Why Ryan Pitre chose Lake Catherine
This property provides a one of kind combination, bringing to you a private waterfront nook with a gradually descending sandy bottomed area that can be played in like being at the beach, a 200' fishing pier, an on-site private boat launch, and great hang-out spot either in the camp or under the camp! Other properties nearby have one or the other, none have them each. And all with provided equipment to enjoy it all: crab traps, bbq pits, fishing poles, boiling pots & propane, kayaks, paddleboards, Blu-Ray Players, Wi-Fi, Flat-Screen TVs with cable, and so much more.

Perfect for family vacation minus boat launch
We rented this camp for 4 nights for my grandmothers 90th birthday. It was about 9 adults with a couple kids. We all comfortably slept, the sofa beds were nice. There’ were plenty of pillows and blankets. The best part about the camp was how PREPARED it was. They had EVERYTHING, from extra batteries to a life jacket for my infant! The water toys were a hit with the big kids ( kayaks and paddle boards). We had a BLAST catching fish off the pier and the porch was amazing!! Everything about the camp was so great. Everything was so CLEAN!!! There is really only one complaint which is why I am giving 4 stars. We had two boats there to fish in, the boat launch is not usable because the water is so shallow. We had to drive to the marina to launch daily, this was not ideal. If you do not plan on launching boats- this camp is Awesome!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the positive feedback and I'm glad things overall went well. I'm sorry to hear though about the boat launch not working sufficiently for your group. The lake has been unseasonably low as of late, but I will make arrangements to get the slip dredged out so that it can have enough water depth needed and remain usable regardless. Thanks again.
Amazing well appointed property.
Ryan, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your home and property had everything we could possibly ask for (except the crabs weren't running)! Total comfort and the service elevator was so helpful. We will be back!!!
Great location and beautiful accomodations
Loved our stay at this camp. It was very nicely appointed and really loved the fact that it didn't skimp on all the little necessities, like having more than one roll of paper towels, trash bags, shampoo and soap. Having an in house ice maker was definitely a bonus when we needed to ice down the fish we caught. They even had a supply of laundry detergent. Wonderful touch! Appreciated the free wifi and the use of the Wii. Great fishing is just a few minutes away and the marina to purchase bait is only 5 minutes up the road (Island marina). Pier was great, especially for night fishing. Only thing I wish was to have been able to tie the boat up to the pier at night but nighttime lake weather made this unwise. Beds were comfortable too. All in all, I would stay here again and heartily recommend to my friends.
Stop looking! This house as all you need and more. Ryan is attentive to needs and responsive to questions. The only thing he can do to add to the experience is add fishing rod holders at the end of the dock! We will be planning another stay in the future!! Thank you Ryan!
Close enough to drive to New Orleans, took a Boyou Swamp Tour, access to groceries to fix seafood in a great kitchen. The view and dock were perfect. Thanks for everything!
Great place to stay!!!!
Ryan was awesome to work with. He is very responsive and everything is as advertised. The house has everything you could want. The location is far enough from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans but close enough to get into town for the activities. The pier is awesome!!! I hope to stay at this house again in the near future. The only minor I thing I could think of to improve the place might be a couple of small reflectors on each side of the driveway. The driveway can be difficult to see. We felt like we may have been pulling into the yard a couple of times. In all fairness, there was a heavy overcast so it was really dark.
Thank you for sharing your house with us Ryan!
