About the property

3 Bd/2 Ba Home W/lg Windows & Porch To Enjoy The Beautiful Sunsets Over The Lake

This cozy, 1600 sqft 3bd/2ba fully furnished home, sleeps 6 comfortably and is just the right size for the PERFECT RETREAT whether you are a large family, a few couples, or a group of guys or gals just looking to get away for some much needed and well deserved peace and quiet. Hawkins Lake has something to offer for everyone whether you have a passion for fishing, bike riding, walking/running, motorcycle riding, boating, skiing, bird watching or just want a beautiful place to relax.

This roomy lake house faces West so you will be able to enjoy beautiful sunsets over the crystal clear waters of Lake Hawkins from either the large 14' deck that runs the full length of the house, from the 65' private boat dock, or in colder weather sitting in the spacious living room by the wood burning fireplace looking out of the picture windows. There are plenty of places for 6 to 8 guests to sleep. The master bedroom, with a master bath and window overlooking the lake, has a huge king size bed, the first guest room also has a great view of the lake and contains a queen size bed, while the second guest room has a bunk bed and plenty of room for an air mattress. The Front porch has a table with umbrella and chairs, built-on bench seating, and plenty of room for barbequing or just to sit out and enjoy your morning cup of coffee. Or better yet, you fellow anglers may want to carry your coffee and a fishing pole down to the dock and start your morning off with a bit of fishing.

We're situated just minutes away from all your needs. The closest boat ramp is just a short one minute drive from the house. The public beach area at Lake Hawkins Area RV Park is just 4 miles away. The local Italian restaurant, Taste Of Italy, is right on the lake and is only a few miles down the road. The lake house is only 4 miles from HWY 80 and just a short drive from Tyler, Mineola , Gladewater, and Canton TX and lots of antique shops, restaurants, theatres, wineries, golfing, fishing, and local entertainment. Or if you prefer to stay close, there are several restaurants, a grocery store, golf course, and even a local winery right here in the Hawkins/Holly Lake, TX area.

Why James Owens chose Hawkins

We have lived in the Hawkins area for over 25 years and have fished together on this lake as well as most of the lakes in this area. But Lake Hawkins has always been our favorite. It is always so peaceful and beautiful. When we had the opportunity to buy property here we said "Why not?" Then we just felt that we were so blessed to be able to enjoy a quiet getaway now and then that we decided to share our vacation home so that others could enjoy the lake as much as we do.

Older property, but it was clean and offered a lovely lake view. Good sized house, but no internet and no cell signal, so he prepared to totally unplug. Large kitchen and huge covered front deck. A few improvements should be made for guests. The dishwasher was out of order and the can openers were dull and wouldn't open cans. Also need more forks and spoons. And the ceiling in the small bath needs attention. Nice location. Enjoyed our time there. Neighbors dogs barked a lot but that's out of the owner's control.

Very clean. Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

It was very clean. The driveway is difficult to navigate and is right before a big bend in the road but the property itself is lovely and the dock out front is PEEFECT for watching the Hawkins fireworks show on the 4th.

Wonderful place, hard to get into.

  • 4 of 5

The place is furnished comfortably and very clean. The kitchen is the best equipped I have seen, and we like to cook so that was a bonus! Beautiful view, very quiet for the most part (barking dogs next door), and a wonderful deck at the front to hang out on. So very well done!! The bug in the ointment was that the owner did not send a key location or code to get in the house!! I assumed it was open, as are most places I rent when they know when you are arriving. Probably a question I should have asked, live and learn. So we sat outside for more than two hours, I called VRBO help desk and the operator was wonderful but only had the owners phone number and it went to voice mail. (would suggest VRBO get a secondary phone number for just this kind of situation). Finally she gave me his phone number and I called and left at least 8 mesages, including texts. Very luckily one of our group had friends in a town 45 minutes away, so we went there and stayed overnight - - they were gracious at the intrusion. Better than driving 2 hours back to the city we came from. So finally at 9:30 that night the owner returned my call and said he had lost his phone. We went the next morning and got in the house, from then on smooth sailing. ( VRBO needs to keep the key code for this house in their files. I had fully paid for the 3 night stay and records would show that.) Just sayin'. Yes, some refunds were in order and the owner was quite willing to work with me on this. Do recommend this place, had a lovely time and would go again.

Lake Hawkins is within 30 miles of the bustling city of Tyler, TX, if sitting back, relaxing, fishing, or just enjoying the beautiful scenery are not your thing. Or if you prefer antiquing, we are less than 25 miles between Mineola, TX and Gladewater, TX and only 45 miles from Canton, TX, which are three of East Texas Major antique shopping destinations. And those of you who enjoy a good bottle of wine, Fairhaven Vineyards is less than 2 miles from our front door. Might I also suggest a great, current release movie, in one of the oldest theatres still in operation? Visit The Historic Select Theatre in Mineola, TX. This theatre has been in operation for over 90 years and offers a more than affordable admission fee as well as a wonderful atmosphere, great sound system, and the best service in the area.
