Toledo Bend Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

These are Lakefront houses (better than waterfront) located on the main part of Toledo Bend Lake. Fishing piers, boathouses, boat docks and ramp. Large trees and beautiful view of the lake from every angle.

A great place to relax and get away from the frantic pace of the world. Very quiet and peaceful. Also located near the 'Chicken Coop' which is known to crappie fishermen. Well behaved pets (limit to two) are welcomed. A $45 non-refundable pet deposit will be charged.

WiFi available

Heaven... I would love to retire here

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quick getaway that was not too far from home. We own a condo at the beach but were looking for a change of scenery. I wanted water, solitude, nature, and a view. This place fit all of our expectations. Small enough to manage and be cozy. I could sit on the deck and look at the view from sunrise to sunset. It was too windy and cold to fish but that didn't really matter. This may be our off season go to place. We will definitely be back!! Thanks Mike! Sorry we missed you Ruth. Hopefully you enjoyed your grand baby!

Most relaxing vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

My family and me decided to slow down this vacation so we chose the Crappie house and we loved it. The cabin was clean and comfortable and Mike and Ruth were very helpful. We spent every morning fishing and caught tons of fish and spent the afternoons out exploring the area. The weather was a little rough but it made it really nice sitting out on the deck watching the waves in the lake. Even the wife and kids said they would want to come back and considering that they are more used to beaches and Disney World that is saying something. We love it so take my suggestion and have a relaxing vacation for a change.

Excellence On Toledo Bend!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent M-F in late April at the Crappie House.

I'd recently bought a high-end bass boat, and had heard much about fishing at Toledo Bend (we live in Lafayette, La.).

On the Internet, I did multiple searches for rental property on Toledo Bend with two primary requirements; a beautiful lakefront view; and a place to launch my boat from the property.

The Crappie House fulfilled both requirements, and was, actually, more than we expected!

The cabin was immaculately clean, and the grounds, overlooking the main lake, and an adjoining cove, were beautiful, and well kept.

There is a private boat launch next to the cabin, with a weather-protected area on the outside of the launch to leave one's boat in the water for the length of the visit, a huge plus for me.

The owner's, Mike and Ruth, are very professional, friendly and accommodating...always available if needed.

We intend to make the Crappie House our destination at Toledo Bend for any trips in the future.

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hands down the best family vacation we have had. Our stay was really relaxing and great for our whole family. The cabin was so darn cute and was completely stocked with everything so just bring yourselves and food and you are good to go! We went the weekend before Christmas so the weather was chilly but it didn't stop us from going out and enjoying the beautiful property and letting the dogs run free was awesome. We loved the little beach area our dog didn't want to get out, lol. My teenagers loved the tree swing!! My son did a little fishing but didn't have any luck, lol. Loved all the board games and the extra blow up mattress came in handy. I can not wait to return in the Spring or Summer. I have nothing bad to say about our trip to the Crappie House! It was just breath taking. The owners are super sweet and you really do feel like you are out there all alone. Very quiet and peaceful. My only suggestion and this is me just picking but during the Holidays it would of been great to see like a small Christmas Tree or something in the cabin, I think that was the only thing missing if I had to point something out. I can not wait to return with my family!!!

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

It was way better than we expected. The cabin was perfect for is & our 3 younger kids. Loved the glass front & the rocking chairs on the deck. The views are breath taking. The private piers & boat ramp were are favorite part! No dealing with anyone!

The Crappie House ranks up at the top of all the places we have stayed, and we travel extensively. It was clean and quiet, with everything we needed. Mike and Ruth were amazing hosts. The bird life was abundant. The bald eagle was majestic, and the 'Yankee swans" provided a good chuckle. Fish? Check. Peace? Check. Quiet? Check. This place is a definite YES for those seeking to get away and relax. We heartily recommend it.
