Beautiful Lake Conroe is right in your own backyard. Rest, relax or recreate in this spacious, restful, fully furnished home. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets. Catch and cook catfish, bass, crappie and brim right off the dock. Kayak the coves or row to the island where you can sun bathe on the man made sandy beach.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We don't post front yard photos, the address or the map for security purposes. We know that is important to travelers so if you are a serious inquirer, we are happy to give you that info. We love our neighbors and want to respect there privacy. We know those of you who may be interested in our home will understand. We LOVE sharing our home with families, church retreats, corporate travelers, Snow Birds, Senior Travelers...what a joy it is to have such a great home and be able to allow others to enjoy a relaxing home away from home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Willis:
                  We always dreamed of having a retreat camp...when 'The Eagle's Nest' fell into our lap, we could not have imagined how our retreat camp idea would turn out to be a retreat home. We bought the house from family with the idea of renting it and eventually retiring here...but God had other plans...and His plans are always so much better!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Besides all of the already mentioned benefits, the lake house is laid out where the bedrooms are on one end, the family room with the television is in the middle, and the kitchen, dining and large game room/den area are on the far end. Several guests have commented that we need to let people know more about the layout, because it is so functional. When the football game is going on the big TV in the living room, the rest of the family (not so interested in the noisy TV) have a great place to gather and play games, cook, eat...just enjoy being together. Oh! And we have converted the garage into a game room for foosball and airhockey. Other benefits are a large back yard with shade trees, a boat dock to fish and enjoy the water and the sunsets.
