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/1BDRM/1Bath +Futon:see photos (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 Karnack

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.

Awesome get away on Caddo Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts have done an outstanding job with this place. The place was very clean and there were no issues with anything. We have rented properties on the VRBO website before and couldn't say the same for all of the others. If you have a passion for the outdoors, the owners clearly share that passion and it showed in everything that they do. Thank you Randy, Hollie, and Coach for a wonderful weekend. We are already looking forward to booking this one again!

This property is all about what it has to offer

  • 5 of 5

I was skeptical getting out of the car looking at the property. Walking in is a totally different feel and surprise! Remodeled, very cozy and comfortable. Newly renovated and with great detail and the comforts of home. This is the perfect spot to chill on the river, fish, boat, visit Caddo Lake and surrounding state parks. Talk about a home away from home! This is definitely it and I recommend this riverfront property to anyone trying to get away or wanting to go on a fishing trip. The owner is helpful, respectful, humble and very easy to work with. I caught ten catfish and if you have kids you can catch sunfish and perch left and right under the deck. There is plenty of crappie, bass, and gar as well! I will definitely be back! If you have a jonboat, canoe, or kayak I would bring it! Great way to fish harder to reach areas around the cabin. The back deck is a great way to enjoy a cool evening or an early morning. Fish right off of the deck! 5 rod holders already mounted and ready to use! Great time and great place!

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!
