For those looking for a little weekend trip before summer's officially over, NOLA.com reports that starting soon you can reserve an adorable waterfront cabin at Mandeville's Fontainebleau State Park. The cabins have been out of commission since Hurricane Isaac in 2012, and Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne announced today that starting Aug. 17 they'll be available for reservations.
The 12 cabins, which are furnished and have a variety of floorplans (head to the NOLA.com post to see inside the cabins), have been repaired and fortified at a cost of $1.5 million. If you're itching to book one of these babies, reservations go live here on the 17th. The 2,800-acre park is about an hour away from New Orleans proper.
