About the property

5 Bedroom (Sleeps 10), 3 Bath House on lakefront

Enjoy a relaxing get-away from the daily grind at our family lake house. Get the family or your business associates together with no computers and put the phones away. Host an executive retreat, a family reunion, a girlfriend pampering weekend, guy's golf & poker weekend, college or high school roommate reunion, or a romantic time away for the two of you!

Launch your boat or personal watercraft from Lone Star Marina, about 5 minutes away. Swim right off the back yard in the sandy bottom lake or go fishing with the kids on the dock. In the Fall and Winter, enjoy the crisp outdoor fresh air, then go inside and read a book near the warmth of the fireplace.

A huge deck looking out at the water with 5 ceiling fans and seating for 10+ allows you to eat and play comfortably during any season or weather. Enjoy all your meals with the sights and sounds of the water right in your back yard!

About Brett Morell

My husband and I purchased our lake home when our children were young, and we have made many beautiful memories together as a family there. As they have grown into young adults, they still LOVE the lake house and all the fun that goes with a week or weekend stay. It is set up as a second home (we live FT in Lakewood in East Dallas), and it is sparkly clean, beautifully furnished, comfortable, and has everything you might need. When I was working full-time, our lake home also served as a perfect corporate retreat setting for my executive team. A great time away from the office to work on long range strategy and planning. I am a licensed real estate broker.

Brett Morell purchased this house in 2000

Why Brett Morell chose Cedar Creek Lake

Our lake home is on open water (not in a cove) and located about an hour southeast of Dallas, an is an EASY and COMPLETE ESCAPE from the daily grind! The community we're in is small, safe, and peaceful.

What makes this house unique

You'll love it because it LOOKS and FEELS like a lake house, but is sparkly clean and beautifully furnished.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family has stayed at this lake house for several consecutive years and we come back each year because it is a lovely location, a great home and easily accommodates our needs. We love to sit on the back deck for early morning coffee in the quiet surroundings, as well as in the evening when we are winding down from the day. Although we spend much of our time outside, it is due to the lake front setting and multitude of outdoor seating. The inside of the house is just as lovely and is very well set up to encourage either visiting or quiet time, whichever we want to pursue.

I highly recommend the Morell lake house not only because of the home and property, but also because they take the time to ensure we have what we need before we arrive, as well ensure the visit met our expectations.

Great place - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a ladies retreat for 9 women and we loved our time there. The accommodations are first class both inside and outside! Just about anything you could want in a lovely home on the lake. It was restful, relaxing and fun. You can stroll down to the boat dock and enjoy the lake views or just sit on the back deck and relax. Awesome place and would highly recommend it to families or groups.

Good Spot

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time relaxing with family here. Spent most of our time on the porch for coffee, meals, talking and games. Bedrooms/bathrooms were comfortable, convenient. Kitchen/living area was perfect. Dock and lake were great too.

We used your lovely lake home for a women's retreat for 10 people. It was perfect! Every amenity was provided and even some extras that we didn't expect. The view from the living room is stunning and provided a perfect backdrop for our work. We spent the mornings on the back porch and there was plenty of seating for all of us! We'll be back!

The perfect house and location to use as a jump off spot to your Canton weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five couples has rented this house for at least four years . We'll never stay anywhere else. It is about 45 minutes from here to the Canton First Monday venue with absolutely no traffic! If you have ever been to Canton and sat for an hour on the road waiting, you'll appreciate what a convenience it is to just drive into the parking lot ,get out, and start shopping. Other than a couple of turns it's a straight shot.

Okay, enough on Canton. Lets get to the reasons that we'll always stay at this warm, accommodating, spacious house ON A LAKE. When you open the front door and look straight ahead you're looking through this open floor plan ,out the large windows and taking in the view of the lake. Quite inviting. Everything that you could need for your comfort and convenience is there and accessible. The living area is big enough for all of us to have plenty of room. It is connected to a large kitchen table which is next to a nice kitchen that is only missing the food that you will bring. For you grillers, there's a super clean gas grill off the deck. Beds? Baths? All there, and as complete as the rest of the house. The den area is well stocked with games and the entertainment system has all you'll need.

As far as the back patio goes , it's hard to decide whether to be inside or out! There's another large eating table with seating for at least six and then chairs for at least ten more.

There's a pier that leads to a lower and upper deck. One of our guys comes to fish and has landed fish the two times that he's been there.

Sound nice? Sadly my words can't even come close to the sheer comfort that this property offers. The owners have more than gone out of the way to make this a perfect place to relax with good friends and family. They deserve credit for being caring providers.

Owner's Response: You all are very special people! We are honored that you have made our lake house your home away from home. You're so right. The lake view from the family room and porch is so peaceful. See you later this year!

The Perfect Getaway for couples and families!

  • 5 of 5

I've had the pleasure of staying at this property several times. The large back porch that looks out over the lake is idyllic. Even on a cold day you can enjoy the lakeview from inside thanks to the wall of windows. The open floor plan provides the perfect gathering space complete with wood burning fireplace. If you want some alone time it's easy to retreat to one of the comfortable bedrooms.The owners have provided everything you need for a pleasurable stay. I highly recommend this home away from home!
