Property description


(Google Bayou Life Magazine/ Doin' Bruin/ July 2015 to see a feature article in the July 2015 issue. You'll see much better pictures!)

LAKE BRUIN OXBOW LODGE is new, after being rebuilt (due to tornado damage of April 2011). The Oxbow boasts a wonderful 6 bedroom/ 4 bath house that is 2-story. The upstairs den is an enormous 1200 square feet and opens to a 400 square foot balcony that is covered and has fans. The new 500 sq ft addition holds a monstrous bathroom/ dressing room with 3 sinks and a huge shower + a 2nd full-size laundry room. The downstairs has another den and a 600 sq ft screened sleeping porch with fans. There is also a 'camp room' for the kids (inside). The lake side of the house is all glass and the sunset views are AWESOME! The top floor has a vaulted ceiling that brings the sunset inside. From the upstairs den, you step out to a 48' wide deck.

You won't believe the dock...over 2200 sq. ft of space, boat slip with lift and a swim deck for the little ones. A huge 2nd swim dock (32x16) has been added. The new swim dock has built in benches for enjoying the sunset. A large covered area has fans. The dock is large enough to hold your party or reception!

There's plenty of room inside and out and the property is very private.

The house is very well equipped...plenty of linens, pots & pans, grills...we even stock the pantry for your convenience!

Across the street is the Lake Bruin Country, swim, play tennis! Swimming is $5/person/day and tennis is free. The green fees are $28(week days) and $38 (weekends)...and that includes the cart.



Lake Bruin Oxbow Lodge is an extraordinary venue for your wedding. There is an arbor covered with pretty vines to wed under and a gorgeous lake (and sunset, if you wish) for a background.
The grounds and dock provide a different setting for your reception, and there's plenty of parking for your guests. Call or email and we will build your personal wedding package. We have a special package that includes 3 days & 2 nights...location for rehearsal & dinner, wedding & reception, and house your guests for 2 nights...all for $3000.

All properties are directly on the lake and have large docks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Robert and Judi Horton...We purchased our first lake property in 1992, decorated it to please and started renting. Our customers marveled at how nice the property was and that we would rent it. It was a hit and turned into a great business. One of our customers just HAD to have it, so we sold, bought another property and have had one weekend open the whole year. Next we bought a condo in Hot Springs, Arkansas on Lake Hamilton. Lake Bruin Oxbow Lodge came next. Lake Bruin is a very popular recreational lake and the Oxbow has become a very popular venue for family reunions, business meetings, retreats, etc.

Why the Owner Chose St Joseph, LA, USA:
Lake Bruin is a very popular lake for folks from Louisiana (Monroe, Alexandria, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, etc.) and Mississippi (Vicksburg, Jackson, Natchez, etc.), yet lacking in lodging accomodations.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
To add to the fun, we are located across the street from the country club. Oxbow Lodge has lots of room inside and out that makes it a great place for reunions, weddings, meetings, etc...yet, a romantic spot for just two. Our location boasts a spectacular sunset. The huge decks give you plenty of space for 'oohing & ahhhing'! Another extraordinary feature is the enormous dock with its open air room and boat house with lifts. We have added a very large swim dock with built-in benches for recreation and viewing those gorgeous sunsets.
