FAMILY REUNION, WEDDING, COUPLES WEEKEND - AN ENTIRE EAST TEXAS LUXURY COMPOUND

Lake Bob Sandlin House Rental Photos and Description

90 mins from Dallas: 5 Bedrooms + Bunk House + pool + Gazebo + Lake - sleeps 18

Reunion, Anniversary, Wedding, Family Retreat or Couples Weekend - enjoy an entire compound! Originally a bed & breakfast - The Veranda is a glorious 1920’s Victorian Home (and accompanying bunkhouse) that served as the areas most posh, upscale B&B for many years. Wealthy patrons from Dallas with lake homes on the beautiful Lake Cypress Springs referred to the “Mansion of Mt. Vernon” as the finest dining and one of the most picturesque setting in East Texas. Having just undergone a $1m+ restoration, the retreat is a 70 acre paradise incorporating a sanctuary of rest and relaxation as well as activities galore. Originally envisioned and operated by Robert Whiteside & Warren Butler, new owners Mark and Kelly Bunting made cautious (yet significant) upgrades to this famous property during the 2010-2012 season. The result is a fabulous retreat true to original intentions of the earlier owners, yet greatly enhanced and expanded. Just 100 miles due East on I-30 from Dallas – this paradise of tranquility and peace feels more like 1000 miles away!

Featured June 9, 2013 on ABC's Designing DFW segment (see video below).

Amazing Beautiful Place

We celebrated here with our family & friends for our daughters 16th birthday. This property is amazing! No words can fully describe how beautiful & relaxing it is there! There is so much to do & so much space for everyone to relax & have a good time. We hope to go back again & have a family reunion. It's a great place for a large group of people! There are many rooms. A great house with 5 bedrooms for adults & then a separate house with 8 bunk beds & another apartment upstairs w/two queen beds for either adults to supervise or more kids. Just a great place for families to go together with their children & have a wonderful time while both age groups can do something different & stay in separate quarters. The fishing was amazing on the privately stocked pond. We highly recommend staying here! We had a great time!

Great Time!

We stayed at The Veranda with a larger group and had the time of our lives. The place is incredibly beautiful and there’s so much to do with kids in particular. The fishing for my young son was such an incredible experience. We caught a lot of fish fast and had such a great time. From 4-wheelers, to the full length basketball court, to the terrific pool – the place is really great for families or adult groups alike. The place was in terrific shape and the owners left us a guest basket with snacks and wine – just first class across the board. It was only an hour and a half drive from Dallas too. We will definitely be back!

New Years

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
Our group of 4 families have been celebrating New Years together for the past 17 years. We typically rent a large home or ranch property in the Texas Hill Country. We were thrilled to find The Veranda, which is located in the piney woods of East Texas, much closer to our hometown of Dallas and a completely different feel than the Texas Hill Country. As our families have grown, it has become more and more difficult to find a luxury home that can accommodate 16 of us, and still be within a few hours of Dallas and yet feel like a true getaway.

The house is amazing, the furnishings all first class. The owners have been featured in numerous magazines for their designer touches. Each of the couples had their own king bedroom and bathroom. If you love to cook, the kitchen will not disappoint. And if you need to get a little work done remotely, there are plenty of private areas to do so.

We scored big with the bunk house. The kids were blown away that they had their ‘own place’. And this isn’t your average bunk house. It is loaded.

We fished the private lake (which is just steps from the back porch) and caught more fish in an hour than we ever have on a guided fishing trip. It was Winter so the kids didn’t swim in the pool or spend much time on the basketball court or trampoline, but they had a blast riding ATV’s, hanging around the fire pit, riding their bikes, walking the trails and exploring the woods. We even took the kids on their first hog hunt.

We cannot say enough about The Veranda. Absolutely stunning property. In our 17 years of renting over New Years, this property ranks #1…hands down. Take your camera and you will come home with some amazing photos.
