The Lodge is now a quaint escape in the heart of bayou country, Louisiana. Inviting rocking chairs on the wrap-around porches enable visitors to view the cargo and cruise ships navigating the currents of the Mississippi River. In addition, the grounds feature a cabana-lined pool, pool deck, 600 square foot Oyster Deck, open-air entertainment areas, and gourmet meals to complete the daily itinerary for visiting sportspeople and families.
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. In addition, the level is also surrounded by a wrap-around porch with a French door entry and exit from all rooms. To the rear, an extended deck features an outdoor kitchen along with seating for dining or lounging. The Third and Fourth Levels are rooms and suites.
Southern Hospitality Provided by Local Families
The Lodge is maintained by Nicolas, Raymond’s right-hand man. He expertly takes care of grounds and maintenance. When he’s not meticulously keeping the grounds, you’ll find him cleaning redfish as well as stirring up the pots for our shrimp boil and fish fry. Nicholas is married to our head chef, Caterina. They and their three boys, Angel, Manuel, and Raymond (named after Raymond) are family. Our returning customers tell us their stay isn’t complete without seeing both Nicolas and Caterina. This means that our local families make sure our guests experience true Southern Hospitality.
