Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Discover the unique experience and rustic charm of a cabin and pond setting in the beautiful piney woods of Beaver Creek, Louisiana. The natural surroundings create the perfect setting for a family getaway, offering an adventure with nature that everyone will remember for a lifetime.

The cabin and pond are located on the 130 acre Guillory Farm in a small community called Beaver Creek in South Central Louisiana in Evangeline Parish. This area of Louisiana looks similar to East Texas with tall stately pine trees and dogwood and redbud trees growing into the landscape.

The appeal of the cedar boarded Colorado-styled cabin begins with a front porch with a swing, and a huge wood deck which features a swing and comfortable rocking chairs, and a spectacular view of the four acre fishing pond and natural surroundings. The cabin includes new air conditioning and heating systems for the comfort of all guests. The main bedroom features one queen bed and one double bed, while a smaller bedroom has a bunk bed, ideal for the younger family members (you have to walk through the main bedroom to get to the bunk room). In addition, the comfortable sofa in the living area easily converts to another queen bed. A guest can enjoy the extra large lounge chairs while watching a variety of videos on the flat screen television. The kitchen offers a full sized stove, oven and microwave. Guests are reminded that fish frying and crawfish boiling is restricted to the outdoor area. Smoking inside the cabin is strictly prohibited.

The pond has been generously stocked with black bass, copper nose blue gill fingerlings and redear/shellcracker (referred to as chinquapin in Louisiana). The blue gills are automatically fed multiple times daily utilizing Purina Aqua Max high protein fish food, while the black bass diet consists of small blue gill, fat head minnows and crawfish. As of 2010, Hybrid Stripped Bass have been added to the pond for fishing enjoyment and are “catch and release” only. This bass do not reproduce so it is imperative that they be released back in to the pond.

Very peaceful and homey cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was so nice for the relaxing weekend we had while staying. The cabin is roomy and the property is beautiful. The beds were comfy and nicely made with attractive and clean linens. The cabin is decorated attractively. The kitchen is a nice size for cooking and we liked the way the chairs are set up around the peninsula. Plenty of seating for all. We really enjoyed the cozy fire in the wood stove in the evening. The rowboat was enjoyed by all using a stick to push it around the lake as there are no paddles. Also the kids enjoyed fishing in the lake from the boat and from the water's edge. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay a while.

Wonderful and Peaceful.

  • 3 of 5

The lake and the grounds were wonderful. The area was so peaceful. It looked like it was right out of a magazine. Just what I needed after the recent death of my parents and the flood of 2016. My friend and I had a great time.

There were only a couple things that I think could have made it a more perfect trip. When we opened up the house it was stale and smelled like it had been closed up for quit a while. The second bedroom was more like a closet. There was no windows in that room and it smelled stale also. The price was a little above what it should be for the condition of the house.

Overall we had a great time. The fire pit was enjoyed. Did not catch but a couple of fish. The feeder would go off a couple times a day and I do not think the fish were hungry enough to catch because of that .We would like to come back again one day. This is the great place to get away from it all.

Thanks,

Kriss P.
