At both Berry Creek Cabins and J & D River Rentals, putting guests first and giving them an incredible experience has been what it’s all about since the beginning. Comfortably nestled within the woods of Washington Parish, LA, our grounds cover seven stunning acres with cabins that are much more than simply temporary vacation spots. Instead, they are idyllic hideaways – the ultimate homes away from home – and a place you and your family can truly enjoy spending quality time with one another. From the moment you arrive at Berry Creek Cabins, you’ll revel in the splendor of the natural sights, smells and sounds. From majestic oaks hanging overhead to a string of peaceful ponds nearby, Berry Creek’s location offers guests a front-row view of the hidden gems of Washington Parish and much more. In fact, each and every cabin comes equipped with kitchen amenities, A/C, TV/wi-fi access, DirectTV, private bathrooms, as well as access to a vibrant dry bar and lounge area on-site. But while cabins may vary in size – capable of accommodating anywhere between four and 12 guests at one time – they maintain the same standard of quality and class. What’s more? Every Berry Creek guest is welcome to relax or mingle out on the 2,700-square-foot deck and indoor pavilion. These are especially popular destinations on serene summer days, where groups can gather to play games and enjoy the crisp, fresh air. Looking for adventure? No problem! From canoeing and kayaking to volleyball and soccer, Berry Creek offers a wide range of activities, all only a stone’s throw away from your cabin site. Also, RV/Camper Rentals offers mobile campers for camping on site or set up for you ( RT-66 & Travel Star only) at one of two nearby campgrounds along the Bogue Chitto river. Don’t spend another day dreaming of when to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Located a little more than an hour away from New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Berry Creek Cabins will give you the perfect reprieve you deserve without the added expense of faraway travel. We’re always happy to help our guests plan their dream vacation, and we’re here for any questions that come up along the way. Contact us Today! [read more]

Portis aka "Doc" and his wife of over 50 years, Dr. Verna Johnson Portis have lived in Corpus Christi since 1969 and Doc was the West Oso High School Bears' Band Director, a title he held for more than 30 years. "Doc" retired in 2002 he wanted to open a restaurant that was simple and served nothing but good old-fashioned home-cooking. In 2003 Portis Kountry Kitchen, Katering and Gifts opened its doors to serve traditional soul food to hungry locals. This cozy hidden gem is in the BASEMENT of the Wells Fargo Bank Tower!
