About Pam Falls No calls after 7p.m. please

I've always had fond memories of Millwood Lake. Summertime meant time to spend with my Grandparents who lived at Millwood Lake. My Grandfather was an avid fisherman and hunter and a great teacher. I also have a love for hunting and fishing!

Pam Falls No calls after 7p.m. please purchased this house in 2013

Why Pam Falls No calls after 7p.m. please chose Ashdown

After moving away from the Texarkana area to serve in the Air Force, I missed the whispering pines and the Cypress trees. In early 2000, I went to the Bullfrog Marina Restaurant, a floating building at Jack's Isle. I always admired the A frame house directly in front of the ramp. How excited I was to see that 'for sale' sign! I was told this was the first home built at Jack's Isle back in the early '70s. It has taken many hours to remodel and update this house. I hope you, too will enjoy the lake view! Take a walk down to the boat ramp and you usually can catch a glimpse of a gator or two. Sit back and enjoy the meditation area by the koi pond or watch the anxious fisherman hurrying to get that boat in the water in hopes of the 'big one'!

What makes this house unique

The living room is a tall vaulted ceiling with a loft bedroom over the downstairs bedrooms/bath and kitchen. A climate controlled sunroom overlooks the lake. The hot tub is secluded from public view.

A screened in porch on the side of the home can be used as a bug free coffee/smoking area. A large deck outside for entertaining and/or enjoying the lake view. To stay with the nature of this lovely lake, the home is decorated in a fishing/duck hunting theme.

If you're just wanting to get away and slow down you won't find a better area or property!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lilly Pad on Millwood Lake! The property is perfect for a relaxing time away from it all and the A-frame makes you feel right at home. We really loved the fact that the owners allow pets and we were able to bring our "kids" along. They enjoyed the yard, decks, sun room and even the koi pond out back (our puppy Charlie loves water and thought it would make a good swimming hole until he realized how deep it was). I read a review about the hot tub not being "warmed up" for arrival so the first thing I did was turn the heat up on it. After a run into Ashdown for groceries, some fishing at the dock and getting dinner taken care of it was up to 95 and felt wonderful! By the next morning it was 102 and perfect for a short dip before hitting the lake again. The cabin had everything we needed and was a very enjoyable home away from home. Be aware that if you go during duck season you will hear shotguns starting at sunrise. We are up and going early so it didn't bother us. Fishing on Millwood is unbelievable. We fished the dock the first night and morning then dropped the kayaks in after that (yes there are gators...leave them alone and they'll do the same for you). We caught 50+ black bass, most over 2 lbs, and had a blast negotiating the stumps and little river. Even the dock fishing was good! The area is really quiet, beautiful and everyone we ran into was very friendly. Can't wait to come back again!!

Very quiet retreat.

  • 5 of 5

My wife went here for our 11 year wedding anniversary. It was everything we were looking for in this type of setting. The lake was nice, and the place was very quiet. In fact so quiet, we did not hear any human noises the whole weekend. Listening to the frogs and cicadas at night were awesome. The weather was just a bit on the hot side to go out for very long during the day time, but otherwise it was perfect for us. We will definitely return here again.

Amazing Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time on our trip, this house is beautiful! Hot tub was really cool once we figured out how to get the cover off :p however, it did take about a day to get the temperature up from 84*

House was kid friendly and we got to bring our fur baby

Love how close it was to the boat ramp and dock, we watched people fish and went down to the dock to fish, ourselves (though we didn't catch anything)

Everything that was provided in the house kind of amazed me. Anything you need to cook is there, and the grill was awesome!

Pam was also very nice over the phone. We met her husband when he came to mow the yard and fix a table :)

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!
