Mabank House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, large family room with open kitchen, and covered deck

Read our 5 star reviews. La Vida Loca Cottage offers a relaxing get-a-way and lake front enjoyment. The innovation design of the house is perfect for leisure living as well as providing an elegant venue for entertaining and family fun. Even when the lake is low, we are on open water, which means there is always water in front of the house. If the lake is down there is just more beach area.

There are 2 public boat ramps near by and boat rentals available. Ask for more information and we will provide you with and information sheet on Cedar Creek Lake area activities.

The southern exposure on open water, and wrap around covered deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the predominantly southern breeze. A fresh cup of coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the lake is a must. The cottage offers a large living area with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, expansive use of glass, a spacious well-appointed kitchen, and large informal dining bar. Outside the approximately 800 square feet of decking creates the perfect outdoor environment where you and lucky guests will enjoy east facing open water views and unlimited entertainment possibilities. In addition, there is a private boathouse with large sun deck.

The interior of the house has been repainted for 2015. We have also added a firepit and more games.

For 2015 we are adding 2 Kayaks that will be available for our guests use. The cost will be an additional $50 for the term of the house rental.

The house is in a clean well maintained neighborhood that is free of mobile homes.

PARTIES FOR PROMS, GRADUATION ETC.. ARE NOT ALLOWED.

About Carol and David Pinkus

We are semi retired and live full-time at Cedar Creek Lake. We chose the lake because of the beauty of the lake, our friends and the great people we have met here.

Carol and David Pinkus purchased this house in 2014

Why Carol and David Pinkus chose Cedar Creek Lake

We named this house 'La Vida Loca' (The crazy life) because there is so much to do. No mater what time of year there are many activities to enjoy around Cedar Creek Lake. What we like most though is sitting and enjoying nature from the porch. There is a great deal of wildlife around the lake-- birds, fish and animals. The lake is a stopping off point for many birds as they migrate for the different seasons. The porch faces Southeast so it is shaded in the afternoon. In the summer there is usually a nice breeze. The sunrises in the mornings can be spectacular.

What makes this house unique

There are two large swings on the back porch, and a sitting area on the dock. The water is good for swimming.

Best Place to reunite

  • 5 of 5

I have been here recently and I would say it was just best place for family Reunion. :) We had a great time while at the house, quite peaceful in the mornings overlooking the water while sipping on coffee. Just loved it.!!

Like a high end hotel on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

I am I sales and marketing so for me presentation is everything and this place nailed it! The most wonderful bedding on every bed, no need to bring your own pillow because no expense was spared on the quality and quantitie of linens bedding and pillows. The home is on a dead end street super quiet but 2min from a great gas/grocery store. Khakis available to rent, huge patios n porches and comfy outdoor furniture everywhere! The dock & fire pit on the water super dreamy along with the views...we relaxed and enjoyed every detail the owners took care of!!! Love love loved it and I will be back with my boys. We have stayed in vrbo's all over the U.S. THIS WAS THE BEST!

Fufills my two favorites: Fantastic lake views and a large patio.

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our weekend away at La Vida Loca! This property is great. We had a group of 7 friends stay together quite comfortably in this house. When we arrived there was a welcome note, snacks and music playing in on the whole house speaker system. Plenty of bath towels and mini bars of soap in the bathrooms. The kitchen area is huge, allowing 4 people to all help with dinner and not be in each others way. When the shutters are open in the living room there is a 180 degree view of the lake. Not a single thing obstructs your view. Then round it off with a wrap around back patio with enough seating for the entire group to lounge/eat/play games together. We rented the two kayaks from them and went kayaking a few times in the weekend as well. This rental is on my list and would bring back others to experience it as well. Neighbors are nice when they cross your path as well. If you need to get away and decompress, rest assured you can do that here.

Fun family time!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our family get away at the lake for the second year. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The dock was well maintained and fun to swim and relax around. I was a little disappointed with the cleanliness of the house compared to last year. The artificial plants were loaded with dust, cobwebs on ceiling in living room and inside of cabinets needed a little TLC. Otherwise, great time at the lake!
