About Carolyn Prator

My family loved the cabin on the lake but my two children have moved to other areas and we no longer use it often. So put Better Knott on rental market so others could have a great family experience at the Lake. I live in Shreveport on a lake with boating so don't get down there often. But love the secluded nature and steep hills on the lake. It is hard to believe this is Louisiana!

Carolyn Prator purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Carolyn Prator chose Toledo Bend

My son is an avid fisherman who now fishes on the FLW trail. We bought our cabin because of the outstanding fishing on Toledo and the midlake location where he could fish many tournaments. Also where much of the lake is not good for skiing or swimming because of the stumps, Lanan Bay (where Better Knott is located) always has deep water for both. But also very large bay with very limited boat traffic. An ideal spot.

What makes this cabin unique

Sitting in one of the rockers or the recliners with coffee or a sunset cocktail is a peaceful and relaxing experience. A great place for family memories.

A very good Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable. The three bedrooms gave every one their own space. The boat dock with lift worked really well, as so did the cleaning table. The location was excellent. Everything you need is very close, good food, grocery store, gas and tackle. We had a great time. Thanks very much.

Cozy, comfortable and roomy lake house

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, nicely decorated with a great covered porch. Intermittent showers proved no problem with covered porch and boat house. Being covered allowed us to take an afternoon cookout with ribs, duck and deer sausage and pork jambalaya under the roof without any problem. Saved the day. Nice boat shed w lift. Kids swam, adults sat around boat shed and chatted. Roof provided cover when the showers would come. My wife and adult kids really enjoyed it. Ms. Prator, your information was spot on and a great help. We will be calling you again.

Wonderful place on the lake

  • 5 of 5

The house has all the amenities one could ask for a comfortable stay. We used only the master bedroom on the main floor of the house which has a very nice king-sized bed and plenty of room. The kitchen and living area were also spacious and well furnished. We especially enjoyed the wonderful deck while sitting in the rocking chairs. We also sat on the dock every evening to watch the sunsets.The house is in woods on a dead end street so it was very quiet. The gardenias were blooming which was a treat.

The house is located close enough to really good restaurants on highway 6 and we ate out for several meals.

We had a marvelous time and hope to be back.

Better Knot - a great getaway for anyone

  • 5 of 5

Four of us traveled to Toledo Bend to crappie fish with Living the Dream (LTD) Fishing Guides. We were lucky to find this lodging on VRBO. It was just over 3 miles and 5 minutes to our meet location each day. You won't be disappointed at this secluded location. And what a view of the lake. Was nice to have a separate bathroom with each bedroom. All was very clean and comfortable. Also a well supplied kitchen. The deck out back and the separate grilling deck were both really nice. Ms. Carolyn gave us lots of information on the surrounding area and answered all questions prior to our trip. Whether your doing a fishing trip like us or just looking for a quite weekend getaway, Better Knot is the place for you. We look forward to coming back next year.

Perfect for a long weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Better Knott! The location was quiet and secluded in an area of the lake that was great for fishing and tubing! We would definitely recommend staying here if you want to relax and/or spend a lot of time on the lake.

Location

Have a fish fry with bass, crappie, or catfish caught off the lighted dock, which also has a boat lift. Water skiing, boating and swimming are all great also from the pier.

Wooded rural roads are great for walking with abundant wildlife. For golfing, hiking trails, beach and restaurant, Cypress Bend State Park is minutes away. Cabin location is centrally located on lake close to the San Miguel and Cypress Bend launches, where many fishing tournaments occur.

Charming Natchitoches with antique shops on its brick streets on the Cane River is a short drive, and known for its spectacular Christmas lights.
