We were looking for a peaceful cabin on the lake to get away from it all, and this fit the bill perfectly!!
Upon arrival we could see the lake as the backyard view - gorgeous! Nestled in the trees with a wide long lawn, this cabin sits between another cabin property and some long term residents. We lucked out - no other renters in the cabin next door during our stay. (The other neighbors are super friendly, and far enough away to afford you privacy). The cabin was exactly as depicted in the photos, and absolutely immaculate! It is stocked with everything---linens, dishes, utensils, even a washer & dryer which we ended up being very happy we had. The pier is fantastic! Just be sure to take everything down there that you may need (drinks, fishing gear etc) because are flights of stairs and the yard to cross. It's not super far, but in the hot sun lugging your belongings can get wearing! We used the heck out of that pier!!! It does have rope lighting; not enough for night fishing, but plenty to sit under the stars. We swam and fished to our hearts content!
Speaking of fishing, this was hubby's favorite part! We caught perch, bass, catfish, and alligator gar. Fishing was tricky - there was sooooo much shad!! Even so, we still caught plenty!! (We can only imagine how the fishing is during other seasons!) There is a close bait shop that carries some grocery items, gas and has a short order cook. Grocery items are a bit pricey, but the folks are super friendly. Hemphill has a bigger Brookshire Brothers grocery store and some mom and pop stores. There's also a great seafood joint just inside the Louisiana border. Do note: this isnt an area to go to if you are looking for lots of nearby attractions. If you want to be in a secluded country area with your own private pier to fish and swim---this is the place! You'll love the scenary and the quietness!
To the owners: thank you for sharing your cabin with us!! We created memories here that will stay with us forever. Nights of catching fireflies (so many!), swimming for hours, fishing, sitting around the campfire, and enjoying being in the country.....this was EXACTLY what we wanted!!! Thank you!!!
