About Jeanene

Gary & Jeanene Jensen are happy to offer this property for you to enjoy your vacation. We have been in the Information Technology business for many years, and have recently started our own IT consulting business. So, with all the travel we do for work, we have purchased our ideal lakefront property that we hope to enjoy fully in our retirement years. We live nearby, our daughter goes to a local school, and Jeanene's family and friends are all in this same general area. Jeanene is a native Texan, while Gary is Canadian born and moved from Canada in 1999 - he really moved to escape those nasty Canadian winters in Edmonton, AB, but didn't realize at the time that he was going from the freezer to the frying pan! The Houston weather took a little getting used to.

Jeanene purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jeanene chose Coldspring

We spent many months selecting what we thought was the perfect property for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We wanted a property that would offer the best lake views, lots of room to do outdoor activities, fish off the bulkhead, participate in lots of water sports, and enjoy nature in a quiet acreage setting. We believe this is indeed the perfect vacation spot!

What makes this cabin unique

The sunrise and like views are spectacular. You can sit in the Hot Tub and watch the birds fly over the lake. You can fish right off the bulkhead. You can have a morning coffee on the covered patio with lake view, listen to the wind blow through the many large trees on the property. It is peaceful, relaxing, fun and just an enjoyable spot in every way.

Miss this place!

  • 5 of 5

What a find this was! We actually stayed in Oct 2013 but the calendar didn't go that far back. Let me tell you, the fall is a GREAT time to stay here. Be sure to get up early and drink your coffee right on the water with the morning fog, the crane (we named him Niles "Crane") and maybe a daily devotional about God's beautiful creations. It's a great stay for rejuvinating your soul when the grit and grime of the city wears on you. The property and set up near the water is a dream for a getaway weekend. The outdoor living space and hottub were most loved. The updated decor, flooring, and appliances were appreciated and gave it a polished feel. But the quiet country charm is not lost either with the sprawling property, outdoor activities, and the tasteful country touches. I wish that I could come for another stay. It's priced right for what you get, but hasn't been in the budget since our stay in 2013. Wishing the homeowners all the best with this lovely property. I don't know that I could share it if I owned it!! So I appreciate them very much.

Sisters Weekend at Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Property is beautiful and well kept. Very clean and modern.

We are not likely to rent it again.

Suggestions to owner and management agency for improved experience:

the price on the agency site is misleading, for there is a mandatory cleaning fee and insurance costs added on. The nice audio/video system is difficult to figure out how to use, as was the hot tub. Manager didn't know how to operate hot tub either, but he called the manufacturer. Only problem, that took several hours and it was too late to use the tub by the time we got the answer. Better written instructions on how to use the appliances and features of the place would help. Also, the internet on wyfi kept dropping out. One of the bedrooms was un-useable due to loud noise all night.

Owner's Response: Greatly appreciate your feedback Susan, we strive to offer our guests the best experience possible, and we continue to make improvements based on guest input. Hot Tub operating instructions are now provided at the cabin, the Trash Compactor is foot operated - press down to open, lift up on the foot pedal to make it "compact" the trash. The Internet service was checked out with no issue found - we rely on our service provider and for the most part the service has been very reliable. TV / DVD / Cable remotes can sometimes be challenging if you are not familiar with the particular system or cable provider. For the most part you just need to ensure the input selection on the TV corresponds to HDMI setting for Cable and you are good to go. With regard to pricing, all our rates, fees and taxes are fully disclosed before booking your reservation. It seems that Susan was looking at the "average cost per night" and did not factor in the cleaning fee. If you do happen to have a question before booking, please drop us an e-mail or give us a call and we would be happy to answer any and all questions. We look forward to hosting many more delighted guests at Cabin on the Lake!

Military getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice and homey with utterly fantastic sunrise and sunset views across the river. Only an hour away from home yet we felt like we were miles away from work, stress, and city life. Husband and son had a few complaints regarding the bathrooms. In the master suite the commode was not properly sealed to the floor so when used it would pop up and down with a loud thump. And in the guest bathroom the water would not drain in a timely manner so had to wait several hours between showers. Other than those two minor things, I would say it was a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday stay. Hope to stay again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feed back! We were able to get the commode properly set and the drains cleaned out. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

We are on the western shores of Lake Livingston within the Sam Houston National Forest in Texas hill country 74 miles North & East of downtown Houston, 60 miles from IAH (George Bush Intercontinental Airport). We are 1 mile from Wolf Creek Park that offers a public boat launch, 3 miles from the prestigious Cape Royale Golf Club and only 10 miles from the quaint town of Coldpsring TX that offers local restaurant fare, antique shopping and trade days where local vendors offer their wares in a flea market type setting. If you need a full service marina, Browders Marina is only 17 miles away.

The Cabin is located just off of a curving, hilly road (FM 224) that is a scenic favorite for cycling enthusiasts. The rolling hills, trees and lush greenery make for a very pleasant bike ride or sight seeing drive.

A larger Urban center, the town of Lake Livingston, is just 30 miles away. Here you will find everything you need for an evening of dining out, shopping, or just getting the essentials from the local Walmart store.

If you are a history buff, San Jacinto County (named for the 1836 battle that ended the Texas revolution against Mexico), has numerous interesting sites nearby: Coldspring which is the county seat has an interesting history of two distinct towns (Old Town - built in the Gullies) and the new part built on the hill. The area is dotted with Historical markers and historic buildings like the Old Town first jail still stands today. Coldspring United Methodist Church is believed to be the oldest Methodist church in continuous use in Texas. Another church, Evergreen United Methodist, was organized in 1862, several years before the county was formed.

The Trapp-McClanahan house, built around 1880, is privately owned and Council Hill, also located on private property, was the home of Vernal B. Lea, brother of Mrs. Sam Houston.

On U.S. Highway 190 is Oakhurst, which was once a prosperous sawmill town named for Oakhurst, Okla., home of several lumber men who moved to Texas.

Three miles north of Oakhurst is Raven Hill, the one-time home of Sam Houston, the hero of San Jacinto. The hill got its name from an Indian name for Houston. Further up U.S. 190 from Oakhurst is Point Plank, which was originally named Point Blanc by a Frenchwoman who moved here from Alabama. The town was also called Point White and White Point.

About a mile south of Point Blank is Robinson Cemetery, where a large monument marks the grave of Gov. George Tyler Wood, who served from 1849 to 1851. Wood's grave was unmarked for more than a half-century until the monument was built.
