Frankston house description

Relax at our beautiful new lake home with expansive yard on a private peninsula in Cobb Cove, Lake Palestine. Enjoy napping in the hammock, reading on the covered deck or downstairs porch, or taking a walk through the private neighborhood. Great fishing is available from your own private pier and the sunrise is breathtaking.

Our recommendation - particularly in fall, winter and spring: prepare a feast with the whole family and then settle in around the gas fireplace or out on the deck with the cool evening air and bright stars above.
