About the property

Looking to relax & get away with your family or friends? Tournament on Lake Fork? Come stay at Paradise Cove Lake House on beautiful Lake Quitman! Located 1 hour and 45 minutes east of Dallas, this premier lake property has 100 feet of waterfront with an open view, sandy shoreline and not in an area of choppy waters so you can dock up your boat or jet skis overnight. One of the unique features of this property is we have a beach area. We have brought in sand over the years so you can walk into the water. And, not to worry, you can still do cannonballs off the end of the dock! Another unique feature is our large dock with room to sun & fish but also a covered area for dining and shade. In the Summer, your group will appreciate the covered dock with fan to take a break from the sun.

While our home is less then 1,800 SF, the back porch is where you will eat, drink and enjoy the view the entire weekend! It has two large rockers, two loungers, conversation set with love seat & dining table. It is completely covered and has porch fans!

Kitchen features stainless appliances and stocked kitchen including a Kuerig to enjoy your morning coffee on the deck. The sun room bar is used to serve food for larger groups. Guest bath has a tiled tub/shower combo and linen closet filled with bath towels (and even some extra beach towels if you forget your own). Master bath has a large stand up tile shower. Utility room has a washer/dryer and ice machine.

There is no internet and this is intentional. This gives everyone a chance to unplug and enjoy the lake life. We do have cable television, 2 televisions with DVD players, one in Master bedroom and one in Living room.

Main house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, sleeping up to 8 adults plus bunks for children. Bunk house sleeps an additional 4 guests and has a full Bath.

About Lindsey Johnson

My husband and I live about 30 minutes from the lake house. We've had many memories on Lake Quitman with family owning properties on this lake since 2006. We have two children and love spending quality time with them and our family at the lake.

Lindsey Johnson purchased this house in 2013

Why Lindsey Johnson chose Quitman

We love our side of the lake- Paradise Cove. With having young kiddos, we love that we have a beach where they can walk in. Over the years we have brought in white sand to fill our beach area. The views are amazing and with our location, we are not in an area of choppy waters which is definitively a benefit when you have a boat in the slip or tied up to the dock. The porch.... it's cozy and relaxing. It will be where you spend all of your time when you are not in the water. Plenty of space to eat, read a book, take a nap and just enjoy the lake view and time with family & friends.

What makes this house unique

The dock has a sun area and covered area with a fan. Also, our back porch is completely covered with ceiling fans as well. These benefits are huge in the Summer months when you need a break from the sun but still want to be outside!

Great House on a Beautiful Lake! Great for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. Lake Quitman is beautiful and we spent every morning enjoying the sunrise over the lake on the large back porch. The bedrooms were very comfortable for our group of 5 adults and 5 kids. Our favorite part was the large fire pit down by the water. It got used every evening. If you are looking for a great place to relax and enjoy some fishing and kayaking around a great lake then this is your place! We are looking forward to coming back in the future. Also, this house is only about 5 miles from the Minnow Bucket on Lake Fork, so if you're looking to fish at Fork, this is a great place to stay.

Perfect location and feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as seen in the pictures. Very comfortable to return to after a long day on Lake Fork. Very spacious and cool. We sat out on the back porch almost every night. The Johnson's set us up for a comfortable stay and made sure we had all the essentials for day to day. The dock is cool! And the water was just right for a late afternoon swim. Definitely will be contacting Lyndsey to book for next year! I would recommend this location and give it 5 stars!

Great lakeside house that we didn't want to leave.

  • 5 of 5

Lindsey and Blake have an incredible house on Quitman Lake. The house has been remodeled and is very comfortable. The covered deck is the place to have your morning coffee and relax looking at the lake. The town of Quitman has everything you need and the local steakhouse "The Den" has delicious food and drinks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Paradise Cove Lake House and plan to come back when the weather warms up so we can utilize the lake. Thanks for your hospitality and champagne on our arrival!
