I grew up in Dallas and in the early 60's and now I currently live in Heath, Texas just east of Dallas. My parents purchased this property before the lake had water in it, but the lake filled rapidly. In my early years and into my teens I grew up going to the lake on the weekends. Through the summer I spent my time swimming, fishing and water skiing.

In my early adult years getting married, having children, working and growing a family and having life of my own, I was caught up living in the city life, so I quit going to the lake for a long period of time. Much later when I began to return it was difficult at first just to slow down, relax and get into lake and country living. Once you arrive, it doesn't take very long to get back into that life again. Today I can easily hang all the stresses of work and fast paced city living on all the bridges coming here. There is nothing better than the peace, serenity and stress free life that the country and lake living have to offer, even if it's just for a weekend. By sharing Southern Comfort, I want you to experience it too!

R. Fred Knowles purchased this house in 1962

Cedar Creek Lake was created in 1964 as a water reservoir for Tarrant County and is one of the very few lakes in Northeast Texas that allows property ownership of the waterfront with the ability to have your own private beach area, docks and boathouse. Cedar Creek Lake has also been recognized as one of the best places in the country to live for retirement.

We are a privately owned property. Being a private lakefront property our beach is owned. We also allow the use of fireworks, unlike a homeowners addition or a homeowners association controlled property.

New for 2013, the entire exterior of the property has received a complete makeover undergoing both major and minor repairs, new paint and landscaping. The pictures you see on all the websites were taken as recently as April 15th, 2013.

In the pictures you can see our outside theme. We decorate the grounds year around for all of our guests staying at Southern Comfort at no extra charge. Spring, Summer, Fall, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Easter, Valentines, Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Years weeks and weekends.

If you have some sort of 'special' occasion to celebrate such as a surprise birthday, anniversary or honeymoon and need personalized decorations, just specify and we can provide you with a quote.

Inclusive of all the remodeling this year we have decided to do a couple of other new things for our guests. First off we are offering to all our clients a $500 damage deposit waiver. When clients who book with us and return the property back to us in great shape will have there future deposit requirements waived on your next stay. Our goal, to attract a group of long term responsible clients that wish to share our lake home with us for many years to come. This offer can end at any time without notice.

Secondly is our check in and out times.....well we threw them out. On the day of check in you can arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. and leave as late as 8:00 p.m. on the day of departure. That is like giving our clients an extra day for free. We call this the Southern Comfort way of vacationing.

There is local boat rental through our neighbors at Cherokee Landing. We offer guided boat tours, knee boarding, water skiing, and tubing excursions and lessons that are available only for our guests staying at Southern Comfort on Cedar Creek Lake. Ask for pricing details.

First of all, I would like to apologize for just now getting around to this! My family and I stayed at Southern Comfort last Father's Day (2013) and truly enjoyed our stay!! We fit 6 adults and 5 children very nicely. The kitchen and living room open concept made it very easy to do what we love best...cook and visit with family! The kitchen was fully equipped and made it easy to feel right at home. The back porch overlooking the lake is beautiful morning or night. We also enjoyed being able to bring our 2 dogs with us and watching play in the "football size" yard! We have so many great photos of the kids and dogs on that beautiful lawn. :) Fred is absolutely wonderful to work with! He has thought of everything possible to make your stay more comfortable. The large fans are a huge plus and made our stay very comfortable! We would definitely visit again. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Family Thanksgiving gathering was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Our family of 5 adults and 3 small dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay for the Thanksgiving holidays. The house was perfect for the group and had everything we needed. The lake was low but the scenery was beautiful and the weather cooperated so that we had a fire in the fireplace and enjoyed walks and as the weather warmed we sat on the beautiful porch in the rocking chairs and listened to the sounds of nature! Our family wants to return next year! The owner, Fred, was very helpful in answering our questions. I have told a number of friends about Southern Comfort and how great it is for a close getaway from Dallas. It was everything we saw in the photos and more!

A Beautiful Place

  • Submitted: Oct 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
My stay at Southern Comfort on Cedar Creek Lake was delightful, fun, comfortable and relaxing. The owner was very helpful and accommodating from the beginning to the end of my final preparation. The photos of the property did not do it any justice, to see it in person was unbelievable. The property was immaculate, well maintained with ALL the amenities a family would need. My family didn't need to bring nothing but their clothes. And even thought it rain two of the three days we were there we still enjoyed the place. I am already recommending this property to friends and other family members. My family wants to make it a family tradition to come to Southern Comfort each year for a family retreat!
