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.

What a wonderful get away!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Timberlake, for a few days, to celebrate my husband's birthday and have some time away; just the two of us. From the moment we walked into the door of this wonderful little paradise, we felt so relaxed. Our first night was a rainy one, but it was so nice to sit on the covered porch and experience the peaceful surroundings. The next morning we ventured out to the dock and went kayaking and later took a ride around the lake.

Allen was a wonderful host and stopped by to answer the questions we called about. We were able to visit his wife's fantastic antique shop in Mineola called Nest Feathers.

A Taste of Italy is a very lovely restaurant in walking distance from Timberlake, both times we ate there we had great food and service.

We have already booked another stay.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a great place to stay on the lake with everything you need, this is the place! Allen was very helpful with any questions and was close by if needed. We also rented his boat and had a blast over the July 4th holiday. This is a pet friendly set up that was very important to us. The beds were comfortable at night and the deck is nice to hang out and BBQ. Lets not forget the canoes. Our teens enjoyed them as well. Thank you Allen for offering this place! We will see you again.

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!
