About Deidre Evans, Property Manager
The Syzdek Family of Houston own this property. Deidre Evans of Uncertain, Texas, is our wonderful property manager.
Deidre Evans, Property Manager purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Deidre Evans, Property Manager chose Karnack
We selected this property for the amazing views and the warmth of the historic cabin. We just fell in love with this very special spot. We'd been coming to Caddo for years, enjoying the natural beauty, and deciding to make a home-away-from home here for our family and to share with our friends and guest.
What makes this Cabin unique
The views from the sunroom and back deck are just spectacular. Watching the fog rise off the surface of the water in the early morning, seeing the great herons take flight, and fishing for the big one. . . this is a really special place!

worst VRBO check in ever
This house is not numbered and the house numbers are not predictable.. A very kind neighbor allowed us the use of her phone to call Deidre. She tells us which house and said to go on in. It's locked!
An hour or more later Deidre shows up to let us in. The house is dirty, floors dirty, beds not made, kitchen dirty. We wait another hour and a half while while she does a fair job of cleaning.After a long day traveling and hours waiting we can finally go in and relax.
An hour later Deidre is back to change to toilet seat! Unreal.
We stay with VRBO often, never seen a property manager before. Now she has posted a very bad review of us for other VRBO owners to see. I was ready to let this go until I saw her review of us. To the owner of this property if want to know about us talk to your neighbor.
This was 30th wedding anniversary trip, the first day was completely ruined .
My husband & I own this property and we are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. I will talk to Deidre and get back with you.
Would you please forward the review she gave you? I do not know how to access that information.
Thank you for your feedback. We will be in touch shortly.
Beautiful views and a relaxing stay!
This property has beautiful views of the Big Cypress Bayou. In the morning we enjoyed listening to the birds and soaking in the peacefulness. In the afternoon, we had a great time watching the water skiers and boogie boarders. The home had everything we needed and was in great condition. Overall a very nice place to get away from real life!!
Wonderful place with fantastic view
Took my GF for her birthday. I had not been to Caddo Lake for 43 years. We had a great time! The home was immaculate and the views from the living room and kitchen are spectacular and look just like the picture. Property manager Deidre was the best! Rented a canoe on the first day and went into the areas that you can’t get to with a motor boat. The next day rented a John boat and explored the rivers and open water, both were rented at Johnson Ranch and Marina. Couldn’t have asked for nicer friendlier folks. In fact the folks in Karnack and Uncertain couldn’t have been nicer. For those of you with ATT cell service it is almost non-existent. Everyone that has service are on Verizon. Would definitely go back and stay here!
Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We are so glad you love our little piece of paradise! We know Deidre is great - she is such a good host. Also grateful to all the fine folks at Johnson’s Ranch and our Karnack & Uncertain neighbors for making you feel welcome. Look forward to having y’all back soon!
We came to fish off of the dock. We found that it was impossible because of Brush under the water. It was.a great place to stay.
I'm glad you enjoyed our cabin. Sorry that you struggled with the brush under the dock. If you return, you may find that the far end, towards the lake, is more open. Unfortunately, the 2016 floods carried a lot of tree limbs, etc, and it may have ended up along the banks. I'll try to get it dredged out - thank you for letting us know! We want your visit to be wonderful!
Just what we needed. A beautiful view and well stocked house on the bayou! Caddo Lake is a magical place. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.
Quiet and relaxing!! Beautiful spot on Big Cypress Bayou! Cabin was cozy! Loved the fireplace!
The cabin is great size for small family or large family! With two queen beds and fold out couch we had plenty of room to make everyone comfortable! Everything you need to cute was available! We loved our stay!!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope you will come visit the Mallard Inn again soon!
Caddo Lake is the only natural lake in the state of Texas. It is unlike any other body of water in Texas or the world. The cypress forest surrounding (and sunken in) the lake is the largest in the world. It is mystical and primeval. In fact, more Big Foot sightings are reported here than anywhere else! Most of the area is national wildlife preserve, so it remains pristine and wildlife, fishing, and birding are plentiful.
