Gary & Jeanene Jensen are happy to offer this property for you to enjoy your vacation. We have been in the Information Technology business for many years, and have recently started our own IT consulting business. So, with all the travel we do for work, we have purchased our ideal lakefront property that we hope to enjoy fully in our retirement years. We live nearby, our daughter goes to a local school, and Jeanene's family and friends are all in this same general area. Jeanene is a native Texan, while Gary is Canadian born and moved from Canada in 1999 - he really moved to escape those nasty Canadian winters in Edmonton, AB, but didn't realize at the time that he was going from the freezer to the frying pan! The Houston weather took a little getting used to.
Jeanene purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Jeanene chose Coldspring
We spent many months selecting what we thought was the perfect property for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We wanted a property that would offer the best lake views, lots of room to do outdoor activities, fish off the bulkhead, participate in lots of water sports, and enjoy nature in a quiet acreage setting. We believe this is indeed the perfect vacation spot!
What makes this Cabin unique
The sunrise and lake views are spectacular. You can sit in the Hot Tub and watch the birds fly over the lake. You can fish right off the bulkhead. You can have a morning coffee on the covered patio with lake view, listen to the wind blow through the many large trees on the property. It is peaceful, relaxing, fun and just an enjoyable spot in every way.

Nice cabin and great views
The cabin is very nice, clean and well furnished. The lake view and the back porch are fantastic. The kitchen has everything you need, and outside are the propane and charcoal grills. Just a beautiful property.
The property is amazing with all of the amenities.
The owners provided everything to make the property very user friendly. The fishing is awesome right off the bulkhead, and there's a nice lot next door to launch your kayak. There is plenty of comfortable furniture in and outside the house where the whole family can visit. There's great access to Wolf creek Park, Indian Creek, and the old 190 boat launch. Don't pass on this property if you're looking to stay on Lake Livingston.
Good value for the price.
This house is very nice for the price. It is lake front. The beach shown in some of the pictures is actually to the right of the property and it does have a sandy shore.
The pier shown in the pictures does not belong to this property, but rather to the neighbors on the left. I did not ask to use their pier and we did not do any fishing.
The water is VERY shallow. I would say 1-3 feet. This extends out about 75 yards from the bulkhead. I do not believe that you can get any boat to this property. Yes for a wave runner, but it would be tricky.
We bought rafts and just floated. It was just fine.
All in all, I have no complaints about this rental.
I found the entire house and lot to be very peaceful and quiet.
I grew up on a lake, Lake LBJ and Lake Travis. One thing that I saw at this lake from this property, but not from the other lakes, was the biggest team of ducks I have ever seen, about 750-1000 large. They appeared to be "walking on water". INCREDIBILE!!
The back of the house faces due EAST so no view of a sunset, but one of the sunrises was beautiful. I actually only saw one, but still beautiful...
It was Saint Patrick's day when I was there and we had an unforeseen fireworks show. This show was professionally done and amazing...What a nice surprise!!
So just to answer some questions that you may have:
No snakes, bugs were minimal and everything works at the property.
Thanks for a great break!!
Beautiful views with a spectacular sunrise.
We took our two boys to the cabin on the lake for a few days over spring break. This is a very comfortable and clean place to stay with beautiful views of the lake. We spent almost the entire time outside fishing and playing various sports in the big back yard. The kitchen had everything I needed and the sunrise was out of this world!
Quiet and Relaxing. Private setting.
Owner thought of all the bells and whistles. Everything that you would forget to pack was available. Property was well kept and extremely clean. Felt like home away from home. Get getaway.
Very quiet and relaxing property.
In general we enjoyed the quiet and peaceful location of the property. We had a few mishaps but nothing major like: the cold water did not function on the washer; when we opened the windows there was a lot of dead bugs and dirt on the window frames; the frying pans were hard to use because everything stuck to the bottom; the cushions for the outside chairs were dirty and overused; there is no fence in the right side of the property; the lake pier pictured in the presentation is that of the neighbor's property: looks like it was a pier on this property but it was removed;
The property in general was clean, the bedrooms, the towels and the sheets; we were able to make fires every evening and there is a very nice view of the sunrise over the lake;
The property managers were readily available to help when we needed. We recommend this property.
We are on the western shores of Lake Livingston within the Sam Houston National Forest in Texas hill country 74 miles North & East of downtown Houston, 60 miles from IAH (George Bush Intercontinental Airport). We are 1 mile from Wolf Creek Park that offers a public boat launch, 3 miles from the prestigious Cape Royale Golf Club and only 10 miles from the quaint town of Coldpsring TX that offers local restaurant fare, antique shopping and trade days where local vendors offer their wares in a flea market type setting. If you need a full service marina, Browders Marina is only 17 miles away.
The Cabin is located just off of a curving, hilly road (FM 224) that is a scenic favorite for cycling enthusiasts. The rolling hills, trees and lush greenery make for a very pleasant bike ride or sight seeing drive.
A larger Urban center, the town of Lake Livingston, is just 30 miles away. Here you will find everything you need for an evening of dining out, shopping, or just getting the essentials from the local Walmart store.
If you are a history buff, San Jacinto County (named for the 1836 battle that ended the Texas revolution against Mexico), has numerous interesting sites nearby: Coldspring which is the county seat has an interesting history of two distinct towns (Old Town - built in the Gullies) and the new part built on the hill. The area is dotted with Historical markers and historic buildings like the Old Town first jail still stands today. Coldspring United Methodist Church is believed to be the oldest Methodist church in continuous use in Texas. Another church, Evergreen United Methodist, was organized in 1862, several years before the county was formed.
The Trapp-McClanahan house, built around 1880, is privately owned and Council Hill, also located on private property, was the home of Vernal B. Lea, brother of Mrs. Sam Houston.
On U.S. Highway 190 is Oakhurst, which was once a prosperous sawmill town named for Oakhurst, Okla., home of several lumber men who moved to Texas.
Three miles north of Oakhurst is Raven Hill, the one-time home of Sam Houston, the hero of San Jacinto. The hill got its name from an Indian name for Houston. Further up U.S. 190 from Oakhurst is Point Plank, which was originally named Point Blanc by a Frenchwoman who moved here from Alabama. The town was also called Point White and White Point.
About a mile south of Point Blank is Robinson Cemetery, where a large monument marks the grave of Gov. George Tyler Wood, who served from 1849 to 1851. Wood's grave was unmarked for more than a half-century until the monument was built.
