About Jeanene

Gary & Jeanene Jensen are happy to offer this property for you to enjoy your vacation. We have been in the Information Technology business for many years, and have recently started our own IT consulting business. So, with all the travel we do for work, we have purchased our ideal lakefront property that we hope to enjoy fully in our retirement years. We live nearby, our daughter goes to a local school, and Jeanene's family and friends are all in this same general area. Jeanene is a native Texan, while Gary is Canadian born and moved from Canada in 1999 - he really moved to escape those nasty Canadian winters in Edmonton, AB, but didn't realize at the time that he was going from the freezer to the frying pan! The Houston weather took a little getting used to.

Jeanene purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jeanene chose Coldspring

We spent many months selecting what we thought was the perfect property for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We wanted a property that would offer the best lake views, lots of room to do outdoor activities, fish off the bulkhead, participate in lots of water sports, and enjoy nature in a quiet acreage setting. We believe this is indeed the perfect vacation spot!

What makes this cabin unique

The sunrise and lake views are spectacular. You can sit in the Hot Tub and watch the birds fly over the lake. You can fish right off the bulkhead. You can have a morning coffee on the covered patio with lake view, listen to the wind blow through the many large trees on the property. It is peaceful, relaxing, fun and just an enjoyable spot in every way.

Very quiet and relaxing property.

  • 4 of 5

In general we enjoyed the quiet and peaceful location of the property. We had a few mishaps but nothing major like: the cold water did not function on the washer; when we opened the windows there was a lot of dead bugs and dirt on the window frames; the frying pans were hard to use because everything stuck to the bottom; the cushions for the outside chairs were dirty and overused; there is no fence in the right side of the property; the lake pier pictured in the presentation is that of the neighbor's property: looks like it was a pier on this property but it was removed;

The property in general was clean, the bedrooms, the towels and the sheets; we were able to make fires every evening and there is a very nice view of the sunrise over the lake;

The property managers were readily available to help when we needed. We recommend this property.

Great place to enjoy with family

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic! A perfect place for family to come together for my grandson's 1st birthday. We had everything we needed, the kids enjoyed cooking S'mores at night. Next time we are out to see our family in Texas we will be back.

Amazing view, great outdoors space; interior not as clean as I would have expected.

  • 4 of 5

Location could not be beat. Quiet area, tree-filled lot right on the water which made for a private and nature-filled experience as desired. Living room and outdoor furniture comfy. Buoy for boat was NOT in place offshore as promised; thankfully our Sunfish was small enough for us to put in and take out throughout weekend. House had ample space and plenty of seating in and out though strangely inside dinette had only 3 seats at a 4-person table with six dinner plates in a home that slept 7 comfortably. Master bath was a bit dirty - long, dark hairs in shower and on vanity at arrival; and kitchen needed some cleaning too - countertops, cabinet doors and interiors were yucky. But we were able to take care of it quickly and felt very much at home by the second day of our wonderful stay.

Quaint, comfortable, lots of shade, huge back patio.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time. Easy to find. All directions were very clear in multi page info sheet. As advertised, the water is very shallow off the bulkhead. Lake bottom is mud/sand. We rented a boat and had a blast on the huge lake.

The home was wonderful, very well kept, fantastic views and the water right off the yard is shallow so it was perfect to float and wade around in! Hot tub was great we came back very relaxed and happy!

We are on the western shores of Lake Livingston within the Sam Houston National Forest in Texas hill country 74 miles North & East of downtown Houston, 60 miles from IAH (George Bush Intercontinental Airport). We are 1 mile from Wolf Creek Park that offers a public boat launch, 3 miles from the prestigious Cape Royale Golf Club and only 10 miles from the quaint town of Coldpsring TX that offers local restaurant fare, antique shopping and trade days where local vendors offer their wares in a flea market type setting. If you need a full service marina, Browders Marina is only 17 miles away.

The Cabin is located just off of a curving, hilly road (FM 224) that is a scenic favorite for cycling enthusiasts. The rolling hills, trees and lush greenery make for a very pleasant bike ride or sight seeing drive.

A larger Urban center, the town of Lake Livingston, is just 30 miles away. Here you will find everything you need for an evening of dining out, shopping, or just getting the essentials from the local Walmart store.

If you are a history buff, San Jacinto County (named for the 1836 battle that ended the Texas revolution against Mexico), has numerous interesting sites nearby: Coldspring which is the county seat has an interesting history of two distinct towns (Old Town - built in the Gullies) and the new part built on the hill. The area is dotted with Historical markers and historic buildings like the Old Town first jail still stands today. Coldspring United Methodist Church is believed to be the oldest Methodist church in continuous use in Texas. Another church, Evergreen United Methodist, was organized in 1862, several years before the county was formed.

The Trapp-McClanahan house, built around 1880, is privately owned and Council Hill, also located on private property, was the home of Vernal B. Lea, brother of Mrs. Sam Houston.

On U.S. Highway 190 is Oakhurst, which was once a prosperous sawmill town named for Oakhurst, Okla., home of several lumber men who moved to Texas.

Three miles north of Oakhurst is Raven Hill, the one-time home of Sam Houston, the hero of San Jacinto. The hill got its name from an Indian name for Houston. Further up U.S. 190 from Oakhurst is Point Plank, which was originally named Point Blanc by a Frenchwoman who moved here from Alabama. The town was also called Point White and White Point.

About a mile south of Point Blank is Robinson Cemetery, where a large monument marks the grave of Gov. George Tyler Wood, who served from 1849 to 1851. Wood's grave was unmarked for more than a half-century until the monument was built.
