About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-15)

Winter rates are now available. Nov. 1st thru Feb. 28th.....Save $75 per night. Hurry and make your reservation now! (Excluding Holidays)

Updates - We now have a new gas AND charcoal grill, corn-hole, horseshoes, and a well lit pathway to the boat house with tree-lights....no more solar lighting!!! Also, NEW pots & pans, and a new reclining couch and a matching rocker/recliner!!!

Whether you're looking to catch the big one or just catch some ZZZ's, this is the place for you. Welcome bass tournament fisherman, nature lovers, and families!
Peaceful and spacious log cabin nestled in quiet No Name cove (that is the actual name of the cove) located in Ray Branch on the hottest bass fishing lake in Texas! Country living with all of the luxuries of your own home.

This peaceful 4 bedroom/2 bath rustic home is not only located minutes from several towns (perfect for antique shopping), it also has a private air conditioned boathouse (with a poker table, microwave, and mini fridge), boat ramp, and fish cleaning station located right on the 3 acre property...just a short walk down the paved walkway from the house, which now is lit up with tree lighting!!!!! Colorado ash interior, floor to ceiling custom stone fireplace, hardwood floors, and an open floor plan with incredible lake views make this house THE hottest around!


Sit in a rocking chair under the covered porch, cook out on the outdoor patio with the gas or charcoal grill, or roast marshmallows in the outdoor stone fireplace. There is an ample amount of room on the property to play catch or get a football game going. We now also have horseshoes and corn-hole available...you will find these in the master bedroom closet. It is a great place for a family get together with plenty of outdoor space to have craw fish boil or fish fry! For those of you that don't have a boat, cast fishing is available right off the dock. The sunsets on the lake are spectacular and the stars at night truly ARE big and bright on this coveted, stunning lake front property!

Want to stay inside? Play games, enjoy free Wi-Fi, watch cable on DirecTV, or enjoy a movie. Family bonding time has never been better!

Sleeping Accommodations:

Master Bedroom #1 - Downstairs: King ranch-style bed (linens provided) and plush memory foam mattress. Multiple windows with stunning lake view.

Master Bedroom #2 - Upstairs: Queen size bed with equestrian themed bedding as well as a futon with a comfortable, thick mattress. French doors lead to a balcony with an incredible view of lake. Plenty of extra room available for multiple air mattresses (provided) for additional sleeping arrangements.

Bedroom #3 - Upstairs: Americana themed, Mahogany twin daybed with trundle. French doors lead to balcony with lake view.

*Note: Bedroom #3 and #4 are adjoining bedrooms so you must pass through bedroom #4 to get to #3 (Jack and Jill style)

Bedroom #4 - Upstairs: Antique twin sleigh bed with vanity and shabby chic decor

Living Room - Comfortable sofa, loves seat & plush recliner (a favorite of many)

**Also have several air mattresses available with electric air pump for additional guests**

Bathroom Accommodations:

Bathroom #1 - Large master bath with slate walk in shower, jetted tub, and his and her sinks.

Bathroom #2 - Large jack and Jill with walk in shower

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to prepare meals for your family and friends, and we have just updated all of the pots and pans!!! However, if cooking is not your thing, you can visit one of the several local restaurants for some good home cookin'. Every direction leads you to one of the small outlying towns such as Quitman, Mineola, Emory, Golden, and Yantis. Each town has various festivals, fairs, and other festivities throughout the year. We are approximately 25 miles from Canton, TX, home of the world famous 1st Monday Trade Days. The boys can fish while the girls shop til you drop!

**Please note, we cannot reimburse any rental monies due to low lake levels. There is a public ramp close to the property (should the lake be too low to launch from our property), and boats can be tied to the dock once the boat is in the water.

Book it fast before it fills up! When you catch the 'big one' make sure you send us a picture. You might even end up on our Fish Tales wall of fame!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are newlyweds with six wonderful children, a beautiful grandbaby, and a very needy Jack Russell named Rudy. Our lives have been greatly blessed and when we're not watching Aggie (Whoop!) or Cowboys football, we're out riding our motorcycle Lucy (yes, my husband named his motorcycle. ha).

Why the Owner Chose Alba, TX, USA:
After looking at many lakes and properties, it was love at first sight when I saw this Lake Fork home. Not only is it a short drive from Dallas, but it is also happens to be on the best bass fishing lake in Texas. Although the home was amazing when we bought it, we completely remodeled it to have all of the creature comforts of home. It is a great place to go to rewind and relax.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home has a private air-conditioned boathouse with a boat ramp and fish cleaning station. The boat house has a poker table, microwave, and mini fridge...the perfect makings of a man cave!. If you have fished one of the many tournaments at Lake Fork, you will know that sometimes you can spend hours waiting your turn on the public boat ramp. The home is the perfect getaway for fisherman, hunters, and families. Canton is also close by so the women can get away and shop while the men fish.
