Acorn Timbers is a lake front vacation rental on beautiful Lake O' the Pines. Fish, swim, bring your boat or rent one near by. Shop in historic Jefferson or enjoy the casinos in Shrevport. Or just relax and enjoy the sunsets, deer, and birds like our piliated woodpeckers. All you need to bring is your food and clothes.
For the last two vacations Paw Paw and I have taken the grands on the vacations of their choosing. This year we decided to spend a little quiet time to ourselves and a little closer to home. This location was PERFECT! We fished everyday- starting at daybreak, resting through the heat of the day then back at it around sunset. We got some beautiful sunset photos from the dock during our stay and the fishing was wonderful.
We stood on the deck each evening and watched deer as they visited us and the adjoining properties. There were even a couple of small fawns with the group of ten or so deer who seemed to have very little fear as they watched us watching them between their frolicking and snacking.
The cabin was very well maintained and true to its description. Everything we needed as far as kitchen items was available. It was even stocked with plenty of laundry, bathroom and kitchen sundries (although we brought our own).
Even though the owners were out of town, they provided us with a contact person who was very nice and helpful in answering our questions. He even found us some life vests to use in the canoe or paddle boat if we chose to go out.
One evening we road through town and visited the spillway, surrounding area and Lone Star. We didn't eat out at all because we had brought along more than enough food for the stay. Between this and our trips to obtain live fishing bait, our activities were limited to the dock on the lake and the football games! Very restful and calming indeed.
We have told all our family and co-workers about this rental unit and have given them the website address. Thanks Phil for the wonderful home away from home and an atmosphere that definitely what we were looking for. Hopefully we will get to spend another "backyard" vacation in your rental and bring the grands along.
Beautiful spot, easy access on a good road, friendly owners, comfortable bed. 20 minutes to fun little town of Avinger with neat stores and great hometown steakhouse. 30 minutes to Jefferson with tons to do. We took the mule-drawn carriage ride - fantastic. Cabin is clean and in good condition. Plenty of seating for a big group. We sat on the deck and watched the deer in the front yard and sat on the dock and watched the pelicans and fall foliage. Fantastic!
Only less-than-perfects: It's not really secluded like it appears in the photos. Owners live next door, you're sort of surrounded by their outbuildings. The heater/AC is terribly confusing...well, really it was just the explanation of how to operate it that was confusing. Anything that complicated needs to be written down. It was so noisy that it woke us up, so we turned it off anyway and just used extra blankets. So, pretty much no complaints.
We will definitely stay again.
I took the wife, kids and dogs for a last minute getaway and we had a blast! The cabin is well-furnished, everything worked, the swimming was great, close to Jefferson for some day excursions, highly recommended
We rented this cabin for a girls' weekend retreat and I have to say it was everything we could have wanted and more. An excellently stocked kitchen (spices, cooking supplies, etc), clean and comfortable beds and just an overall feeling of down home comfort.
I have already recommended this property to family and friends and though we didn't partake in much of the area's attractions, I can say that as I walked around the neighborhood...yes even the massive hills...I was still in heaven!
Our First real family vacation was just amazing thanks to Phil and Margaret Ball. We had a wonderful time. The view was amazing from our deck. Fishing on the dock was filled with many memories for our kids. Phil and Margaret were very helpful and made our stay that much more memorable.
Our family couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and relaxing funfilled week than the one we had at Acorn Timbers. Our hosts were gracious and helpful. The home was beautiful and spacious. The fishing was abundant! It was quiet and relaxing. We all enjoying fishing swimming boating and rest! WE will be back for a return visit! Thank you Phil and Margaret for sharing this slice of Heaven with us.
