About Leigh Griffis

We are empty nesters who love to have fun and get away from the city when work allows! We work and live in the fast paced world of Dallas. We enjoy the outdoors; especially fishing and our favorite get aways and memories all include lake time.

Leigh Griffis purchased this house in 2014

Why Leigh Griffis chose Lake Fork

Since our favorite past times include the lake, we spent a great deal of time looking for the perfect lake and house. Knowing that Lake Fork is the best bass fishing lake in Texas and such a close location to Dallas, we knew Lake Fork is where we wanted to be! The lake is such a peaceful and serene lake without all the hustle of jet skis, wake boards, etc. This lake is a great place to get away to fish, relax, and make great memories.

What makes this house unique

We consider this house our home and have devoted a great deal of time to making it have the comforts and to be a relaxing perfect get away on Lake Fork! Our property has a private boat ramp that is exclusively ours so you will have the luxury of avoiding the long lines at the public boat ramps. Another wonderful perk to our home and location is the close proximity to Canton for all the women who love to shop.

Awesome Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked the Big Fish Lodge for her birthday weekend just because we wanted a comfortable quiet weekend getaway close to the metroplex. We were not disappointed! The house and property looked just as good as we had seen in the photos and was so comfortable. We have stayed in several other cabins and lake houses and this one was by far the nicest, well appointed, and cleanest. The weather was cold, so we just stayed inside and watched movies and read all weekend. The beds were super comfortable and it was great having a huge TV in each room! Preparing our meals was actually enjoyable with all of the amenities in the kitchen and the big grill on the patio. The views of the lake out of the huge living room windows were even more beautiful than the house itself. Fishing season would be perfect with the private boat ramp right in the backyard. We will definitely be back!

Lake Fork Texas

  • 1 of 5

The house is well maintained inside but very poorly maintained outside. The deck is beautifully built with great view but not maintained at all. There were spider webs all over. The hot tub was not working and filled with dirty water and dead bugs, which was a major disappointment for the kids. The deck was full of dirt dobbers and my 3 year old was bitten by one of them while playing outside. The amenities inside the house was decent. The oven was not clean from inside. Direct TV connection only worked for 1 night. The TV in one of the bedroom did not work at all.

Getting the refundable deposit back from the owner was a pain.

Overall not a very good experience we had hope for. We definitely not coming back to this place!

Very nice home and location on the lake. Convenient boat ramp but would benefit from a boat dock like many of the surrounding houses. No problems with the house and is exactly as advertised. If only you could have done something about the almost continuous rain :)

Beautiful Home on Lake Fork

  • 5 of 5

From the very first interaction with the homeowner, we knew this was where we wanted to stay.

The house is located in Leafy Branch down towards the dam. The fishing is great in that cove. The neighbor showed us a picture of a 9 pounder caught in there.

The house was beautiful and very clean. Everything we needed was right there. The only time we left was to get gas for the boat and a couple of bags of ice. We certainly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. We have used VRBO for our spring fishing trips for 5 years now and this house is number one out of all of the places we have stayed.

Go ahead and book it. You will not regret it.

Great location. Awesome layout. Beautifully appointed.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay for your Lake Fork getaway. The house has a beautiful location in an easily-accessible cove with it's own private launch. The layout is perfect and the house is furnished really well. The owners are responsive and accommodating and we had a wonderful stay.
