When we were planning our trip to Portland Parish, we were looking for someplace central, but also a relaxing destination in its own right. Zion Country is exactly that. It’s a beautifully manicured, thoughtfully designed property surrounded with a variety of local flora and fauna, sitting atop a beautiful bay.

The cabins were private, clean, secure and had amazing views of the ocean. You can tell that Free-I spent many years perfecting his space – there are private spots for relaxation, a place to grab a drink and play dominoes, and a hammock right outside your cabin door.

Owen, Zion Country’s chef, and Free-I were both extremely friendly and offered wonderful suggestions for things to do in Long Road and the surrounding areas, including day trips to Reach Falls, Long Bay and Winnifred Beach, all highly recommended. It is a truly special place and we can’t wait to go back.
