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 Hawkins

We had lived on Lake Hawkins for over 10 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 lived here, so we can give our guests everything they need. We are available, but never intrusive.

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. More than anything - just get out of town and get in touch with nature and with each other.

Loved the place

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay with them. Rented the 1 bed the first time . Both places are great . AC worked beautifully on the hot August weekend . Rented the pontoon boat for the weekend and had a blast . Had the family down 1 day and they decided they liked this better than our annual Schlitterbahn trip. Lake is gorgeous, and has not had more than a handful of boats on it either weekend we were there . Allen was very fair on the gas charge for 2 days of boat use . The whole family will definitely be back for a weekend boating and relaxing . This is my wife's favorite place to go now .

The perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to find a vacation for our family of 5 (plus 3 dogs) that was completely stress free, gave ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and was not crowded with people....this was perfect!!! Lake Hawkins is the best kept secret in Texas! Beautiful lake with clear and calm water, plenty of room to play, very few people and a pretty shoreline. Now for the cabins (my parents stayed in Cabin 1) they were so extremely clean and well put together, I couldn’t believe it. The night we got there some water got spilled on the floor so I grabbed a paper towel and told my wife “we will get to see just how clean this place is” and I wiped up the water on the floor and the paper towel was still white. We agreed our floors at home aren’t that clean! There was very little traffic on the water or on the surrounding roads and was always very quiet. Had no worry leaving our boat tied up at the dock. Allen is awesome, very nice and very helpful. Anything we needed, he helped. We are already talking about going back. Highly recommend these cabins!

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.
