About Debra Johnson

We are in our 50's and love coming out to the lake to relax and unwind.

Debra Johnson purchased this house in 2010

Why Debra Johnson chose Cedar Creek Lake

We bought this house in 2010, we rebuilt and redesigned the whole house from the wood ceilings to the wood floors. Glen took special pride in the bar and craftsmanship that he put into the house.

Early Christmas get together

  • 5 of 5

Our family's meet at the lake since some were coming from Houston and the others from Dallas. We loved the big yard, the different sitting areas, the bar area downstairs and the big kitchen upstairs. The niebors were very nice. We will definitely come back next year

Family Thanksgiving

  • 3 of 5

If you are renting this property, you should be aware of the neighborhood which consists of older trailer homes. I believe that is why there are no pictures of the surroundings. The owner did meet us and spent a period of time walking us through the home. There was adequate space for our family of 8 adults and 3 children. While the some of the bedrooms were small, the gathering room overlooking the lake was great. The downstairs bathroom had a leaky toilet but we dealt with that issue. The pots and pans were in desperate need of being replaced. Many personal items were found in drawers - from clothes to medications to personal hygiene items which we have never seen in other VRBO rentals. The owner complained that the previous people used all the firewood but did not bring firewood for us. We had to purchase firewood to do our s'mores. All in all our family always has a good time but would definitely not be returning to this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I checked the toilet and couldn't find anything wrong; however I have put in a whole new toilet since I wanted a white one instead of yellow. I did get some new ceramic pans. The other non stick pans were bought this year but they tend to get scratched within 6 months. Each renter is responsable for wood to burn in the fire pit, although I do try to keep around.

A very nice house!

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect place for a reunion of college friends. The weather was good so we spent all day outside with the large grill, lawn games and a fire pit after sundown. If it had rained there's plenty of space inside for entertainment.

3 full baths, nice kitchen, lots of sleeping options, clean. Excellent choice.

Overall fantastic weekend experience!

VERY good!

  • 4 of 5

I would give this a 4.5 if there was an option. I loved loved loved the house. I used it for a Saturday all-day family reunion. There is PLENTY of room and small gathering areas that is more than what we even needed. The Owner is such a nice person and was very responsive to my phone calls.

All of the restrooms were super nice with recent upgrades. The kitchen had a combination oven, very nice granite counters and a large refrigerator. All was very clean. There is a downstairs bar area with another refrigerator in addition to the second floor kitchen. The main living area is also on the second floor with a great couch and TV for watching football.

The bedrooms all had fans which is a huge plus in my family. She provided lots of pillows and all was clean.

You can also fish off of the dock which is shared but I saw no one else out there. The streets are very narrow so getting the boat in the provided boat ramp is challenging.

Parking is also a challenge but Debra is more than accommodating in assisting you with options.

In addition, there's a fire pit and plenty of chairs and tables. Very fun to sit outside and chat.

We had an absolute blast and will DEFINITELY return to the house.

The ONLY REASONS I could not give this house a 5 star were the following:

- The yapping dogs next door were very annoying especially in the morning. However, the fan we had drowned out the noise when turned up.

- The advertisement said the house slept 10-14 so I put "14" in how many guests would be there. I was charged an additional $120 and we didn't have 14. I just threw out the number just in case there were more than I expected. When I called VRBO they said it was because of the owner and when I called the owner she said it was because of VRBO.

Regardless, I will return to the house. Thank you Debra!!!
