About Gaynell Leonard

My family grew up spending weekends and summers at another summer home in this area (Near Hwy 11 bridge). Great times and memories. Their was always something to do for the kids - crabbing, fishing, swimming, boating and skiing. The adults can just sit back, relax and enjoy the breeze and watch the sunset. Our original summer home was destroyed by a Hurricane in 2002 and after years of searching we found this house in 2010. Let new memories continue for your family as they have for ours.

Gaynell Leonard purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

This property is not on a canal or inlet, its on the lake itself. The view is incredible, the breeze and fresh air are second to none. We have 380 foot pier that extends over Lake Pontchartrain and has a boat deck on the end of it. Great for fishing, crabbing, swimming, boating or whatever your passion may be.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place for a guy's weekend on the water. Plenty of room for us to sleep and hangout. We rarely left the house because we had everything we needed and enjoyed pulling chairs out to the dock and watching the sunset over the lake every night. Will definitely come back.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a break from the stresses of everyday life, THIS IS IT!!! The camp is within a mile of a grocery store so we were able to easily get our supplies. The crabbing was the highlight of the weekend. The camp had crab traps/nets available. My kids really enjoyed the fishing as well. The evenings were peaceful on the swing under the camp, sunset was perfect! We boiled seafood and truly enjoyed our time here.(We are from Gretna, La) The owners were awesome to deal with, we will definitely be back, and soon!!!!!

Great Fishing Camp

  • 5 of 5

This property on the lake had everything a fishing camp should have and the location was located close to everything. The sunsets on the lake were amazing! The camp is fully stocked with all the basics and the owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.

Mardi Gras vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six, we rented this house for Mardi Gras 2014 and we had a fantastic time. The property was like everything pictured. We had six adults here and still had plenty of room.

The home itself has so much to offer. There is a long pier great for fishing and crabbing. There is a little sanded beach area, great for kids. And a screened in patio to enjoy.

Over all, it for our needs perfectly. We left already wanting to plan a return trip. This would be a marvelous summer vacation spot!
