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.

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.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We were very blessed to find this property. We have rented other properties in Toledo Bend and this one one was by far the best. The view was awesome along with the furniture that allowed us to sit outside and enjoy it. The house was very clean and so roomy. The covered boat dock was also great. We hope to go back soon. Thank you Carolyn!!

Beautiful, quiet property on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 14-year old son and I stayed 12 nights at this property. Carolyn Prator was great to work with and responded very promptly to questions about our reservation, amenities, etc. She also contacted us after our stay to see if we had any recommendations for improvements or repairs to the property.

The house and amenities were accurately described in the listing. The house and property were clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The view of the lake through the trees was beautiful and I never tired of it during our entire stay. The porch was the best part and it included 4 rockers, 2 lounge chairs, and a picnic table. There was still plenty of room and did not feel crowded. We enjoyed sunrises with coffee, sunsets with a glass of wine, plus 2 rain showers from this porch.

We wanted a place to get away from the city, relax and enjoy our family time together. This property fit the bill perfectly and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Awesome lake house with lots of shade

  • 5 of 5

The property is an older property, BUT was awesome. The location is the best-with all the shaded trees, overlooking the lake. The pictures do not due it justice. A 3 level home with all the comforts! Everything was provided but the food, though we did leave with several catfish. We will definitely return to this property.

The house a wonderful cabin,perfect for a lakeside vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My family has thoroughly enjoyed vacationing in this cabin. It is a perfect setup for my family. The way the floor plan works gives ample room for each person without being crowded. Some of us are adding an extra day.

It supplied everything we need. It was clean when we arrived.

And working with the owner has been good . She is so easy to work with.

Thanks for a great stay. We all want to come back.

We absolutely loved our time at this beautiful property! It was just what we were looking for...secluded, quiet, cozy and gorgeous views of the lake! The house was much more than we expected, 3 levels and all so cozy and comfortable. The deck overlooking the boat dock and the lake was just the most perfect place for us to relax. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of the canoe, but hopefully we will next time! If we weren't sitting on the deck, we were down at the boat dock throwing in a few baits to try to catch some fish or just sitting out there and watching the sun go down.

The house had everything we needed, the bed in the master bedroom was super comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was great! We cooked on the charcoal grill each night that we didn't go eat somewhere else and it was perfect weather to sit out on the deck at the picnic table to eat our dinner.

We did drive into "town" to eat a couple of meals and really enjoyed the food we found (wish I could remember the names of the places so I could tell you!).

The house was the perfect distance from the event we were here for (Elite Bassmaster Tournament), only took us about 10 minutes to get to the marina where the boats were launching.

All in all, I highly recommend this beautiful house and all it has to enjoy! We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Toledo Bend! Thank you, Carolyn!

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.
