'SERENITY' - BEAUTIFUL LAKEFRONT RETREAT

Frankston House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Library, 4 Baths (Sleeps 9-10)

Relax at our beautiful new lake home with expansive yard on a private peninsula in Cobb Cove, Lake Palestine. Enjoy napping in the hammock, reading on the covered deck or downstairs porch, or taking a walk through the private neighborhood. Great fishing is available from your own private pier and the sunrise is breathtaking.

Our recommendation - particularly in fall, winter and spring: prepare a feast with the whole family and then settle in around the gas fireplace or out on the deck with the cool evening air and bright stars above.

*CHECK CALENDAR for AVAILABILITY*

The house is a perfect romantic retreat for a couple needing some time together. 3400 square feet of heated and cooled space is perfect for the family getaway or a small retreat.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • pets not allowed

We first bought this home with Knoxie's sister and brother-in-law and have loved creating family memories there. We love the beauty of East Texas and the piney woods and hope to have this retreat in our family for many years to come.

GREAT WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
Our family came to Serenity house for our annual weekend at the lake (6 adults and 4 children). We had an amazing time - a beautiful home with a great view of the lake, in a quiet cove with easy access to the main lake with our ski boat.

BEAUTIFUL LAKEHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Serenity 9/5/13-9/8/13 and it was gorgeous, peaceful and very relaxing. We brought a ski boat and launched it at a nearby marina and had the best time as a family. We had 3 couples and a couple of singles with us and we had a blast! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! Very Spacious!

GREAT LAKE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We came to this property for our annual family reunion - 6 adults + 4 children. The house is a split level with 2 master bedrooms (upstairs & downstairs) and 2 living areas. It was the PERFECT setup for our family. The property itself was spotless. The pictures online don't do it justice. The owner is very responsive and was easy to work with.

The dock is in great shape and there is a ladder that makes swimming in the lake very accessible. We also fished from the dock and caught quite a few really small fish (which excited the kids quite a bit!). The water level is terrific - not too deep and definitely plenty of water for swimming. We set a few chairs out on the dock and watched the kids splash & have fun. The cove where the property is located has almost no boat traffic, so it was quiet & peaceful.

I highly recommend this property. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we will likely make this a top pick for our get-together next year.

QUIET VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice mini-family reunion at Serenity. The house is very nice and was stocked with all the odds and ends that we found ourselves needing throughout the 4 days we were there. The inlet was very quiet, we barely heard any boats the entire time, only catching the occasional fishing boat trawling around. Someone decided that the neighboring dock needed to be disassembled while we were there, and the workers carried on into the night (we think their van got stuck trying to pull out an over-filled trailer) but nothing to ding the owners about. There aren't a whole lot of bathroom doors in the house, and the toilets are almost in the closets of the master suites (big spacious closets!), but there's plenty of space for modesty as well.
The kids liked the kayak, thanks for allowing us to use it!
