Overview

East Texas Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom with great view of the lake with dock , 1 bath, sleeps 4

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.

A clean and peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay! You will love this little cabin as soon as you enter the door. It is so comfortable, well kept and clean. Everything you need is available. There is a grocery store in Hawkins if you prefer to get settled before grabbing some goodies to eat. If you have children with you the play ground and spray park in Hawkins is very nice. Also, the Caldwell Zoo and Discovery Science Place in Tyler are well worth the short drive and entry fees.

We created so many memories of swinging on the deck watching the birds and squirrels, playing in the sand at the little beach that is only a couple minutes away, relaxing in the screened cabana and fishing Lake Hawkins.

The owners are very friendly, approachable and helpful. Without a doubt or hesitation we recommend staying at one of their properties.

Fantastic Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay on Lake Hawkins this Fourth of July weekend. We had such a great time..... this is our second stay on the lake in one of Allen's Cabins... and they never disappoint.

This is such a hidden little gem... very clean... well stocked...

we especially enjoyed sitting on the deck in the mornings drinking our coffee and watching all the birds, hummingbirds, and squirrels come to the feeder to have breakfast with us.

It is so convenient to have a boat dock right across the street making it easy to get on and off the lake...

and there is plenty of parking for your trailer and cars.

I would highly recommend this property.

We will for sure be back!!!

Thanks for everything!

Candace, Rodney, and Olivia

Our dogs Cooper and Beau also had a great time :)

Fantastic!!! beautiful and peaceful...

  • 5 of 5

This small cottage is so relaxing and a fun place to stay. It is extremely clean and superbly decorated. The views and sounds of the wildlife in the surrounding trees is very calming. Owners, Allen and Rhonda are attentive, God fearing people and are there for you at all times. We cannot thank them enough for all of their kindness and generosity during our stay. Their properties are immaculate and obviously very cared for...it is just lovely. A lot of hard work has been done for these cottages to be the most attractive on the lake. I am overwhelmed at the peacefulness here so I am returning in Sept. Just can't wait to stay at these properties again and again. Don't want to sound over dramatic, but I would hope that others will experience their delight by staying here. The other highlight is to be blessed just by meeting these two wonderful people.

Thank you again Allen and Rhonda! See you soon.
