About La Raison d'Etre

/ re-zawn-de-truh / noun

Reason to be

A person's raison d'etre is their purpose or reason for living. It's why they do things. In French, raison d'etre literally means "reason for being," and in English it means about the same.

Inspired by the surrounding landscape, we dawned the property name La Raison d'Etre because here time slows down and the water, birds, and 100-year-old oak tress provide respite, fosters peace, and gives space to relax, breathe, and simply be.

  • Ample space on 2-acres with 100-year-old oak trees

"Most mornings the guys were out on the dock fishing while the rest of us were enjoying coffee with a beautiful view. The beds in every room were so cozy and comfortable. I absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home and we will be back."
