About Debbie

We have owned this property for over 15 years, and we have made wonderful memories at Cedar Creek Lake. We have 5 children and over 500 friends that have enjoyed this home.

Debbie purchased this house in 2001

Why Debbie chose Cedar Creek Lake

This home is located in a quiet neighborhood on a cul-de-sac. Kids can ride bikes, skate, play outside, and otherwise enjoy the outdoors here "in the country". Our home is situated on the lake at the end of a cove. Because "our water" is not in the main part of the lake, everyone may enjoy swimming off of our dock without worrying about lots of watercraft traffic.

What makes this house unique

The home is close to everything--grocery stores, emergency clinic, hospital (right in Gun Barrel City), Gun Barrel's version of Dave and Busters with go-carts and laser tag, movie theater, drug stores, Walmart, nail salons, pizza delivery, and whatever else you might need. So, when your teenagers want pizza at 10:00 PM or one of your guests enjoyed too much sun, it is nice to have 5-minute access to these businesses. In other neighborhoods on Cedar Creek Lake, you are much farther from grocery stores, etc...

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 4 nights over spring break this year. I highly recommend this location and I would/will visit again. Outside of the wonderful view, close proximity to Dallas and size of the house there are so many small details that the owners do to make it a comfortable place to visit i.e. device power cords everywhere, a ton of serving dishes, games and a lot more. We felt completely at home and welcome. Thanks for letting us enjoy ourselves.

What a great place!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed two nights in this home. What a great place. It's updated, it feels like home not a vacation site. The owners are really nice, easy to get along with and will do most anything to make your stay comfortable. My family has stayed in two other homes on Cedar Creek and this property is by far the best. We will be booking at least two more outings at this property in 2017.

Perfect Lake house Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is absolutely the perfect place to stay for a group get-a-away. My family celebrated Christmas here and the house comfortably accommodated our group of 10. The bathrooms and kitchen were updated exquisitely. We made lavish meals almost everyday and everything we needed was in that kitchen. The house has this warm and cozy B and B feel. You can enjoy the great views of the lake while watching the game, playing games, etc. We have AMAZING family photos in front of the lake. The owner's are very generous and great about communicating with you. My sister left a few baby items behind and the owners went out of their way to return them to her. This place was perfect for our family!

Beautiful location for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was an amazing location for our family's Thanksgiving holiday! We had 11 people in our group and it was a perfect fit for us. The game room area had a puzzle going, laptops plugged in, football on the TV (or movies in between games) and watching corn hole games and fishing on the pier – from the huge window facing the lake. Our lab loved watching the ducks from the pier and the sunrise and sunset views were an event we had to witness each morning and evening (also an ideal backdrop for Christmas card photo shoot). The beds were so comfy it was difficult to get the twenty-somethings out of bed, but maybe it was because the scrabble games went on too long the night before. The kitchen was so big and allowed for the lab to get a drink of water, whilst the men tended to the turkey and ladies set up side dishes. The table was great - we could all dine together, play games together or just catch up on big fish stories (one big catfish was caught on the pier). Thanks Debbie, for your hospitality and welcoming us into your beautiful lake house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review it really helps other families to help pick our home. It isn't fancy, but like you say it's great for families that just want to be together and create their own memories. Thank you for leaving things so nice. Have a great 2017! Hopefully, we will see you in the summer. P.S. Would love to see the Christmas card, as you could see in our home I LOVE, LOVE Pictures!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We made a trip to Canton and chose this home to stay for the week. We could not have chose a better place to stay. The house had everything you could possibly need. More than enough room for all nine of us. The beds were very comfortable and everyone rested well after our outings. The nook in one of the bedrooms was a hit with my 7 year old granddaughter! She is still talking about it. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need. The view of the lake from what I called the sun room was excellent. We stayed a lot in that room in the evenings reading and enjoying the view. Enjoyed talking to the owner, Debbie, she was great making sure of what we needed. We will be back again!
