My family and I have been vacationing in beautiful Sam Rayburn Lake for over 15 years. Not till 2007 did we decide to buy. We surely hope you enjoy your stay in our beautiful home.
Letty Ortiz purchased this house in 2007
Sam Rayburn Lake is a beautiful, serene and natural lake. The Army Corp. of Engineers maintains the lake and does not allow any permanent structures within 179 feet of the shore. So you will NOT see the clutter of boat houses, ramps, piers or boat docks. The people of East Texas are a friendly bunch. We have been vacationing in Sam Rayburn with our family and friends for close to 20 years before deciding on purchasing our property.
Things to Do in the Area: * Boating, kayaking, jet-skiing, waterskiing, fishing and swimming * Playing in the sand on the beach * Photograph the scenery, wildlife, birds, sunsets and water activity * A Country Club with 27 holes of golf, tennis and basketball is only 2 minutes away. * Shop for antiques, gifts, jewelry and clothing in the local towns * Go out with a local fishing guide
My family and I spent Memorial weekend at the lake house. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. The house is beautiful and has everything that you might need to make your stay enjoyable. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the awesome deck and really enjoyed the beach area. We will definitely be returning!!
We spent the weekend with three adult couples. Even though a little cloudy we were able to play 18 holes of golf Friday and Saturday and put the boat in the afternoons. The property was well kept with ample parking for a trailered boat and two other cars. The view from back deck is breathtaking. We drank coffee and ate breakfast listening to the peaceful morning sounds. Great sandy beach, which is hard to find, for wade fishing, parking the boat and swimming. Casual dining at Stumps by marina and excellent Steaks and more at the Timbers Restaurant in the Rayburn County Club. A little something for everyone. The house is well appointed and has comfortable beds. Would love to come back with grandkids.
My family and I had ranted the lake house for the weekend, and upon arrival we were all amazed on how nice the house was, and not to mention the view! Just short walk down the yard to the lake was great, I was able to park my boat right at the beach, and all the neighbors were friendly. I highly recommend this cabin, and will surely be staying there again.
I have lived in Texas all of my life and never knew we had such a treasure as Lake Sam Rayburn. And then, to find this BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE home was another treasure found. My family, inclusive of my husband, 17-year-old son, 20-year-old daughter, her 20-year-old boyfriend and my brother, THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay at this home. Not only was it all updated in the bathrooms, appliances and decor, such a comfortable home was created in this house that made us never want to leave. The view from the deck from morning to sunset was always ASTOUNDING and PEACEFUL! All of the amenities offered with kayaks, canoe, floats, boat tube ride plus more was such a treat, too. Our son kayaked almost every day to the nearby islands. Yes, ISLANDS, in this beautiful, clean pristine lake. Everything you could want or need was provided by this home and homeowners. The only problem I have is that I cannot get our family back there quick enough, but we will DEFINITELY be back. Thank you to these homeowners for offering every hospitality we could have asked for. What a gift you give others by sharing this lovely home and beautiful location with the rest of the world. MANY, MANY THANKS!
We couldn't have ask for a better summer getaway. The lake was beautiful, and the sunsets are even better.
On day two we rented a pontoon boat and took a four hour tour to the north side of the lake. (I could get use-to this lifestyle very quickly). It was sad to have to leave on Sunday.
Thanks for letting us use your Lakehouse.
A really nice cabin/home large enough for a large group of people. Extremly well furnished from the kitchen to the bath rooms to the outside. There are lots of toys, watercrafts, life jackets, folding chairs and just everything you could want. We even used very nice tube to tow behind the pontoon boat. The adults and kids had a blast. Boats can be rented a short distance from the cabin. Beautiful sunsets from the porch. We are having a wonderful time and will hate to leave.
