Hawkins cottage description

This quaint, fully-furnished lakefront cottage is perfect for family vacations, guy's fishing retreats, girl's getaways, a couple of couples or a romantic getaway with your honey. Overlooking one of the clearest, spring-fed lakes in Texas (the same aquifer that Ozarka and Nestle gets their spring water feeds Lake Hawkins), this 1-bedroom, 1 bath has everything you need to get outta town and forget about the 'real world' for a while. The bedroom, with a Queen-size bed and the Queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area can accomodate a small family or 2 couples. Watch the sun rise over the lake from the deck as you're enjoying your morning coffee. Enjoy our screened-in cabana, private boat dock for securing your boat, fishing, swimming and sun-bathing and lots of room to play, walk, run, cycle, motorcycle or just chill. A public beach at Lake Hawkins County Park is down the road, just a few minutes away. You’ll want “our place” to be your “your place” for your next intimate getaway. Ask about our pontoon boat rental for a complete lake experience!


We're 100 miles east of Dallas, 100 west of Shreveport and within minutes of Mineola, Gladewater and Jefferson with scores of antique shops, lakes, wineries and some of the best fishing, boating and motorcycle riding in the country! Lake Fork, Lake of the Pines, Lake Palestine, Lake Holbrook, Lake Winnsoro, Lake Gilmer, Lake Quitman are just minutes away. So spend a weekend on beautiful Lake Hawkins or spend a week and fish them all!

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: Allen and Rhonda are semi-retired and live nearby within the community. Rhonda is artsy and creative. Allen loves to fish and ride his Harley. Both are very involved and active their local church and both love to make music and enjoy serving people.

                      Why Hawkins:
                      We have lived on Lake Hawkins for over 10 years in a fabulous log home and my neighbor decided to sell her little weekend place. So with a little TLC and my wife's creativity, we fashioned this great little cottage into something that looks like it belongs on a Montana river or off the coast of Maine. Its pitched ceiling, exposed beams and a tastefully-decorated fishing motiff, just feels like you're miles from everything.
