The acreage is partially cleared and partially wooded offering shady spots to enjoy the many outdoor activities readily available on the property. You can enjoy fishing off the bulkhead, swimming in the lake, water sports, as well as enjoy the spacious outdoors. Play horseshoes, toss a baseball, play Frisbee, set up a tent for the kids, ride your bikes, or simply lounge in the sun or the shade while relaxing over a cool beverage.

The Cabin itself is a cozy 3 BR, 2 bath home featuring a master bath with double sinks and a walk-in closet, a large fireplace in the living room, a dining room with a fantastic view of the lake, a kitchen with all the required amenities including a convection oven, side by side refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and ample cabinet space.

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
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!
The sunrise and like 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.
The house is exactly as described. It was clean and well maintained. The owners gave us instructions on the house and it was very helpful. Customer service was great. We loved the view and how quiet and peaceful it was at the cabin. This is the perfect place for family vacation or a romantic get away. We really enjoyed hanging out on various floats in front of the property and that there were stairs to access the property from the water. My personal favorite was the rocking chairs by the bulkhead early in the morning or at sunset it was so relaxing to just sit and look at the beautiful scenery.
We ate at The Paradise Grille 15520 State Highway 150 W, Coldspring, TX. Everyone that was with us loved it and their tea is awesome.
The water is very shallow in front of the bulkhead and unless you have a flat bottom boat, you can't get it near the house. It was under 2 ft. of water near the house. They have a docking buoy(pipe with reflectors) that is out a ways in the water from the house. We have a pontoon and were able to lift the motor and anchor it closer to the house during the day and then put it on the trailer at night. We had a great time out on the water.
**note** Wolfe Creek Park is the recommended boat launch near the cabin. We discovered on a weekend that Wolfe Creek if filled to capacity they close the boat launch to the public. This is something that maybe the cabin owners were unaware of and we wanted people to know that you might want to have another boat launch located in case the one at Wolfe Creek is closed. We were fortunate that we also had an RV going to Wolfe Creek and were able to use the boat launch for our boat and jet skis.
All in all this was a great getaway for the 4th of July!
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We had a such a great, and relaxing weekend. The property and the view are just beautiful. The house was clean and had everything we needed, and more! The hot tub was a big hit! We had a great time sitting by the water and watching the wildlife. Perfect vacation spot. Just what we needed!
I treated my wife and her friend and cousins to a getaway on the lake and they had a total blast. They just returned and have not stopped talking about their experience yet, so as far as I'm concerned this was a success. They mentioned that the sunrise was absolutely breathtaking, and overall the house was extremely well thought-out for comfort.
Warm and cozy home. The lake view is amazing. There was full moon one night of our stay. I tried to take a picture, but never would it ever do it justice.
This is a house, that is truly, a home away from home.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is really nice with great amenities such as a brand new grill and a grill table. There's a lot to do in the area: fishing, hiking (double-lake trail is very close and really beautiful), several parks, restaurants, and our most favorite, moon rise over the lake. We definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time in a peaceful surrounding. The hosts were also very nice and helpful.
My wife and I were looking for a secluded get away close to home and this property is a perfect fit for that. We frequent Lake Livingston camp grounds so the house was a trouble free way to enjoy our favorite lake for the weekend. The hot tub was hot upon arrival and there was even wood by the back door for a romantic fire in the fire pit. The two chairs by the water are perfect for watching the sunrise while enjoying a cup of coffee. I would recommend this property for up to 8 people. The only small drawback for us was the water was too shallow to get our boat near the house to anchor out, but not a big deal.
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.
