The Lodge

Welcome to Saltgrass Outdoors

Stay and play in Venice, Louisiana, the Sportsman Paradise. This all-inclusive Lodge is an antebellum home located an hour south of New Orleans on the slender peninsula that forms the tip of the Louisiana boot and the mouth of the Mississippi River. A single highway hugs the western side of the river deep into the thick Louisiana marshland to the river’s end, the Mississippi River delta.

Saltgrass Lodge

Saltgrass Lodge consists of four levels. The ground level is a covered open-air entertaining area that allows large groups a reprieve from the hot summer sun or inclement weather. Come dine on the Second Level, where you’ll find the kitchen, dining, and living rooms, as well as the Cypress Room- a cypress wood-lined room fit for card games. A wraparound porch surrounds the level with a French door entry and exit from all rooms. An extended deck features an outdoor kitchen and seating for dining or lounging to the rear. The third and fourth levels feature rooms and suites.


Completely renovated in 2007, this nearly 7,000 square foot antebellum home is a quaint escape in the heart of bayou country. Saltgrass Lodge sleeps up to 24 guests. The Lodge achieves a special type of nostalgic luxury with consideration to classic Louisiana plantation architecture. Each room or suite is equipped with plush bedding, pillowtop mattresses, and well-appointed bathrooms. Guests enjoy the magnificent views of the Mississippi River while relaxing and dining on gourmet meals. Saltgrass offers daily itineraries for families and outdoors enthusiasts.



Lodging includes exquisite meals prepared by an executive chef. From sunrise to sunset, guests never tire of the fantastic view.
