About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 18 in beds)

This beautiful A Frame is nestled right in the middle of the Angelina National Forest on a secluded peninsula and right on gorgeous Lake Sam Rayburn. This spacious retreat sits on over an acre on a protected cove where you can fish and ski all day long. Since we are in the middle of the National Forest, you are steps away from hunting. Enjoy miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking and bird watching. Challenge your kids to a game of horse shoes, washers, badminton, or volleyball and then cool off in the lake.

The house has 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms and sleeps 18 in beds! It is fully equipped with Satellite TV, satellite internet and DVD player, dishes, kitchenware, charcoal grill, two refrigerator freezer combos, a washer and dryer. Inside dining seats 6 at the table and another 6 at the bar with seating for 16 outside on the deck. Bathrooms are stocked with plenty of towels, wash cloths, and hair dryers. All three downstairs bedrooms have queen size beds. The loft bedroom has a king bed and is upstairs. The bunk room is upstairs and has one queen, one full and six twin beds. All beds have very comfortable mattresses and high quality bedding and the full, queens and king beds all have super pillow top mattresses. They are so comfortable you won't want to get out of bed!!

The property has over 300' of shoreline. A two man kayak/canoe is available with life vests. A large deck overlooks the water and has two large picnic tables and seating. If you're looking for the nicest place on the lake, this is it!

About Ferryn and Steve

We are retired teachers who live in the A Frame during the winter and at our next door cabin during rental season. We love to watch the sunsets, water ski, spot bald eagles and relax on the lake during the summer.

Ferryn and Steve purchased this house in 2010

Why Ferryn and Steve chose Broaddus

We bought this property in 2010 and planned to rent it until we retired. However, we are now retired and even though this will be our permanent address, we are going to continue renting because it has been such a positive experience. Our family owns the small cabin next door which enables us to enjoy the lake while renting the A Frame.

What makes this house unique

We use to think that the distance from Houston was too far (takes 2 1/2 to 3 hrs) but after spending time at some lakes close to Houston with the crowds, we think our lake is the best in Texas.

Games such as horse shoes, washers, badminton, ladders are available. Also kayak, canoe, life jackets, and floats available. We also have two mountain bikes that you can use to ride through the dirt roads or forest trails. There is a chef in the neighborhood that can help with some or all of the cooking. We can put you in touch if you don't want to do your own cooking.

Enjoyed our trip!

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Ferryn were great folks and have a nice place. We had 10 grown men staying with plenty of room. We also had five boats and trucks, along with 4 other cars, and there was parking room for all of that too. The dock was a little tight for 5 boats but workable in fairly calm weather to run extension cord and charge batteries at night. Kitchen was well set up for cooking. And the fish cleaning station got a workout. Lots of fun ! Whenever we come back to Rayburn, we will check to see if this site is still available at that time.

Quaint, relaxing, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends had a wonderful stay at the A-Frame Cabin. It was spacious, had everything we needed, and was super comfortable (the beds were great!).

The water view from the deck was great. Kayaking was peaceful (we saw an eagle!). It was everything we needed for a getaway from the daily stress.

The owners were easy to deal with, very flexible to work with and take great care of their property.

We can't wait to come back for another getaway, would recommend this property to anyone.

Fantastic Again!

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to stay here. We love it and will keep coming back. If you need some help cooking, tell the owners to contact Cindy the Chef. Cindy prepared three delicious meals for us. This made our stay even better. Thanks Cindy!

Great spot for a reunion with old buddies! Plenty of room, comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen and a big deck in a piney woods setting. Owners are very nice folks too.

This really is in the middle of the Angelina National Forest. The nearest town is Broaddus which is 15 minutes away, 6 of those miles down dirt roads.
