Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything we needed was right here. We were 4 adults but next time we would love to bring the kids. The water is perfectly close so we had our breakfast down there! We have also decided to leave our tiki lights for the next families to enjoy outside like we did. We thought that if each time we come we leave a little something behind for the next families and make it like a tradition. Can't wait to come back! God bless!

Home style vacation cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th cabin we have stayed near Lake Texoma in the past year. It is the best cabin of all considering what it has offered and where it is located.

The cabin is spacious with two bedrooms and two full baths. It also has two window beds which my two elder ones love to read and sleep there. The kitchen prepared everything you need for cook from veggie oil to wrapping paper. The bathrooms also equipped with all kinds of shampoo, wash, and enough towels for use. There are washer and dryer on site in the sun room which is a big plus after a whole day playing on beach.

The cabin is located about a few minutes walk to the beach park. There is a long beach road there for you to chose the best play spot. We ended up drive to the far site of the beach road as there is a very nice private area for kayak and swimming. We all had great fun there.

One highlight on the trip is that we met 3 neighbor dogs who wandering on the backyard. These dogs are very well behaved and trained. My kiddos and dog made friends with them in just a few seconds. We loved to sit on back porch and look at these green woods watching kids and dogs play.

It is such a wonderful and relax weekend getaway! I am sure we will consider coming back in the future.

Cabin was beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This log cabin is adorable and has ALL the extras you need while out of town. Communication with the owners was fantastic, they are very responsive. AC was nice and cool, we enjoyed the large lot for our boat and there is a Dollar Store literally 3 minutes up the road where we bought all of our food & such for the week. Very happy with our stay.

Cozy cabin close to the lake. Everything there you'd need except the food of coarse.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and the air conditioner wasn't working, I called Jim the owner and he had someone over within 30 mins working on it and even offered us another cabin for the night. Great people to rent from. We really enjoyed the location and the cabin. Our grand daughter was with us and we had a great time!! Absolutely would stay here again!
