About Lynn & Warren Doussan

The New Getaway

In 1975 our family purchased a beautiful waterfront lot along a slip of Bayou Johnson. We built a summer home for our family. Within months a friend of ours asked to rent our home for their vacation. That we did. From that day, we began purchasing property for sale from our neighbors & other sources. In 1991 after our 4 children graduated from college, we built our home on the resort site. By 2005 the Getaway had 10 water front vacation homes for rent. Hurricane Katrina (2005) blew away 4 homes & left us with 6 homes to completely rebuild. By 2008 we completed the above better than before. The Getaway purchased 1 1/2 acres along Bayou Johnson & developed a park (Pelican Park Wildlife Conservatory) for our guests. In 2010 we changed the name to The New Getaway and the resort rests on 8 acres of beautiful water front property. Our staff consists of the following: Mr. Dan Parker - General Manager, Angie Daniels Reservation Specialist, 3 part time builders. We are very proud of our staff & resort. We thank God for our Success.

Lynn & Warren Doussan purchased this house in 1975

Relaxation Location

  • 3 of 5

This is the most serene location we have stayed at - very peaceful and beautiful. The kids had a blast with the pools and mini golf. The fishing was not as great as we would have liked, but, again, it was a relaxing vacay and that was our goal. We did spot one little gator who appeared to have been fed by humans at some point, given his reactions to a fishing cast and swimming fairly close up to us. Not a great thing with kids running around, but they were excited for the spotting. Our only complaint was the mattresses, as they were not comfy at all. All in all, fun vacation with many day trip options available since you were centrally located between New Orleans to Gulf Shores.

Property house and the owners were wonderful! VRBO not to impressed

  • 4 of 5

The owners are fun people to talk to. The house has plenty of areas to hang out rooms are great, covered parking canoes kayaks a little park and even nice benches to go fishing. Wonderful secret place. VRBO not impressed with, it has almost been a month and no return on deposit or reason why. We left the house as instructed and very clean. The extra service charge, the 150 for a dog which we had no dog. We will not use VRBO again.

Family reunion vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented out all for houses for a family reunion.

This place did not disappoint! The houses were so clean and maintained.

There was so much to do here, they had canoes, kayaks, piers to fish, decks to grill.

Words cannot describe how beautiful this place is. Working with Tanya on this vacation

was a blessing, she was so helpful. We look forward to seeing this hidden gem again!

Great for our Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We rented two houses for our family reunion. We were 14 people and a small dog. The accomodations were comfortable, and everyone had enough room. Since we booked two houses next door to each other, we had a pool to ourselves. The elderly family members enjoyed the views from the porch and could watch the little ones playing in the yard, playing putt-putt or basketball across the street, or in the pool. There is plenty to do on the property. I especially enjoyed going for early morning rides in the kayak and canoes. The scenery on the bayou was lovely. (Boats, paddles and life jackets are provided). There is also a lot to do on the Gulf Coast (beaches, water parks, antique shopping, excursions) so we were always entertained. It was nice to grill outside, Although the kitchens were well equipped, the Lodge did not have a dishwasher. (Luckily there were enough of us to chip in so the dishes always got done quickly). Grilling outside on the shady porches with a view of the bayou was a definite highlight. There were also lots of good dining options nearby from down-home seafood places to more elegant dining on the beach.

The owners made sure we had everything we needed, and were friendly and helpful. We'd definitely recommend this for larger get-togethers!
