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 Point Blank
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.

Perfect weekend getaway- so quiet and peaceful. Nothing like waves on the beach and birds singing to get your batteries recharged. Cottage was just adorable- so comfortable, and with great amenities inside and out. So well decorated, too! Hosts were great, neighbors were friendly- just can't say enough! HIGHLY recommended.
Extremely well-kept property--both inside and out.
Thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
Cute little quiet cottage
This cottage is so cute! We were surprised at how quiet the area was, we had no problems with noise, or loud neighbors. The kitchen was well stocked with everything one would need to cook inside, or on the grill. The beds were extremely comfortable, which is sometimes hard to find in a rental. We loved the swing and had a relaxing time. The only negative I would say is that there really isn't a beach area like advertised. The whole area was covered with debris/garbage. I know a storm came through earlier in the week, but there were so many large tree branches/trunks that made it impossible to even walk out to the water. It was obvious that it hadn't been cleaned up for a long time. Also, there was a huge dead fish and turtle, and by our second day, you smelled it immediately after walking outside. Despite that, it was a relaxing time which is what we wanted.
So sorry to hear. We make every effort to keep the beach clean and ready to enjoy. Like any beach, there is little that done be done to prevent things from washing ashore. Whenever there is a large storm event upriver from us lots of debris flows into the lake and some of it inevitably ends up on the beach. As a rule, if we have time before a guest arrives we contact them to advise them of the conditions and give them options including a discount, or rescheduling or even cancelling their stay. I do not see any email between us but it’s possible we spoke by phone. But if we did not talk to you before hand we can still talk about repaying part of your rental fees. Ultimately, we want everyone to have the best experience possible.
The mini beach and sunrises make the stay! The house is well thought out and set up. The owners are quick to communicate and overly accommodating. I would love to come back and recommend to others.
This is our 3rd stay at this cabin and it has been perfect every time.
Everything was perfect! We felt right at home from the moment my husband and I arrived. The cottage was immaculately clean and very accommodating with everything we needed. The neighbors were friendly and tolds us not to hesitate to call them should we need anything. Thank you for taking the time and care to prepar the cottage for us and making us feel welcome. My husband and I had a beautiful time away from the everyday rush routine we have in the city. We fished, had fun on the paddle boat, bbqed, and enjoyed some of our favorite music and also enjoyed listening to the sound of the water. We definitely want to come back! Thank you.
