Super Thanksgiving family celebration
What a great house. It is even nicer than the pictures! The property is just like your own private island with great water views from the house and out at the point. The location is central to everything in the area since it is close to I-20. Our whole family loved our stay. We are definitely coming back.

We stayed here for a long weekend last summer and had a blast! The kids loved swimming off the dock and the beach. We enjoyed the beautiful views, the lovely house and the quiet evenings. Our friends stayed at the Ritz Carlton, and were envious that we took the extra time to find something this special. They spent most evenings with us out on the point watching the lake and having drinks. Their kids even spent a night with us. There wasn't much traffic at all on the lake in this area, so the water was calm enough for the older kids to take out their kayak. The younger kids fished off the doc with my husband and caught a lot. It was a wonderful weekend and we will definitely be going back.
