Property description

Located on the main part of Sam Rayburn Lake, you will love watching the sunset from the back porch. During the day, watch your children swim, jet ski, or boat from the porch. Feel free to use the megaphone to announce lunch or dinner. Sandy beaches are located on either sides of the house. PLEASE NOTE: To get to the lake is a rock wall which has steps. These rock steps may be difficult to navigate for young children or older adults.

When the sun sets, retreat inside to a pool table, 3 DirectTVs with DVD players, or use the Bose speakers to listen to your music while you grill on the back porch or relax inside playing cards or board games that are provided.

The master bedroom has a king bed. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The third bedroom has a bunk bed with a double on bottom and a single on top. In addition, there are two single mattresses in the loft and a couch. In the den, there is a pull out couch.

The house is located less than 5 minutes drive from Rayburn Country Club, where you will find 27 holes of golf, a basketball court and a tennis court. Boat ramps are minutes away. Launch your boat or jet ski and anchor them on buoys in front of the house. In addition, 2 marinas, Umphrey Pavilion, the Texas State Fish Hatchery, and Sam Rayburn dam are less than a 10 minute drive from the house. Just minutes from the house you will find convenient stores, a liquor store, bait and tackle stores, and a meat market. For dining in the area, The Stump and The Rayburn Country Club are good choices. Within 15 minutes you can be in Jasper where you will find several meat markets, Walgreens, Super WalMart, Catfish Cabin and any other restaurants or stores you might need.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: A family of four that uses the Sam Rayburn lake house as a retreat from their busy lives in Houston. We are avid golfers and enjoy spending the afternoon at Sam Rayburn having Happy Hour in the lake with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Brookeland:
We have been going to Sam Rayburn for over 25 years with our kids. We initially rented houses there and eventually bought a house with the best view of the lake.

Unbelievable sun sets Golfing (9, 18, or 27 Holes) at a moments notice The house is conveniently located to all the amenities you need but still provides the peaceful privacy you would be looking for. Located in the best neighborhood on the lake.
