About the property

1 bedroom with great view of the lake with dock , 1 bath, sleeps 4

This quaint, fully-furnished lakefront cottage is perfect for family vacations, guy's fishing retreats, girl's getaways, a couple of couples or a romantic getaway with your honey. Overlooking one of the clearest, spring-fed lakes in Texas (the same aquifer that Ozarka and Nestle gets their spring water feeds Lake Hawkins), this 1-bedroom, 1 bath has everything you need to get outta town and forget about the 'real world' for a while. The bedroom, with a Queen-size bed and the Queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area can accomodate a small family or 2 couples. Watch the sun rise over the lake from the deck as you're enjoying your morning coffee. Enjoy our screened-in cabana, private boat dock for securing your boat, fishing, swimming and sun-bathing and lots of room to play, walk, run, cycle, motorcycle or just chill. A public beach at Lake Hawkins County Park is down the road, just a few minutes away. You’ll want “our place” to be your “your place” for your next intimate getaway. Ask about our pontoon boat rental for a complete lake experience!

We're 100 miles east of Dallas, 100 west of Shreveport and within minutes of Mineola, Gladewater and Jefferson with scores of antique shops, lakes, wineries and some of the best fishing, boating and motorcycle riding in the country! Lake Fork, Lake of the Pines, Lake Palestine, Lake Holbrook, Lake Winnsoro, Lake Gilmer, Lake Quitman are just minutes away. So spend a weekend on beautiful Lake Hawkins or spend a week and fish them all!

About Allen/Rhonda Sanders

Allen and Rhonda are semi-retired and live nearby within the community. Rhonda is artsy and creative. Allen loves to fish and ride his Harley. Both are very involved and active their local church and both love to make music and enjoy serving people.

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Allen/Rhonda Sanders chose East Texas

We have lived on Lake Hawkins for over 10 years in a fabulous log home and my neighbor decided to sell her little weekend place. So with a little TLC and my wife's creativity, we fashioned this great little cottage into something that looks like it belongs on a Montana river or off the coast of Maine. Its pitched ceiling, exposed beams and a tastefully-decorated fishing motif, just feels like you're miles from everything.

Great stay at a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Two of my sisters and I stayed at this comfortable cabin out on Lake Hawkins. The Sanders were very hospitable in making sure they were ready for our arrival and we were fortunate to be able to introduce ourselves to Allen shortly after. The private dock for our use was excellent and the serenity of Lake Hawkins and the surrounding area was just what we needed for some family bonding time. We hope we'll be back again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Amy - sure enjoyed having you and your sisters out for a little detox. Now that you know where we are, we're expecting y'all back - ha. You're only a guest once - after that, you're family. Until next time...

PERFECT! We are going back!

This was by far the best place we could have went to for our vacation! Mom and 2 boys, 11 and 14 we could not have had a better vacation! We are looking forward to going back during the spring.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

I booked the cabin after reading several of the positive reviews and can only agree!

For two adults and two kids under 10 this cabin was more than enough space, it has everything you would ever need to have a fantastic time at the lake.

We were able to rent Allen's boat for the weekend which was a great added feature, although the lake is not very large the boat allows you to drive to the middle of the lake and enjoy cool and super clean water.( or fish etc)

I'm pretty sure we will be back either in fall or next summer

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was beautiful. I over packed, as they furnished everything. They had all the dishes, linens,detergents, etc. it was amazing. They told us all we had to bring was our food, how true. We had EVERYTHING there to prepare and serve our meals. The cottage was so tastefully decorated, made us feel so "at home:. The cabana was great ,children did a lot of fishing off dock.it is screened so we could sit there in evenings and enjoy the beautiful lake. The location of our cottage was perfect,surrounded by beautiful trees, we sat at table on deck and enjoyed our coffee. So many kinds of birds coming to the feeder (they did NOT forget anything) they had feeder near deck where blue jays,cardinals and other small birds that i do not know their names all came to feed and serenade us with their tunes. There is a beach area near cottage also that we went to every day,very clean has a pavilion to set up lunch after you take a break from swimming. Return to cottage in evening,shower and get ready for dinner. We will definitely return next year, i am even thinking of going to this cottage in the fall and enjoy cool weather and listen to rustling of leaves, the wind blowing thru the trees. We loved our stay at this location.it is beautiful and only 2 hours away from our home,very convenient. Thank you Mr and Mrs Sanders for sharing your piece of heaven with us. Hugs. A.D. Ashburn
