Welcome To the Swamp! Whiskey Business is the perfect spot to escape the ordinary city life and see what the swamp has to offer. Property is located directly between the greater New Orleans and Baton Rouge Metro Areas in the heart of the Maurepas swamp, right off the Chinquapin canal. This spacious, 1500 sq. ft. loft floor plan has been fully renovated with all the modern amenities of a custom home with a keen attention to detail. The options to pass your time during your stay here are endless!

The space
Upon arrival, guest will see parking with a sidewalk leading way to a raised and welcoming large front porch. Past the porch, is entry to the home where you will walk into a spacious and open floor plan.

Upon entry, guest will be standing at the start of the full kitchen with all modern amenities including all stainless appliances, (French door refrigerator, microwave, and range with oven) garbage disposal, granite sink, porcelain counter tops, center island with breakfast bar for 3 and all kitchen set up items needed for your stay. At the rear of the kitchen, just to the right of the entry is the full bath. The barn style door offering access and privacy to the full bath was pulled from an antebellum home on river road in Reserve, LA and re-purposed specifically for this property.

Next to the kitchen is a dinner nook with seating for four that looks out over Chinquapin canal that is the perfect setting for a mid day lunch or an evening dinner watching the sunset over the swamp. The room then flows into to the living area equipped with a smart LED TV loaded with current apps for streaming as well as YouTube TV included. Furnishings in the living area include a full size couch, love seat and oversized chair along with end and coffee tables. The living room also has 5.1 surround sound and low light lamps for late night movies.

Behind the sofa are the stairs that will lead guest to the second story loft that contains 2 queen sized beds with custom built head boards from reclaimed doors that date back to the 1860s, a half bath, nightstand and armoire for any garments that may need to be hung. All shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, toilet paper, and coffee are provided with your stay.

After guests are done inside, the back door leads out onto a fully raised deck that stretches the width of the property with lots of space for sun, cooking, fishing, and just taking in the scenery. Four fishing poles are provided to guest.

Connected to the back deck is a covered deck that extends 30’ over the water and has 2 -3500 lb boat lifts and a fish cleaning station. Guests are welcome to bring their own water craft and can be kept in the boat house for the duration of their stay. There is a convenient boat launch at the front of the neighborhood for you to launch upon arrival. Lift planks can be adapted for different types of boats if needed. Boat house also includes power for charging and outdoor lighting.

The Chinquapin Canal opens into Blind River and is a short boat ride to Lake Maurepas as well as the Diversion Canal. Along both routes, there are endless places for fishing, frogging, and touring places most people never get to see from land. Whether you fish from the dock for catfish, or hit the stumps in your own boat for wide mouth bass, spotted bass, sac a lait, and other native fish to the area, you are almost sure to bring home a great dinner.

If fishing isn’t your thing, there are many other adventures around the lake! You are minutes from the sand bars in Lake Maurepas. A quick jog north of the lake takes you to the Tickfaw River where the popular hot spots The Prop Stop and Tin Lizzie’s are located, as well as Sun Buns and Middendorph’s in Manchac. This area and the lake are also prime tubing, skiing, and wake boarding spots. A little closer brings you to the Diversion Canal that hosts Canal Bank, Dicarlo’s Food and Spirits, Lagniappe, and Rum Buoy’s. If you don't have a boat and need to rent one, you can contact Geaux Outdoors for availability.

Even-though Whiskey Business is located in the heart of the swamp, there are several locations close by that offer various services to our guests. All within 6 miles are Brian’s Supermarket, Whitehall Grocery, New Orleans Original Daiquiris, Dollar General, along with various restaurants, bars, and fuel stations. Delivery is not available by Waitr etc. however, both grocery stores have delis and can take custom pizza orders for pick up. (Make sure to call as their hours vary with the seasons!)

The most appealing part of this property is the environment that it is located. We are in nature and with that comes the possibility of some amazing wildlife sightings. Many species of birds and owls are abundant as well as bald eagles. The occasional alligator, deer, and snake may be spotted as well. Please be respectful of their territory we are in their habitat. We don't restrict access to the lofts or decks, but we are not responsible for any injuries that may occur by entering the loft/deck areas. Children must be supervised on walkways/lofts and docks at all times.

Two kayaks are provided to explore the canal and swimming is not restricted but please use extreme caution due to the possibility of wildlife as well as heavy boat traffic. The canal is a not wake restricted and can get very busy at times.
