We own 2 acres of partially secluded property on Bayou Manchac. Our place is a genuine Cajun retreat inside and out. Campsites are on the Bayou; great for fishing, relaxing, bird and turtle watching, kayaking, etc. with a boat launch and rope swing. Great for kids 4 and up; very family friendly! We offer age appropriate fishing gear, archery, , etc.. We’re close to Baton Rouge and LSU; also about an hour away from the New Orleans metro area. Authentic Cajun hosts live in a unique A-frame on the property and can point you to swamp tours and seafood markets. We are lifelong locals with lots of knowledge of the area! We can interact with you as much or as little as you’d like. We love to cook and often share Cajun meals with our guests!. Quiet neighborhood for bike riding and walking.

Wow! Maria and Timmie are simply perfect hosts. So warm, so kind, so embracing, and so helpful in every way! Their sweet spot along a little bayou is pure Louisiana vibe and while it feels so quiet and rural, you are still so close to all urban amenities. The “Cooks Experience” they offer is pure Cajun magic! Campfire, music and dancing, jambalaya and joy. And Maria even created the most amazing experiences for us in and around NOLA, too. We cannot praise them enough, recommend them enough, or thank them enough.

Thanks, it was our pleasure! We recommend hosting these two awesome people; they were respectful of our property and time. They embraced our family and had a fun loving attitude. Their creativity and talents were such a blessing to us. We welcomed them as strangers but said goodbye as friends! They are welcome back anytime!!!

We loved our time with Maria and Timmie! The property is beautiful and peaceful at the end of a very nice neighborhood, with the bayou flowing by. We loved swinging on their yard swing right along the water and watching the sky change colors as the sun set. So very peaceful and Maria and Timmie could not be more hospitable. We made a shrimp boil together and she taught us how to make gumbo, and we just loved them. Thank you!

This was an absolutely incredible experience. Maria and Timmie have been such great communicators and they’re hospitality is unmatched. The location was perfect for our huge RV and full water and electric hook ups were available. We woke to an amazing view of the foggy bayou. This place is Cajun paradise! Highly recommended to all.
