Our family just spent a long weekend at this property and Mr. Berry couldn't have made it more perfect for us.
The layout of the cabin, the location, the game barn, the dock, the play equipment for kids, the fire pit, the covered porch, and all the beautiful property to run around on. The scenery was breathtaking and upon driving down the lane, we all immediately relaxed.
The cabin was equipped with everything we could have wanted or needed. It was clean and well maintained and made us all feel like we were home. It is our hope to return to this property as an annual family vacation.
Mr. Berry was quick to answer his phone when we had a question, and extremely helpful and kind.
Crystal his housekeeper also, was quick to respond with information and tips before we headed out.
The only draw back for us was, we didn't stay long enough.
We have just returned from a three night stay at the Log Cabin. It was absolutely remarkable and more than anticipated even though the description and former reviews were glowing. There were 4 adults and 5 young people ages from 9-14. They loved the grounds and Mr. Berry allowed us to bring a golf cart so they played Uber from the house to the dock. They went fishing and we had two small kayaks we brought for them which they loved. They stayed busy throughout our stay. The adults participated in water activities but also spent time sitting on the porch watching the sunset as well as a storm move through the area.
I cannot say enough good things about this venue. Mr. Berry is an excellent host and was available when I called to ask a question. The house was super clean and every appliance was of the highest quality. I highly recommend this venue and hope to use it again.
Planned as a family vacation and to look for any interesting waterfront property to purchase for our own recreational use. First stay in this area, for our all adult family plus one 10- yr old granddaughter. We had a late evening arrival but still light out, but finding the place for some members was a little tricky after 10 pm in rain showers. The opportunity to have onsite laundry facilities was a bonus for wet clothes and towels. For people who like a clean rural lake, fishing, boating, swimming, outdoor exploring and indoor fun games like pool table, shuffleboard, pacman in separate game barn to pass the time. It is all here! The well equipped cabin is spacious as well as the 10 acre property, it sits on. We all felt quite at home in the cozy cabin. Covered porches with outdoor ceiling fans, lake breezes and trees offer comfortable shade when heat indexes reach 110. Sitting on the porch swing early mornings, seeing the sun rise and listening to birds chirping while sipping coffee was a favorite daily thing to do! Nightly fishing on the pier and boat slip under twinkling stars, moonlight and pier lights reflecting on water waves was enjoyed well into the wee hours of the morning sometimes until that catch is done. We had one fish fry night. The outside smoker came in handy for cooking a delicious duck that we brought frozen from home. We also had leg of lamb and a seafood jambalaya another evening. Spaghetti was a hit our first night. I brought my own slow cooker (did not have to, because owner has one in cabinet) and used it once for a tender pulled pork night. I have to admit for first time in 30 years, we over packed. Many of the things, like hair dryer, grill tools, cooking utensils, and many other things brought from home was readily available in the cabin. Typically, most rentals do not come as well supplied as this one did. Some family members went shopping for groceries or other necessities at HEB and Walmart about 20+ miles away. Closer to the cabin, we picked up the best 99 cents purchase of a must have for any lake side cabin...a mostly useful red fly swatter at the Richland Chambers Hardware store at 381 FM 416. The cabin has an upright freezer and was a good place to keep bags of ice. On our last night, we cleaned and packed up and did not want to mess up the kitchen, so we went out for takeout and found some really great tasting freshly made pizza unexpectedly from The Store, a red wood front mini market-gas station,heading east on 416.
This was our 3rd stay at the cabins. We had five families - adults with 7 grandchildren. We loved all of the activities - fishing, game barn, porches, outdoor grilling, fire pit, etc. This was a special year because we celebrated our granddaughter's 15th birthday. We decorated the game barn and had a special and fun party. We caught lots of fish on the dock and had a fish fry (from a previous fishing trip). John had added several new appliances, etc. and an a/c unit on one of the cabins. He is always improving the inside and outside of the beautiful property. We have rented several lake houses in the past but these cabins are the best. Thank you, John, for sharing your wonderful property and cabins.
We had 3 families rent both cabins and could not have had a better time. The kids, ages 5-11, put down their electronics and played outside or in the game barn, without being forced to do it. They loved being able to roam the property, experiencing a new adventure daily. We brought our boat & a canoe, which got a lot of use. The adults rotated between the fire pit, front porch, game room, dock, and hammock, making sure we made the most of everything the property has to offer. Both of the homes were wonderfully furnished and we appreciated how well stocked everything was. You can tell the owners put a lot of thought and care into making this as easy as possible on their guests. We also loved the great beds & high quality sheets. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. We have rented many properties from Home Away and this one is in a league of its own. We look forward to visiting again soon.
Located on the south side of Richland Chambers Lake - Located between Corsicana and Fairfield approximately 5 miles east of I45. This property is located 1 1/2 hours south of Dallas and 2 1/2 north of Houston.
