About Hobert (Hobie) Lawrence

I grew up around the Reelfoot Lake area. Moved up north to work in the steel mills. After retiring, I moved back home.

Hobert (Hobie) Lawrence purchased this house in 1985

Why Hobert (Hobie) Lawrence chose Hornbeak

This property was available about the time of my retirement. It has a wonderful location and the fishing is great.

What makes this house unique

The best sunsets off of the deck. We have had many great times out on the deck with family and friends

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed at Hobie's over the holiday week The house is centrally located & very accommodating. We enjoyed grilling outside and spending quality family time out on the huge deck. The daily sunsets were something out of a magazine. We have made reservations to return next year.

Family fun at Reelfoot

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Hobie's cabin. The home is clean and the view is great. There are lots of beds, for any families that want to meet together. The kitchen table only seats 4, which was fine for our group; however there are lots of tables on the deck for everyone to eat together. The deck goes right over the water, and I'm sure there's good fishing at times in the year; however for this trip we didn't even get a nibble. I'm sure it was due to the over abundance of food for the fish -- bugs and minnows in the water.

Beautiful, relaxing sunsets! Wonderful community. (Don't leave your boat on the lake overnight!) We look forward to going back again soon.

Ideal Fisherman and Hunter's lake cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is so peaceful. The view off the deck is amazing. We rented this place to relax while being at a baseball tournament in Union City. My boys are all hunters and fishermen and loved hanging out on the deck and doing some fishing during the down time of the baseball tournament. It will definitely sleep a lot of bodies and beds were comfy. Kitchen is stocked with minimal necessities - pots/pans, microwave, plates, silverware, coffee pot. Weird set up for bathrooms - 1 shower, 1 sink w/ toilet (located attached to bedroom), 1 full bath. But with boys it works fine. It does have WiFi but not the greatest strength as we had trouble connecting laptops to check in with work, and the signal reaching out to the main living room was weak. But really when you rent this gem it is for the deck view and the lake fishing and hunting opportunities. If we are ever back in the area, we would definitely rent again. Thanks Hobie!
