Hawkins Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

Gorgeous lake view from quaint little cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Lakeview Cottage. We celebrated Thanksgiving there with my in-laws. It is such a lovely, quiet area with the lake and pine trees all around. We enjoyed walking by the lake and looking out at the lake from the windows of the cottage. The house provides most everything we would need, and it is decorated so cute. We were happy to get to bring our dogs with us as well. The only drawback to the house is that the shower and toilet do not provide much space. Otherwise, this lake house was a really nice place to stay.

Another relaxing and enjoyable summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Again enjoyed our stay and Allen is always wonderful to deal with and very helpful should you need anything. Lake is just right, not too small or large and congested. It's also great to have your own private dock. Until next time!

This was our second stay with hopefully more to come in the future. The Sanders are very attentive to the needs of their guests and provide a wonderfully cared for property. It is refreshing to find such genuinely nice people. The lake is awesome. Very quiet. We plan on returning.

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisted of a toddler, a preschooler, a teen, adults, a senior AND dogs, so a big ticket to fill to say the least! This cottage on the lake was perfect!! The house was clean, spacious, and had absolutely everything we could need. The little details were impressive, like the container of bird seed to feed the birds in the morning, the citronella candles on the deck so you could really enjoy those views, and even a full size washer and dryer. There were plenty of towels, trash bags, dishes etc., even a few laundry pods and dryer sheets. There were extra blankets, pillows, a hair dryer, an alarm clock (which was found stashed where it belonged--in the back of a closet---good call guys!)---we seriously only needed to bring our swimsuits and food! There is a road separating the house from the lake, but it is not busy at all, and a super short distance. The water----oh man that water!! It was perfect---beautiful and clear!! We spent most of the time swimming, fishing, taking the boat out (which we highly recommend renting!), and enjoying the quietness and scenery. You can jump into the water from the docks, or as our kids loved, anchor the boat in the middle of the lake and jump from there. The fishing was great! We were getting bites right off the dock. The little ones caught something almost every time. There is a sandy beach at one end of the lake, but we never went. There is a Brookshire Brothers in town for groceries (super friendly folks!) and grandma was able to do some window antiquing in nearby Mineola. Just in case of emergencies, the hospital is not at all far away in Tyler (we had an issue arise unrelated to the rental or our stay). Thank you Allen for your hospitality and for sharing this little slice of Heaven! We hated to leave, and are looking forward to our next visit!! PS---We hesitated leaving a review for fear word would get out about this hidden gem!! :D

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.
