"This lakefront cabin provides the essentials for a pleasant vacation at a fair price. The cabin also comes with a canoe and a small boat, which were critical for us as the dock was unreachable from land due to high lake levels. That's a good problem to have, no complaints, but if you're expecting to walk out onto a dock you may want to research first. It was easy enough to launch the boat from land, as there is a set of stone steps descending to the water.
The large master bedroom is on the first floor, with a full bathroom attached. The other bedrooms are at the top of a steep set of stairs, and you must pass through one bedroom (with a full bed) to reach the second bedroom (two twin mattresses on floor-level frames). This setup was not a problem for us, but renters with small children, mobility issues, or privacy needs should be aware.
Each room has its own A/C unit on the wall, so individual preferences can be accommodated. The second bathroom is off of the living area, with a clothes dryer (but no washer, as stated in the property description). The living area is quite large and the deck is ample - we enjoyed using both. The kitchen is adequate for simple meals, and there is a charcoal grill available. We brought our own deep fryer and were pleased to catch enough fish to need it!
Regarding food, there is a WalMart Neighborhood Market in the town of Lone Star, the closest location to pick up fresh grocery items. For eating out, we highly recommend Five D Cattle Co. in Avinger for a great dinner. They take reservations, and are willing to split meals between diners.
As many reviewers have stated, the sunsets here are lovely!"

"This house was well suited for our group of 13. We had 4 small children ( ages 6-2). It is open and bright with beautiful views of the lake, while being situated in a quiet neighborhood and cove. The home is well maintained. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. The large, well-equipped kitchen is great with 2 refrigerators and ample pantry. Having a bathroom with a tub and a toy bin right off the kitchen was great with the little ones so we could keep an eye on them. There are a lot of stairs and the baby gate was very appreciated! The pool and patio area is very nice, as was the boat dock. We had 2 boats. The owners have lots of rules, but that helps keep the place nice. They are very easy to communicate with. Hope to make it back!"

"My family and me decided to slow down this vacation so we chose the Crappie house and we loved it. The cabin was clean and comfortable and Mike and Ruth were very helpful. We spent every morning fishing and caught tons of fish and spent the afternoons out exploring the area. The weather was a little rough but it made it really nice sitting out on the deck watching the waves in the lake. Even the wife and kids said they would want to come back and considering that they are more used to beaches and Disney World that is saying something. We love it so take my suggestion and have a relaxing vacation for a change."
