About the property

Lakefront: 2 - Bedrooms, 1 Bath Cottage Sleeps 6

This quaint, fully-furnished lakefront cottage is perfect for family vacations, guy's fishing retreats, girl's getaways, several 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 2-bedroom, 1 bath has everything you need to get outta town and forget about the 'real world' for a while. Both bedrooms have a Queen-size bed and the Queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area can accommodate a typical family or 3 couples. Watch the sun rise over the lake from the deck as you're enjoying your morning coffee. Enjoy 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, fishing boat, kayak or canoe rental for a complete lake experience!

About Allen/Rhonda Sanders

Allen and Rhonda Sanders love living in East Texas and living on Lake Hawkins. Married for over 40 years with 2 incredible daughters and 6 grand kids, we're still crazy in love with each other and love to see families slow down and reconnect with each other and sometimes that means getting out of town and getting away from it all. Technically, we're 'retired', but stay busy managing 7 vacation rentals - but it really is a labor of love. We love opening our hearts and homes to folks who need to just need to chill for a while. In her spare time, Rhonda enjoys all kinds of crafts, quilting and almost anything creative. Allen enjoys fishing and riding his Harley. They are both very active in leadership in their local church.

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Allen/Rhonda Sanders chose East Texas

We have lived on Lake Hawkins for over 11 years and just love it. So when our neighbor put her 2 lakefront cottages up for sale, it was a no-brainer us. We already had 1 vacation rental on Holly Lake Ranch and it seems like everyone wants to go to the lake for a getaway for a weekend, week or longer.

What makes this cabin unique

Overlooking beautiful Lake Hawkins, one of Texas' clearest and picturesque lakes, you'll be able to swim, fish or just lounge on the dock. Build a fire in the fire pit, relax on the deck or in the screened-in cabana. More than anything - just get out of town and get in touch with nature and with each other.

Very charming!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so adorable and there was a lot of attention to detail. Their communication before the trip was great and everything was set up for us when we got there - they even had some tunes playing when we arrived. The two queen beds were very comfortable, but the pullout sofa bed did leave some things to be desired (probably best for the younger folks). There were plenty of bath towels and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and cookware. I don't know much about the area, but the location was beautiful and the lake was so calm! Don't worry about your phones and electronics because you probably won't get a signal out here. Just bring a good book and some family and friends and enjoy yourself.

Overall it was a great stay. Thanks Allen!

Must see destination

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying here. We lost power to a storm the first night, and Allen came by the next day to check on us. He recommended a great place for breakfast in Mineola. Ended up seeing him and Rhonda there. They generously paid for breakfast and gave us sage advise on shopping options. The house was beautiful and well stocked and the neighborhood is friendly and clean. The view of the lake from the deck is amazing and even better from the dock. We took the boat out and had a great time exploring the lake. And we were able to bring our dogs.

Perfect escape for our little family. Wouldn't change a thing. It's amazing how quickly lazy summer days at the lake can fly by, can't wait to return.

Car: recommended

Lake Hawkins is a very clear, spring-fed lake (same aquifer the Ozarka and Nesltle Waters get their spring water). Beautiful winding roads and hills - perfect for walking, bicycling or motorcycling. Great nature-watching, including hawks, bald eagles, ducks, grey herrings - all kind of wild birds, deer, foxes, squirrels and rabbits. Good bass, crappie and bream fishing.
