About the property

The perfect family lake getaway or buddy fishing trip!

LAKE FRONT home with great views of beautiful Lake Texoma from 70' deck. All your lake activities right out the back door. Watch the sunrise over the water with a cup of coffee from the deck or fish from the DOCK. Kids will love the sand beach! Family friendly home. Great for fishing buddy trips, too. Fishing guides love our inlet!

DOCK YOUR BOAT in the steps-away COVERED GUEST BOAT SLIP and fuel up directly across the bay at Buncombe Creek Marina or two other marinas nearby. Multiple boat launches minutes away including easy to use Juniper Point West.

PERFECT (!) deep water bay for TUBING, WAKE BOARDING, and FISHING. Fish from the dock or play on the RED SAND BEACH with a large area of shallow WADING water just a short, easy walking distance down the hill (great for kids!). Beach tent available on request. You can have fun all day right behind the house but the beautiful Lake Texoma ISLANDS are a quick boat ride outside the bay. 'Flotillas' are very popular there!

Relaxing, quiet, clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Jemma's lake house very much. It's very quiet, the house and area is clean and had everything we needed. The back deck is awesome as well as the bluetooth/dry mister fan!! We will come back here.

Great Waterfront Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property with our friends, and we both have small kids. There was more than enough space for both of our families. The house is very nicely finished and furnished. The round table with the lazy-Susan in it was great for playing games! The back porch and patio were great for sitting out enjoying the lake and a good place for the kids to run around and play. We really enjoyed the very short walk to the dock and the beach. There were a lot of stickers in the grass on the way to the dock/beach, so I would definitely recommend closed-toe shoes. Overall a great place to stay.

My whole family enjoyed this place!

  • 5 of 5

I have a family of 6 that stayed at this place on Sept 21-25. Kids are in their 20s. Loved it! The owner, Jan, is very responsive and thoughtful. The fenced in yard was good for our Labradoodle to roam and watch for critters/squirrels. Great porch out back that is comfortable. House beds are good and whole house is very clean. Place is probably 50+ yrs old, and has been updated very well. Nice flooring, new appliances, new-looking sink and counter fixtures, etc. Loved the DirecTV, DVR, wifi and AC. All worked great. Really liked the beach area which is all sand and easy to wade in. Dog loved it too! Only about a 5 minute walk. Area outside of gated area of house had a lot of stickers, so be careful walking through there with open shoes/flip flops. Our fishing guide picked us up from the dock Jan has. Really convenient!

The only thing that might have been better was the water pressure for showers. It was not bad, but is not what we're used to in newer homes. But maybe just can't do anything about that in an older home. Not a big deal.

We would definately stay here again, and would recommend it to others!

Thanks Jan!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a great time, Chris! We would love to have you come back. The house was actually built in 2005 by the family I bought it from. They had simple tastes and, since he had a tile business, it has a lot of tile. However, they did use many energy-efficient building techniques. The dishwasher, disposal and the heating/AC units are brand new as are the counter tops in the bathroom. The water pressure in the showers is from the water-saver shower heads I had installed recently. I can re-evaluate that given your input. The fenced in yard is maintained by a lawn service and should not have stickers. Outside the fence is Corp of Engineers land and we are only allowed only to mow it, not treat it for weeds/stickers so it is always best to wear shoes there.

Jamma's Lake House

  • 5 of 5

My adult family of six had a wonderful time at Lake Texoma for four nights. It felt like home right away. The home was spacious and had everything one could possibly need for comfort and ease. The highlight is the large porch with views of the lake. We spent a lot of time there relaxing and catching up with each other. The kitchen was well stocked and conducive to preparing meals.The round dining table and built in Lazy-Susan feature helped get the food passed quickly.

The dock has many steps to descend/ ascend. I liked the workout. Fishing off the dock was fun. There are some smaller catfish and bass there to hook. We hired a local Buncombe Creek fishing guide for a morning. Brandon picked us up at the dock at 7 am . By 7:15 we were reeling in striped bass so fast my head was spinning. He cleaned our catch at the marina then boated it back to us ready to freeze.

It was a joy to bring our two standard poodles. The deposit and pet rate is there for everyone's protection. I love that Jan will consider pets of responsible pet owners. I watched them play at the beach in the waves. It was easy to bathe them outdoors at the outdoor shower. There are dog towels even provided.

I didn't want to leave...it is easy to forget the sound of quiet and birds and wind if you lead a busy life in a city. Jamma's Lake House is a wonderful escape!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is fantastic to rent from! She went out of her way to insure we had everything we'd need. She was also available for any questions that came up. The house is awesome, and is set up wonderfully with anything you'd need to enjoy your time at the lake. The rooms were all set up comfortably, and made it easy to travel with our young family. Overall, the house was perfect for us. We loved the deck, open living and kitchen, and dock for our boat. It's a perfect lake rental!

Jamma's Lake House- A Fabulous Time

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Jamma's Lake House on Lake Texoma. I went there with my dear friends/family, David Bristow and Connie and Dave Goodman. The home had more than enough room for all of us and we were extremely comfortably. We marveled at the attention to detail that Jan has provided. She had thought of all the little extras you would need while being away from home. For example, on the deck she has lots of seating, even a child size table and chairs for the little ones. There is a fan with a water mister for those hot steamy days and then there was the outside heaters for those colder nights. Lots of towels and the kitchen has everything you could possible need for preparing your meals. If you run out of clean clothes there is a full size washer and dryer. Gas grill outside allowed us to enjoy some amazing steaks. It was a delight. Let's not forget the four large bedrooms with huge comfortable beds. The living area is spacious with ample seating. I want to live there. We cannot wait to come back and we will definitely stay longer. Thank you Jan for a wonderful HomeAway experience.

By the way this was our first time to use HomeAway and you made it a great experience. -Betisa
