The SpaceTwo acres of modified Mayan architecture (parts still under construction) in the heart of the Louisiana sub-tropical rain forest, next to the 18,000 acre Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge on the north shore of the 630 square mile Lake Pontchartrain, just 35 miles to the New Orleans French Quarter (45 interstate minutes driving time)...miles from everything, yet minutes to everything.
