About the property

1 bedroom with great view of the lake with dock , 1 bath, sleeps 4

This quaint, fully-furnished lakefront cottage is perfect for family vacations, guy's fishing retreats, girl's getaways, a couple of couples or a romantic getaway with your honey. Overlooking one of the clearest, spring-fed lakes in Texas (the same aquifer that Ozarka and Nestle gets their spring water feeds Lake Hawkins), this 1-bedroom, 1 bath has everything you need to get outta town and forget about the 'real world' for a while. The bedroom, with a Queen-size bed and the Queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area can accomodate a small family or 2 couples. Watch the sun rise over the lake from the deck as you're enjoying your morning coffee. Enjoy our screened-in cabana, private boat dock for securing your boat, fishing, swimming and sun-bathing and lots of room to play, walk, run, cycle, motorcycle or just chill. A public beach at Lake Hawkins County Park is down the road, just a few minutes away. You’ll want “our place” to be your “your place” for your next intimate getaway. Ask about our pontoon boat rental for a complete lake experience!

We're 100 miles east of Dallas, 100 west of Shreveport and within minutes of Mineola, Gladewater and Jefferson with scores of antique shops, lakes, wineries and some of the best fishing, boating and motorcycle riding in the country! Lake Fork, Lake of the Pines, Lake Palestine, Lake Holbrook, Lake Winnsoro, Lake Gilmer, Lake Quitman are just minutes away. So spend a weekend on beautiful Lake Hawkins or spend a week and fish them all!

About Allen/Rhonda Sanders

Allen and Rhonda are semi-retired and live nearby within the community. Rhonda is artsy and creative. Allen loves to fish and ride his Harley. Both are very involved and active their local church and both love to make music and enjoy serving people.

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Allen/Rhonda Sanders chose East Texas

We have lived on Lake Hawkins for over 10 years in a fabulous log home and my neighbor decided to sell her little weekend place. So with a little TLC and my wife's creativity, we fashioned this great little cottage into something that looks like it belongs on a Montana river or off the coast of Maine. Its pitched ceiling, exposed beams and a tastefully-decorated fishing motif, just feels like you're miles from everything.

Great stay at a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Two of my sisters and I stayed at this comfortable cabin out on Lake Hawkins. The Sanders were very hospitable in making sure they were ready for our arrival and we were fortunate to be able to introduce ourselves to Allen shortly after. The private dock for our use was excellent and the serenity of Lake Hawkins and the surrounding area was just what we needed for some family bonding time. We hope we'll be back again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Amy - sure enjoyed having you and your sisters out for a little detox. Now that you know where we are, we're expecting y'all back - ha. You're only a guest once - after that, you're family. Until next time...

Wonderful and Tranquil Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little cottage will make you want to stay longer. The lake is awesome and the water is warm. I must say that Allen was down right the best host a person could hope for. He must love what he does and that place because he exudes jubilation. We rented their pontoon boat for a very reasonable price and had a blast. Our dogs enjoyed it too. There are fire pits outside and at night we roasted smores and sausages and told scary stories. VERY animal friendly, which is a bonus, however a good bit of information for those bringing your pups, they are not allowed down on the public beach park where they maintain the lake. Nothing to do with Allen and Rhonda because it is a public park, but just good information to know! There are many other places your pups can go so no worries. In the town, there is a grocery store that is fairly decent in size and has all you will need. Bring citronella candles and some serious mosquito repellent... otherwise you will not be able to enjoy how clear and beautiful the night sky is and gaze at all the stars! We will definitely be going back.

Fantastic accommodations! Great Owners! Your own lakefront park setting!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to tell everyone how great this place is, because I want to be able to go back..... with my whole family. This place would be booked solid if too many people knew about it. Outdoor living space is the best. Lake front with outside fire pits, screened porches, docks, and all the toys to take advantage of it. Just awesome! (but don't tell anyone...)

Very well maintained and very conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed every minute of our stay here. The cabin was spotless, cozy and had everything we could've needed for our three day stay. Mr. Sanders responded to my emails/messages almost immediately every time and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend Lakeview Cottage and we look forward to staying here again in the future.
