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.

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!

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
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.
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.
It's a great place to do nothing. If you're doing something you're doing too much! Wonderful host. Cute as can be cabin. It's our third visit. The lake is beautiful.
Loved the Netherlands decorations inside. I felt very comfortable and relaxing while staying. I will definitely do it again, if I have a chance!
Everything you would want in a lake cottage. Very comfortable.
It's a great place, very quaint. Hope to get back there soon! Owners are great people!!
We enjoyed the cottage very much. The place was decorated so cute! Antiques throughout the home. There was 5 of us. We spent 2 nights in December (it was pretty cold) and we stayed inside and watched movies, cooked, and played games. Home was stocked with plenty of towels and bedding. It was nice to have the washer and dryer. There was enough laundry soap for two loads.
Kitchen was pretty well stocked... we wished we had brought foil and coffee filters. House was missing a wine bottle opener and scissors.
The place was clean. There was some pet hair in the rugs... but I know that's hard to get out once it's there.
Overall we loved it and would recommend it for sure.
We rented Cottage II for a 3 night stay. The description on VRBO was as we found the Cottage. The Cottage is decorated in a really nice country cottage feel. Everything we needed for our stay was provided, all the cooking essentials, bathroom towels and a washer/dryer. We enjoyed the BBQ grill and eating on the patio. The view of the lake from the living room and front porch is very relaxing. You are able to fish right off the dock, that is included with the Cottage Rental. The Sunrise is spectacular from the dock. Dish TV is provided, along with a selection of movies. Cottage II has a carport, which was very nice when a heavy rainstorm came through. We have also stayed at Cottage I, and highly recommend both Cottages. We explored the cities of Hawkins, Mineola and Lindale during our stays.
Allen and Rhonda are wonderful hosts, they are very attentive.
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.
