Welcome to Marvilla!

The Marvilla Guest House welcomes you to enjoy Old Mandeville while relaxing on the verandah of a fully restored 1870’s guest house.

In town for business or pleasure, the Marvilla Guest House is your home away from home, and features original heart pine floors, beaded wood ceilings, and a location offering many amenities.

The town of Mandeville, incorporated in 1840, still has the charm that attracted visitors here so long ago. Our temperate climate, lush oak trees draped in moss, and abundant variety of wild life make Mandeville a perfect getaway.

Marvilla Guest House is one block off of Lake Pontchartrain and is in walking distance of several fine restaurants, antique shops, and boutiques. This small water-oriented community offers lots of water activities like fishing, sailing, and skiing.

For cycling, walking, hiking and skating enthusiasts, nearby Tammany Trace, Mandeville Harbor, and the shoreline of Lake Pontchartrain offer scenic paths to explore.

We at Marvilla want you to enjoy our beautiful city and its sights. So, we invite you to take a ride on the Tammany Trace using one of our bikes, or take a casual walk along the Mandeville lakefront. Making your stay unforgettable is what Marvilla is all about.
