Thank you for sharing your fun lake cabin. What a beautiful spot! The nice shade trees kept the backyard very cool on a hot day. The big deck, fire pit area & expansive lawn was perfect to play games and spend all of our time outside. We enjoyed fishing off of the dock & watching fireworks/stargazing from the top deck of the dock. The neighbors were all very nice. The boat launch is very close/convenient. We had fun swimming/ floating around the dock & volleyball court area. The kids were glad the waterfront was a soft dirt bottom without any brush/weeds. The cabin was perfect, well appointed and very clean. We look forward to coming back again soon. Thank you!

Relaxing, relaxing, relaxing

We joined with my brother and his family for a combined 8 people (2 kids) and we had an incredible weekend. I'm already looking for another weekend in the fall. Very nice house and enough space for all of us.

Truly a home experience away from your own home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was warm and friendly. Almost every supply you might need was available. This was our family vacation with our grow children and Grandson. The weather was perfect, lake clear, warm and welcoming. Neighbors very friendly. Campfire and fireworks were exciting along with s'mores. Lone star marina was very helpful with jet ski and pontoon boat rentals. Quiet time on the dock every morning with our precious golden retriever Molly. We so want to retire there, and look forward to our vacation again there next year. This rental demonstrated true customer service and hospitality. Thank you, Judy & Mike Collins

Great relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a few days for our Spring Break. My family had a wonderful time! The house is small but very clean and well kept. The lake is exactly how it's shown. It is directly just a walk through the back yard. A big thank you to the family for supplying everything you could possibly need. The deck was WONDERFUL, the lake so peaceful! We cooked out everyday and fished until sunset. Then we talked, drank coffee and ate smores around the firepit. My little kids enjoyed it so much! We will be back to enjoy the lake in the Summer. It was too cold for us old folks. 😁😁 Thanks again for the hospitality!!

Wonderful Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little place. Exactly as described. Directions were spot on and we found it easily in the dark. It was plenty spacious for all 9 of us. We had 5 adults, 2 kids, and 2 toddlers. The toddlers slept in pack n plays that we brought with us. The big kids loved the bunk bed! The deck was wonderful to sit on all day long with plenty of seating provided. It was just a short walk down to the dock where the we caught catfish anytime we wanted. We were able to tie our boats up easily. The private boat ramp was a plus too! We had to call the owner a couple of times with questions, but both times they were very friendly and handled our issues with ease. There is a TV and I believe it runs on antenna. Some local stations didn't come in very well. We brought most of our own food so we only ate out once. I don't recommend the Jalapeno Tree in Gun Barrel City. The house was stocked with condiments, sugar, coffee and other basic needs, as well as plates, cups, and utensils. All bathrooms were fully stocked with TP, towels, and large shampoo and conditioner bottles. There were extra sheets (we didn't use). Even a washer and dryer complete with detergent. We are a fishing family so the only activities we did were fishing/sightseeing on the lake. The neighbors were alot closer than we expected and you can't tell it in the pictures. All the neighbors were friendly.

The only downsides to this property:

The guys hated the single cup coffee pot. It got the job done but was messy and hard to use.

The parking says it will park 4 but we had 3 trucks and 2 boats. We were able to fit everything but it was tight. Once we put the boat in the water, we left one truck and trailer at the boat ramp.

The dining chairs were in rough shape.
