    "Great home in the beautiful woods of East Texas. Our deer lease is 1.4 miles from the home so we are so pleased to have this beautiful home to stay in. It's perfect for a relaxing weekend even if you aren't hunting. Beautiful property on a hill with Texas pines all around. It's really an great home to come home to! 5 stars for sure!"

  • Fantastic 4th of July!!!

    "The Lake House and boat dock were great! It was beyond all of our expectations, especially the fishing right from the dock. We spent 90% of our time on the dock with convenience of satellite TV, fishing, grilling, sunning and swimming right at our fingertips. The kids enjoyed the hot tub! We had not just one, but two, fabulous nights of fireworks viewable right from the convenience of the boat dock. The family games, puzzles, movies and wifi were a great bonus! We are already planning our return trip!!"

  • nice place

    "Well, at first sight it wasn't quite what we expected from the pictures which made me a little sick. But once you walk inside and give it a chance to settle in on you, its a great place for a family get together. Plenty of room, nice and clean. The lake access isnt bad if you have a boat but dont expect somewhere to swim. Its also very close to the highway which also isnt mentioned - to the point you can see/hear the cars go by through the trees. The neighborhood isnt the nicest either. Its still a nice place, just maybe a little overpriced when you consider the entire package. The neighbors have no problem driving through the yard or parking their boats in your way so you have to get your feet wet leaving your boat to go up to the house - which isnt the renter's fault, but still it happens."

  • Perfect hideaway for peace and quiet!!

    "My husband and I visited Treehouse for a short getaway for peace and quiet. The pictures show all the rooms but when you walk in it actually looks bigger. It is an efficiency but for my 6' man he was comfortable and pleased. The bed was very comfortable and entire place was very clean. Kitchen was stocked and as all the comments said the biscuits were fantastic. We also asked to buy a dozen farm fresh eggs. The lake was absolutely beautiful and we caught numerous fish, mostly bass. We took a boat out with a trolling motor and cruised all over it allowing us to get to other areas...and just enjoy the beauty. All you hear are fish splashes, frogs, the birds, and the cows. We really enjoyed this little hideaway. We felt all by ourselves. The owners are very sweet and helpful (Paula even helped us at 11 pm). Thank you, Paula. We look forward to bringing our kids and staying in a bigger property there."
