The hospitality of the owner and his wife was heartwarming. The food and accommodations were great, and my son still talks about the venison chili. I plan to return next season.

Southern Breeze!

A focal point at The Lodge is 500' of bayou frontage and two covered pavilions; horseshoe pits; and a massive Flagstone fireplace on the bayou burm.  Over 3.5 acres of leg stretching manicured grounds with affordable comfort and convenience including onsite games storage and processing.  

Location, Location, Location

We are located in "The Heart of Seadrift" and close to everything that's important to our guests and we strike several different launch points depending upon wind direction and velocity.  This allows us to keep the wind in your hair without the pounding of running into the big chop.  Other focal points include our large covered porches including a 2,500 square foot wraparound outdoor kitchen and outdoor fireplace, bar & big screen TV, comfortable dining and conversation areas; and the massive stone adorned wrap around porches on the bayou quarters building. Porches have a Southern elevation to capture our dominate Southerly winds during the summertime and are sheltered from North winds in the Winter just like we planned it!  

Relax & Get Comfortable!

We opened the lodge in 2007 and our guests have made us a huge success.  In the Fall of 2015 we wanted to say thanks and we began acquiring adjacent properties and expanding our footprint with many new improvements.  With the new adjacent Bayou Property you will find 2 plus acres of manicured greenbelts and our kayak staging area with miles of trail available for guest access.  If mixing business with pleasure, it is the perfect backdrop for entertaining clients, meetings, and team building. 

Dining/Conference Building - New for 2016 are new focal points including the Dining/Conference Building with seating for 40 guests trimmed in knotty Alder built-ins; soaring ceilings and taxidermy and the smells of Wendi's home cooking.  

Bayou Facility - Now with plenty of leg stretching room, the New for 2016 Bayou complex is another huge focal point with upgrade accommodations for up to 24 guests with massive wrap around porches; full size beds for couples; built-in gun racks; in room refrigerators; free WIFI and work stations for mixing business with pleasure; luxurious bathrooms trimmed in granite and hammered copper; numerous gear storage built-ins; adjacent mud room and gear staging area; and an ice machine.  The grounds are just amazing with 700' of water frontage on Haley's Bayou and complete with two lighted pavilions and 4 sets of horseshoe pits; and, a massive flagstone fireplace carved right into the side of the bayou levee.

Quarters Building - is directly adjacent to the Dining/Conference building and the outdoor kitchen and consists of private bedrooms and "in room" bathrooms and a large Great Room. The Great Room offers relaxed conversation and is centrally located with leather sofas, Free WIFI, LCD flat panel satellite TV, wet bar/coffee station, refrigerator, and microwave. It is centrally located with easy access to the Bayou Pavilions and grounds.
