Complimentary to guests, Spatterdock Guest Houses provide canoes, kayaks and a row boat (more stable than a canoe) and bicycles.

Paddle your way through the bayous in one of the Spatterdock boats. Necessary equipment is provided. (Please observe state laws).

Pedal the tree-lined country roads in and around Uncertain on Spatterdock bicycles.

Each cottage has a private pier or access to, in the case of The Gallery, the pier at the Carter home, Wildfern. Make your way down “Lost Dog Walk,” through the “Herman Survivor” covered bridge, then climb into the Tri-level “Little Relative” treehouse.

Stroll to the end and sit for a while and enjoy the view of the bayou from the “Balinese Room” or the extended addition to the pier. On your way back, peek into the over-the-water bunkhouse, “Whangdoodle.”

To reach “The Lost Dog Walk” follow the brick path beside Wildfern. Check out the sky mosaic through the webbed roof of the pergola that arches above the water garden and tile creations in “Isabella Bird’s Garden. Recent mosaic art works have been installed in and around the garden. Explore the area and enjoy the fanciful creations.

Fun for the entire family can be found at Spatterdock. We hope to see you soon!
