"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!"

"From the minute we pulled up to the Bent Oak , ALL the cares from our everyday life disappeared. We relaxed each night in the jacuzzi with wine. The back porch is amazing to sit back and listen to the breeze in the distance slowly getting closer until all the trees are swaying. We originally reserved the cabin for 2 nights. After the 1st night, we both called our jobs the next morning to extend our vacation an extra night. You are only about 5-10 minutes from the Ellen Trout Zoo as well as the antique shops in town. We will definitely be going back most likely during this winter season. Donna is a VERY knowledgeable host and will go out of her way to make your stay the best vacation experience you've had in a while. You WILL NOT be disappointed!"

"We absolutely enjoyed this cabin. Very clean and relaxing. Close to Jefferson for the party nights but away from the hustle to enjoy the sounds of the bayou. Excellent retreat for fishing. Fish were constantly jumping out of the water. Next time we will have a boat to explore the bayou. Host was easy to get a hold of when needed and extremely nice. By the way, our daughter loved the turtle shell! Thank you for the gift! Loved loved loved this cabin! We will be back!"
