"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!"

"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!"

"This property is both wonderful and wonderfully managed. Sara has give every square foot of this magnificent property a lot of love and attention. I felt like it was truly my own home. It is artsy and inspirational throughout. It is peaceful and quiet, and comes with stunning views of the Woodlands out of every window. The beds, bathrooms, kitchen and living rooms are all excellent. I slept better than in my own bed, and the neighborhood was as quiet as you will find anywhere. The kitchen was fully equipped and you can save both money and time preparing some of your own meals. The owner is very hands on and is immediately available should there be any issues or concerns which there were not. She was extraordinarily helpful and kind."

"Our group of 14 classmates Class of '66 had the best time ever. The home was so much more than expected. From the grand entrance to the fresh tulips in the den, it was amazing. Plenty of room for our group. The large kitchen was filled with all the utensils we needed. A second frig in the garage came in handy too. The bed linens and mattresses were first class, with plenty of towels for all of us. The back porches with all the seating made for long hours of visiting. The dock and cabana were comfy too. It was very peaceful and quiet. The whole home was spotless, attention to detail was obvious. The owner worked with us very well. We highly recommend this home. I just wish I had a master bedroom like that one at my home, my favorite room."
