RELAX IN THE COUNTRY - LOG HOME - SURROUNDED BY 17 ACRES OF OAK TREES

Richland Chambers Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3br/3 bath beautifully decorated and furnished

Beautiful 2750 sq. ft. 3br/3 bath custom made secluded log home on 27 heavily wooded acres within easy driving distance of Dallas (75 miles) and Houston (145 miles), only twenty miles to Richland-Chambers reservoir and 10 miles to Fairfield Lake and State Park. Sleep for six with one king and two queen beds. The perfect getaway for a couple or family. Huge open living area, Viking commercial kitchen with all the dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc. you would ever need, huge master bath with walk-in shower as well as second bath with an antique claw foot tub and a third full bath in the upstairs loft. Two fireplaces - den and master bedroom. Commercial ice maker, second refrigerator, and washer/dryer in mudroom. Three televisions (one with surround sound), DVD player, Direct TV, Wii game center with games, Netflix, and wireless internet access. Excellent cell phone coverage with either AT&T or Verizon.

Enjoy the wrap around porches with abundant seating, two porch swings, a hammock, screened in area, and six ceiling fans. Sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage in the cool, relaxing atmosphere. Huge trees provide abundant shade in any weather. Enjoy the wildlife (deer, squirrels, and raccoons) which you visits the yard just about any morning and evening. As quiet and peaceful as any place you will find.

Meet with family and friends roughly half-way between Dallas and Houston. This is a spectacular location for a family gathering at Christmas, Thanksgiving, or other holiday. Kitchen seating for up to twelve people. Arrangements can be made for more if desired. This home is also the perfect place for a private romantic weekend (or longer).

This is my custom-built dream home which I personally decorated, furnished, and landscaped. I love my home and want to share it with others who will love it as much as I do. Please contact me by text or e-mail

Iva York purchased this house in 2004

I built this home where it is because it was the most beautiful piece of property I could find within easy distance of a major metropolitan area.

Quite, relaxing, secluded, and gorgeous. Easy to get to from Dallas, Houston, Waco, Tyler or Austin.

Great house, terrific porch, great kitchen!

We just returned from a two night stay at this house and enjoyed it thoroughly. We found it extremely clean and extremely functional with a terrific porch and a great professional-quality kitchen that facilitated our making some pretty darned good meals. The photos of the property are quite representative of what we actually found when we arrived. The two first floor bedrooms range from large to very large and have very comfortable beds that led us to sleep later than expected. The upstairs bedroom housed four teens pretty comfortably. The bathrooms are lovely and there is a very functional mudroom that can house immense quantities of groceries in extra refrigerator/freezers and/or permit you to do laundry. The house is thoroughly decorated in a manner that clearly reflects the tastes of its owner and a lot of antique shopping over the years. The grounds are large, making the property private and quiet even in winter when the trees are bare. The Internet works very well. The location is excellent. Far enough from I-45 not to hear freeway noise but close enough to get to the Fairfield grocery store quickly on paved roads and to make the trip an easy one from Houston or Dallas.

Only two minuses we can really think of: (1) some of the decorating may not be to everyone's taste and (2) a feature of the kitchen is that the stove and countertops are considerably higher than "American standard," which creates incredible storage space but can make matters a little difficult for people of below average height or someone with a disability.
