About the property

A beautiful house in a beautiful setting where you can getaway from it all!

Lakeview Canoe is a chalet style cabin, remodeled in 2016 to make the inside as incredible as the outside surroundings! One of the only rentals on Lake Cypress Springs, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin sleeps 8 and includes a private dock and boat slip! Nestled lakeside amongst huge trees, the open family room and kitchen area, with a real mounted canoe, has floor to ceiling windows allowing unobstructed views of the lake. Just feet from the water, bring your water toys and fishing pole for hours of lake fun, relax on the deck or dock and take in the views! Note: We also own the property next door, 'Camp Canoe', which sleeps 6; check out that listing (VRBO #1062646).

The common areas on the main level include a new fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, breakfast bar and a dining area. Also on the first floor is a family room with a flat screen TV, two bedrooms with queen beds and a large remodeled bathroom with a washer and dryer.

Upstairs, the huge bunk room, with new flooring, has two sets of built-in twin bunk beds as well as a separate TV area and a remodeled bathroom with a tub.

Just outside on the large deck with great water views is a patio table, bench seating and a charcoal barbecue grill. Two kayaks are available; a three person kayak and a youth kayak and several life jackets are provided. A fire pit with seating and a hammock are steps away on the lawn.

The fully renovated house has all new furniture and fixtures, fresh paint and a clean and modern, but cozy flair. Guests provide their sheets, pillowcases and towels; blankets and pillows are provided. A housekeeping fee for cleaning the property after check-out will be included. Sorry, but per the Homeowner's Association Guidelines, no pets are allowed.

Lake Cypress Springs was named by D Magazine as one of the “Best Kept Secrets” in Texas. At 3400 acres and 7 miles long, the spring-fed lake is located in the East Texas piney woods of Franklin County. It is situated between the towns of Mount Vernon, Winnsboro, Pittsburg, and Mount Pleasant.

Only 90 minutes from Dallas, the property is easy to get to and is in the private, gated community of Barker Creek. Boat ramps are just minutes away to launch water toys, and the expansive private dock is ready for incredible fishing, fun swimming and equipped with a slip for your boat (25 feet long by 9 feet wide). No trailers inside the community, but trailer parking is available in the field outside the gate. Sorry, there is nowhere to rent boats on the lake.

About Carla Everett

Our family loves Lake Cypress Springs and we would like to share this amazing place with you. We live in a north Dallas suburb and love the easy escape to lake life!

Carla Everett purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Carla Everett chose Scroggins

After visiting friends at Lake Cypress Springs, we knew we had to be a part of this beautiful place! We purchased the Lakeview Canoe property in the fall of 2015 and started renovations. Then, in early 2017 when the property next door became available, we decided to do it again and began updating Camp Canoe!

The picturesque views, water activities and the slower pace of life have made for happy memories with family and friends. The small town quaintness of the nearby communities are fun to explore, yet offer all the conveniences we need.

What makes this cabin unique

Note that Camp Canoe and Lakeview Canoe are two of only a few rental properties available on Lake Cypress Springs. Both this property and the one next door, Camp Canoe (vrbo #1062646) can be rented together for larger group gatherings, sleeping up to 14!

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is awesome! The view is amazing! I know this area very well as I spent many years fishing lake Cypress and Bob Sandlin in the 80's and 90's. I spent a lot of time visiting my grandparents who lived in Kings Country and in Scroggins. I love being outdoors in the country away from all the traffic and concrete and crowds! Will be back in the near future. My kids loved having a campfire. We had it burning continually the whole time we were there. Caught a couple of black bass too! Did not want to leave. LOL Thank you so much for having us!

This place had it all! The house was beautifully updated and more than accommodating. The kids loved the space upstairs and thought it was cool to have their own area. The best part was getting to walk out the backdoor and run and jump off the spacious dock. That kept the kids entertained for hours. We also enjoyed being able to fish right off the dock. I brought two kayaks with me and with the addition of their kayaks, the whole family got to kayak. That was a blast! We will definitely be back to this place. Ultimate relaxation....ultimate family time!
