About the Property
House, 6 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 2-30), TWO dens, HUGE dock
The ULTIMATE Lake House! The Oxbow boasts 6 bedrooms/ 4 baths + a huge sleeping porch. The house sleeps up to 30 folks!
The upstairs den is an enormous 1200 square feet and opens to a 575 square foot covered balcony with fans. The balcony is 48 feet wide. The Oxbow is an entertainment heaven for family, friends, weddings, business meetings, etc.
This property is very charming and unique....all the walls are either pine or white-washed brick and all the ceilings and counters (kitchen & baths) are aged tin. Antique collections abound.
The new 500 sq ft addition holds a monstrous bathroom/ dressing room with 3 sinks and a huge shower "room" (5x7). The bath is designed like a cabana in that it has a door to the outside so the kids can enter without having to go through the house. The addition also holds a 2nd full-size laundry room and the "Camp Room". The kids LOVE the Camp Room!
The downstairs has another large den, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a 600 sq ft screened sleeping porch with fans. The sleeping porch is cool even in the Summer because the back of the house is built into the earth. The porch sleeps 8 + there are 7 cots (military cots from Cabella's/ hold up to 350 pounds) that can be used on the porch, or inside if you like.
The lake side of the house is all glass upstairs AND downstairs....the views and sunsets 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.
There is a ramp entrance for handicapped (or lazy!)
You won't believe the DOCK...over 2700 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 and watching the kids. The dock swing is a favorite perch for watching those gorgeous sunsets. There is also a "party room" on the dock. The dock is large enough to hold your party or reception!
And FISH! We had one visitor that caught over 300 "large" white perch off the dock. He said, "For the first time in my life, I'm TIRED of catching fish!"
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, grill, etc.
Across the street is the Lake Bruin Country Club...golf, 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.
The Oxbow was featured in BAYOU LIFE MAGAZINE in July 2015. If you would like to see more pictures and the article, google:

The Oxbow Lodge is located on the "inside" of the lake, or the "island" as locals call it. Oxbow is across from the northern tip of the Lake Bruin Country Club Golf Course.
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.
