6 of us spent the weekend here and had so much fun. Home is well decorated and appears small but was plenty roomy for us. Cell service is minimal so may have problem navigating with your phone. We canoed, noodled and enjoyed a huge campfire. We took quick trip to Natchitoches for the Festival of Lights and saw the Steel Magnolia home. We hope to return for another great weekend. Owner was very prompt with responses and helpful.

Wonderful Weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

My stay was wonderful. We were located right on the lake. And the setup was perfect with a boat ramp, dock, a outdoor building to gather, a laundry room, a mother-in-law cabin, and the main cabin. It was secluded also. There was a total of eleven in our party and we had plenty of room. We enjoyed fishing, visiting, golfing, and eating at the nearby restaurants. I can't wait to visit again.

Nice Cabin Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had an overall positive experience. The cabin was easy to find and had all of the amenities anyone needs for a nice stay on the lake. The view of the lake from the cabin was nice but somewhat obscured as it was nestled in the trees back from the bank. This was offset with a great view from the dock. We would definitely stay there again.

Cypress Bend

Toledo Bend Reservoir is the largest man made lake in the south and 5th largest in the nation. It is located along the Northern border of Louisiana and Texas. The lake spans 186,000 acres with 1,200 miles of shoreline. Many bass tournaments are held on the lake with the record catches holding at 14 pound for bass and just under 5 pounds for crappie. Stripers can run up to 40 pounds in size here at the lake. Toledo Bend is a great place to spend winter with its moderate climate. MINIMUM temperatures in January average 40 degrees and the maximum temperature in July average 94. As you can see it’s no wonder why Louisiana has been dubbed a “Sportsman’s Paradise.” Here at the Lakefront Lodge you’ll be minutes away from the first class golf course Cypress Bend Golf Resort, Spa, and Conference Hotel as well as some of the best fishing in the south.
