About Larry Hamnett

I have been coming to Caddo Lake since I was a young boy. When you experience Caddo Lake as a child it is like going back in prehistoric times, before we knew what Jurassic Park was. I have grown-up fishing, swimming, boating, hunting, water skiing, bird-watching, and contemplating God's wonders on this unexplainable swamp. Words do it no justice, pictures only a failing eye's glimpse, the only way to know Caddo Lake is to come and "Feel" it from Sunrise to Sunrise in every Season.

Larry Hamnett purchased this lodge in 2010

Relaxing and very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Had our annual mother/daughter weekend here this year and it was great. Lots of room and the house was more than we expected. Beautiful views and relaxing evenings. Thanx so much Larry and would definitely recommend and stay again if planned any thing in the area.

VERY MISREPRESENTED!!

  • 1 of 5

The location is beautiful but it ends there.. The house was beyond dirty and had not been cleaned from the previous rental..

EVERYTHING was dusty, dirty and there was garbage and broken items all over outside. The pool was green at the bottom and we swam 1 time and it was too cloudy to use again.

The floors,corners,fans, dresser tops, dishes were all dirty. The outside deck had broken toys, items and garbage on both levels. The gas grill was UNUSABLE DUE TO FILTH AND DIRTY UTENSILS IN IT (no propane either)

No canoes, no kayaks.

There was a small glitch of the house being locked upon arrival and we were unable to get in but Larry came immediately..

We paid to be able to swim, bbq and kayak/canoe but not 1 of those were usable.

I have used vrbo to rent places as well as renting out my own property gir many years and unfortunately this owner and property make a bad name for everyone.

Very disappointed!!

Owner's Response: I spoke with the guest and told them that if they needed anything that I would do what ever they needed they did not contact me again about any problems. If they were so disappointed they should have contacted me. We will address this with the cleaning service.

Beautiful view but house needs to be sprayed for fleas!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and the view was amazing! The only problem was I was covered in flea bites on my legs and feet by the last day.. I wrote the owner to tell him of the problem and let him know the house needed to be sprayed, but he never responded to my message....and for $450 per night I don't feel we should have to deal with fleas!

Owner's Response: Sorry I did not respond. House is sprayed regularly. This occurres about once a year when a guest disregards house rule of no pets. I do not police the guest I trust them to be honest.

80th birthday family celebration!

  • 4 of 5

The home was large enough that we each had our space. We celebrated my husband eighty birthday, the pool was the thing to have everyone from 80-5 yrs of age enjoyed greatly. the property yard was large enough to play many yard games. We enjoyed the deck very much,nice places to sit and visit spend time with family. Washer and dryer came in handy.

Kitchen is lay,out well handled our family great. The only negative thing is housekeeping could be a little better. We would rent the property again!

Welcome To Uncertain Texas

What's in a name? The whole history of a town whose remote beginnings reflect the nature of the place, a place of exotic beauty, deep secrets, the haunts of wildlife where those who need respite for their souls can find harmony and peace. Uncertain, long the shores of Caddo Lake has, for over a hundred years, provided a means for launching into another world--a fishing hole, a cathedral of cypress, a paradise of the past. There are so many reasons for experiencing Caddo and Uncertain,Texas, whether it be to catch a trophy bass, reflect quietly at the water's edge , explore every nook that can float a canoe, photograph it, or paint it, Caddo Lake seems to reward, at every turn, those who come to see and feel and experience one of nature's most special places.

Caddo Lake, the mysterious and intriguing Texas treasure, is stretched across the Texas-Louisiana border. Caddo was designated in 1971, by the international Ramsar Treaty, as a "Wetlands of International Importance. Caddo is Texas' only naturally formed lake and covers 32,700 acres of a maze of channels, meandering bayous, and sloughs within thousands of acres of Spanish moss draped bald cypress.

The City of Uncertain was incorporated in 1961 as a Type B, General Law City with a mayor and five aldermen on an at large basis.

Uncertain has about 150 friendly residents who enjoy sharing their bit of paradise in Uncertain, TX with the outside world. They invite you to come and spend some time in Texas best kept secret, Caddo Lake.Caddo has been dubbed "the best photo spot in Texas.

May and June, hundreds of female Red-ear Sliders come ashore to lay eggs. The City of Uncertain posts "Turtle Crossing" signs along the roadways to alert motorists to watch for the "reptilian mothers" crossing the roads.

Caddo Lake was the site of the world's first off-shore drilling for oil.

A major pearl industry operated on Caddo Lake in the 1920s. Pearls were found in the freshwater mussels in the sandy shallows of the cypress brakes.

Steamboats, loaded with goods destined for the developing west, traveled through Caddo Lake in route to Jefferson, Texas. Because of fluctuating water levels, mooring was often "uncertain."
