About the property

Lakefront: 3 - Bedrooms, 1 Bath Cottage Sleeps 8

This wonderful, fully-furnished lakefront cottage is perfect for family vacations, guy's fishing retreats, girl's getaways, several couples or a romantic getaway with your honey. Overlooking one of the clearest, spring-fed lakes in Texas (the same aquifer that Ozarka and Nestle gets their spring water feeds Lake Hawkins), this 3-bedroom, 1 bath has everything you need to get outta town and forget about the 'real world' for a while. The two downstairs bedrooms each have a Queen-size bed and the upstairs loft-style bedroom has 2 Queen-size beds and can accommodate a good-sized family or 3-4 couples. Watch the sun rise over the lake from the deck as you're enjoying your morning coffee. Enjoy private boat dock for securing your boat, fishing, swimming and sun-bathing and lots of room to play, walk, run, cycle, motorcycle or just chill. A public beach at Lake Hawkins County Park is down the road, just a few minutes away. You’ll want “our place” to be your “your place” for your next intimate getaway. Ask about our pontoon boat, fishing boat, kayak or canoe rental for a complete lake experience!

About Allen/Rhonda Sanders

Allen and Rhonda Sanders love living in East Texas and living on Lake Hawkins. Married for over 42 years with 2 incredible daughters and 6 grand kids, we're still crazy in love with each other and love to see families slow down and reconnect with each other and sometimes that means getting out of town and getting away from it all. Technically, we're 'retired', but stay busy managing 7 vacation rentals - but it really is a labor of love. We love opening our hearts and homes to folks who need to just need to chill for a while. In her spare time, Rhonda enjoys all kinds of crafts, quilting and almost anything creative. Allen enjoys fishing and riding his Harley. They are both very active in leadership in their local church.

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Allen/Rhonda Sanders chose East Texas

Ever since we moved to Lake Hawkins, whenever Rhonda's brother and sister-in-law came to visit, they just loved it here. When this property became available, they jumped on it like a dog on a bone. They actually plan on retiring here in several years, but in the meantime, they want you to feel at home in their home.

What makes this cabin unique

Overlooking beautiful Lake Hawkins, one of Texas' clearest and picturesque lakes, you'll be able to swim, fish or just lounge on the dock. Build a fire in the fire pit, relax on the deck or go for a walk. More than anything - just get out of town and get in touch with nature and with each other.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This little lake cabin is clean and well taken care of by the owners. The beds are comfortable and the house has everything you should need to make for an awesome stay. The porch has a swing that you can enjoy as you have your morning coffee and watch the squirrels play. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer! I highly recommend to anyone visiting Lake Hawkins.

A GEM OF A LOCAL GET A AWAY

  • 5 of 5

Timber Lake Lodge to the rescue, our anniversary that is. We couldn't get away for a vacation this summer and thought a kayak fishing trip would have to wait. I remembered hearing about Lake Hawkins sometime back so we decided to give it a try. Timber Lake Lodge was the perfect place to have a kayak fishing trip. The house was very nice, well appointed with comfortable beds, perfect for relaxing after a long day fishing. We topped off our stay with a great meal at the Taste of Italy. Looking forward to a return visit and Yes the fishing was great.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend stay with friends here. The cabin is very clean and inviting and the beds were extremely comfortable. There was wood waiting for us by the fire pit and the pre-visit communications were wonderful. Highly recommend.

Beautiful Lake Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying here. My husband grew up in Lindale and this was a wonderful getaway where we could see family and also relax at the lake. Allen was very helpful and made sure that our stay was perfect. We had so much fun in the cabin I hate to admit we didn't do much on the lake. I also loved that we could bring our dog who is a small breed papillon mix. The yard was very secure and he loved it! My teenagers truly enjoyed getting away and relaxing. They had the loft all to themselves and were very happy.
