The deluxe lodging package is designed for the customer that prefers someone else worry with the details of his trip. It is an all inclusive lodging package that provides three delicious meals, a fine selection of refreshments including premium liquors, beer and soft drinks, and a night's lodging at the Calcasieu Charter Service Lodge. It is perfect for the individual group or the corporate entertainer who wants to spend their valuable time relaxing with friends or business associates instead of worrying with food preparation and other details which consume important time. This package, which is standard in our deluxe hunting package, can be chosen as an option to go along with our fishing packages or when staying at the lodge without using our hunting or fishing services.
Your adventure begins the evening before your trip upon arrival at our lodge located in the quiet settlement adjacent Hebert's Marina on the eastern shore of Calcasieu Lake. After stowing your gear in your private room, you are ready to get started. You can choose to relax in the comfort of the lodge and swap fishing and hunting tales, check out the wall of fame which tells a tale of days gone by, or step outside and enjoy the salt air on our patio just steps from Calcasieu Lake. If you are the curious type, you may enjoy a stroll around the marina for a quick survey of the day's activities or a look at one of our fine center console fishing machines. Of course, back at the lodge an assortment of cold beverages is always available at our well stocked open bar and satellite TV is available for those that feel the need to stay in touch with reality.
Then comes the good part, dinner. The menu, which is skillfully prepared and served by Chef Tina Rue and her staff, is always the highlight of the evening. Tina has a unique style of cooking which can best be described as "a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll." She has blended her Houma, LA upbringing with some big city style to bring forth some really wonderful dishes. With some traditional cajun dishes, an assortment of local seafood, game and fowl recipes, as well as some top quality beef entrees on the menu, you will always have a great dining experience, not to mention the fantastic desserts. As one of our loyal customers once said "You can catch a few fish or shoot a few birds in a lot of places, but food like this is something to brag about."
After a good night's rest, you will be awakened to the srnell of hot coffee brewing. A full breakfast of eggs, biscuits and sausages will get you ready for the day ahead. You will meet your captain, who will arrive at the lodge and get the supplies for the day prepared. Be sure to let him know of any special needs you may have or if you may have forgotten something. He is there to make your trip a success. Let him know what you are looking for in your trip so he can direct his efforts to making your day a memorable one.
Arriving at our dock at Hebert's Marina shortly before sunrise, the boats will be loaded with your gear, a nice boxed lunch and an assortment of your favorite beverages. Then off you go to experience the best that Calcasieu Lake has to offer. For your convenience, upon returning from your exciting day on the water you may return to the lodge to clean up before your departure, an option not available at any of the hotels in Lake Charles and a showing of our appreciation for staying with us.
The check in time is 4pm and check out is 3pm. Please use these hours as a guideline, but realize that we are flexible for those trips coming in late to the dock, as well as for early arrivals.
The cost for the deluxe lodging package is $190 per person.
