There are no bad days at this wonderful lake home. Rest, relax and enjoy the peaceful beauty of this beautiful spot on the lake. Have your breakfast and coffee on the wharf and watch the sun rise, then in the late afternoon bring your coffee to the front porch and watch the sun set. My favorite spot is the master bedroom where you can watch the sunrise from your bed.
For lunch you can fire up the BBQ pit and enjoy a burger by the lake in the swing.After the sun has set you can collect some fire wood and head for the fire pit and enjoy the fire by the lake or you could try a little night fishing on the wharf under the light. You might even take a night time spin in the paddle boat and watch all the lights from the lake.We want you to enjoy everything about our lake home and we will do what ever we can to make your stay the best ever.Our lake front home is only 15 to 20 minutes from the Ouiska Chitto river which has several places you can take canoes out for day trips.You will enjoy the beautiful white sand and clear running water along with the wildlife,you can have a shore lunch,do some fishing,take a dip or just sit back and enjoy the sights. After your river excursion you can continue on for 15 to 20 minutes to the Coushatta Casino Resort and with lots of excitement and plenty of good food and fun, If you want you might even take in a round of golf at Koasati pines golf course.There are 2 more very nice casinos in Lake Charles about 1 hr away. If you like to relax and fish from the bank you can take a trip to the Sunrise Catfish Farm just 10 to 15 minutes away they have poles and bait available with 6 ponds to choose from they also have a small menu and a eating area with ice cream, and if you would like they will clean your fish for you. Just one hour to the north and you will be at Hodges Gardens where you will find some of the most beautiful gardens around this area. Nature trails,cabins,boats,and campgrounds are available, or you can tour in the car if you like.The 225 acre lake and the waterfalls in the garden area make this garden a must see spot for those who love gardens. On your way to Hodges Gardens you might want to stop by and check out the Fort Polk Leesville area the home of our brave soldiers. Looking for a Cajun restaurant Just one hour to the east and you will be in the heart of Cajun country there you will find DI's Cajun Restaurant complete with real Cajun food and a Cajun band with a dance floor built for Cajun dancing, lots of food & fun available there.

If you are looking for a quiet day just grab your pillow and head for the screen porch or the sun room and sit back and watch the herons, loons,and egrets playing around the cypress trees,and you might even see a gator or a pelican if you are lucky,or you could take the paddle boat for a spin. You might even want to pull up a chair and night fish under the light at the end of the wharf.
I have been in rentals since 1984. This is my first vacation rental and I am Learning alot. I have tried to make this home as if I were the one who was on vacation and had plans to stay here. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Brian Hamilton purchased this house in 1992
This home was our family home which we have enjoyed for a long time. We would like to share the special qualities of our home and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Lake view, nice garden like setting, large open floor plan, Fire place, two refrigerators, dishwasher, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, convection oven, boat house, wood shed, fire pit, and lots of porch space in front and back of house.
Upon driving up and walking around both the home and the grounds, we were so impressed with the size, the space and the beauty that surrounded us. We want on a family vacation with my parents, siblings and their significant others and a few children. There was plenty of room to accommodate all of us. We grilled on the pit there several evenings relishing the glorious sunsets over the water. I was in contact with Brian periodically through our week stay there and he was very receptive in ensuring our stay was great. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away and relax and possibly cast a line in the water in attempts to catch. We didn't catch but it was so much fun nonetheless
The home was wonderful you had everything you needed on site. My boys loved the paddle boats and fishing the lake. We went when there were storms going through but the stay was still awesome. You can sit and view the lake from the screened in porch or from the glassed in porch which also is air conditioned. We will definitely do this again next summer
Thank you Brian for the opportunity to stay at your lovely home! The boys loved the boats and the fresh catfish we had after fishing at the catfish farm. Unfortunately the river was too high to camping but that gives us another reason to come back!
we were there my 2 sisters and i may 6th 7th and 8th of 2016. we had a ball the property is well kept up. Brian is a peach to work with, Beautiful quite cul de sac Would recommend it highly and deRidder is a nice little town people are friendly and steamboat bills is a great restaurant. Would definetly go back. Margaritas on the lake in the evening
We were a group of 5 girls looking to get away for a weekend and this was perfect..I only wish it could've been a longer stay! By far this is the cutest house on the street! It was incredibly spacious, more so than you can see from pictures. The 5 of us slept in the main part of the house which has the 2 bedrooms with queen beds (I slept on a couch and was very comfortable there). However, there is an upstairs room that could easily sleep 5 or so others in beds. We spent the majority of our time sitting at the end of the pier, enjoying the gorgeous weather. We also went out on the paddle boats! Even though you know you have neighbors, you easily forget because of the trees which give you privacy. For our first quick meal we ordered carryout pizza from the small convenience store that was only a 5 minute drive across the lake. We drove down to Lake Charles (about an hour away) the 2nd night. The owner was very easy to get in contact with and responded to my questions promptly. We had a fantastic time, and I look forward to coming back with my family sometime!
No Bad Days Getaway is a private, enchanting, everything is taken care of kind of place. The home is very spacious and well maintained both inside and out. The kitchen was very well stocked with appliances, cookware, etc for our stay. The lake is beautiful and the trees in the water add more privacy to the home. The linens and towels were of a high quality and the entire house just made you want to sit down with a book and put your feet up. There is a cute church and pre-civil war cemetery about a mile up the road and it makes for a nice walk from the house should you be so inclined. The city of Deridder is only about 10 minutes up the road.We enjoyed Cecil's, LuLu's Cupcakes, and one of the only sit down Pizza Hut's we've seen in a long while. There is a Wal-Mart for all your shopping located there as well. The only drawback, if you could call it that, is there is hardly any 4G/phone reception in the whole area and the home does not have wifi. Also, the dvd player in the home does not play blu-ray. The only thing the home didn't have that would have made our stay more comfortable would be throw blankets for the couches. I love to sit and read with a hot cup of tea and a blanket. The owner was super friendly, very accommodating, and worked hard to make our stay fantastic. We hope to return in the future. Thanks for a great stay!
