The Sportsmans Lodge is essentially a floating houseboat featuring a large great room lounge area with comfortable seating and a wide flat-screen television for socializing. Watch your chef prepare fresh local fare in their open kitchen and dining area. Plus, the complimentary bar is always open for you to help yourself. There’s an outdoor seating area to enjoy your morning coffee or enjoy the evening sunset with a drink in your hand. There is also an additional widescreen television located outside on the back deck so you’ll never miss a sporting event. Upstairs are 8 individual bedrooms with a variety of bedding arrangements with private and semi-private bathrooms. The entire lodge is serviced by a central air conditioning system.
Food and Beverages
Anybody who has visited the deep south knows that good food is part of the draw and experience. Your stay at the Sportsmans Lodge will be no exception. Southern and Cajun cuisine will be on the menu every day. Food and beverages are all-inclusive with your package. Packages will include a hot breakfast before your guide trip, lunch along with snacks, soft drinks, and water on the guide boat, and then appetizers and dinner back at the lodge. And don’t forget about the complimentary bar. If you desire to take any alcoholic beverages with you on the guide boat during your day of fishing, you must bring it with you. The lodge legally cannot provide alcoholic beverages to take with you on the guide boats.
Non-Angling Activities and Options
