This quaint, fully-furnished lakefront cottage is perfect for family vacations, guy's fishing retreats, girl's getaways, a couple of couples or a romantic getaway with your honey. Overlooking one of the clearest, spring-fed lakes in Texas (the same aquifer that Ozarka and Nestle gets their spring water feeds Lake Hawkins), this 1-bedroom, 1 bath has everything you need to get outta town and forget about the 'real world' for a while. The bedroom, with a Queen-size bed and the Queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area can accomodate a small family or 2 couples. Watch the sun rise over the lake from the deck as you're enjoying your morning coffee. Enjoy our screened-in cabana, private boat dock for securing your boat, fishing, swimming and sun-bathing and lots of room to play, walk, run, cycle, motorcycle or just chill. A public beach at Lake Hawkins County Park is down the road, just a few minutes away. You’ll want “our place” to be your “your place” for your next intimate getaway. Ask about our pontoon boat rental for a complete lake experience!

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this cabin in 2012
We have lived on Lake Hawkins for over 10 years in a fabulous log home and my neighbor decided to sell her little weekend place. So with a little TLC and my wife's creativity, we fashioned this great little cottage into something that looks like it belongs on a Montana river or off the coast of Maine. Its pitched ceiling, exposed beams and a tastefully-decorated fishing motif, just feels like you're miles from everything.
Cottage One is a lovely cabin for up to four people. It is well furnished with everything needed for a nice relaxing visit.
The owners were very accessible from inquiry about the propriety, all through the visit and even on the day of departure still seemed genuinely intent on us relaxing and enjoying our stay. They responded quickly to messages and answered all of my questions.
The view from the front porch is wonderful whether enjoying the lake or watching the birds and squirrels. The dock allocated for the cottage provided a screened in sitting area as well as a very nice bench swing for fishing or just enjoying the lake.
One only needed to bring food and beverage; all dishes and cookware were available as well as linens and supplies. The DVD library was a nice touch in addition to cards and books.
The property is well maintained and I can comfortably recommend this to others seeking a nice get away.
Cottage was really clean and prepared. Looks "much better" than the pictures on the site which rarely happens. Allen and Rhonda work hard to keep up with all maintenance, are very gracious hosts and accommodating. Went to relax and just do a little fishing off the dock, so this fit the bill perfectly. We might peruse the pontoon rental next time around to explore this beautiful little lake. Hummingbirds, cardinals, tall trees, gentle breeze, all make for a great experience. I would highly recommend, and will book again myself. One of the best deals on the site and a short easy drive from the DFW area. See you next time around....
Very nice, clean and updated house. Very spacious for a 1 bedroom and had a great layout. Loved the screened-in cabana right on the lake! We enjoyed our stay and will be back.
We enjoyed our four days on the lake, and this cottage was the perfect place to stay. It was clean, well designed and furnished, and has great views of the lake. We spent most evenings at the cabana watching the light on the water, the egrets making their way to their nests for the night, and sometimes a heron. The location is close to Hawkins for necessities and convenient to Tyler if you want to shop or see the sights. We liked the nearby Italian restaurant and the restaurant in town. We plan to be back.
My family had a wonderful time staying at Cottage I recently. Our two dogs enjoyed the water very much and my boyfriend and I had such a great time. The lake is just a walk across a street and down a little hill. It was very close and the dock and screened in deck were amazing. We went to the local grocery store and stocked up so we didn't have to leave (kitchen was fully stocked with all cooking utensils we needed)! There is also a little Italian Restaurant close by and their pizza was amazing!
The reviews are correct - zero cell service. But that is exactly what we needed - a little R&R. WiFi and cable were a little spotty, but we didn't mind.
Rhonda and Allen were wonderful hosts. Each time they drove by and saw us on the dock, they stopped by to make sure everything was up to our standard (which were far exceeded). We cannot wait to return!
Me and my wife stayed in the property for 7 days. Upon arrival we were greeted Buy Allen and his wife and they were very hospitable. We had no issues during our state and enjoyed it very very much. We rented a boat from Allen and had a very nice time. I would recommend this cabin to anyone who wants a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of City Life and I will be back again to rent this cabin.
Caldwell Zoo and Discovery Place in Tyler (25 mi), winery with live jazz on weekends, great antiquing, Good restaurants and grocery shopping.
