Saint Francisville inspired Audubon to paint his Birds of America – the bird enthusiast will be overwhelmed by the diversity and vibrancy of bird life at Shadetree. The hilltop’s proximity to the Mississippi River and Bayou Sara make it an ideal bird sanctuary, and hundreds of species of birds can be observed from the comfort of personal outdoor seating areas. Join us on a video stroll across the property to see for yourself.
