Top Notch Log House Rental
Top Notch Log House Rental
We found this to be the perfect house for our family. We knew the minute we walked in we had chosen the right place. It is a log house and the decor was perfect for the house.Very very clean and spacious with all All the modern conveniences. The furniture was very comfortable. The beds were even more comfortable.. The bedrooms were designed for privacy for large families.Had a washer and dryer The front entrance had a wonderful seating area with rockers and a great swing. The children could go exploring in the woods. There was a heated boat house which was perfect. You can go fishing off the pier or on the lake which is facing the house. Just walk down the steps and across the street and you are at the lake. The back area of the house has a fire pit with comfortable chairs. We have rented other places before and found this to be our favorite. This was just a perfect place for us. We feel sure we will rent from this nice couple again. We recommend highly

This home is EXACTLY as pictured which in itself is beautiful! My entire family enjoyed The Sanders' home tremendously. The house was beautiful inside and out and was extremely well kept. The decor is impecable and any and everything you might need to cook with is found in their kitchen.These owners take great pride in their home and it shows. We are already wanting to go back soon and stay even longer! Don't hesitate and miss out on this great opportunity to rent this beautiful lakehouse. Coffy

Owner response: Wow Coffy - this place sounds so great, I'd like to stay there - hah! We thoroughly enjoyed having you and your crew stay with us and I do hope you're making plans to stay with us again. Thanks again for the kind words. Hope to see you and your crew again soon! Allen and Rhonda Sanders
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It was exactly as described. Our kids had so much fun playing hide-n-seek upstairs and loved the beach on the lake (which was only minutes away). We will definitely keep your properties in mind for future family reunions Great memories captured with my sisters, all of our kids and our dad Thanks again, Anna

Owner response: We thoroughly enjoyed having you and your family stay with us Anna. Always makes us smile to see families get away and create great memories together, Isn't that a great little beach at the RV Park? BTW - that must have been the "hide-n-seek champion" that I found still hiding in the closet after y'all left - hah...just kidding, you didn't leave any kids. Please come stay with us again. Allen and Rhonda
We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. We even had hummingbird food and other bird feed for several bird feeders scattered throughout the grounds. The lake is awesome. There is a grassy bottom when you first jump in from the dock, but if you swim out a few feet you cannot even reach the bottom. There is very little boat traffic and we spent all day floating in the water.

Owner response: Thanks Donna - we sure enjoyed having you stay with us. Watching the hummingbirds and other wild birds and squirrels was one of our favorite things to do while we were enjoying our coffee on the porch, so we figured our guests would too. We will be expecting yalll back next year, if not before - hah!
This property was even more beautiful than the photos. Everything we needed to enjoy our family time together. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your home. Hope to come again. The Galantay's Dallas, Texas

Home Away says it all. Staying in this lovely home, you could tell it was loved and well taken care of. My 13 yr old Grandson wanted to move there he loved it so much. It was hard to leave. I would highly recommend this home to anyone. Thank you for sharing your home. Peggy Morrow

Owner response: We sure enjoyed having you and your grandson out Peggy. I've always wondered what $500 worth of fireworks looked like and now I know - hah! The lake is such a great place to be anytime, but especially on the Fourth of July when you can shoot rockets out into the water. Hope this will be the first of many happy returns for you and your family. Allen and Rhonda Sanders

Why the Owner Chose Hawkins:
We've lived in this lovely log home for almost 10 years and decided that we could share it with other folks and still come visit it whenever we didin't have guests. We love Lake Hawkins - so peaceful and relaxing.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Lake Hawkins was the first lake that I fished when I moved to the Dallas area almost 30 years ago. I thought, 'I would love to live here some day', and the rest, as they say, is history.
