Miss Kitty's Lake House on the Cove, Lake Palestine

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,400 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Spacious 4 bedroom 4 bath home perfect for groups of all sizes. This home is great for family get-togethers, vacations or just a great get-away for a couple for the weekend. Pricing will vary based on number of guests, affordable for 2 to 10 guests. Bring your own boat or rent. Huge grassed yard between the house and lake is wonderful and loved by the birds, an occasional squirrel, and has worked perfect for weddings and family reunions. Take your coffee 100 feet to the dock, sit and enjoy the egrets, ducks and geese that swim by or watch the fish jumping, breaking the glass surface of the water. There is a nice boat dock with covered sitting / fishing platform that extends out into the lake. Great for fishing, swimming and tying up your boat, just down from the house. We have a second boathouse dock that can also be used (boat docks are shared by the two houses I have on the 2 acre property, keeping the open feel).

The house is fully equipped for your stay, with property managers close by if you have any last minute needs. Entry gate insures privacy and comfort as you relax on the porch, on the upper deck, on the dock or the patio near the bird houses nearby.

This lake house is not a 5 star resort. If you are from Dallas I would strongly recommend you look elsewhere for accommodations.

There is another 3 bedroom house on the property that I fondly call "The Dallas House", granite countertops, hardwood floors, etc. Other house on property is VRBO # 154454

About Robert Conner

I have 3 children and we have had a great time with family and friends at the lake.

Robert Conner purchased this house in 2005

Why Robert Conner chose Texas Lakes

We felt that this location was great for spending time with family and friends. This is a lake house so it isn't perfect. I have been in the process of replacing all windows, floors and plan to redo kitchen and bathrooms this upcoming winter.

What makes this house unique

It's great to take a cup of coffee and sit out on the dock and relax. It's also nice to just lower the boat into the water and take a cruise, do some fishing, boat over to the Lakeside Grill for breakfast or lunch. The cove is a no wake area protecting fish and wildlife habitat, great for kayak or canoes.

Great place for rest

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at Miss Kitty's Lake House. It was a peaceful getaway. The property was well equipped with what you need. It has 4 bedrooms that can sleep 2 in one and 3 in the other four, plus area to sleep downstairs for more. It also has four 3/4 bathrooms. Plenty of space for sleeping and cooking. Really enjoyed sitting outside with the firepit in the evening. Two things you may want to know about if you are considering the property: 1) there are a lot of stairs (as pictured), 2) the owner's other rental is on the same property. We did not run into the other people very often, so it wasn't a problem, but if you want to be isolated from the public, it isn't that. Nonetheless, we give it 5 stars because it was great for our purpose. Will consider renting again.

Big House fora Big Group

  • 5 of 5

The house was big enough for a large group and is well-stocked- from towels to utensils and magazines/games. The balconies were amazing, and it is just a few feet away from the shores of Lake Palestine. Together with the Guest House, the compound has a large outdoor space for kids and games. The boat house was awesome for fishing and Bob the owner was wonderful to work with. Thank you for a great weekend.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not say enough nice things about our stay. We rented both houses and it was perfect. Houses are well stocked and the view is absolutely gorgeous. Very peaceful and a getaway that allows you to spend quality time in a beautiful setting. The owner was absolutely the greatest to work with! Thank you for such a wonderful weekend!
