About Debbie

We have owned this property for over 15 years, and we have made wonderful memories at Cedar Creek Lake. We have 5 children and over 500 friends that have enjoyed this home.

Debbie purchased this house in 2001

Why Debbie chose Mabank

This home is located in a quiet neighborhood on a cul-de-sac. Kids can ride bikes, skate, play outside, and otherwise enjoy the outdoors here "in the country". Our home is situated on the lake at the end of a cove. Because "our water" is not in the main part of the lake, everyone may enjoy swimming off of our dock without worrying about lots of watercraft traffic.

What makes this house unique

The home is close to everything--grocery stores, emergency clinic, hospital (right in Gun Barrel City), Gun Barrel's version of Dave and Busters with go-carts and laser tag, movie theater, drug stores, Walmart, nail salons, pizza delivery, and whatever else you might need. So, when your teenagers want pizza at 10:00 PM or one of your guests enjoyed too much sun, it is nice to have 5-minute access to these businesses. In other neighborhoods on Cedar Creek Lake, you are much farther from grocery stores, etc... Starbucks located 5 minutes from the property.

Spring Break Stay

  • 5 of 5

Property turned out to be better than expected. We stayed for 3 nights and all of us enjoyed every moment of it. We were 7 adults and 7 kids and all of us had plenty of rooms. House was packed with everything we needed. Owner was responsive to emails and phone calls. House is perfect for small get together or if you want to get away from busy lifestyle.

Great family fun!

  • 5 of 5

Debbie's house is a great fit for family gatherings! Our group of 12 (6 adults, 2 teenagers and 4 boys under 10) had a great time. The house has 5 king beds and 3 full bathrooms. The large tree shown in the photo is no longer in the yard so lots of room to throw the football or play catch. She has an outdoor fire pit, also not shown, which was lots of fun for making smores. Highly recommend!

Amazing Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a few days at this property and were blown away. There were 10 adults in our party and this house had plenty of room, games, movies, and toys for the kids. The patio and fire pit were great as well, this property has it all and the home owner couldn't have been more accommodating. I will definitely stay here again.

Great house by the lake

The house is even better than described by the owner, Debbie. It really feels like being at home and wish we had more days to enjoy it.

The backyard house with its deck and as fantastic to enjoy the lake view and sunsets. Thank you Debbie!

In the words of grandpa Lloyd, "What a Swell place!"

  • 5 of 5

We came here to celebrate my husband's birthday and enjoy some much needed family time. And we did! From the beginning Mrs. Sanders, the owner set the tone of the house, family oriented and warm. When we walked in for the first time the view took our breath away, we all stood there for a moment and you could immediately feel the weight of our worlds melt away. Mrs. Sanders will tell you there is not much you have to bring because she has made sure that every detail of home is right there for you, from phone chargers to gadgets right down to everything your little ones might need. The walls are painted with all the beautiful portraits of the Sanders family making memories and we in turn joined them in making memories of own. We have enjoyed ourselves tremendously and we recommend this home to every family wanting to come together and make some fantastic memories, we will definitely return for another visit! Thanks again Sanders family for sharing your home and God bless you!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for coming to our home. I am so happy you had a great time. Thanks for leaving the house in such good shape. I am so happy grandpa thought the place was "swell." We have put a lot of time into making the house home to our guest. We really love it when people respect it. Thank you and hope to see you next year, maybe in September or October this year. Truly a great time to be there. Sincerely, Debbie

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 4 nights over spring break this year. I highly recommend this location and I would/will visit again. Outside of the wonderful view, close proximity to Dallas and size of the house there are so many small details that the owners do to make it a comfortable place to visit i.e. device power cords everywhere, a ton of serving dishes, games and a lot more. We felt completely at home and welcome. Thanks for letting us enjoy ourselves.
