Guests are free to roam the woods where wildlife and birds abound. Fishing is available in the lake. Lake is stocked with catfish, bass, and bluegill. Paddle boat may be used. It can be so relaxing to sit on the patios or get in the paddle boat on the lake and just listen to the county sounds. NO SWIMMING in 1 acre lake, Only Fishing,

About the owner: Jim & Jodi moved to 'Shady Springs' in 2001 from Dallas, TX. The land has been in the family since the mid 1800's. Jim's mother inherited her part in the mid 1950's and started carving out their little niche in the woods on weekends and holidays. Parents retired and built their home in 1970. Jim designed and built our log home 'Mi Mi's Tree House' on the land in 2001 to be near 90 year old mother. 2005 we redid parents home for guests and family. We live on the property and take care of everything.
Why the Owner Chose Gilmer, TX, USA:
Relax with the peace and quite surrounding you. Lots of fishing lakes close by.
