About Allen/Rhonda Sanders

Allen and Rhonda Sanders love living in East Texas and living on Lake Hawkins. Married for over 44 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 our 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 - in fact she just opened up an antique shop in Mineola called Nestfeathers. Allen enjoys fishing and riding his Harley. They are both very active in leadership in their local church.

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Allen/Rhonda Sanders chose East Texas

We purchased this property in 2015 and finished completely remodeling it in 2016. A friend from Oklahoma (Noni, to her grandkids) was lamenting the fact that her grandkids just lived too far away here in Hawkins. So, now we have the best of both worlds - she has a great little lake place to spoil her grandkids and we manage it as a vacation rental when she goes back home. I call that "win-win"!

What makes this cottage unique

Lake Hawkins is one of the best kept secrets in the country. Quiet and peaceful, you can enjoy your coffee or a glass of wine on the front porch or go out onto the dock and just forget about the rest of the world. Bring your own watercraft or rent one of ours. Wonderful place to fish, swim, go boating or just chillax. You might have a little trouble leaving.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in the cottage. We had a beautiful view of the lake, and were comfortable and relaxed in the cottage. It is a very quiet and secluded lake, so there wasn't much activity going on around us (which we loved). The cottage itself was clean and decorated very very cute. The pictures do not do it justice! Also something important to note: both the bed and the sleeper sofa were very squishy and comfortable. We will definitely come back for another stay!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay with us in our little slice of heaven. After our first visit to Lake Hawkins over 13 years ago, we found ourselves living here! We just love the peace and quiet out here and don't want to be anywhere else. Look forward to having you stay with us again for your next getaway. Allen

Exactly what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

We are so appreciative of the Sanders to share their blessing with us. We absolutely loved everything about this nice cottage!! They have literally thought of everything to make your stay relaxful and enjoyable. We love to cook when we stay away from home and they had anything and everything we needed to make some awesome meals. The house was very clean and very nicely decorated. Our view was mesmerizing and the weather was great. We will definitely be back, they also have others that we have checked out and they are just as nice. Would highly recommend this place to everyone.❤️ We can't wait to plan our next visit!!!
