Guestbook comments from the owner

The lodge accommodations were very nice lots of room, and it's in a good location. A layed back atmosphere that feels like home . My cousin is a quadriplegic with some special needs that our hosts went out of their way to help us with. No where can you find such good people who will make sure your needs are met. We feel we were blessed to find the lodge. This was the first time we tried airbnb and all I can say is if every host are as great as this experience was then I'm sold. Not only did we enjoy our stay but we made some good friends. You can't go wrong staying at this lodge!

Family came together for our yearly reunion. We had a great time. Always on the lookout for an alligator but never saw one. Billy and Karen were great hosts. Whenever we needed anything they were right there for us. Would recommend lodge as it fits a large family with the 5 bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Our Lodge is a great place for Reunions, Retreats, Hunters and Fishermen. We have 5 bedrooms ( 9 Beds ) and 4 baths, firepit, game cleaning station, 2 BBQ Grills, and a crawfish Boiling setup! We enjoy our guests but still give them privacy by checking on them during their stay. Our last guests were a pleasure to host. They stayed 3 days for their mini reunion. We hope that they will be back someday. They were very gracious when the clothes washer died which we promptly replaced at their convenience. I am so disappointed that they did not see an alligator maybe next time!

Spacious and beautiful lodge on a picturesque bayou with many amenities

  • 5 of 5

I so enjoyed our weekend at the lodge - we wanted for absolutely nothing! From the comfy and shaded Adirondack chairs on the front deck to the idyllic porch swing in the back that overlooks the bayou - this spacious property provides everything - privacy, a great room that promotes visiting and family time, an open floor plan and lots of outside space for being barefoot on the cushy and plush lawn.

Awesome "Camping" Spot

  • 5 of 5

If you love to camp in style and love to fish or hunt woodcock you absolutely have got to check this place out !!! Very clean and private..... Lots of birds and squirrels to watch on the bayou.... just minutes away from the boat launch and great fishing and skiing.... Lots of room for couples or families...... very quiet atmosphere and comfortable surroundings. The owners are super nice as well !!! Very accommodating and fun! The lodge has all the comforts of home including a washer and dryer !! It is hands down nicer and more fun that staying in a hotel. Only 30 miles from Natchez MS and very close to 3 lakes..... You will love it !!!
