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!

We're 100 miles east of Dallas, 100 west of Shreveport and within minutes of Mineola, Gladewater and Jefferson with scores of antique shops, lakes, wineries and some of the best fishing, boating and motorcycle riding in the country! Lake Fork, Lake of the Pines, Lake Palestine, Lake Holbrook, Lake Winnsoro, Lake Gilmer, Lake Quitman are just minutes away. So spend a weekend on beautiful Lake Hawkins or spend a week and fish them all!

About Allen/Rhonda Sanders

Allen and Rhonda are semi-retired and live nearby within the community. Rhonda is artsy and creative. Allen loves to fish and ride his Harley. Both are very involved and active their local church and both love to make music and enjoy serving people.

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Allen/Rhonda Sanders chose East Texas

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.

Great stay at a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Two of my sisters and I stayed at this comfortable cabin out on Lake Hawkins. The Sanders were very hospitable in making sure they were ready for our arrival and we were fortunate to be able to introduce ourselves to Allen shortly after. The private dock for our use was excellent and the serenity of Lake Hawkins and the surrounding area was just what we needed for some family bonding time. We hope we'll be back again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Amy - sure enjoyed having you and your sisters out for a little detox. Now that you know where we are, we're expecting y'all back - ha. You're only a guest once - after that, you're family. Until next time...

5-Star

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for us....a retired couple looking for a break from the City. Everything very accommodating and well organized. The boat dock offers a screened-in area with a table/chairs/fan which makes it great for having a picnic on the lake.

It was everything we hoped for.
