About Brooke Andry

Growing up in St. Bernard Parish in southeast Louisiana, I loved being on the water as I grew up near the Mississippi River. Starting as a teenager, I spent a lot of time fishing in the Louisiana marshes with my father & uncle. After graduating from the University of Miami, in South Florida, I returned to New Orleans be close to my family & friends. I reclaimed my place on the boat with my father & uncle and began fishing with them on the weekends. Professionally, I began renovating residential properties in the metro area. Several years after college, I decided I wanted to go to law school so I could join the family law firm. I attended & graduated from Tulane University's School of Law. I practiced law passionately with my father & brothers in the field of civil litigation. While practicing law, I continued to renovate properties and obtained a general contractor's license from the State. After approximately 8 years, I decided to pursue construction full-time & minimized my case load. Then Hurricane Katrina hit southeast Louisiana. I returned to the New Orleans area within 10 days of the devastation, prepared to work. I employed multiple crews & we gutted and cleaned out people's life-long homes & properties, including my own. Just months as Katrina while working in Plaquemines Parish, which was one of the hardest hit areas by Katrina, I realized there was no lodging accommodations so I bought about 8 acres next to the Mississippi River, cleared it, and renovated the property which came to be known as The Venice Palms Lodge, which is now a world-class premiere lodge in Louisiana.

Brooke Andry purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Brooke Andry chose USA

I love to fish! Venice is the world's best fishing spot.

What makes this lodge unique

I enjoy spending time with my chickens that live on the property. I also am exciting about the naval orange and satsuma orchard we planted last year.

The best choice in Venice for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Venice Palms Lodge for our annual Guy's Weekend fishing weekend, and we sure are glad we did.

The lodge is the ultimate lodging for a large group of fisherman. Between the poker tables, large bar, spacious living room, and great decorations (fishing photos, hunting trophies) we felt right at home.

The property is very nice, as Venice goes, and we enjoyed a little hike up to the levee to see the Big River and take in the sights. The huge lawn offered plenty of room for our annual wiffle ball game.

The lodge is clean and well equipped. We cooked many meals in the kitchen and it was equipped with everything we needed.

We did a lot of research, and I think I can safely say that if you have a large group, there is no better option in Venice than the Venice Palms Lodge.

Thank you Brooke for the use of your lodge and the great hospitality!

We had a great time over the weekend. Every one of the staff was very hospitable and pleasant to be around. You have a real nice house there. We spent most of the time at the bar talking with Felix. Good times. Everyone was able to pull in a nice size fish which was the most important thing. I would definitely recommend your accommodations for future get-aways.
