One of a Kind-Get Away/Big Cypress Bayou Near Jefferson&Caddo

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 1 & 1/2 bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

One of a kind retreat for small families, a romantic get away for two, or fishing/hunting lodge.

This property is built over Big Cypress Bayou river which is 3.3 miles from CADDO Lake, 10 minutes from Historic Jefferson, 20 minutes from old money oil town of Marshall, AND 30 minutes from the wide awake Casino town of Shreveport, LA.

The River House is on a private road which lends to peace and tranquility. Great access to the river for amazing water skiing, jet skiing, and boating awaits. If you're not into water sports, fish all day right off the covered deck. If you have a boat, there is a ramp within 100 yards of the house, and lots of great little fishing holes along the river and back into the cypress forest.

The River House has an outdoor grill. A bonfire is always fun in the cooler months, so sit back relax and enjoy the blaze in the fire pit steps from the house.

The River house is within 10 miles by boat or car to 8,000 acres of public hunting land: deer, squirrel, hog, duck, turkey, and alligator to name a few. You must have a TX hunting license and Type 2 permit. Also, be prepared to follow all TX game and wildlife laws for Marion and Harrison County.

We promise you will not be disappointed with the discovery of this off the beaten path cabin of solitude and good times!

About Randy and Holley Brown

We have two children from my husband's first marriage and enjoy spending not only family time at the cabin, but also time alone. We hope you will enjoy the place. Anyone who spends time with us at the River wants to return. We hope you will too!!

Randy and Holley Brown purchased this house in 2005

Why Randy and Holley Brown chose Texas

We enjoy water sports. We enjoy fishing. We enjoy relaxing. This is a perfect spot for unwinding from the daily grind. It is easy access to Jefferson and to Shreveport if we want to pick up the pace a little. We can take our boat into Jefferson and park at the riverbank and shop and eat! Too many great reasons to list.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy taking a boat ride into Jefferson for breakfast on Sundays. We enjoy the secluded area we live in. We have a boating ramp that is within 100 yards of our home, so we have a great time on the water. We can fish right off of our deck because the cabin was built on the riverbank and much, much more.

Neat little cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Nice, secluded cabin with an AWESOME covered patio on the back right over the river. Inside the home, very neat and clean with updated appliances, paint and paneling. AC worked GREAT even on a very humid Texas day! Both TV's have DVD players. Several good restaurants 10 minutes away. I recommend River Bend Restaurant or Big Pines Lodge. Both excellent food and beautiful scenery. And of course, you need to visit Jefferson, Tx for the shopping. All in all, a good weekend retreat!

Fabulously relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed this cabin. Very clean and relaxing. Close to Jefferson for the party nights but away from the hustle to enjoy the sounds of the bayou. Excellent retreat for fishing. Fish were constantly jumping out of the water. Next time we will have a boat to explore the bayou. Host was easy to get a hold of when needed and extremely nice. By the way, our daughter loved the turtle shell! Thank you for the gift! Loved loved loved this cabin! We will be back!

Awesome weekend getaway

Nice secluded, quiet and relaxing getaway on the river. The owners get a five star rating from my wife and I. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very clean accommodations. I recommend this vacation home to my family and friends.

Greatest Relaxation Spot Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My Girlfriend and I were looking for a relaxing getaway during an off week and boy did we find it. The pictures doesn't do it justice. The place was very clean, quiet and relaxing. It almost felt like we were the only people within a hundred miles. It was quaint and secluded and very romantic. The hot tub sits over the Big Cypress Bayou and the view of the Cypress trees and Spanish Moss is breathtaking and majestic. We were left alone and it was completely peaceful. The owners left a key for us and we left them a check, never saw them at all. We would recommend this getaway to any couple looking to rekindle their romance and do some excellent fishing during the day. I'm not sure we have been on a better vacation in our whole life and we have traveled the world. Both Jefferson and Uncertain were great little towns and we enjoyed the little shops and unique fishing camps all around Caddo Lake. The Huck Finn River House is magical!! If I could give it 10 stars out of 6, I would....

Very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing and quiet weekend! Wish the hot tub was working! Caught a few fish but suggest you take your own poles! Very clean and had adequate towels and dishes to cook with! Not much cell service but that was ok and just added to the peace and quiet!! Jefferson is very close for groceries and dining out...cute little town!!

My husband and I took our 9 year old here and it was very relaxing. The property was recommended by sister and her family and we were very glad we took her advice. Very clean and amazing property owners (Thanks Randy and Holley!). We caught some fish, watched the boats go by, visited the Texas and Pacific Railroad Museum (15 min away), played games as a family, built a fire, made smores, cooked steaks, caught an antique car show in Jefferson (10 min away) and much more. Shreveport is only 30 minutes away if you like that. I definitely recommend staying here if you're looking to relax, bond or just like to get away. Very nice...
