We spent the whole day relaxing and fishing from the dock Quiet cove, beautiful setting. Katwing was very helpful and accommodating.
The house was beautiful and so clean. The back porch looking out at the water was peaceful and relaxing! Amazing!!!
Being able to fish from the backyard was awesome!! The cabin was very roomy and the pool table was fun! If you’re looking for relaxation while being secluded, this is the place for you! Our family will be back!
Great place ,secluded , quiet.
We enjoyed our stay here, the house was very clean and up to date which was a plus! We will be back!
Pros: 1. Awesome piece of property on a quiet, secluded cove 2. Pretty good kitchen 3. Very responsive & helpful owners 4. Local management (Denise) is very responsive & helpful 5. Great central AC & fans 6. No issues docking boat on location (although trailering a boat to the house may be difficult - we rented a boat on the water) Cons: 1. There was no ladder at the dock to help get out of the water. The adults were fine but the kids required help every time. This became a bit frustrating. 2. Do not count on the wifi for anything important like school or work; it was there, but we struggled to even load a web page. Plus, there's a house rule that you cannot stream anything 3. The only large skillet was so bent that it made cooking pretty difficult. Tried the wok but it too was bent badly. I'm confident Kit & Katwing will remedy this (as Denise replaced the coffee pot for us very promptly) 4. Bunk bud was so noisy it woke people every time the person sleeping in the top bunk adjusted their sleeping position 5. Shower next to bunk beds had almost zero water pressure which made showers take a really long time. The rest of the house had great water pressure, so again, I'm confident Kit & Katwing will remedy this promptly. 6. The hill is somewhat steep near the dock. There are some stairs built but the uppermost stairs have washed away and this is the worst spot. We had small children that handled it fine, but anyone elderly may struggle. I'm sure Kit & Katwing will remedy this promptly. 7. Only 4 outdoor chairs were provided and two of them were broken. 8. There is a pool table, which is a cool feature, but it was leaning so badly and the condition of the cues made the game unplayable. 9. Cleanliness of air vents made me question air quality 10. Wicker outdoor couch on back porch had no cushions. General info: 1. Wear shoes when swimming around the dock. Maybe that's common sense, but we did have a group member get snagged pretty bad by a double treble-hook lure. 2. No shade available by the dock and it is in full sun from 12 pm onward - so bring your own umbrella if you want some shade 3. Bring firewood - the house is surrounded by woods but there really wasn't any fallen limbs to gather and nothing provided to cut the wood. Plenty of moss and small sticks for kindling. 4. There is great seating around the kitchen island - which we used fine - but only a 4 person table for eating, so bring a folding table if that's important to you
Got to have quality time using the house as a base. Rented boat for day of fishing, visited family one day, and found good cajun food nearby. Did not use kayak or canoe, but did play some pool. Did not turn the tv on. Good four days.
We had an amazing time! It was in the perfect location for where we wanted to fish! We were able to keep the boat tied up at the dock for easy access to our fishing spots! Check in was easy, the property was clean on the inside, and it was perfect for us!!
Very clean and relaxing place that the family and our labs enjoyed. Fast responses on questions and checked in with us to make sure everything was ok. Do recommend
We really enjoyed our time here. The property is very spacious, back porch is wonderful, and the dock was perfect for a little fishing or just enjoying the scenery. We loved the location of the property being so quiet and private. We will definitely plan to stay again!
Just what we needed
Any questions I had were answered promptly. Easy check in and check out.
Very nice and relaxing place. We had a couple issues with refrigerator and ac but they were addressed promptly. The owners and property manager were very easy to deal with. We’d go back!
Great place in a quiet cove!
Clean and beautiful spot.
We had a nice relaxing week at the house on Toledo bend!
Although the place needed some major care, we still had a relaxing time. There were quite a few things that needed to be cleaned up. One we had a very large party staying for 9 days, the trash had to be cleaned up daily because no one ever picked up the trash as promised. The bathrooms were picked up but NOT cleaned or mopped. Also the sheets and bedspread needed washing abs were dirt stained. The floors hadn’t been sweeped and there were numerous cob webs all over the house. The fridge was filthy and we had to clean it befire we could place our food inside. You would think they would at the very least clean up all excess debris downstairs and around the fire pit. The ants and bugs in the home were ridiculous!!! The boat dock that the owners newly built was actually just a wood dock about 4 -5 feet long and not at all suitable to dock an actual boat. We enjoyed the outdoors and the lake. The long drive way to the house is very rough and not boat friendly at all. There’s no boat launch close to the home either!!! It would have been a lot more enjoyable if the rental could be kept up better and cleaned more throughly. It wouldn’t hurt to do sone pest control in the home. But what other choice did we have we traveled 24 hours to get there!!!
It was exactly as advertised. Very nice open living area! Pool table was fun! Loved the bath with the huge shower! Definitely be back! Kit is great and quick to respond. Very accommodating.
The home was very comfortable. The cove was awesome for fishing, swimming and just hanging out. Had great access to the lake but far enough off that it was always calm in the cove. The home was perfect for our needs. Clean and had all the amenities that we needed so we did not have to buy the small stuff. Loved it!!
Property was very nice and updated. Super clean and had plenty of room. Enjoyed it greatly. Thanks.
We enjoyed our stay , the place was comfortable and accommodating. The location was perfect.
This place is everything a person needs on the lake. Rods, reels, bait, canoes, what else could you want? How about a wrap around deck, got it! Want a hammock on the deck, got it! Bar-B-Que pit, yea that’s there too. Great place to stay, with owners that are great to work with. We’re going back.
Our son and his family joined us for a delightful Spring Break getaway. The cabin was perfect - quiet and right on the water. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to have a good time. Close to a grocery store too! Very CLEAN and neat. The girls loved the pool table. Steps down to the boat dock were a little dicey for us old folks and it would have been nice if the fish fryer out on the back porch had worked. We LOVED that back porch! ROUGH road/driveway getting back to the house was hard on the boat trailer, but well worth effort. We would definitely return.
This place offers as much as you could expect for a trip to Toledo Bend can offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the camp is really big enough so that everyone can enjoy thems LD and not be on top of each other. With the addition of a dock it allows easy and quick water access and we plan to make return trips here in the future
Absolutely gorgeous home! The kitchen is AMAZING, and the main room is fantastic, but the star of the house is the back deck, which wraps around the entire back of the house and overlooks the lake. There are two great Mexican restaurants within 10 minutes, along with a nice grocery store and plenty of places to buy beer (high priority for us).
Plenty of space. Convenient location near the boat launch and fish. Very quiet and relaxing. Owners are very accommodating.
Will be booking again soon.
We had a great time even though it was really cold. The house was well equipped for just about anything we wanted to do. We tried fishing on the new pier one day but it was just too cold and only could go for a few hours. This place would be great in the warm summer when you could go swimming and really go fishing.
It was perfect for our group.
Yard needs a lot of work. Steps to the dock are dangerous. My son went thru the sand and almost hurt himself a lot. The cabin is as described and is cozy. It needs some different matters they are hard. We did enjoy our stay it just needs a lil outside care.
We enjoyed our stay at this cozy house in the woods. Very roomy living room and the wrap around deck was nice to relax on. This house was well stocked with cooking utensils and was much cleaner than other places we have rented in the past. My only complaint is the driveway was not very friendly for a larger (22’) boat, but we managed. We Will definitely come back again!
Our family - including our golden retriever 10 month old puppy - -stayed at this cabin for a last minute summer getaway. We ALL had a wonderful time canoeing, fishing, riding bikes, doing a little hiking, barbecuing, playing pool and card games. The view of the cove was beautiful from the gorgeous wrap around porch and the upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms are excellent! Also, the water pressure was perfect, tasted great, and had more than enough hot water! Often times we have found with cabins there are issues with the water - but not with this cabin! The water's perfect! The owners, Kit and Katwing Comby, were very accommodating and excellent with the communication. (Little side notes: There is Wi-Fi in the cabin through Dish, but there's no streaming of videos or games allowed. Our kids had to learn that the hard way! Yikes! Sorry about that Kit!) We definitely will be coming back and stay a little longer! Very nice, very quiet, very peaceful! Stay here and recharge!! We highly recommend it! THANKS AGAIN! The Aucoin's
Kitchen and main living area as well as bathrooms are nice. Only two bedrooms with everyone sleeping in those two bedrooms if you bring a large group. The exterior of the house and the grounds poorly maintained. Walkways were not blown off, grass not mowed, poison ivy growing up on most of the walkways. Hard to turn boat/trailer around in the somewhat narrow parking area. Could be a very nice place with a little maintenance.
Owners are so sweet I hate writing this review but thankfully it was only my husband and I that stayed only 3 nights for a quick getaway. Cabin and grounds Not at all ready to accommodate children!!! R elderly!!! The inside is being renovated but in our opinion should have been gutted!!!! Lots of rot!!! To launch our kayaks we had to back up trailer next to cabin on a narrow trail w steep drop off!!! Then slide kayaks down steep bank to water!!! To pick them up we tied them to trailer and drive up to level ground!!! (Impossible to do with a boat). Hubby discribed this place as Putting lipstick on a pig!!!! We would consider coming back---For the boucherie!!!
Nice quiet place with a large wrap around porch. Clean, nice kitchen, the dog and the kids loved it.
A nice cabin in the woods. Good road access from the highway in to the cabin. The inside is roomy and spacious to spread out. Two fully equipped bedrooms with attached baths each. The large kitchen and den completed the entire inside picture. A wide comfortable porch circled 3/4's of the cabin. From there you could enjoy the view of the lake and the thickly wooded area outside. Of course there were plenty of birds to see and listen to. The walk down to the lake is compatible to those in shape; it is a little steep. It is worth the trip if you want to wade or swim in the lake. Enjoyed our trip very much.
Had a group of guys for a fishing trip. The house was very comfortable and clean. The outside around the cabin could use some work but overall a nice place to stay.
We were a group of 7 men on a bachelor party; groom is a big fisherman; cabin is in a great location off a cove; Inside of cabin was nice, clean, very spacious. Outside needs a little work; the pool table was not up to par, but playable. Wifi was slow, but we didn't really spend a whole lot of time at the cabin. We fished most of the time; really had a terrific time!
Thanks Kit and Katwing for sharing your lake house with our group! Our stay was comfortable and the location was perfect for the areas of the lake we wanted to fish. Look forward to the next trip !
Very secluded and peaceful. Just what we were looking for!
It was an amazing place to be. At the last minute, I was able to book and get confirmation quickly. Once we arrived, it was a place away from it all, which was exactly what we wanted and needed. The best part was the owners allowed pets. Our dogs do not get to take many adventures but they really enjoyed the woods and being with us. We love to fish and that was such a great experience to fish the area where the home is located. We did read some reviews prior to booking and brought our egg crates for the beds, they were needed. We love it and will be back again!
We really like the house with the exception of the hard beds. It was a very pretty place off a cove on the lake. I plan to stay there again in the future
The property is nestled back in the woods. A long wooded driveway takes you back to the cabin. The front porch was probably my favorite part of the cabin; it overlooks the cut of the lake. The cabin was well stocked with everything you need. The property had steep drops-offs. You can't really fish the banks because everything is overgrown. There is a canoe and kayak to venture off in. As another guest mentioned, the beds were extremely rigid and uncomfortable. Especially, the mattresses on the queen bed frames. Bring wasp and ant spray with you. We had to spray the bathroom for ants, and the entire deck for ants and wasp.
We were very pleased with our stay at the lake. The house was very clean and well stocked. The deck view was perfect for morning coffee and relaxing. The only draw back was the landscaping. I would suggest a little yard work around the cabin.other than that the cove was perfect for swimming and fishing! We will be back!
It's off the beaten path and quiet. It has an area to fish off the bank and they have some kayaks there for you to use. They were very sharing in terms of using their equipment. They were no hassle and very easy to work with. The house was a little older but you could tell they were in the middle of renovating and remodeling. The progress so far looks great but don't expect everything to be perfect right now. My only complaint and why I wouldn't give this a full 5 star is that the WiFi was super slow and/or did not work. We tried everything and on multiple devices. It would show us as connected but the connection was too slow. This made playing music or accessing basic area information very difficult. Otherwise, we had a great stay.
Very relaxing weekend for my family. Very secluded, quiet, and peaceful place to stay. Our dog loved the wooded area to explore. We loved fishing and tubing during the day and playing games and puzzles (provided by the homeowners) at night. The only thing negative I can say about this cabin is that it needs a dock. Otherwise it was great! Will definitely return.
This cabin is spacious I loved the kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of pots, pans, dishes and utensils. I really enjoyed my morning coffee siting in the rocking chair on the porch. The kids had fun playing pool, kayaking and fishing. we really enjoyed our stay.
Secluded with a great view. Wonderful wrap around deck. Large open living and kitchen area. Beautiful bathrooms. The best stocked kitchen ever. Plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans and etc.All linens were provided. They allowed us to bring our pet. He had a blast also. We caught fish right next to where we tied off the boat. House was super clean inside. Nice parking area. Close to stores and a boat launch right around the corner. Thanks Kit!!
The beds aren't the most comfortable, but over all it had everything we needed and we enjoyed our stay!
We loved the cabin. The big open living room was great for entertaining. I wish there were blinds or curtains on the windows. The brush around the water made it hard to fish from the land especially for kids. Both of those are easily fixed and didnt deter from the fun.
