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.

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!

Our 3rd annual ladies trip, we absolutley love this place!! I have never met the owners John and Cathy but feel as though we are old friends, they are always timely in answering emails as well as deposit returns.The cabin is such as gem and the lake is amazing for putting a float in and drifting!! Love the front porch in the evenings and even late at night almost like being at the beach. Looking foward to our next ladies trip!! Thanks again Richmonds!!!!

Ladies Weekend of Rejuvenation

  • 5 of 5

One of my dearest girlfriend's and I needed some time away from the concrete jungle we both call home. This property looked ideal. We spent a couple of months reading reviews on properties in this area and this one captured us. The owners were quickly

responsive and we were excited. This did not prepare us for its perfection. We arrived and our breath was taken away by how peaceful and perfect it was. The pictures do not do it justice. The beach is right off the back deck. It's a beautiful lake with an even better lake cottage. We had a wonderful weekend away with lake time and fun playing the games they provided. The beds were comfortable like home, and the amenities were perfect for the menu we planned. We both plan to return in future with our husbands and kids. This is a place you wish you could bottle up and save. It is exactly what you're looking for, I promise. We both walked away rejuvenated and excited to come back.

Also, one of the restaurants they recommended is beyond wonderful! We went to Jerry's that is a short, but beautiful, drive away and fell in love with the food and the staff. Ask for Lynette! She was a riot and so much fun. She set the tone for a perfect day on the lake.

If you're torn on where to stay, this is the place. Thank you guys so many times over. You were wonderful and your property was just what we were looking for.

We loved it. The cabin is well appointed, has awesome views, and is very comfy. Weather was not great, but it did not matter. Listening to the waves lapping on the shoreline was very peaceful. Thanks to the generous front porch, we could even be outside during rain. Our stay was just what we needed.

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!
