Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a very quite cove, the lake has access to a beach for fishing, four wheelers, bikes, shell hunting, bird watching, and also just a stroll on the beach. The lake has great fishing, boating, jet skiing, but the cove we are in is better for small boats and fishing. There is plenty of lake for the rest of water activity just outside the cove. The house is not right on the lake because this is a core of engineers lake and does not allow houses right on the water.

The lake house is 1600 square feet, built in the late 60's. The master bedroom is good size and has a queen bed with a fireplace, access to the master bathroom, with shower and tub, it also has access to the main sunroom. The second bedroom is also very nice, wood floor with a full size antique bed the main bathroom has just been remodeled with a new shower and wood floors and has access to the rest of the house.

The big sunroom has a flat screen TV and full size electric fireplace. The large room has plenty of room for just about anything. At one end is a trundle bed which can be made into a King-size bed, Queeen futone,leather couch, full size. There is lots of room. The kitchen, dining, entry closets and bathroom have just been remodeled with new wood floors installed along with a bar from the entry to the sunroom, this is a 1 acre property, which the back part is not accessible, but the house and the rest of the lot has plenty of yard that over looks the lake. There is a large gazebo for eating, watching the water and also watching the sun come up over the lake.There is a brand new deck on the side of the house that faces the water.

There is a gas grill. There are over 50 mesquite trees on the property. Very peaceful and quiet, just a great get away still close to everything. You are only a few miles from great antiquing, junking, sight seeing, water park in the summer. You are actually less that an hour from a Cowboys game, Stars game, and the Mavericks game, plus all of the great activities in downtown Dallas like Dealey Plaza, Six Flags and the large water park.

About Sharon Allen

I have a very busy job, which requires travel and the lake house is a great benefit to relax and enjoy.

Sharon Allen purchased this house in 2006

Why Sharon Allen chose Texas

I have always wanted a house by a lake and also some land to have my horse there. This lake has sandy beaches and is great to ride around the lake.

What makes this house unique

I love the quite the property supplies and also just being outside enjoying the weather and the view of the water.

Great Time at the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Little Elm. The house was nice and accommodated the whole family. We had my son and his two children and my sister and myself. Plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was well equipped. We had cable tv and internet services. We stayed mainly at the house because my grandchild has leukemia and was not well enough to do much outside. It worked out great. Thank you for letting us stay.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house is old so, if you can't live without all the modern amenities, this isn't the place for you [like a garbage disposal, dishwasher, flushing wipes and tampons down the toilet, and quiet central air conditioning (there are window a/c units that keep the house cool but they are pretty loud)]. BUT, if you want a beautiful spot on the the lake to relax, it's awesome! There are many trees, a gazebo with seating in the front yard looking toward the lake, which is just a short walk from the house, and boat rentals not too far away in Little Elm. For the price, it was a good stay.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying at this property. Right on the lake. We were working nights and not really there for vacation but if you like to fish this would be a great place. Sharon was so easy to work with and very accommodating. Definitely would stay here again. Thank you Sharon! It was a pleasure staying at your home and communicating with you

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This experience exceeded my expectations! Great view of lake from back porch and gazebo. Can watch sunrise as it comes across the lake. Quick walk to lakefront, any time. Pet the horses. (Carrot treats, okay - just remember to hand pieces flat on your palm. ☺ ) Easy access from I35E across lake bridge but NO through-traffic at locale. (Yea!) Even those using canes or walkers can get about easily and enjoy. Relaxing, traditional lake style retreat - with convenience of pizza delivery if you want it. Can't beat it!

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

This is an old pieced together house. The house was dirty inside an out. Years of cobweb build up. All heating is plug in heaters, which is a little frightening. Especially since the wiring is old. Kitchen is well stocked and everything is available for cooking and showering.

Another weird thing is that you have to pay a deposit? The owner shorted my deposit because I added 2 people to my stay. I had given her a heads up and she said it was "okay" with no mention of an additional charge. A deposit is normally intended for damages and cleaning. And we left the house cleaner than we found it. VERY DISAPPOINTED! Not worth the price either, not reasonable for the age and condition of the house.

Owner's Response: I have been renting this house for over 8 years and this is the only negative response, I think the guest was upset because she did not completely read the rental agreement or anything about the house, the house has been updated and new wiring was completed at that time. The house is professionally cleaned after each visit. They seemed to be having a great time while they were here.
