Property description

Read our 5 star reviews. La Vida Loca Cottage offers a relaxing get-a-way and lake front enjoyment. The innovation design of the house is perfect for leisure living as well as providing an elegant venue for entertaining and family fun. Even when the lake is low, we are on open water, which means there is always water in front of the house. If the lake is down there is just more beach area.

There are 2 public boat ramps near by and boat rentals available. Ask for more information and we will provide you with and information sheet on Cedar Creek Lake area activities.

The southern exposure on open water, and wrap around covered deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the predominantly southern breeze. A fresh cup of coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the lake is a must. The cottage offers a large living area with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, expansive use of glass, a spacious well-appointed kitchen, and large informal dining bar. Outside the approximately 800 square feet of decking creates the perfect outdoor environment where you and lucky guests will enjoy east facing open water views and unlimited entertainment possibilities. In addition, there is a private boathouse with large sun deck.

The interior of the house has been repainted for 2015. We have also added a firepit and more games.

For 2015 we are adding 2 Kayaks that will be available for our guests use. The cost will be an additional $50 for the term of the house rental.

The house is in a clean well maintained neighborhood that is free of mobile homes.

PARTIES FOR PROMS, GRADUATION ETC.. ARE NOT ALLOWED.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are semi retired and live full-time at Cedar Creek Lake. We chose the lake because of the beauty of the lake, our friends and the great people we have met here.

Why the Owner Chose Mabank, TX, USA:
We named this house 'La Vida Loca' (The crazy life) because there is so much to do. No mater what time of year there are many activities to enjoy around Cedar Creek Lake. What we like most though is sitting and enjoying nature from the porch. There is a great deal of wildlife around the lake-- birds, fish and animals. The lake is a stopping off point for many birds as they migrate for the different seasons. The porch faces Southeast so it is shaded in the afternoon. In the summer there is usually a nice breeze. The sunrises in the mornings can be spectacular.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are two large swings on the back porch, and a sitting area on the dock. The water is good for swimming.
