About Elise, Kellye and Lane Romine

We want to share our family home with you as we do not live here all the time anymore. Our youngest son graduated in 2012 and our jobs have taken us in different parts of the world. We want to allow folks the benefits we enjoy at our lakehouse and it not just sit empty. We love this home and always plan to be able to come back and visit when our careers allow. We have 3 grown children and when we get together, this is our perferred place to go... Fishing is great and hunting is good...

Elise, Kellye and Lane Romine purchased this house in 2007

Why Elise, Kellye and Lane Romine chose Toledo Bend

Easy to access on black top road, nice sized, family and pet friendly, large nice yard, covered boat dock/fishing pier where you can catch crappie/white perch with a minnow and cane pole! Early morning with the mist coming off the water is as good as it gets... You can drink your coffee while watching the bass hit the top of the water and the ducks swim by....

What makes this house unique

Great mid-lake location, easy to access, just walk out your back door and get in your boat and go fish or ride or whatever. Quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. We are located in the Patroon Creek area, mid-lake and right next to Holly Park Marina. Fishing is great in Patroon and everyone around is nice and helpful.

Leaves nothing to be desired!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a five day stay at Payton's Lakehouse. The home was well appointed and stocked with many unexpected extras leaving nothing to be desired. The owner, Lane, offered many fishing tips. I can't say enough about the caretaker who went out of her way to insure our stay was perfect. The separate boat house, fishing wharfs, john boat, huge yard, and many other amenities provided the setting for a relaxing and memorable week on the lake. We definitely plan to return - hopefully often!

We felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the Payton's Lake House! The property is full of huge shade trees. I napped almost every afternoon in the swing hanging from a tree in the backyard. There was plenty of room in the house for our family of nine. We used the grill a few times and the fryer for all those big bass we caught! The docks were amazing. We spent a lot of our time out there day and night. My 13 year old daughter caught the first fish of the trip from the dock around 1030 our first night there. This place is very peaceful and serene. We had a minor issue with the phone. We contacted the owners and they were very responsive and helpful. We would definitely rent this place again! Thank you for sharing your home with my family!

Best Place I've Stayed on Toledo Bend

  • 5 of 5

We fish Toledo Bend every year and have stayed in a few different places, but Payton's Lakehouse is definitely the best place we've stayed to date. The camp was in great condition and had all of the amenities that we needed. The waterfront access and covered boat dock made our fishing trips a breeze. The camp's location in a relatively secluded bayou off of the main lake provided a "protected" and really fun atmosphere for our kids to have their own little adventures in the paddle boat and john boat. The nearby marina was a very convenient place to launch our boats and buy bait, ice, and other supplies. Plus, we found this area of the lake to have outstanding fishing. We caught more fish this weekend than on any other trip we've ever taken to Toledo Bend (I wish there was a way to attach a picture of our catch). We will definitely be staying at this camp again.

I can't say enough great things about this place!!!! The pictures definitely do not do it justice! The amount of waterfront property is phenomenal! The yard is HUGE and the house is beautiful! I brought my son and his friends for his 10th birthday and we all had a Blast! They fished and swam all weekend long! They loved the small boats that the owner provided! The fishing docks were awesome and the boys loved that they were lighted, so they were able to do some night fishing! I had fun sitting at the camp fire right near there, watching them fish. We felt like we had the lake all to ourselves! I will definitely stay here again the next time we go back. It was an outstanding family friendly environment with tons to do and lots of room to roam. Also extremely close to the boat ramp and a small store that came in handy! The owners had everything we needed for a nice stay and the house was very clean and spacious! They even had board games that came in handy on a rainy night!

Duck hunting is great in this areas and the fishing is some of the best on the lake.
