Gun Barrel City house description

This wonderful lake rental house on a huge double lot has a boat dock for two boats, a large deck above the boat dock, 2 covered porches facing the lake, and more.

The water near the shore is great for swimming and wading with a sandy, pebble bottom and stair access to the boathouse.

The house is located on a point with 150+ feet of frontage, only an hour's drive southeast of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.

Dock your boat on the covered boat dock with electric lifts and you can be out on the lake in just a couple of minutes! If you don't have a boat or jet skis, you can rent them locally on Cedar Creek Lake. There are public boat ramps near the house, such as Chamber Island park. Sorry no motorized bikes, motor-cycyles, or 4Wheelers allowed on the property.

                  Near to the heart of Gun Barrel City, with many restaurants and stores located within a couple of miles. Canton First Monday trading days just a half hour's drive to some of the best shopping and antiquing in the world. Cedar Creek Brewery is just around the corner, with happy hour 4-7 every Thursday through Friday, or sample beers with a brewery tour on Saturday from 12-7. Tara Vineyard is ~15 miles away for tastings, tours, and high-end dining. Boat and jet ski rental available at Don's Marina, or bring your own boat and drop in at the nearby Chamber Island ramp, or any of the other ramps/marinas around the lake. A large, two slip boat house is on the property with one slip always open to guests. Or hang out in the expansive back yard with frisbee golf, washers, horseshoes, bimini ring toss, grilling, or just relaxing on the deck or boat house. Cedar Creek Lake is one of the Dallas region's best kept secrets - a fully equipped resort lake without the crowds.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Two Texas natives met 24 years ago in the heart of East Dallas and married once they had a few years under their belt. An engineer and a pharmacist added a heck of a daughter to the mix 15 years back. All three enjoy arts, music, camping, fires, movies, and DIY fun times.

                  Why Gun Barrel City:
                  Once the lakehouse bug hit us, we checked out everything within a couple of hours drive of our 100 year old house in Dallas. Cedar Creek Lake quickly took the top spot as location for it's range of activities, friendly people, fun vibes, and (let's face it) convenience to Dallas. The house in Willowwood was a perfect combination of something for everyone. Dad got the garage, boathouse, room for tools, and yard big enough for bonfires, grilling, and horseshoes all at once. Mom got decking with a waterfront view, no carpet, and a gas stovetop in a well equipped kitchen. The teen got a convenient place to swim, a huge sectional to lounge in, and room to chill with her friends sufficiently away from the parental units. While we're new to the neighborhood, we're looking forward to a lot of years cultivating our section of paradise. There's a little bit (and in some ways a lot) for everybody here in a comfortable, unpretentious atmosphere. We hope our guests find it as fun and relaxing as we do.
