"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!"

"I rented the Tree House for my daughter and her husband, he is working a long term job in Longview; their home is in Dallas. So this was sorta mid way for a week end together.
They enjoyed the quiet, peaceful, and private time. Told me the Tree House was beautiful and very nicely decorated, very clean and they felt so welcome.
The views were awesome, too cold for boating/fishing/hiking. But, will definitely be returning.
The owners, Paula, was so sweet to ensure our children had a much needed weekend together, making sure they had information of surrounding towns for dinner, adding eggs and those famous biscuits for them.
Look forward to a spring or summer visit.
Diane Wheeler, the mom."

"We had a wonderful lake vacation with friends. We had 3 families with 13 people total and plenty of space! A lot of stairs in the house, but that didn't affect us or the kids. The house had everything we needed, even plenty of pool towels. We enjoyed most of our time by the pool area, which was our favorite...beautiful landscaping, and evenings on the deck in the rocking chairs. The owners are great to work with. Would highly recommend it!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed the house and the property is a prime spot with a great view of the lake from any spot in the house, especially in the early morning coffee hours. I highly recommend a weeks stay at least, to get the full affect of relaxing. The style of deco is beautiful and warm with a real family touch to it."
