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 Hawkins

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.

Third Stay with Many to Follow

  • 5 of 5

Great place right on the lake. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Very clean with everything you need. Close enough to anything you may need, and far enough to hear nothing but nature. Can't wait to return for visit #4.

Cottage II is a charming cabin Lake Hawkins

  • 5 of 5

For us this cabin was close proximity to relatives. We enjoyed day trips to Gladewater/Canton for antiquing. The lake was beautifully picturesque with water lilies around the edges. Quiet area so very nice for morning and evening walks. A very good place to get away from it all! The cabin was plenty stocked with all basic appliances and utensils. The beds comfortable. Will definitely come back;) Allen was a great host!!!

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.
