About the Property
Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
If you are seeking a 5 star Hilton resort full of tourist sites to see and wear you down, well, our place is the opposite as we offer peace, quiet, nature and relaxation. No white table cloth restaurants but we have two grills and a great catfish house just down the road.
Our special place is nestled among tall pine, maple and hickory trees in a quaint, private setting…the perfect retreat to relax and unwind away from the frantic pace of city life, while getting reacquainted with nature. From fishing, water skiing, sunbathing, swimming, hiking, nature walks, biking and more – it’s right outside the window of our cozy home. Perfect for your family, friends or that special someone to create memories in an extraordinary environment. Great for quilt and scrap booking retreats… and don’t forget our fishing tournaments.
You will want to rise-n-shine early in the morning to enjoy your coffee on the back porch or deck while enjoying the 210 degree view of the lake. Grab your paper or fishing pole and head down to our private dock to relax in the rocking chairs to witness the sunrise as the lake comes to life. Lake Bob Sandlin is approximate 10,000 acres with a 120 mile shoreline known for its trophy fishing and an abundance of ducks, coots, heron and other birds. During the winter months, we have witnessed two bald eagles in our back yard. Let’s not forget the raccoons, squirrels and deer! If fishing is not your forte, then swing lazily in our lakeside hammocks reading your favorite book while enjoying spectacular views of the lake. Plenty of antique shops and places to eat in nearby Mount Vernon, Mount Pleasant and Pittsburg…just minutes away.
Our two story log home has a vaulted ceiling with a stone fireplace…and stands tall on its authentic style stone foundation with impressive views of the lake. Featuring 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, our 1500SF cabin is complimented by 1000SF of decks and porches as well as a 1200SF boathouse. Our woodsy cabin features custom stained glass, vintage art and handcrafted log furniture. The sun gleams through the stained glass windows adding color, light and coziness of our home. The dining area is open to the fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster and blender with the washer and dryer located in the utility room. The large breakfast counter/food prep area is highlighted by mosaic depiction of the Texas Flag while discretely tucking away a complete entertainment center that includes TV, Dish Satellite, DVD and Video Game System … with a limited library of music, movies and games. Each bedroom features a small TV/VCR. Our video tape library is extensive as well as board games…just in case it rains. Yes, we now offer FREE Wi-Fi just in case you need to contact the outside world...however the internet bandwidth is not suitable for video and game streaming. By the way, the perfect place for rain is on the back porch as the rain hits the tin roof.
Each of the 3 bedrooms is furnished with comfortable queen size beds. The downstairs master bedroom offers a TV/DVD/VCR combo, antique furnishing and a wonderful view of the lake…a perfect view to wake up to. The two bedrooms upstairs also offer TV/VCR units, one with lake view and the other with a view of the tree tops. Our property is perfect for a couple, family or a friends weekend away and sleeps 6 comfortably (3 queen beds). While we allow 8 guests max, 2 will have to bunk in front of the TV on the couch or in sleeping bags.
Ready for romance? For the adults, we have a hot tub on the rear deck…perfect for night time use while stargazing. During the winter months, you can nestle by the fireplace or make s’mores in the chimeniea on the deck.
Enjoy dazzling sunsets, great fishing, and the serenity of the outdoors. Bring your boat or jet ski (rentals nearby) to explore the lake. Sunbathe, swim or float the day away.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
When my travel companions and I arrived at the cabin on the lake, we were amazed by its natural beauty. Our first moments were spent walking out to the pier and enjoying a drink on the deck, watching the moon play on the calm lake waters, enjoying the stars and sounds of nature.
The bedrooms were comfortable and inviting. The heavy quilts were perfect to keep us warm on the cool nights. We fell into a peaceful sleep to the sounds of nature. We awoke early to watch the sunrise over the lake and even spotted some turtles swimming in the water. The comfy beds did allow us to sleep in a number of mornings, but the first one was special and we wanted to get started on enjoying our amazing property.
Late in the fall for East Texas, the trees were changing color still and beautifully stood out against the lake. We enjoyed watching the birds from the house decks and the hot tub. Late at night, we even spotted a raccoon! It was a treat to see so many animals we don’t typically find in the city.
On the few rainy days we kept ourselves entertained with the board game collection and watching old movies on the couch.
The cabin is very well kept and treasured. We found special touches throughout the cabin, small touches which made it truly feel like a home away from home.
