The Lodge at Butte La Rose is a venue in the tradition of the South Louisiana "camp". Conveniently located 5 miles south of I-10 and nestled in the community of Butte La Rose, the only community in the Atchafalaya Basin. The Basin is the largest wetland in the United States. The Lodge is your home base to launch your exploration of the Atchafalaya and the Acadiana region.
We here at The Lodge want your stay in the Basin to be memorable and relaxing. There are so many things to do and see here at The Lodge, or just sit on the screened in porch, read a book, and enjoy a glass of wine. You can also go sight seeing, shopping, hiking, kayaking, or nature hunting. We can accommodate up to 16 people so bring all your friends or family and pass a good time in the bayou! Make sure you ask Ms Gerri to tell you a Boudreaux and Thibodeaux joke. She's got a million of them!!
The Atchafalaya Basin may be one of the last refuges for such endangered species as the Peregrine Falcon, the Florida Panther, Bachman's Warbler and the Ivory Bill Woodpecker. About 100 species of fish, crawfish, shrimp and crabs support sport and commercial fishing, and feed birds, reptiles and mammals. Other animals that call the Atchafalaya home are the endangered Louisiana black bear, white tail deer, bobcat, coyote, alligator, beaver, nutria, mink, otter, musk rat, armadillo, fox and opossum. Overall, the Atchafalaya Basin is home to nine Federal and State listed endangered/threatened wildlife species, six endangered/threatened bird species, twenty nine rookeries, greater than forty mammalian species, over forty reptile species and more than twenty amphibian species. (US Wildlife Bureau).
Acadiana is the home of the Cajun people, the descendents of the Acadians, who settled along the bayous and prairies of southwest Louisiana after their expulsion from Acadie (Nova Scotia) in 1755. It is a place of the incredibly rich musical, cultural and culinary traditions of the Cajuns and Creoles, and is a place like no other. Warm and wonderfully hospitable people, many living simple but rich lives, great food, dancehalls ringing with rollicking music and trembling with the combined foot-stomping of hundreds of dancers, and the quiet, singular beauty of the bayous and swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin.
