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.

Incredible cabin, exceptional hospitality!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cabin as a surprise for my husband and our two boys for Father's Day weekend. Alan was wonderful, and provided incredible hospitality for the weekend experience.

The cabin was beautiful and well-maintained. There was ample room, the beds were comfortable, we had everything we needed and then some! My husband brought the dogs, and They loved the backyard and fenced area. We have small dogs and there was no problem with them getting out of the fenced backyard. The boys saw wildlife while there, and even rescued a snapping turtle on the property and relocated him to the lake across the street. The pontoon boat, kayaks, and canoes were rented by us for the weekend. We enjoyed being out on the lake fishing. Alan even took some of his time to take them out once, and share his favorite fishing spot. Alan also gave up a large bass that he caught, and gave it to the boys, which was grilled for dinner.

This was a wonderful weekend, and I can't say enough about the amazing hospitality provided. Thank you Alan!! We will be back!

What a wonderful time we all had at Hawkins Lake thanks to this homey and comfortable property. Our grandkids loved playing in the fenced backyard, fishing and making smores! Our two-year-old caught his first fish...and kissed his first fish!

Kitchen and bathroom are stocked with everything you need. A short pleasant drive to Hawkins is convenient for food and personal items. Also, a choice of medical facilities are available if needed...on a Sunday morning to treat a common childhood illness that waited for the first day of vacation to appear. Thankfully this home was perfect with the upstairs area and the ability to access Amazon, Netflix or Hulu for favorite fun educational tv choices the few times rest was needed. Everything needed for a relaxing, enjoyable fun vacation is here or near for adults and children.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! We will return for a third visit at one of your properties. They are perfect and with perfect hosts!!

Wonderful, relaxing, and just out-of-the-way enough

  • 5 of 5

My wife, three dogs, and I couldn't have been happier at Timberlake Lodge. It was a lovely layout, very roomy, and with three dogs we couldn't have asked for a better setup. There's a huge fenced backyard that attaches to a gated deck which has locking gates. We made good use of the blu-ray player as well! The bed was very comfortable. Plenty of towels in the bathroom. Kitchen had everything we need (although our needs were simple). Coffee was good, too!

We will absolutely stay again! Allen was very responsive and made all the administration stuff a breeze. Great hosts. Great house. Great location.

Exactly as Represented

  • 4 of 5

One of the best things I can say for any property listed on the internet, is that reality is what is represented on the website, which this property certainly was. What the website can't capture is that Lake Hawkins is one of the most natural looking man made lakes in Texas, with abundant natural beauty. I'm a tough ranker, but this easily could have been 5 stars.
