About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with lake front property and boat house

Toledo Bend Lake, voted the best bass fishing lake by Bassmaster magazine in 2016! Come on over and enjoy this relaxing waterfront private home with all the furnishings. A place, to swim, tie up your boat and enjoy excellent bass fishing right off the dock!

This beautiful lake house sits inside a quaint deep water cove that is situated on the famous “chicken coop” on Toledo Bend Lake. This one story home is located in an upscale neighborhood, and it is tastefully furnished with French country cottage style décor and furniture.

The master bedroom is equipped with its own master bath, queen bed, 42 inch flat screen TV (with satellite) and a sitting area to enjoy a cup coffee in the morning while the sun rises.

The second bedroom, decorated with “Americana” décor, has two twin beds, and is furnished with an assortment of kid’s toys and games. This room also boasts spectacular lake views.

The third guest bedroom is furnished with a queen bed with soothing earth tones, and a garden view, where you can watch the birds come in to feed each morning at the feeder.

The family room boasts a roomy area for entertaining, with plenty of seating, beautiful views of the lake, a 46 inch TV, (with satellite) and a fireplace for the chilly winter days. It also has a a nice sized desk just in case you have some work to do while you are here. (High speed internet/WIFI included)

The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked and equipped with upscale stainless steel appliances, gas stove, and 2 ovens, and of course a pro fish filet knife set.

The outdoor entertaining areas includes a covered porch, with stainless steel gas grill, a fish "fry daddy" and plenty room for outdoor dining and entertaining.

The covered boat house has areas to tie up your boat, a fish cleaning station, and chairs to sit and fish or relax while enjoying the beautiful views of Toledo Bend Lake.

Unlike many homes for rent in East Texas, this home is stocked with plenty of bath and beach towels, paper products and soaps. This not your Dad's fishing cabin! While the fishing is extraordinary here, the whole family will enjoy the beauty, the convenience, and comforts of this well maintained home.

About Kim

We visit our lakehome regularly when it is not being rented out to other vacationers. We have used VRBO quite frequently when we vacation around the United States, so we are quite aware of what renters need and look for when leasing a home for vacations.

Kim purchased this house in 2015

Why Kim chose Milam

We first rented a few other properties in the area, through VRBO on Toledo Bend lake and fell in love with the beauty and tranquility of this area. However, we often had a difficult time finding reasonably priced homes that boasted the charm, yet upscale feel that this home had to offer.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home when we entered the front door and immediately in front of us was a wall of windows that framed the beautiful views of the lake.

The house is beautiful and very spacious. The yard is very nice and having your own dock to fish off of was really nice too. We caught a few catfish in the afternoon/evening. Kim, the owner was very helpful and was always prompt in replying when I had a question.

This is the second time we have been fortunate to enjoy this beautiful home!! The furnishings are unbelievable and the property is more than anyone can believe. We caught several fish right off the pier, I am sure fishing is normally better as we had the tropical storm, Cindy coming in so the water was not as calm as usual. The only thing you need to bring here is food as the only grocery store is 30 miles or so away. The yard is fenced in, so if you have small children, you could enjoy them while sitting on the deck without worrying about the water being too close. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Our home is remote like most homes on Toledo Bend Lake but Hemphill is only about 15 miles away which has a Brookshire Brothers Grocery store along with other small retailers. There is also a marina 5 minutes away that stocks ice, milk and fishing bait etc. Perhaps you were to busy having fun to notice! Thanks again and come back soon!

Beautiful Home and Beautiful Scenery

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home tucked back in a little cove. Spectacular fun for the husbands and kids and relaxing for the moms. The fishing was outstanding.

Fred and Kim are excellent host. We were greeted with a note and goodies for our stay. The home is spacious and decorated to perfection. We will definitely be returning to enjoy another wonderful vacation in this piece of paradise.

Unforgettable Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was incredible. The property owners go out of their way to make sure everything is just right for your stay. The home is absolutely gorgeous and the view of the water is breathtaking. We caught plenty of fish right off the pier and even saw some otters swim by. This trip was a family get away and will be a special memory for us all. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an above ordinary get away.

We have rented another property a short distance away, not only was it NOT clean(, we did get our cleaning fee returned,) but the cabin is on a high bluff, which we knew, but once you did get down to the fishing pier (shared with 3 other properties) you had a 75 or more steps down to actually get to the water. Not only is this property spotless, but the back slopes to the water, with your own fishing pier. The neighbors are not on top of you, you have your own deck to sit and enjoy the view, or get down to the water and fish!! This is perfect for a family or two couples, the master is on the other side of the home from the two other bedrooms .All the appliances and everything else in the house are top class. We hope to have the opportunity to return again, . and I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful home.

A fun, cozy little lake house

  • 5 of 5

My stay was excellent! You can thoroughly enjoy yourself and have a good time at this lake house. The lake is beautiful, along with the weather. While you stay in this house, you'll find it's very relaxing and enjoyable. You can also enjoy some good fishing off the dock. I would definitely go again.
