About the Property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Point Blank, TX, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
