Toledo Bend Overlook Fishing Cabin

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 bd, 1 bath with fantastic elevated lake views and boat launch

Adorable fisherman's cabin sitting high on a bluff overlooking Toledo Bend, BassMasters' pick for 2 years in a row as the best bass fishing lake in the U.S. Views, views, views! Home is located in neighborhood equipped with dock and boat launch, on the Texas side, directly across from Cypress Bend Golf Club Resort. Fire pit and covered porch are great areas to sit and enjoy the view, sunsets and wildlife. Big pines in and around the area sway with the breeze and you may catch a glimpse of a local fox. The home is nostalgic, clean and comfortable, quiet and relaxing. All the comforts of home in a getaway and a good place to lay your head between tournament days!

About Kate and Clint Powell

Welcome to Toledo Bend! We moved to Houston in 2011 and in an effort to see what fun we could find in Texas, we started travelling with friends to different places. We visited Toledo Bend and it soon became a yearly event - fishing, boating, water sports, good times. We decided to make this lake area our getaway and found this quaint cabin fulfilled our needs! We've truly enjoyed getting to know the lake, escape the Houston traffic and unwind watching the wildlife, fishing and enjoying the peace and quiet. We hope you will love being there as much as we do!

Kate and Clint Powell purchased this house in 2012

Why Kate and Clint Powell chose Hemphill

The neighborhood offers a private boat launch, about 5 houses away from this property. The area has year-round residents who are very friendly and helpful. The cabin is cozy, dry and offers some of the best views!

What makes this house unique

In the fall through spring, we enjoy watching the eagles fly around and the beautiful sunsets. In the summer, the water sports keep us busy. Plus, you can fish year-round!

Perfect fishing camp

  • 5 of 5

Perfect weekend for a fishing trip-


*boat ramp just down the hill 1 minute from the house

*house is supplied with everything you need

*we only had two guys but 4 guys could have easily sleeped comfortably (1 full, 1 full/twin bunk, 1 futon bed

*nice backyard patio overlooking the lake

*reasonably priced

*super cozy


*front door leads into one of the bedrooms (weird layout)

*grass was not cut

*backyard is narrow / surrounded by neighbors

Great place all in all, we caught fish, ate like kings and drank like fish, highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the cabin, Dustin! It's a great spot in a quiet neighborhood. The grass is mowed now, and we've had a lot of rain lately, keeping us on our toes with the mowing. We hope you'll return again soon!
