About the Property

*** Now reserving FALL, HOLIDAY and 2017 dates! BOOK NOW for best availability!!! ***

Are you looking for something more than just a 'rental' lake house? The Cottage on Cedar Creek Lake may be for you...A true 'Nature Lover's' dream! This hand-crafted waterfront cottage is a 'Paradise Found'! The Cottage is best suited for four to six guests seeking quality accommodations in spectacular surroundings. Two 'queen size' beds and one kingsize bed dressed in pure cotton linens hold the promise of sweet dreams and restful sleep. The den with queen-size futon and double doors for privacy offers additional sleeping quarters for two guests, bringing the total to eight.

Farm fresh eggs, fresh roasted organic coffee beans, and a kitchen stocked with treats will make breakfast on the lake something special! Mornings at The Cottage offer sights of ducks, geese, herons and wildlife starting the day...enjoy your coffee in bed, on the porch or on the deck, whatever location you choose is sure to delight!

This storybook setting is the backdrop for total relaxation and rejuvenation. Tall pine, oak and cypress trees shade the lush lawn and overlook the lake. Dogwood and azaleas highlight in the spring!

Party deck with boat access is the perfect place to play. Situated with a spectacular open water view, the deck is at the mouth of a protected cove with a fantastic sandy swimming area.... The best swimming on Cedar Creek lake just steps from your door. (Beach towels and 'noodles' are provided for your pleasure!)

This home has everything you need to get away and have the time of your life! Inside you will find pillows, comforters, and soft, comfy throws for napping! A variety of books, cards, games, puzzles, and reading materials make sure there is something for everyone. Four televisions with 'dishNET' satellite TV, Sirius music and VHS/DVD players. For outdoor fun...gas and charcoal grills, woodburning campfire pit (perfect for s'mores!), croquet, horseshoes, and 'washers' to show off your skill! Rocking chairs, picnic tables with umbrellas, chaise lounges are provided for relaxation, and there's even a tree swing for lazy afternoons.

Natural slate floors, hand-hewn pine paneling, and comfy rustic décor will make you feel right at home and want to stay! All this AND a heated slate floor in the bathroom for those cool mornings! The Cottage is truly 'the' perfect retreat on Cedar Creek to see for yourself!

*** MAPS (mapquest, google,etc.) are NOT accurate for this area! (Driving directions will be sent when reservation is confirmed.)

We love pets, but no pets are allowed at The Cottage. We love smokers, too, but smoking is only allowed outside of The Cottage. Sand filled urns are provided.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Country boys at heart with a great appreciation for the finer things in life! We love the feeling of being near the water....the wooded, rustic charm of our homes and the natural setting. Animals lovers....we share our land with our flock of heirloom breed laying hens, ducks, geese, a small herd of dairy goats and four llamas! Come see why we call it 'paradise'!

Why the Owner Chose Mabank, TX, USA:
We searched the lake for over a year to find the perfect location for our own vacation home. The top priorities for us were privacy and a sense of seclusion.....we simply did not want to look out and see 10 boathouses or stare at a bank of homes and neighbors across a cove. We also wanted a firm, sandy swimming area, protection from the heavy boat traffic and choppiness of wide open water, but we wanted a open water view. As nature lovers, we also wanted to be nestled in wooded setting for shade, wildlife and natural beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We made the decision to focus on providing our guests with a little something extra when staying with us.....from high quality linens (Freshly pressed!), to farm fresh eggs from our own laying hens, we work to 'surprise and delight' each guest on their visit. Whether it's a new furnishing, art or antique, we strive to keep our homes crisp and updated with constant improvements. Repeat visitors and referrals from previous guests are the mainstay of our business. We're told our homes 'feel like home'....and are just as 'fresh and clean as the first visit'....this tells us we are doing something right!
