Bass Hollow - A Rustic Cabin on Toledo Bend

Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Rustic camp on Toledo Bend between San Miguel and LaNan Bay. Makes a perfect couple's getaway. Living Room, Kitchen, 2 Bedrooms & 1 Bath. Each bedroom has a queen bed. Very peaceful and quiet. Sit on the front porch and enjoy the view. We have a large wooded lot with lots of flowering trees and shrubs, a bird watcher's paradise. Pets are welcome. No smoking indoors, please.

You can enjoy boating and fishing right from the front yard. Please note this is not a constant level lake. During periods of little or no rain, the lake waters may recede substantially. You can launch your boat down to lake level 169.4. You can access the cove down to lake level 168. The cabin is approximately 100 feet off of the water.

Just minutes from state historic sites, and several resorts offering golf. (Cypress Bend, Emerald Hills, Hodges Gardens, Fort Jessup).

Approximately 45 minutes from Natchitoches, the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana Purchase Territory (1714). Unique architecture and scenic beauty, Cane River Lake meanders through the center of the city, Landmarks - Melrose Plantation and Kate Chopin Home, Magnolia and Beau Fort Plantations capture the imagination of its historic past.

Locations throughout the city where Steel Magnolias was filmed. Trolley and boat rides, a National Fish Hatchery and Aquarium, Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, museums, art galleries, theaters, Fort St. Jean Baptiste - the list of things to see and do is endless! Five major festivals culminate with the annual Christmas Festival of Lights.

Not what we expected

  • 1 of 5

I know this is an old cabin in the woods, but it should not smell like an old cabin in the woods that nobody has lived in in 50 years. It was in the 90's outside and 89 degrees on the inside. We laid in bed sweating. If it is that hot outside, they could turn the air on before you get there. You will be walking through spider webs inside and out. I had mouse turds in the corner of the master bedroom. I stayed sick the entire time we were there. I am and grew up in the country and none of our places ever smelled like that. You will find and kill spiders inside especially in the bathroom daily. I pray that when the hot water heater goes through the floor, nobody is in the bathroom. PVC pipe going to a hot water heater?????? When one of those cracks or breaks, someone is going to get burned bad!!!!! just to pull in, trees are dragging down both sides of my truck. I was there to watch my son fish for $20,000 scholarship, instead I was sick the whole time. I personally would not recommend this place. We went into town to look for another place, but after adding it up, it would cost us too much for the second place. The smell of the place will make you sick, that is why they had air fresheners in every room. This place needs some work to be worth the money they are asking.

Great little cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

It's quaint, the floors aren't level, the kitchen is basic (no dishwasher, small preparation space), but it's really comfortable and welcoming and feels like a family place. The surrounding grounds are spacious and awesome. It's perfect for campfires, there's a great little charcoal grill, there's even a flat bottomed boat to go fishing in. We *loved* it and will almost certainly be back.

We have a boat launch on the property, however the launch is steep. There are several other launches in the area.
