About the property

This is a 3/br 2/bath property sitting on 0.5 acres overlooking the beautiful Little River near the Spring Bayou Wildlife Management Area. The property has a fishing dock and ample parking for vehicles and boats. If you are looking for a quiet getaway with plenty of good fishing, this place will not disappoint. There are tons of great restaurants nearby and the Paragon Casino is only ten minutes away! Note: The property is located off the beaten path and there are gravel roads on the way. While these gravel roads are well maintained, your vehicle may get a bit dusty or muddy, depending on the weather.

We expect our guests to behave with the civility and trustworthiness of a family friend. Sorry, no smoking. House is not child-proofed! Parents agree to mind their children vigilantly inside (art, antiques, family heirlooms abound!) and outdoors (there are pets & domesticated animals, snakes, stinging insects, and assorted other wild critters out here in the country!).

About Jason Poret

My name is Jason. I grew up in Avoyelles Parish, fishing and hunting in and around the Spring Bayou area. Beginning with my grandfather, my family has owned a camp in this area and have kept the tradition going. I currently live in South Louisiana but visit "home" often.

Jason Poret purchased this cabin in 2011

Perfect for a Louisiana outdoor adventure

  • 5 of 5

Our primary objective was to find a spot off the beaten path to fish and explore the Louisiana bayous by boat, and that was exactly what we found. From this house, you have access to hundreds of miles of beautiful cypress lined rivers and bayous, and then park your boat directly in front of a very clean and well maintained home. We particularly enjoyed relaxing around the fire pit at night and fishing from the pier. The house had everything we needed for a group of 7 and could not have asked for a more accommodating owner. Thank you for sharing this hidden treasure!

Cozy home, beautiful countryside!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was comfortable and enjoyable. The property is cozy and clean. The owner made himself available to us promptly. The Spring Bayou Wildlife Management Area adjacent to the property is a great place to visit, really quite beautiful. We kayaked. I imagine that it is great for fishing. I highly recommend making your getaway to this destination! Our thanks to the owner for a relaxing stay.

Idyllic spot on the bayou

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable, well-equipped home from home for our trip to Marksville. Jason was always prompt to answer our questions. We were a party of three adults and two older teenagers and it worked perfectly for us. Our only regret was that we didn't get enough time to sit back and enjoy nature as much as we would have liked. We hope to come back soon.

Wonderful peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house and in Louisiana. This was a great location for nearby birding destinations,

and the river behind the house had lots of nice sites and sounds. Very peaceful there any time of the day.

The owner was very nice and ready to help. As we have found in the past, the people in La. are very friendly and helpful.. Try the Back Porch Restaurant in town if you like catfish.
