About John & Cathy Richmond

We are John and Cathy Richmond, and we're happy you are considering a stay at our cabin. We spent the past several years completely rebuilding the interior to make it a cozy and enjoyable retreat. We love spending time there, but are pleased to be able to share it with others.

John & Cathy Richmond purchased this cabin in 2010

Why John & Cathy Richmond chose Lake Livingston

We fell in love with this place when we first saw it, mostly because of the beach and beautiful lake view. After several years of careful remodeling we have decided to share its charm with others. One great thing about it is that is is only 90 minutes from Houston and only about an hour from the airport!

What makes this cabin unique

We looked at many properties before buying this one and what sold us was the unusual feature of the sandy beach and quiet area. While there are neighbors around the property it still feels very private. Also, the proximity to restaurants and shops makes staying here very convenient.

What an amazing getaway! We absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house has everything you need for a quiet, serene getaway! The only complaint we have is that the weekend ended too soon! The house is perfect, the beach right in the back yard is incredible and the views are breathtaking. We brought our 4 year old granddaughter and she loved it as much as we did. We will absolutely be back and are already looking forward to it! If you're looking for a tranquil place to get away from the daily grind...look no further!

Perfect place for a peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your cottage! It was very clean, had everything we needed..including little touches like dish soap, hand soap, trash bags, and fly swatter - this is the first VRBO we have stayed in that had those things available! Beds were comfortable and we all slept great. We even appreciated the variety of pillow types available (firm, down feather, etc.) as we all have our different preferences, ha! The deck/porch is excellent and spacious. We loved the shallow beach just steps from the back door!! Our kids enjoyed the beach area immensely and we made use of the comfortable beach chairs you had for us, as well as the fun little boats. For those with babies wondering... A standard size 'pack and play' crib fit in the laundry room with room to spare. The laundry room has a separate door and an a/c vent, so it is perfectly suitable for a sleeping place if your baby needs his own spot to rest. We brought a sound machine and after wearing himself out on the beach, my little one slept great! Also the owners are very timely and responsive to questions, so reach out to them if you have any. We definitely enjoyed this little spot and plan to return. Thank you for your hospitality!! :)

Great getaway close to Houston

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful place this is! The little cabin is decorated beautifully and very comfortable! All we needed was provided. The best part was the beach with the wind and waves! We truly felt like we were at the beach! We had a beautiful moon rise to enjoy and we never felt hot . The kayaks were fun to take out too. We will be back!!

Such an adorable little cabin with everything you could need inside. The real treat was the beach

  • 5 of 5

and water just steps from the door. We really enjoyed our time here. Perfect for little ones as the water is pretty shallow (3 feet deep or less) for at least 200 ft. And the lake bottom is soft sand ..not rock or mud like many Texas lakes. We brought water shoes but, after going in once we never put them back on. The kayaks (One one person and one two person) and paddle boat that were available for use really just set this cabin over the top. We enjoyed being able to get out on the water as a family. I cannot say enough good things about this property. Thanks for sharing it with us!
