Welcome to Fishful Thinking!

We offer two separate vacation cottage rental units on False River with a private two story pier and dock for your boat.

False River has become a popular place for boating, fishing and various water sport enthusiasts across southern Louisiana.  We are located approximately six miles from New Roads, Louisiana – the heart of Pointe Coupee Parish.

False River is a 10.5 mile long “trophy lake”.   To be a “trophy lake” means that fish of a certain size are required to be thrown back to grow larger.  False River has often held the state record for the largest bass caught, and has the largest number of striped bass per acre in the state.

If you’re into water sports, False River is a great place to go tubing, water skiing, wakeboarding, boating, and jet skiing.

Fishful Thinking is conveniently located to shopping, gas stations, restaurants, bars, and boat launches.   The boat launches are located at either end of False River.  The launch located on the northern end of the lake, is a free public boat launch with barbecue and picnic facilities.   (Satterfields is right next door and offers a fuel dock right on the water.)   Another boat launch located on the southern end of the lake is open to the public with a small fee to access.

Nearby attractions include downtown New Roads (8 miles),  St. Francisville (15 miles), Baton Rouge (30 miles) and New Orleans (100 miles) from False River.  There are several plantation homes and civil war historical sites to see within near False River.  Please take a look at our area attractions page for details and links for places to see.

When it’s time for a lake house vacation, please stay at Fishful thinking.   We will provide a great experience for you!
