This two bedroom two bath home sits on three waterfront lots on the Flat Creek Bay side of Lake Palestine about two miles from Brown's Landing and within a stone's throw of Flat Creek Marina. You will enjoy the morning sunrises from the Piney woods Bungalow. The property is level, large and full of trees....especially East Texas Pines. Relax on the swing while watching the waves come in on the shoreline, or lay down and take a nap under the large Sweet Gum and Cottonwood trees. The large shoreline is shallow enough to enjoy little feet splashing without the fear of a sudden drop off. The water level gently increases outward to allow for more lounging and playing, but don't worry you can drive your boat right to the shoreline as well-which comes in handy if a storm suddenly arises. The property has a brand new covered pier that has plenty of room for enjoying the water and an open deck for sun bathing and for those serious fishing casters! We have electric down by the pier with a dusk until dawn light pole that is great for enjoying time by the water at night. The new outdoor smoker/ grill is perfect for laying a brisket in and going for a long fishing trip. Four white beach chairs surround a fire pit for the cool nights, or s'mores and hot dog cook outs. We provide campfire wood! There are many amenities that is included in this gem at no additional cost that really give you the most bang for your hard earned money. Inside you will find a newly remodeled open concept living space that is large enough for your family but yet cozy enough to make this trip about family and friends time together. Enjoy games, books, wifi, cooking, and movies. The master bedroom has a queen bed with 32" flat screen and overlooks the lake. The second bedroom has a new full bed, and a twin trundle bed with a 32" flat screen tv. The large sectional couch also houses a queen bed sleeper, and there are linens to accommodate everyone. There are two full bathrooms with shower and tub, and a full size kitchen with all the essentials needed to prepare your meals. This quaint lake house has all you need to experience Texas on the lake! Leave your city life behind and indulge in lake life!

About Dana Wallace
You might classify Brian and I as the typical 80s kids. Born in 1971 we were raised in East Texas as low to middle income families who believed in hard work and integrity. We both attended Palestine High School. Our vacations consisted of time spent at the lake enjoying a picnic, fishing, and skiing. Brian has worked for Walmart for over 20 years and I have worked for an oilfield service company for more than 20 years also. We now live in the small town of Arp. We love to visit our lake house, go to the mud park, and visit Colorado and any beaches. One day we may retire to Lake Palestine and enjoy the little things in life. Our dream is to flip houses and have our own business doing that.
Dana Wallace purchased this House in 2016
Why Dana Wallace chose Henderson County
When I first drove up to this property for sale I could see its full potential. The lake views are panoramic. No property has a big fence or boathouse blocking the view. The shoreline reminded me of my childhood when we would go the lake and park on the shore and walk it collecting treasures I found. The grass is thick and soft and when you are at the water it is so peaceful. You can see a storm coming for miles! We have thoroughly enjoyed seeing the progress of our renovations and updates. I plan on making this property like a garden of Eden(in my mind at least)
What makes this House unique
The unique benefits to this property is how much land you have on the water. There is room to play horseshoes, washers, and volleyball at the same time. Being able to wade into the water is a perk especially with kids or grandkids. The area is sandy and shallow at the shore. You can walk out about fifty yards from the pier and still not be over your head. If you are bringing a boat you can pull your boat right into the shore so need to worry about rough waters. There is a public boat ramp at Flat Creek bridge less than a mile away as well as the community ramp *which at this time the water is too low on it*. The neighbors are friendly and a group of geese come to the house for treats every morning. You can fit 8 people comfortably so this is a bargain with a view!

This place has everything you need inside and out. The covered pier was great when we had a few showers come through. You will definately catch a ton of fish off the pier. The town is close enough if you need something you forgot. House is very clean and comfy. Hope to stay again next year!
I hope you do stay again! Thank you for your review. The covered pier has been a big hit for lounging and fishing. I’m glad you guys caught a ton of fish and enjoyed some showers because it’s a different experience on the water watching it come across the lake.
BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND WONDERFUL FAMILY GETAWAY!
Clean, well-supplied and superior attention to detail! These owners really care about your vacation experience and it shows! We recently stayed here with our family and cannot wait to return. The home was very clean and the bathrooms, kitchen and bedrooms were very well supplied to meet the needs of our family of 6. The owner is responsive and eager to answer any questions and the neighbors are friendly and welcoming, but not bothersome. The lake shore is pretty much perfect! Sandy bottom, clean, shallow entry for young ones and the new lighted pier with gazebo and fan is a perfect spot in which to spend most of the day. Many fun lake toys are provided, including a huge water mat, kayak, paddle boat, lots of inflatables, life jackets, etc. We very much enjoyed the breezes and views from under the gazebo at all times of the day! We highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun couples or family getaway on beautiful Lake Palestine!
I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed your laketime and had a great getaway! That is what we all work hard for! I try to treat all my guests like I would like to be treated when spending my money. Rest and relaxation starts when you open that door-not just the water. Thank you for taking such great care of the property and come back soon!
Everything you could ask for and then some!!!
From the moment we first booked this place we and my wife knew right away we made the right decision, not just because of the beautiful place, but Dana the owner. All of our questions were answered right away and all of our needs met. It was a pleasant experience the entire way through. As for the place... a little slice of Heaven! Absolutely beautiful! The pier is perfect for fishing, and we caught plenty of fish. The swimming area is perfect for kids, as the water doesn't get deep until you swimm far out past pier. Very quiet place with plenty of space , and very friendly neighbors. The house was cozy and had everything we needed . Dana even set up some birthday decorations, which was appreciated. I could go on for hours about the place. Everything was perfect, and we will be back.
Wow! I am so humbled by your kind words. That is the experience I want every guest to have! I love having returning guests-that means I’m doing my job. Come back soon!
The bungalow was comfortably furnished and decorated to reflect the beach/lake. The kitchen was modern and had everything for cooking inside or outside. And most importantly, Dana personalized our visit with treats for our dog, snacks for us and made recommendations to local restaurants. ..she even offered to make reservations at one of her favorites spots. It was a great stay!
Thank you guys for the wonderful compliment! I always enjoy hearing that my guests have a good time. That's what makes owner vacation rentals special to me-that you picked my property to stay and I can make it more personal than a commercial stay. I am continuing to add more things to make a stay at the Bungalow the best deal for the $$$$. Thank you for taking care of the property also. Come back soon!
Great weekend house
Spent the weekend with my sons, 10 and 8, and my father-in-law. Had a great time. The house was very clean, and there was plenty to do. Spent most of the time fishing and kayaking from what appears to be a brand-new dock with lighting and an overhead fan. I would do it again.
I am so glad you guys enjoyed your time doing exactly what a lake house is for! Please come back and see us as now there is a brand new outdoor sectional sofa out on the pier! Later we will be adding a fire pit as well.
Couldn't Have Been Better!
I recently stayed at this house with some old friends that go back to high school. We could not have found a nicer place to relax and enjoy ourselves. The setting is beautiful and the house has everything you could possibly need, including a back porch facing the lake. There is a new dock with lights, an outdoor fire place and an outdoor cooking grill/oven. Lots of land, majestic trees, a kayak to use, horse shoes, and on and on. Dana, the owner, was very easy to work with and very accommodating and kind. If you are looking for a great place to spend some time and forget about the world and its problems, this is the place!
Ken I’m so glad you all enjoyed your get together! It’s people like you that make me happy to share the lake life experience. Please come back soon we will have even more to enjoy!
