Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Pierre Part - Pierre Part Cajun Retreat #2

A Cajun Cabin with a beautiful waterfront view

Beautiful custom-built Cajun Cabin, with a fully-equipped kitchen, living room and full bath. Cabin interior is rustic and is constructed of reclaimed virgin cypress and pine.

The cabin has a queen-size bed in the master bedroom and two twin-size beds in the second bedroom, along with a sofa & love seat in the living room. The bathroom has a bathtub/shower combination.

The cabin has a large TV in the living room and is equipped with WiFi and DirectTV.

The cabin is built on property right off Pierre Part Bay. There is a large covered dock where you can fish or tie up your boat. There is a boat ramp within walking distance where you can launch your boat to either fish or to just explore the beautiful waterways surrounding Pierre Part, including Lake Verret and Belle River.

You may even catch a glimpse of the stars of Swamp People during your stay! Rainbow Inn, a frequent filming location for the show, is right across the Bay from the cabin and is in walking distance.

The cabin is about a one-hour drive from Louisiana's Capital City of Baton Rouge and about 1.5 hour drive to historic New Orleans. The Houmas House plantation home is 29 miles from the cabin, and Oak Alley plantation home is about 30 miles from the cabin.

Numerous opportunities for adventure may be available, depending on the season. These may include crawfishing, crabbing, frogging, fresh-water fishing, hoop net fishing and tours of the Atchafalaya Basin. Limited alligator hunts may be available during alligator season at an additional expense. Experience a true Cajun lifestyle.

About Marilyn Lambert

We live in South Louisiana and absolutely love it! We are married and have three children, ages 25, 23 and 19. In the short time since we built our cabins, we have already met so many interesting people from as far away as Minnesota and Alberta, Canada. We are looking forward to meeting many more and can't wait to help you enjoy and explore our beautiful state.

Why Marilyn Lambert chose Louisiana

We love South Louisiana, because our way of life is very unique. Within a very short driving distance, there are so many places to see and adventures to experience. Louisiana is often referred to as 'Sportsman's Paradise.' This is so true!

The nearby Atchafalaya Basin is the nation's largest river swamp, containing almost one million acres of America's most significant bottomland hardwoods, swamps, bayous, and backwater lakes.

When you launch your boat into Pierre Part Bay, you will have access to endless waterways, including Lake Verret and Belle River. Bring your own fishing gear to experience some of the best fresh-water fishing in the country. If you are a bass fisherman, you can access bass-fishing paradise through Bayou Boeuf, Flat Lake, Lake Verret, Six Mile Lake, Lower Atchafalaya River, Bayou Long, Duck Lake and many others.

Numerous day trips are available including plantation tours of historic River Road Plantations, the Louisiana Capitol City of Baton Rouge, the French Quarter, the National World War II Museum, Audubon Zoo, the Aquarium of the Americas all located in historic and fun-filled New Orleans.

Perfect annual Louisiana trip

  • 5 of 5

Eddie and Marilyn's Cajun cabin is beyond perfect. It smells so good when you walk in - very clean - and cozy. Eddie and Miss Lori met us at the cabin to get us settled and were more than welcoming and gave of great recommendations. Sunday Eddie and Lori invited us out on Lake Verret to check lines and we caught a 20 lbs blue catfish. As if that wasn't enough they invited us to their houseboat to fry the fish up and have a Cajun meal. This family is the definition of southern hospitality. Will continue to stay at the little jewel again and again!

Our June stay at Big Cajun---OUTSTANDING

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with two friends, stayed at Big Cajun for a couple of nights last week as we toured the Louisiana waterways on the Belle River and Lake Verret. The accommodations at Big Cajun were way above and beyond our expectations and the hospitality offered by the owners was fantastic. The cabin was extremely clean and comfortable and well equipped for guests. The decor and construction is a great story in its' own right. We had another couple of friends that stayed in Little Cajun at the same time and their experience was equal to ours.

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the amenities of Sportsman's Paradise in Southern Louisiana, Big Cajun and Little Cajun are the way to go. Don't forget to visit the Driftwood Man at the end of the street and enjoy a walk through Pierre Part Store- It has everything from soup to nuts and that is not an exaggeration!

Great Cabin and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

As a parent of two older teens, finding a place to stay that is fun for them and relaxing for us at the same time can be a monumental challenge! However, the 'Big Cajun Cabin" was just such a place. The teens enjoyed fishing from the dock, boiling crawfish, and exploring south Louisiana. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs and on the dock swing relaxing. My husband enjoyed catching a mess of catfish from the dock as well! The cabin has every accomodation you require and is super clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable. The host's southern hospitatility is beyond compare! They actually caught crawfish the morning of our arrival and boiled them for us that evening! We enjoyed meeting all the neighbors who came to visit and eat crawfish as well. They all made us feel right at home. We highly recommend the Big Cajun Cabin or the smaller cabin they also own located behind the Big Cajun Cabin.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We purposefully chose a place where we could relax, fish and hang out with my son who is stationed in FT. Polk. Pierre Part is a small town with a friendly vibe and includes one major grocery/odds and ends/store. The VRBO house has a covered porch and across the street they have a dock w/a picnic table where you can enjoy watching boats or fish. The kitchen was functional, beds were comfortable and the home was well kept and super clean. You can tell the owners (Marilyn and Eddie) have pride in their home from the reclaimed wood they used on their beautiful walls to the design of the home. The owners were easy to communicate with and were able to help guide us on where to go, eat and visit. They really were an added bonus to our trip (truly) and we're very grateful that they were our host.

If you want to get out of the rat race, slow down, have a comfortable home-base, do a few tours, fish...try out Marilyn and Eddie's property on S. Bay Rd.

Advice: Look into going along for an alligator hunt which I think the owner can organize. Eat beignets. Try alligator sausage. Walk down South Bay Road and check out the statues made with moss and wood (watch Swamp People before you go ( I knew nothing about them before our trip)). Fish off the dock. Go on a swamp tour. AND check out Bourbon Street in New Orleans.

PERFECT! Clean! Warm & Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin looks exactly like the photos. It is so warm and cozy - not to mention clean and well kept. The owners were easy to reach for booking and questions and the property was well-maintained. It was my sons 16th birthday and they were so helpful with questions that I had about the area! I would highly recommend and we will return for a summer stay! Loved it! The Kaufman Family
