Lake Bob Sandlin cabin description

We invite you to our lakefront log home located on beautiful Lake Bob Sandlin in the Piney Woods of East Texas. Our special place is nestled among tall pine, maple and hickory trees in a quaint, private setting…the perfect retreat to relax and unwind away from the frantic pace of city life, while getting reacquainted with nature. From fishing, water skiing, sunbathing, swimming, hiking, nature walks, biking and more – it’s right outside the window of our cozy home. Perfect for your family, friends or that special someone to create memories in an extraordinary environment. Great for quilt and scrap booking retreats… and don’t forget our fishing tournaments.

You will want to rise-n-shine early in the morning to enjoy your coffee on the back porch or deck while enjoying the 210 degree view of the lake. Grab your paper or fishing pole and head down to our private dock to relax in the rocking chairs to witness the sunrise and the lake come to life. Lake Bob Sandlin is approximate 10,000 acres with a 120 mile shoreline known for its trophy fishing and an abundance of ducks, coots, heron and other birds. During the winter months, we have witnessed two bald eagles in our back yard. Let’s not forget the raccoons, squirrels and deer! If fishing is not your forte, then swing lazily in our lakeside hammocks reading your favorite book while enjoying spectacular views of the lake. Plenty of antique shops and places to eat in nearby Mount Vernon, Mount Pleasant and Pittsburg…just minutes away.

Our two story log home has a vaulted ceiling with a stone fireplace…with views of the lake. During the winter months, you can nestle by the fireplace or make s’mores in the chimeniea on the deck. The dining area is open to the fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster and blender while the ironing board, iron, washer and dryer are located in the utility room. Full cookware and dinnerware. Custom stained glass windows add color and light…while much of the furniture is handcrafted from logs…adding to the coziness of our home. The large breakfast counter/food prep area is highlighted by a mosaic of the Texas Flag while discretely tucking away a complete entertainment center that includes TV, DirectTV Satellite with XM Radio, DVD and Video Game System … with a limited library of music, movies and games. The video tape library is extensive as well as board games…just in case it rains. Yes, we now offer FREE Wi-Fi...ask for details. By the way, the perfect place for rain is on the back porch as the rain hits the tin roof.

Each of the 3 bedrooms is furnished with comfortable queen size beds. The downstairs master bedroom offers a TV/DVD/VCR combo, antique furnishing and a wonderful view of the lake…a perfect view to wake up to. The two bedrooms upstairs also offer TV/VCR units, one with lake view and the other with a view of the tree tops.

Ready for romance? For the adults, we have a hot tub on the rear deck…perfect for night time use while stargazing.

Enjoy dazzling sunsets, great fishing, and the serenity of the outdoors. Bring your boat or jet ski (rentals nearby) to explore the lake. Sunbathe, swim or float the day away.
