About Linda Walker and Leon Walker

I purchased this property as a single woman looking for the peace and tranquility I always felt near the lake. After living in the home about a year and a half I married and moved into my husband's home just down the street. Now I enjoy sharing this home with others who enjoy a lake and all that a lake has to offer. I am a retired nurse, mother of three grown children and Nana to 6 grandchildren. My husband has owned multiple rental properties for many years so he is a big help to me in this venture. We enjoy fishing, swimming, and pulling grandchildren on water skis. I also enjoy being out on the lake in my rowboat during the quiet times on the lake. The birds and wildlife change with the seasons and we delight in waiting for the return of the various ducks in the summer and the beautiful white pelicans in the winter.

Linda Walker and Leon Walker purchased this house in 2003

Why Linda Walker and Leon Walker chose Cedar Creek Lake

I purchased this property for the beautiful waterfront and the livability of the home. While spacious, it is cozy, warm and very easy to live in. The neighbors are congenial and friendly. Being able to see the lake from most of the rooms makes for a very enjoyable and restful day. I love eating lakeside every day!

Very comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We make several trips a year to Cedar Creek to fish and we rented this house for the first time two weeks ago. This house was perfect for us. We launched my boat at the private subdivision ramp which is very near the house. The boat house with boat lift made it easy to come and go from fishing. We could come in from fishing and pull up right behind the house and in a few steps we could be in the house having lunch and enjoying a beautiful lake view. The owners are very helpful and live just up the street. We enjoyed it so much two weeks ago that we have it reserved next week for another fishing adventure. This house is a great value for the price and we plan to stay there on all future trips to CC.

We enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had planned a fishing trip to the lake and wanted a clean place to stay next to the water. We were very satisfied with this quirky little rustic place. We enjoyed the 30 second walk to the dock and the back porch view. The kitchen was fully equipped. Linda, the owner, was very attentive to our needs. Our stay was a good experience and we will return.

The listing shows it as a 3/2. It is only 1.5 bathrooms. I wouldn't have even looked at it had I known it was not 2 bathrooms.

Great time with family and friends

It was more spacious than we thought it would be. It is a great value as well and the owners are extremely helpful.

Great time at the lake

  • 5 of 5

Lake house great for family. Lot's of space, having the W/D was a real convenience. Kitchen had all needed cooking equipment...only brought my electric skillet and crock pot, but not really needed, I just enjoy cooking. Swimming off the dock was a real hit with the boys. Being TV and internet free was a great for family board games and story telling. The DVD screen more that sufficed--I actually enjoyed Harry Potter, Star Wars and other adventure flicks. Nice neighbor, quiet area, lovely spot.
