About the property

Fantastic Get Away Location !!!!

Just two and a half hours from Dallas this cottage is ideally located for a quiet and peaceful escape from the fast paced hustle and bustle of city life. Check out the cottage's web page at The cottage is waterfront, just walk from the back porch right down to the lake and wade right in. If you choose to enjoy the nice sized screened in porch you will see a beautiful sunset from the comfort of your chair. Enjoy the birds and wildlife, the serenity of the woods and the awesome stars overhead at night. If you are into Bald Eagle watching, this lake is for you. You can follow "Bald Eagles on Lake O' the Pines” Facebook page for past sightings. If fishing is more to your liking, several bass tournaments are held on this lake throughout the year. Lake O' the Pines is known for largemouth & black bass, nice size crappie, redear sunfish and bluegill.

Historic Jefferson is just a few minutes away. There you will find all kinds of entertainment to keep you busy. If steak is a favorite meal, cook some up on the grill or just a short drive away is 5 D Cattle Co in downtown Avinger :)

Don't forget the casinos and river boats are only 50 minutes away in Louisiana.

Also popular are most all water sports. You can boat, paddle board, kayak, swim or sail. While the cottage does not have a dock on the water, the lake bed is soft and you can beach you boat or personal water craft right in front of the cottage. Just toss a rope and tie to a tree on shore.

Because of the secluded location, not all GPS mapping functions work well in this part of Texas. Detailed directions will be emailed prior to check in.

Some might ask, No Name Cottage???? I'm a big fan of the Paint Your Wagon movie!! When asked what will we call our cottage we racked our brains trying to figure out the best name. Since this house was rented before under a different name we had to choose rather quickly. Then it hit, No Name City from Paint Your Wagon. It just fit. So here it is. No Name Cottage !! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!!!!!!

Beautiful views, lovely pines

  • 4 of 5

Very cozy cabin with a fantastic screened porch to view the lake and wildlife. We enjoyed our stay and would come back. Pretty peaceful. No close grocery store so pick up what you need ahead of time. If you take a pet be aware the neighbor dog will come over to poo.

Very relaxing, house was just right.

The No Name Cabin was very nice, clean and inviting. The view at sunset was breathtaking. It was so quiet and peaceful. There were several deer that came right up to back porch. It was fun to watch them. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Great location on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and comfortable cabin right on the water. Great screened-in porch that always seemed cool in the heat. One recommendation would be to thin some of the smaller trees for a better view of the water. Lots of wildlife and quiet neighborhood. Boated, caught lots of fish, and always found a nice beach to take a swim. Easy booking as well. Thanks to the owners and property manager Dave, a very nice man. We will be back.
