About Linda Hoagland

Morris and Linda are current residents of Lafayette Louisiana. Morris grew up in Louisville Kentucky and attended the University of Louisville where he received a Master of Chemical Engineering. Linda grew up in Huron Ohio, and is a graduate of University of Toledo and University of Michigan. She is a retired social worker, and Morris works on projects improving the environment. They have just returned from the USA after working abroad for 14 years.

Linda Hoagland purchased this house boat in 2013

Why Linda Hoagland chose Morgan City

The Louisiana bayous include some of the most gorgeous scenery that this country offers. The wildlife is especially interesting, with some spectacular bird watching opportunities. All along the bayou, Spanish moss drapes old cypress trees, bald eagles drift overhead, and herons stalk their prey on the swampy shores next to you. Sit on the top deck of the houseboat and watch the swamp drift by. Throw in a fishing line and catch dinner! At night relax with a drink at the wet bar and hot tub on the upper deck, and when you tire of stargazing, retreat to the living room with its TV and choices of DVDs, books and board games. A full kitchen invites you to try your hand at Cajun cooking, or if you want to have a real down-home meal, try the delicious home-cooked food at some area restaurants. Internet is wireless and free.

What makes this house boat unique

Weekends are especially fun here! 4 miles down the road from the Summertime, Gros Marina has free live music on weekends, and it is fun watching the locals dancing to Cajun and Zydeco bands. When your feet get tired, you can sit in the patio or retreat to the houseboat to rest up. There are plenty of swamp tours in the area to check out, several museums in Morgan City, lots of casinos and wonderful places for antiquing. Morgan City is located a 90 minute drive to the nightlife of New Orleans and 90 minutes to Lafayette with it Cajun ties. This area of Louisiana boasts of frequent festivals celebrating all that life has to offer.

GREAT FUN ON THE BAYOU!

  • 5 of 5
Very cozy houseboat on a picturesque bayou. Jessica was wonderful and available to answer all our questions. Boat was clean and had all the amenities to make it quite comfortable. Relaxed in the hot tub under the stars while we grilled steaks in the green egg. Enjoyed cruising on the pontoon boat and did a little "jug fishing" and caught 6 beautiful catfish. Very relaxing! We are planning to return in the Spring.

Great Way to Start Our Week In Southern Louisiaa

  • 5 of 5
First, Linda makes sure you are comfortable and well informed before you even arrive. And when you leave, and I left my iPod behind, she and her staff made sure to look for it, found it and mailed it off.

The boat is beautiful, well appointed, comfortable and everything you need except your food and attitude are provided. The pontoon boat is a must do. We were out at dawn and sunset to do photography and we were not disappointed.

If Linda is not available, she has two great people who are right nearby. Jessica was there to check us in and give us the tour.

We got take out from Rita Mae's in town and groceries from the store before we got to the boat...and for our two nights we ate in on fried chicken left overs (we ordered lots from Rita Mae) and our provisions.

We are already recommending this to anyone heading this way.

Wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
First off, Linda and I believe her helpers name was Ms. Jessica (apologize if this is wrong) they both met us at the houseboat and were a great help to us. They informed us where to find everything!! The houseboat itself was really cute and the hot tub was a great place to go after a long drive from Oklahoma! Thank you Linda for your hospitality. We hope to come back again in a couple years. :)

Modern houseboat with many amenities

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as described in the listing. The boat was clean and well maintained and very comfortable. Linda was very cordial and helpful. I would recommend this rental to anyone.
We enjoyed the hot tub very much. We fished and tried to catch crabs but to no avail, anyway we had a very enjoyable experience. Gros Marina was lively with swamp pop music on Saturday afternoon.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
The house was in a true Bayou. Awesome location off the beaten path. The owner, Linda, was very accommodating. Marina and it's owner were great as well. We went with 2 other couples and we all loved it. The hot tub was fabulous as we were there during record colds. We want to go back when the weather is warmer!
