Well equipped and roomy house on the water. The back deck is fabulous to enjoy the sunset. The location is convenient to many activities or if you want a quiet getaway, it's a great spot. The owner was very great.

Relaxing and Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My family stayed for 3 nights and this camp is very well equipped with everything you need and very clean. We fished every day in the lake and watched amazing sunrises and sunsets. I don't think I have ever enjoyed myself anywhere as much as here and the rest of the family had the same feeling. We fished off the dock and watched the sunset every evening. Just a peaceful easy feeling :)! The owner was very responsive and you can tell he is proud of his camp and wants to be sure his guests are happy with the accommodations and enjoy their stay. The marina is very close and easy to navigate and also friendly - so bring your boat! We will certainly be back! Thank you for a very memorable vacation.

We rented this property for a week while exhibiting at the convention center in New Orleans. This location makes it easy to be in New Orleans in less than 30 minutes so you can enjoy the city and go back to a much more relaxing environment. Upon arrival we found the property to be in pristine condition. It is such a cheery house. The colors and decor are inviting and fun. The home was spotless and well stocked. The beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were well appointed and CLEAN! The living room furniture was very comfy, so much in fact my husband wants to find a chair just like the one in the living room.

This was exactly what we needed. While here we were able to enjoy the beautiful Louisiana sunrises and sunsets from the balcony. My family loves to fish and we were able to fish and crab. It was so nice to come back after a long day at convention and relax in these conditions. The neighbors were friendly and welcoming. There was a paddle boat, fishing rods and crab traps available (at no extra cost) to us and all were in great condition. Southern hospitality at its best. The host was attentive, quick to answer any questions, and was genuinely happy to have us in his home.

I can, without hesitation, recommend this property to anyone. If I could give 10 stars I would. I've rented properties all over the country because of our work and this one is a gem. Rent here! You will have a ball!

Perfect Vacation House!

We stayed at The Crab Trap for my husband's 30th Birthday. The view was great and sunsets were wonderful on the back deck. We enjoyed fishing and crabbing all week. The house was neat, clean, and perfectly decorated to be a Sportsman's Paradise!

We will definitely be traveling to The Crab Trap again!

Really enjoyed our stay at the Crab Trap. We only stayed two nights but I wish we could've stayed longer. The cabin is very nicely furnished and the rooms and nice and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked so any fish or crabs you catch you'll have no problem cooking on site. The caught several catfish off the dock as well as crabs in the traps provided. The owner was quick to respond to text messages and was helpful with advice on where to launch our boat. The neighbor was nice as well... Gave us some tips on where to go out to eat. We'll be back!
