We just stayed at Marvilla last night, and it was a perfect lakeside retreat- I called ahead because we were running late and weren't going to arrive before 11pm and Michael replied with, " No problem....are you beer drinkers or wine drinkers?" and when we arrived there was a bottle of wine, a corkscrew and two glasses waiting for us! The room was very comfortable and well made with a balcony on each side and a beautiful, deep tub in the bathroom. It had the feel of a very clean and stylish lake cabin complete with lakeside view!!! We stayed there the night before we flew home from a driving trip from NOLA up into Mississippi and back, and we didn't want to stay at an Airport hotel- we made it to the airport in about 40 minutes during morning rush hour, with the added delight of driving across the Lake Ponchartrain causeway! This place is a laid back, lakeside delight- we only wish we could have stayed longer!!
