At The Lodge you are only a few minutes away from great food, wonderful music, and good shopping. You are in the middle of a true cajun experience when at The Lodge as Gerri and Liz will help you find exactly what you're looking to do, from food to activities, to a cruise on their private party barge through the swamp!

During the summer months you'll be able to enjoy the swimming pool, also part of the price of the apartment. We also have a 20 x 30 deck overlooking the canal where you can sit and watch birds, fish, or just relax with a good book and a glass of wine. It's also great for a good dance!!
