Property description

***In 2014 we added a spectacular fire pit pictured above. Our spacious 230 square foot fire pit deck is round and measures 17 feet across providing ample room for multiple guests. The custom fire pit is one of the most unique fire pits you have ever seen. It's appearance looks just like a huge 'tree stump'. It is a 'real wood' burning fire pit, fire wood is included. The spectacular western sun that sets over the lake water has always been an attraction from our Porch, but now those sunsets can be seen from our new fire pit as well.

There are many special memories that friends and family can enjoy near our lake home as well. From visiting the many antique shops nearby or spending the day at Canton First Monday. We also have the Texas Freshwater Fisheries or or you can visit the beautiful East Texas Arboretum in Athens, which are only 15 minutes away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I grew up in Dallas and in the early 60's and now I currently live in Rockwall, Texas just east of Dallas. This property was in my family since before the lake had water in it back in 1961. In my early years and into my mid teens I grew up going to the lake on the weekends where I spent most of my summer when I wasn't in school. Through the summer I spent my time swimming, fishing and water skiing. Ahhhh and there is nothing better than getting close to nature and being on the lake! In my early adult years getting married, having children, working and growing a family, building a life of my own, I became caught up living "The City Life", so I quit going to the lake for a long period of time. Now years later when I began to return to Southern Comfort on Cedar Creek Lake, it was difficult at first to just to slow down, relax and get back into the "Lake and Country Living" mode. Once you arrive at Southern Comfort on Cedar Creek Lake, it doesn't take very long to get back into that way of life. Today you can easily hang all the stresses of work and fast paced city living on all the bridges coming here. There is nothing better than the peace, serenity and stress free life that the country and lake living have to offer, even if it's just for a weekend. By our sharing Southern Comfort, you too can enjoy the Leisure of Lake and Country Living here at Southern Comfort on Cedar Creek Lake!

Why the Owner Chose Malakoff, TX, USA:
Cedar Creek Lake was created in 1964 as a water reservoir for Tarrant County and is one of the very few lakes in Northeast Texas that allows property ownership of the waterfront with the ability to have your own private beach area, docks and boathouse. Cedar Creek Lake has also been recognized as one of the best places in the country to live for retirement. We are a privately owned property. Being a private lakefront property our beach is owned. We also allow the use of fireworks, unlike a homeowners addition or a homeowners association controlled property. In 2013, the entire exterior of the property has received a complete makeover undergoing both major and minor repairs, new paint, landscaping along with a unique "Tree Stump" fire pit. The pictures you see on all the websites, some were taken as recently as March 15th, 2015. In the pictures you can see one of our outside themes, there are many more. We decorate the house with porch flags year around for all of our guests staying at Southern Comfort at no extra charge. Spring, Summer, Fall, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Easter, Valentines, Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Years weeks and weekends. If you have some sort of 'special' occasion to celebrate such as a surprise birthday, anniversary or honeymoon and need personalized decorations, just specify and we can provide you with a quote.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Inclusive of all the remodeling this year we have decided to do a couple of other new things for our guests. First off we are offering to all our clients a $500 damage deposit waiver. When clients who book with us and return the property back to us in great shape will have there future deposit requirements waived on your next stay. Our goal, to attract a group of long term responsible clients that wish to share our lake home with us for many years to come. This offer can end at any time without notice. In addition our check in and out times.....well we threw them out. On the day of check in you can arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. and leave as late as 8:00 p.m. on the day of departure. That is like giving our clients an extra day at the lake for free. We want our guests to relax and enjoy family and friends, while experiencing the Southern Comfort way of vacationing. Our house is fully equipped with an abundance of kitchen and refrigerator spices and condiments. We supply coffee, tea and sugar for all of our guests. We also supply dish, hand and bath soaps throughout the house. We supply all the firewood you need for the upcoming cool evenings for both the fire pit and the wood burning fire place that is inside the house, you bring the romance.
