On The Horizon

On The Horizon

January 06, 2022 by

Our plans are finally coming to fruition, and we wanted to give you an exclusive, behind the scenes report on our progress and rough outline of what’s on the horizon for The Cajun Vista Resort at Bourgeois Fishing Charters to shed some light on some of the questions we’ve received over these past few months.

The plans for all of the new kitchen cabinets using reclaimed sinker Cypress, harvested right from the swamps in our backyard are well underway!

When will you be offering lodging packages at The Cajun Vista? 

We will be breaking ground on lifting the building next week to ensure we hopefully will never have to worry about flood waters again. This is an impressive engineering feat and no small undertaking so it’s no surprise that it has taken and will continue to take considerable time to complete. While this pushes our Grand Opening back to an estimated late Spring / early Summer launch we believe we will be able to operate in a limited capacity before then and will do everything in our power to ensure just that. Day fishing trips by boat and seaplane will continue uninterrupted.

On the upside of this hindering we were able to take massive strides interior-wise and are excited to enhance the experience for you, our guests.

We’re giving the bayou front view of the lodge a bigtime facelift! Starting with new, grand columns and a completely overhauled patio with outdoor dining and lounging.

What structural changes are being made at The Cajun Vista Resort?

Our entire fishing facility will now be 3 stories at a whopping 9-foot elevation with easy access to guest elevators.

Ground Floor Improvements

Open Lounge area perfect for outdoor events, adding another covered meeting space

2nd Floor 

  • A welcoming turn-key Check In station for arriving guests. 
  • Indoor/Outdoor Dining Room seating with an elevated view of the bayou front side of the building.
  • Expanded semi-open concept Kitchen enabling an interactive guest experience. 
  • Our largest guestroom has been subdivided for expanding our booking capacity, now totaling 10 guestrooms. Still sleeping 36 guests comfortably.
  • Second elevator to access 3rd Floor 

3rd Floor

Cosmetic updates will be made throughout the top level.

What will the atmosphere be like at the new Cajun Vista Resort?

Our aim is to provide our guests with a one of a kind full immersion into Cajun Culture through luxurious amenities, locally sourced & familial cuisine, and nothing but meticulously curated tranquility at every corner of our estate . Check your worries at the door from the moment you check in and let our friendly staff help you ease your mind into bayou time! 

We want every aspect of your experience and surroundings to reflect the love and respect we have for our small fishing community and her culture by showcasing the beauty in her history, and the legacy preserved by the resolve and resilience of her people. 

The Cajun way of life is one we are proud to share with our guests in an elevated contemporary setting.

We hope 2022 brings you bigger and brighter things!

Well we were planning a fall fishing trip in 2021, but Mother Nature had different plans. We’re excited to see y’all will be back in the lodging/fishing trips late spring. Can’t wait to book our trip this early summer! I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about y’all and know it’s only going to be better! Thanks for the update! Bob H.
