Love the seclusion and the neighborhood and being near the lake! My family lives on the property in a separate house.

What makes this apartment unique

It has gated, secured access - so you should feel safe. Th cabin is called the LAKE TAWAKONI TREE HOUSE because it is elevated (on 2nd floor) and is surrounded by trees. The decor is rustic, complete with a wall paneled in reclaimed wood and a wood burning stove. You'll feel as if you stepped back in time. A 600 square foot deck provides plenty of room for relaxing.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and clean. You feel at home as soon as you arrive. Diana and Johnny are right next door in case you need anything, such as a lighter to start a fire. The paddleboat and kayaks are a nice amenity to have while on vacation. Johnny will even pull it to the water for you! We really enjoyed the Tree House and the memories we made. Thanks!

Kayaks and paddleboat was fun but this time of year the water level in the lake was so low and hard to get to the water but our kids had a lot of fun with it. Thank you.

Our Two Night stay at the Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. It was clean, comfortable and relaxing. We had the run of the whole place and also had two kayaks and a five person paddle boat at our disposal. The furniture was comfortable. We used the Weber Charcoal grill on the deck a couple of times. There is a wood burning stove for use, central air and heat with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, two televisions, a big dining table with plenty of chairs. There is a nice horseshoe setup outside not far from the water with chairs and picnic table. If you needed anything, the town of Quinlan is close by with a Wal-Mart Super center or other stores available. Brookshires etc. This was a relaxing time for us.
