Houseboat -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Morgan City, Louisiana
Our spacious houseboat is moored in the Atchafalaya Basin. It sleeps up to 10. Relax in the quiet scenic beauty of the Louisiana bayou. Enjoy the beauty of nature, dine and dance to live Zydeco/Cajun/country music on the weekends during summer months. Gaze at the night stars and enjoy! Rent the attached fishing/ski boat and explore the waterways, or hop on our FOC kayaks to get a little exercise.

The Summer Time is a 56 foot houseboat located in the heart of the Atchafalaya Natural Heritage Area, one of southern Louisiana's finest bayous. The Atchafalaya Basin is rich in natural flora and fauna. Activities include bayou sightseeing, fishing and bird watching. (Keep your eyes open for the gators and resident bald eagles and osprey!) There are great blue herons, egrets and kingfishers to feast the eyes on.

Your group was a lot of fun! Had a good time trying to figure out if our families were connected in any way because of our shared surname. Hope you decide to visit again in the future.
