Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3/4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8/14)

Camp Patasa ('Perch' in Cajun French) is a beautiful non-smoking lakefront home with all the amenities of home in one of the most popular fishing destinations in the world. BASS MASTERS RATED TOLEDO BEND LAKE # 1 IN THE NATION FOR BASS FISHING! You can enjoy the great outdoors or just put your feet up and relax in this very spacious house.

You will enjoy the new pier and seawall, barbeque pit, and outdoor chairs. So grab your binoculars and do a little bird watching while sipping on a hot cup of coffee or your favorite beverage.

Of course don't forget to enjoy the incredible fishing. For the golfer, we are located just minutes from the world class Cypress Bend Marina and Golf Resort. Travel a few miles further to Toledo Town where you can find anything you need from tackle to antiques, as well as groceries and gasoline. The restaurants there serve wonderful breakfast, lunch and supper (dinner) with scrumptious seafood buffets and steaks.

This is a spacious 3/4 bedroom house with a large living area, fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. The main house has three bedrooms and a loft, which sleeps eight. There is also an additional "Bunk Room" which is attached to the main house and sleeps six and is available for an additional fee. In the fall and winter warm those chilly nights and cold feet by the full fireplace in the living room. On site PARKING area can accommodate up to 6 vehicles, or 3 if they have boat trailers attached. Should your group have more than this, arrangements should be made at a local marina to park your trailers.

Should you choose to venture out, a wealth of attractions and things await you. Natchitoches, LA with all of its historic beauty is home to the multiple week, Christmas Lights show which will dazzle you and your family’s holiday outings. Northwestern State University is also located in Natchitoches, but don’t miss the historic town of Many and Fort Jesup on the way there. Venture South about 45 minutes and see Leesville and Fort Polk, the home of our brave and heroic soldiers. Hodges Gardens, for those with a liking to flowers and beautiful landscape is also minutes away. To the North, drive to Zwolle and attend the famous Tamales’ Festival in the fall. The kids can also enjoy swimming at the beaches at Cypress Bend Marina and at the Louisiana Visitors Center at the foot of Pendleton Bridge all within a short distance from Camp Patasa.

Entirely unsatisfactory and very disappointing for numerous reasons, a discredit to VRBO.

  • 1 of 5

We truly cannot understand how so many reviews rated this favorably with 4 or even 5 stars. We can only assume other guests have very low expectations for rental properties on Toledo Bend. The dishwasher never worked ( had to hand wash dishes for our crew of 9 the entire time). Not enough utensils for more than 6 people at a time (even though advertised to accommodate 14 guests). Live roach was found in convection oven. Exposed outdoor water line broke the second day, significantly reducing water pressure inside and creating muddy mess near landing (since it wasn't repaired despite running for the last 2 days of our stay). Broken recliner. Filthy (probably 50 years old) fold-away bed upstairs. There were ugly, tasteless signs scrawled in marker on paper scraps taped above door handle and on fireplace mantle ( "Do not Lock Knob," "Fire place Logs Only"). There is an unreasonable requirement that we provide "3 mil" trash bags for the trash bin (these are not available at local grocery or convenience stores, requiring a special trip out of the way trip to a hardware store to purchase). There was broken glass on the back porch and miscellaneous items of trash strewn throughout the yard. (Our children often play outside on porches and grass barefoot. Therefore this was a serious potential health hazard to them.) Based on what we paid for our 4 night stay as compared to other rentals around the country we have stayed at, we had much higher expectations for basic functioning of appliances and cleanliness. Having conveyed in extensive detail all these concerns described above to the owner while we were still there, we would have expected some repairs and such as the broken dishwasher and busted water line to be addressed immediately since this adversely affected our experience during our four night stay. Based on falling far short of the accommodations advertised, we expected a significant refund, assuming these problems were merely honest mistakes on the part of the owner. We did receive a refund of less than 5%--far less than expected given how profound and extensive nature of our dissatisfaction was with the rental property. We definitely will not stay here again, and cannot recommend it to anyone else. We certainly would not have stayed here had we been aware of even 1/3 of the problems. We sincerely hope other potential renters benefit from our sincere attempt to provide honest oversight and that the owners remedy the defects.

Great place with nice view

We enjoyed our time at the lake. The house has a great view, nice dock and very comfortable accommodations. Very family-friendly with lots of games and books.

Peace and quiet!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for letting my stay at your beautiful cabin last weekend. It was nice to put life on pause and relax to charge your batteries for a few days. It was so peaceful. It was clean and well stocked. It was good to get close to nature again. We hated to leave. We will probably rent it in the future. I would recommend it to anyone that's wants some R&R and wants to reunite with nature again when times were simpler. Thanks again for peaceful weekend.
