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!

Relaxing stay on the lake
This was a Beautiful property on the lake with a very large yard that sloped slowly into the lake making it ideal for swimming. Lots of fun water toys which kept my family busy and plenty of space to lounge including rocking chairs on the rather large covered back porch. A perfect clean and comfortable place to relax and get much needed family time in. I would highly recommend!
The house was very inviting & cozy, we had everything we needed. (Could of went with out the buckets of rain fall upon arriving) we just made the best of it.
It was nice to comeback to the house every night to relax after a full day of wedding activities.
We would definitely comeback.
Well thank you so much for enjoying the place despite the torrential downpour we had. I know the flash flooding on Friday was the worst I have ever seen! Please come back when you can enjoy all the lake has to offer and thank you for taking such great care of the property.
We had a wonderful time staying at Dana's lakeside cabin. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. We'll definitely stay again the next time we're in town!
Thank you so much for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed!
Perfect, private, beautiful lake view!
The hosts thought of everything. Comfortable beds, quaint, clean home. Perfect for a young family. I can’t imagine how much we would have spent paying a-la-cart for all the amenities. We hardly noticed the chilly, windy temperatures with all the fun lake toys and gorgeous view to enjoy.
Thank you so much for enjoying the lake property! We try to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone and give you the best bang for the buck. I hope you can come in the summer when everyone can lounge on floats in the water and soak up the sun.
Would definitely rent again.
The place was lovely inside. Newly renovated, clean and great location on the lake. Unfortunately, the weather did not allow for outdoor activities. The temps were in the 30's with rain. We had come down for a 60th birthday and our host left a bottle of wine and party supplies.
Oh I did not like the weather that week! I thought about you and your friends and hate that you missed out on what really makes the lake house special! That’s one thing about this Texas weather. I’m glad the time spent with family and friends was enough and appreciate you enjoyed the warmth of the house! Come on back!

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.
