Need a quiet, relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of city living? Vacation away from the crowds at the Mill Creek Lodge on a 30-acre private fishing lake in Northeast Texas only 75 minutes from Shreveport/Bossier City LA in case you want to try your luck at one of the "boats", a 2 1/2 hour drive east of Dallas and 20 minutes north of Jefferson, TX. Also if you are attending a concert at Music City Texas, we are only 4 miles down the road.
The Mill Creek Lodge consists of a 1930's era LOG CABIN, which sleeps up to 6, and a COTTAGE #936787 (click here to see) built in 1998, which sleeps up to 4. Both properties overlook the private fishing lake.
This log cabin has a fully furnished kitchen, living/dining room, bedroom, bathroom and large screened porch overlooking the lake. Along with coffee, sugar and creamer, bedding and linens are also provided. You simply need to bring your food, clothing and personal items to enjoy the tranquility of the lake and it’s surroundings.
The cabin sleeps up to 6 with a full bed and queen bed in the bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room. Inside the cabin is a non-smoking area but the screened porch gives ample space and protection from the weather for smoking. There is one television that gets only local channels. However, if you really want to watch other stations, bring your satellite receiver and card and we can provide a portable dish. There will also be a DVD player with several children’s movies available to watch or you can bring your own movies.
Outside, there is a gas grill and fire pit but you will need to bring your own firewood for the fire pit. There are 2 concrete picnic tables available and several lawn chairs. Outside games include badminton, lawn darts and horseshoes (you will need to set up the nets). Indoor games include cards, dice and several board games. There are also books for reading.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WATER IS APPROXIMATELY 25-30 FEET FROM THE CABIN DOOR WITH NO BARRIER BETWEEN THE CABIN AND THE LAKE. PARENTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN WILL NEED TO RECOGNIZE THIS IS NOT A CHILD FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT AND CHILDREN MUST BE MONITORED VERY CLOSELY AT ALL TIMES.
Please note also that this is a FISHING ONLY lake. No swimming allowed.
