The community spotlight today is on Madisonville LA. Madisonville is a small, but rapidly growing, community in St Tammany Parish. Situated just west of Mandeville across the Tchefuncte River and south of Covington, Madisonville has quickly become one of the most sought after destinations for people looking to move to the Northshore.

Not too far from New Orleans and just close enough to Baton Rouge, Madisonville offers small town charm and yet is accessible to the city for commuters and those just looking to be able to enjoy a day out with the family. Madisonville is centered right on the banks of the Tchefuncte River and Water St. is lined with ancient Oak Trees full of Spanish Moss that blows in the breeze along the banks.

I often spend my mornings sitting on the porch of The Abita Roasting Company overlooking the river to have my coffee and grab breakfast. Just half a block down is the newly rebuilt Friends Coast Restaurant. Friends, once a small bar and grill that was destroyed by a hurricane and subsequent fire has come back bigger and better than ever. The downstairs offers a live stage for music, a playground for the kids and even a place to pull your boat up and dock so you can hop off for lunch, dinner or a cocktail. The second floor is a formal dining area with both indoor and outdoor seating that overlooks the Tchefuncte River.

There are often festivals and events in downtown Madisonville along the river such as the Tickfaw 200, which is a charity boat race that brings in thousands of visitors to this tiny town on the water. Every year just off Main St there is an Easter Egg hunt and Egg Drop with live music and activities for families. 

Most notably is the Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival. Every October, thousands of people, both residents and day trippers descend upon Madisonville to see the antique boats that come from all over to show off the beauty and craftsmanship that go into these floating Maritime Museums. In addition, vendors offer food, beverages, art, crafts, and activities for people of all ages. The Wooden Boat Festival, now in its 26th year has expanded beyond Water St. and is now also taking up the local baseball field and park that sits between Main St and Pine St. There is a stage featuring live music, booths and a kid’s craft area near the playground. Nate Walker Properties was proud to sponsor the kids craft area this year along with Cultivation Church. These wonderful events are just a few examples of why Madisonville has become one of the most desirable places in all of St Tammany Parish.

Madisonville real estate is extremely competitive due to the quality of life and wonderful public schools that are offered to its residents. This and its convenient location are driving the housing market and local economy in the Madiosnville community. There are currently over 125 homes for sale in Madisonville. An amazing indicator of the type of growth being experienced is that nearly half of the currently listed Madisonville real estate is new construction.
