Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend getaway at this cute A-Frame cottage on the water. Paul and a Donna were great hosts and have everything you need to be comfortable. My husband enjoyed some fishing and we both loved the quiet setting. The sunsets were breathtaking! We look forward to staying there again in the future!

Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

While it rained for two days, we still had an enjoyable and peaceful get away. The third day was spent on the dock. The cabin was great. A couple of ice trays, new coffee pot, and a new frying pan would be nice. The deck was awesome and the lake view gorgeous. We did notice, and appreciate, that the only bugs we saw were outside which can be challenging in the woods! Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your very charming property!

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We have put two ice cube trays in the freezer, but meanwhile the ice maker has started working again. Don't know why it didn't work when you were there. We have also put a new coffee maker there. Will work on getting a new frying pan. Donna

Relaxing - just what we were looking for

  • 4 of 5

The purpose of our weekend trip was to have time to relax, read a book, and rest. That was accomplished - until the really bad storm blew in Saturday night which was out of anyone's control. Because of the power outage, we left early on Sunday. We enjoyed watching the deer in the morning and evening move across the property. The facilities were very clean and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay, although the weather in February was not as nice as we would have wanted, the cabin in the woods was comfortable & clean. The owners kept the cabin well supplied with amenities, towels, TP, etc. We would rent this unit again. I would recommend a trip to Jefferson and some of the local parks nearby.

We loved it

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days around Christmas . We just wanted a couple of days break to get away from Dallas .

Beautiful setting on the lake . The owners are super nice and great hosts. They literally responded to every question I ask .

The lake house is older and could stand some updates, but it worked just fine for a couple of days away . We didn’t get to fish much because it was cold and we hope to come back in the summer and really do some fishing . We really enjoyed it . There are a bunch of great places to eat in Jefferson that are amazing !
