The main floor covered deck spans the width of the home and includes Southern style rockers & comfortable chairs with outdoor propane heaters to keep you warm when the weather gets cool. Downstairs, a large screened porch includes a porch swing, and treadmill that all overlook the lake.

About Ron Baker

This lovely home is owned by two families who have shared lake homes for the past twenty years. We love visiting the lake with our families, but when we can't use it we love having others enjoy the relaxing accommodations and great place for families to reconnect.

Ron Baker purchased this house in 2008

What makes this house unique

Great view of the lake, Deep Water. Great fishing off the dock. Fire Pit next to the lake, Waverunner lift so bring your own boat and waverunner.

Wonderful house for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect get away house! We had 5 people for a weekend get together. The house is clean, well appointed and well suited for our group of 5 to cook, catch up and enjoy television. The internet is very fast and the TV watching options are numerous. The grounds around the house and boat dock are very pleasant.

Kitchen is well stocked, the bathrooms are clean, the beds are very comfortable and the hosts communication is excellent. I highly recommend this house for a large group, with 5 full bed rooms and 3 bathrooms it accomodates large groups very well.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an excellent vacation at this lovely home on Lake Jackson. Everything was perfect from the home to the lake. We are a family of boaters and spent most of our time skiing on the lake as well as swimming off the dock. The home is located in a quiet cove which is perfect for swimming. No boats zooming by you while you are in the water. The Lake was quiet during the week, we practically had it all to our selves for skiing and tubing. Saturday was very busy with lots of boats on the water. It was a good day for us to just chill on the dock and swim. The house is lovely and plenty of space for all. Loved the kitchen and we cooked all our meals there. They had everything you would need to cook a gourmet meal for the family. We loved the deck and had coffee and breakfast there everyday. I can't say enough about this house and the lake. We will definitely go back next year for another great week on the lake.

Excellent Home for a family retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home to rent. My family consisted of 14 and we all were comfortable at this three story house. I was pleasantly surprised by the interior of the home as it has been remodeled. The two full kitchens was a plus especially for cooking the Thanksgiving food and fixings. The view of the lake is breath taking. Waking up each morning and sipping on a cup of coffee while looking out the lake is something that I will remember for a long time. The paddle boat and canoe were fun. The kids and adults enjoyed it. Making a fire in the pit each evening by the lake while the sun goes down was awesome. It is so quiet there. You don't here a beep. I would highly recommend this home for a large group. You will create memories that will last a life time.

Fantastic Experience.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for my family for my granddaughters wedding. As I was making the cake, the two kitchens were perfect. I found the house not only comfortable and convenient, but also quite well equipped. Beautiful setting and very relaxing atmosphere. Our family included a five month old baby, so the apt downstairs was perfect. Cannot wait for a return visit so I can rent and enjoy this place again. Glenda. Houston, Texas

Family birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family trip to this lovely home on the lake. There was plenty of room for all of us and all of the "extras" that you don't usually find in a rental home. We had fun around the fire pit, telling stories and playing silly games - in other words, making memories. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We look forward to being there again and again.

Wedding day rental

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us! We needed a house big enough for us and a couple of our friends and it was perfect. I loved the island in the kitchen-it gave me plenty of room to make their wedding cake. Hopefully we will be able to come back during the summer and enjoy the outside of the house too :)
