About Trudy Butler

I'm a registered nurse working part time as a home health nurse. We left Houston in 2002 to get away from the traffic and noise. This cabin has been my latest restoration project. I'm ready to share it with family, friends and you.

Why Trudy Butler chose Lake Livingston

I'm a sucker for any property that needs help. This property was abandoned and covered with vines and the yard was completely covered with brush, vines and dead trees. I immediately saw the potential and have completely restored it. I'm sure you will enjoy the cabin and it's close proximity to the water.

What makes this cabin unique

Great location for boating, fishing, hunting or just getting away from the city or stressful job. The cabin is clean and towel, linens, blankets are provided. We are on a quite street where you might see deer, rabbits and birds. Neighborhood park has picnic tables and a long fishing pier.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to stay away from everything but not to far away from the store if needed to go. Will rent again

Fun for a weekend

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was pretty much what I had in mind. The things I would have changed was having extra toilet paper, more pest control, maybe pressure washing the outside of the house (TONS of spider webs and eggs)...I understand it's in the woods but I still don't like cockroaches, spiders and fire ants. There was a cockroach on the wall in the kitchen next to the stove when I was cooking and my son stepped in a fire ant hill right near the patio and had 42 ant bites on his ankles. I just wish the yard would have been treated and pest control would have been used in and around the house. Other than that it was cozy and charming and Trudy did a good job making me feel welcomed and even waived check out time so we could stay longer.

Owner's Response: Jordan, Thank you for pointing out the problems you encountered at my property. It is my utmost priority to keep the cabin safe and welcoming for my guests. I clean the cabin each week and have not seen any insects but will arrange for an exterminator immediately. No one wants to see bugs especially a roach. I am so sorry your son was bitten by ants. I have been spot treating the ant hills. That evidently needs to be extended to the entire yard. And about those pesky spiders. I sweep down the webs the morning a guest is expected to arrive. Those darn spiders are very industrious and just keep spinning those webs. You are so right about pressure washing. That has been on my to do list for a while. I'll put that at the top of the list and then spray and insecticide to try to hold them back for a while. Thank you again for visiting my property. I hope you will consider coming again. Best Regards, Trudy

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Very private, and great place if you plan on being on the water for most of your visit. Boat ramp close and after a day of fishing great place to come back to and enjoy your evenings in the woods

Easy and clean

  • 4 of 5

House was easy to locate and enter. It was in clean condition but smaller than appears on the website, very secluded. Perfect for someone who is not planning on being there the entire trip. We spent time under the covered porch but mostly was out and about on the nearby lake. Lake access isn't as close as portrayed, you'll want to drive there. It is def in the woods so bring your bug spray if you plan on being outside. Comfortable mattresses and good water pressure in the shower.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a couple days for a bass tourney. The house is perfect other than it's a tight squeeze to back a boat in the driveway. The house was very clean and comfortable. It is really close to Kickapoo creek boat ramp and local restaurants. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

Great place, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fully equipped house, all you have to do is show up with personal items and food. We ended up "hosting" Thanksgiving dinner for 9 and everyone had a great time. Quiet street, close to the lake with a private park. Will definitely be back.
