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 Mabank
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!

Peaceful waterfront cabin
The layout & location of the cabin was perfect for our family gathering. We would definitely consider coming back again next summer
Our family loves this place!
We love this place, it's our top favorite place to rent, the owners are very helpful and kind and the house has everything we need to make our stay awesome!
Entire property is outdated. Septic system is way undersized. The owner requests that you DO NOT flush any paper down the toilet. With 6 grown men that is certainly not sanitary. The septic was quickly full and water was running down the path to the boat dock. The 2nd bathroom is only a half bath and extremely small. So small an adult must sit sideways on the toilet. All of the doors, including closet, entrance and cabinets do not close properly. There is a grill, but it doesn't work. We filled the empty fuel tank then found out the grill is trash. The kitchen table has chairs with rollers. However the tile floor is not made for rolling chairs. One of the rollers broke off. There is a TV. But, no local channels nor cable channels. It would have been nice to see the local weather and news. It does have a DVD player. No internet connections. The dock was nice. We caught a few fish, but, mostly turtles off the dock. We called it Turtle Cove. Fishing from a boat is advisable. However, our pontoon boat would not go under the bridge for access to the lakes main body. If you are towing a boat, DO NOT go past the property. There is no place to turn around. The drive is difficult to access as well. The AC system and ceiling fans worked good.
Had a great time it was comfy and the breeze was great.. Very spacious..Everyone was comfortable and relaxed...All great vibes.. A real home away from home.
perfect getaway right in your back yard
amazing experience, such a spacious beautiful home
We enjoyed our stay.
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.
