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.

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.

Great weekend with the family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun time as a family at the lake house. So much to do! We have 4 kids from 2 years old up to 11 and this house kept them all entertained and away from electronics, enjoying beautiful nature :) even in the fall! The kids walked searching for all kind of "treasures" in the private beach, went kayaking and pedal boating! I was in the kayak with my 11 year old son when we saw an eagle dive and catch a fish right by our side! incredible! We had smokes for dessert at the fire pit every night and took our family game (crocket) which we were able to play all around the house. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. Small but cozy, and that was what we were looking for. Very quiet neighborhood. We went for lunch exploring restaurants over the lake but we wished we had stayed at the house because our view was much nicer from the deck of the house. The kids are already looking forward to come back again!!

Relaxing weekend with nothing to worry about.

Wonderful relaxing time. The place was great and had everything we needed. Having the fire pit setup and ready to go was an extra nice touch! Thanks for a great weekend!

Little slice of heaven ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful little slice of heaven!! Beautiful little cabin with everything you need although we spent most of our time in the water, on the beach looking for beautiful shells or on the fantastic, amazing and relaxing covered porch. Beds were so very comfortable and I love the two full bathrooms - one upstairs and one downstairs. Could not ask for any better and the owners via email are very kind and respond very quickly. This was a birthday weekend celebration and our second time here and certainly NOT our last!!

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!
