Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Discover the unique experience and rustic charm of a cabin and pond setting in the beautiful piney woods of Beaver Creek, Louisiana. The natural surroundings create the perfect setting for a family getaway, offering an adventure with nature that everyone will remember for a lifetime.

The cabin and pond are located on the 130 acre Guillory Farm in a small community called Beaver Creek in South Central Louisiana in Evangeline Parish. This area of Louisiana looks similar to East Texas with tall stately pine trees and dogwood and redbud trees growing into the landscape.

The appeal of the cedar boarded Colorado-styled cabin begins with a front porch with a swing, and a huge wood deck which features a swing and comfortable rocking chairs, and a spectacular view of the four acre fishing pond and natural surroundings. The cabin includes new air conditioning and heating systems for the comfort of all guests. The main bedroom features one queen bed and one double bed, while a smaller bedroom has a bunk bed, ideal for the younger family members (you have to walk through the main bedroom to get to the bunk room). In addition, the comfortable sofa in the living area easily converts to another queen bed. A guest can enjoy the extra large lounge chairs while watching a variety of videos on the flat screen television. The kitchen offers a full sized stove, oven and microwave. Guests are reminded that fish frying and crawfish boiling is restricted to the outdoor area. Smoking inside the cabin is strictly prohibited.

The pond has been generously stocked with black bass, copper nose blue gill fingerlings and redear/shellcracker (referred to as chinquapin in Louisiana). The blue gills are automatically fed multiple times daily utilizing Purina Aqua Max high protein fish food, while the black bass diet consists of small blue gill, fat head minnows and crawfish. As of 2010, Hybrid Stripped Bass have been added to the pond for fishing enjoyment and are “catch and release” only. This bass do not reproduce so it is imperative that they be released back in to the pond.

Peaceful and magical place, quality family time

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 days in this property with my family and I enjoyed it. Nice cabin right next to the forest, in the middle of nature. Great sunrises, I was lucky enough to see a deer running around 7am. We used the grill every night for BBQ and cooked meat and seafood. I had quality family time and great conversations since there's no wifi at all. There's a Walmart only 8miles away for groceries. We were not able to use the laundry room because something was wrong with the locks and we've noticed a lot of spiders web by the windows in the bedroom but other than that I would definitely recommended this place to every animals and nature lovers. Great communication with owner.

relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place never lets us down. My husband and I have been going here for 5 years and we love it! Cabin is always clean and well stocked with all that you need for cooking and enjoying your time there. Owners are starting to fix up the inside and looks really great. Fish were not biting like they usually are but we still had fun trying. Spent our afternoons sitting on the deck cooking on the pit. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway this is definitely the place to go.

WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend of fishing and relaxing out at the cabin! Very clean and well maintained. Perfect for a family of 4, to just get away for a weekend. We fished and had our kayak out on the water. Had a few rain showers, which were nice because it cooled it off some. We spent the evenings playing cards on the screened in porch and laughing our butts off :)

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend!! We look forward to our next trip!!!!
