Why Marietza and Chris Benson chose Cedar Creek Lake

When looking for a place 20 years ago all it took was sitting in a chair facing the lake and I was hooked, this was my paradise. This was our home for 17 years. We decided to move closer to Dallas but did not want to part with the lake, so we decided to share it with others, who we hope will enjoy it as much as we have.

What makes this house unique

Early morning is one of my favorite times to sit on the covered deck with my cup of coffee and watch and listen to the water and wildlife while the sun comes up. Through out the day you can swim, go boating, fishing or just relax on the patio. Then in the evenings sitting on the dock you can take in the beautiful sunsets.

The Great Escape !!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this is the place to escape !! One of the best places we have ever stayed. The owners were so great and accommodating .The house was perfect !! There was no detail left out for 6 of us by the owners to just enjoy ourselves !! Great views of the lake !! We all loved it !!!!!!!

One huge problem though !! We should have stayed longer !! You do not want to leave !!

We are going back !!!!

Benson's Paradise....wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Benson's Paradise was a wonderful vacation home that easily accomodated the 6 of us. We enjoyed fishing on the dock and hanging out on the large back porch during the rain storms. Fully equipped kitchen that allowed us to cook all of our meals without having to leave. We rented a boat at the nearby Lone Star Marina and they were very easy to work with. We really enjoyed everything about this property and loved the "hominess" of this family home!

We very much enjoyed our stay at your lake house! The view was amazing and the house had everything we needed, we didn't have to leave all weekend. It was exactly the relaxing and beautiful vacation my girl friends and I had hoped for. The owners were very easy and helpful to work with and their home was very nice and clean with everything in it we needed to cook our own meals and relax both inside and outside. Their deck is amazing and was a great place to eat and watch the sunset! I would definitely recommend this location to everyone!
