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 say Brian and I are 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 Chandler
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!

The Pictures are Deceiving
The entry to the subdivision is lined with stray dogs and unfinished and abandoned trailer homes. Once we arrived, the trailer home seemed clean and inviting with a bottle of wine waiting. However, it wasn't long until we found towels smelling of mildew and a neighbor who just would not leave. Nice guy, but super lonely and very drunk for two nights in a row. We just wanted a quiet weekend to ourselves and definitely missed out on that. For the price paid and product received -- not a fan.
It is a sad day when I have to defend my property because someone’s deposit was legitimately taken away. You lied and did not inform me that you would be bringing not one-but three large dogs into my home. I require a pet deposit but you decided to ignore that. I pride myself and by others reviews you will find my property immaculate with fresh linens and towels. You left your 3 dogs unattended in my home for more than 5 hours leaving permanent damage to my new floors while you went to a wedding. You even asked me to give you a late check out because you and your guests were having so much fun-which I allowed. I cleaned the property for three days to get it ready for the next guest. You are the type of renter I am afraid that makes vrbo owners not want to open up their home for a great experience. I am not one to Judge about trailer houses but my home is a pier and biem and has been totally renovated. My neighbors are welcoming and not intrusive but you invited him over and he obviously felt welcome.
Clean and comfortable with everything you need.
I traveled to Tyler to visit family and stayed at this lake house. I was very pleased with my stay. The grounds were very large and my 2 children (2&4) had plenty to discover. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a great meal. The bedrooms are a good size and the beds are comfy. Bathrooms super clean. I also made use of their smoker, kayak, and pedal boat and there was plenty of wood for the fire pit. I really enjoyed sitting on the rocking chairs on the back porch in the morning with a cup of coffee watching the sun come up over the lake. Only difficulty I had was getting my mom who is in a wheelchair around but it was not a big deal. Wish we could of stayed longer. Thank you Dana!
I’m so glad you guys enjoyed your stay and were able to visit family. I appreciate how well you left the property too! We have purchased a golf cart which could make it easier for guests with mobility issues to enjoy the property even more. The bathrooms unfortunately are not wide enough for wheelchair access at this time but is definitely something to bring up for the bathroom renovation I’m hoping for next year.
If I could give it 100 stars I would!!!
From the moment we walked through the door, our group of girls could not stop saying "wow" and "oh my gosh, look how beautiful" for about an hour. Not only is it an absolute beautiful place, but the home itself is just perfect for a girls weekend. Cozy, clean and with everything needed to make the weekend possible. From inside the house to outside, every little thing was perfect. Neighbors are very welcoming and one of them even gave us wood to cook delicious stakes in the grill. The place was so relaxing that we enjoyed the occasional nap by the pier as well as the porch and though the weather was cool and water freezing, it did not stop us from getting in the lake. The water was so calm and the area around the pier was shallow with sandy bottom, perfect for everyone. The only downside of this place is leaving. We are definitely recommending this wonderful place to everyone we know. Thanks for the unforgettable trip!
Ana thank you so much for such an amazing review! My goal is for every guest to feel special and that they picked the right place for their getaway! I love it when I get a little info so that I can make it a little extra special. Thank you for taking care of the property and my wonderful card! Please come back and stay again.
Fun fun fun lakehouse!
This is lakehouse has so much to do! Our family loved it. We took advantage of all the toys available to us. Paddle boat, kayak, fire pit, lake mat, fishing, swimming and relaxing on the gorgeous dock. What a beautiful view to enjoy. The owner Dana is so thoughtful and left us treats to enjoy and lots of information about the area. We will definitely return as soon as we can!
Thank you so
Much for the kind words. I am so glad you guys enjoyed yourselves. Thank you for taking such good care of the property I would welcome you back anytime!
Great house. Has everything you need to get away, relax and have fun.
Thank you for your review of the property! I am glad your needs were met by the Piney Woods Bungalow! I hope you enjoyed getting out of the city and enjoying East Texas!
The property is on a street with very low traffic! Sweet!
The furnishings are very nice and comfortable. Plenty of towels and the beds so comfortable. A great place for kids. A little pricey though.
Thank you, we so enjoyed relaxing on this spacious property and the views from the back porch.
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the property. 200.00 a night for a complete house that sleeps 8 right on the lake is a bargain in my opinion. And where else can you bring 3 dogs to galavant around and enjoy the property as well?
This property is located in Parkside Shores subdivision/community. It is dated back when Lake Palestine was new. It is considered the west part of lake Palestine. A newly renovated marina is less than a mile from Parkside. This property is within Flat Creek Bay. It is a typical old lake community. There are different types of homes in the neighborhood including trailer houses. The neighborhood is a quiet community and very laid back.
