About the property

A perfect getaway to relax and make memories at this piece of paradise!

$100 off a 3-night stay or $50 off a 2-night stay in January or February! Check out Camp Canoe's renovation! The cabin sleeps 6 and includes a boat slip. The main floor living area is open to the kitchen and dining area and every floor to ceiling window showcases great lake views. Two downstairs bedrooms each have a queen bed and TV, with a shared bathroom in between, and the cozy loft upstairs has 2 twin beds and a bathroom. *New- sheets and towels are now provided!!* One of only a few rentals on the lake, we also own the cabin next door, "Lakeview Canoe", which sleeps 8; check out that listing (VRBO #790965).

The fully furnished kitchen has fresh paint, a new backsplash, stainless steel refrigerator and everything you need. Take in the views from the huge deck with a patio table and a Weber grill. A kayak and paddle board are available and life jackets are provided. The fire pit with seating is just off the deck on the lawn. Bring your boat or jet ski because a boat slip (11 feet wide x 22 feet long) is available on the shared community dock.

The updated property features new interior and exterior paint, all new furnishings and decor and a fun 'camp' theme. A set of sheets will be stacked on each bed for you to make up on arrival. Sorry, but per the Homeowner's Association Guidelines, no pets are allowed. A housekeeping fee for cleaning the property after check-out will be included.

Lake Cypress Springs was named by D Magazine as one of the “Best Kept Secrets” in Texas. At 3400 acres and 7 miles long, the spring-fed lake is located in the East Texas piney woods of Franklin County. It is situated between the towns of Mount Vernon, Winnsboro, Pittsburg, and Mount Pleasant.

Only 90 minutes from Dallas, the property is easy to get to and is in the private, gated community of Barker Creek. Boat ramps are just minutes away to launch water toys, and the community dock is close for incredible fishing, fun swimming and a slip for your boat. No trailers inside the community, but trailer parking is available in the field outside the gate. Sorry, there is nowhere to rent boats on the lake.

About Carla Everett

Our family loves Lake Cypress Springs and we would like to share this amazing place with you. We live in a north Dallas suburb and love the easy escape to lake life!

Carla Everett purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Carla Everett chose Scroggins

After visiting friends at Lake Cypress Springs, we knew we had to be a part of this beautiful place! We purchased the Lakeview Canoe property in the fall of 2015 and started renovations. Then, in early 2017 when the property next door became available, we decided to do it again and began updating Camp Canoe!

The picturesque views, stunning sunsets, water activities and the slower pace of life have made for happy memories with family and friends. The small town quaintness of the nearby communities are fun to explore, yet offer all the conveniences we need.

What makes this cabin unique

Camp Canoe and Lakeview Canoe are two of the few rentals on Lake Cypress Springs. Both this property and the one next door, Lakeview Canoe (vrbo #790965) can be rented together for larger group gatherings, sleeping up to 14!

Hidden Gem among the Lake and Woods

  • 5 of 5

Truly pleased with this find out in Cypress Springs Lake. Lake House had all the amenites you might need to make your stay more comfortable. Recently updated and everything felt like new. Very clean and beds were comfortable. Hostess had great communication prior and during stay. Will definitely return to this lil hideaway in the woods.

Cute place on the water.

  • 5 of 5

It’s in a small gated community with a large area on the water. Small beach, tire swing, fire pit and kayaks. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable to stay. The host are very accommodating and I was pleased with the time spent. My only discomfort was the upstairs loft gets extremely hot before the rest of the house gets warm. It was in the 20’s when we stayed so we bought a space heater and it resolved the issue.

Spectacular view and warm and cozy cottage.

  • 4 of 5

This is one of the nicer cottages on the Lake that we've stayed at. Less than a 100' from the water, deck and boat dock with a beach area. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of 5, very clean, cozy and inviting. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was it is close to a highway and does have at times a lot of traffic noise.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

The front windows with the lake views are wonderful. We enjoyed sitting on the large porch and watching the boats and birds and all of nature. The cabin is very charming and is decorated straight out of a magazine. This is now our go to place when we want out of the city. I wish there were linens and towels provided, otherwise it was perfect!

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks for making us your go-to place! Just taking in the sights from the deck is one of my favorite ways to relax too!

Awesome family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Camp Canoe for a quiet family getaway and couldn't have been more pleased. The cabin has been updated and is in excellent condition. The house is well appointed and nicely decorated. Perhaps our favorite amenities were the kayak and paddle board which kept us busy the entire time. Lake Cypress Springs is a gem. We will definitely return.
