About the property

This two story cabin is situated on 3 grassy lots just feet from a sandy beach in a quiet neighborhood. The lake is shallow off of the beach and is perfect for children to play in. The cabin upstairs is an open plan with 2 queen beds, a bath, and a sitting area with 46" HDTV and surround system. It opens onto a balcony overlooking the beach and lake. Downstairs has a complete, new kitchen, laundry with washer & dryer, full bath, and a living area with another 46" HDTV w/DirecTV. Sitting area includes queen sofabed.

Outside there is a covered porch and a large deck that is shaded most of the day, a hammock, gas grill, and large, fenced yard. Also, there are 2 kayaks and a pedal boat for guest use.

While the kitchen is great for cooking, there are also a number of restaurants within a short drive. There is a large grocery store 5 minutes away. Property is located between Hunstville and Livingston, both noted for numerous antique shops.

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.

Great property. Peaceful view of the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place. It has a cozy feel and the property was open out back and the private beach area by the water was awesome!

Great place for kids!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! We had friends come up for the day and our 3 boys, 9, 10 and 12, had a blast in the water. The kayaks and paddle boats were fun for them. There are very few, if any others at all, on the lake with a private beach. What a gem! The water is shallow very far out so their water playground was huge! We'll definitely be back. Kitchen was well stocked, although some of the coffee accessories need to refreshed (creamer was hard), but otherwise no issues. The hosts were very responsive, and the neighbors who apparently take care of the place were so friendly!
