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.

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.

Cozy lodge

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for nights , two families with a two year old and two toddlers. We fit comfortably and had plenty of space. The lodge was very clean minus the cobwebs on the porch. We did have to move the living room table it was too dangerous for our little ones and brought our own gate to keep them from going upstairs. The location is down the road from a beach area on the lake that was great for the kids. Tyler state park is close by and that also had a great beach area and playground . We did also enjoy several canoe trips that the property allows you to use. They do provide several sizes of life vests. We also, enjoyed a fire pit one night. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the property.

Timberlake Lodge at Lake Hawkins, Tx

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Timberlake Lodge over the recent Labor Day weekend. It was a beautiful, relaxing home overlooking the lake. The home was very clean and had all the accommodations of being at home. Allen and Rhonda are great people and make you feel right at home. The lake is beautiful and loaded with fish. We look forward to our next visit and would highly recommend it.

Cute Comfortable Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a family gathering to celebrate a birthday. Three couples spent the night and 3 adults visited for the day. We found the cabin to be modern and clean with comfortable beds and everything needed in the kitchen to prepare a meal. Loved the fact that we were able to bring our dog and he could be on the front deck with us and at the same time have access to the fenced back yard. The lake was across the road (very close) with a nice view from the front deck. It was a very hot August weekend but we had a lot of fun visiting, playing games and eating barbecue picked up from Dubya's Smokehouse in Hawkins.
