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 is equipped with a propane fueled fire pit perfect for roasting hot dogs and smores. 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 Sam Rayburn Lake

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.

The house was comfortable and clean. We had everything we needed there to cook meals. We used the kayak, used the outside fire pit to make s'mores, watched movies, fished off the dock, and slept (16 very comfortable). There is a beach nearby to swim. We all enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend staying here highly.

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip at the A-Frame house. The house had everything we could have wanted. We had three teenage boys and a small boy with us and the cove was perfect for swimming and kayaking. There was very little boat traffic so it was safe for them to play in the water. We loved our trip.

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.
