Cedar Creek Lake is the 5th largest lake in Texas. Excellent fishing, boating, 4th of July Air Show, and lots of shops including First Monday Canton Trade Days just 25 minutes away. We are close to town so you won't need to drive 30-45 minutes around the lake if you forgot something.
The Tiki Hut at the marina and Vernon's are popular waterfront restaurants accessible by boat. Our location is just a few minutes to Walmart, Brookshire's and local restaurants.
We are committed to protecting our properties which is why we've partnered with Know Your Guest, the leading vacation rental guest-screening provider. Please note that to complete your booking, you will need to verify your details and ID.
Contactless entry is available through Remote Lock. You will receive your door codes the week before check in.
High speed internet and 3 Smart TV's are located throughout the house. Bring your Netflix, Hulu or other streaming passwords.
The downstairs living space spans over 40 feet wide so you will never feel cramped even with a large group. The kitchen is updated with stainless steel appliances, cookware, dishes and even a coffee bar (so bring your favorite K cups). There is no need to run to the store since the built in ice machine produces lots of ice per day. There is a full size refrigerator stocked with your basic condiments, ground coffee, and a wine rack which includes your first bottle complimentary with your stay. You will find a large pantry to store all your groceries. There is also an extra full size fridge for extra storage of groceries during your stay.

On the third floor you will find a giant loft area with sleeping for 14, a flat screen smart TV and games. There is also a screened in porch off of the 3rd floor perfect for watching all the lakeside activities or looking out at the stars. Sleeping arrangements include 3 queen pull out Ashley sofa sleepers on the third floor and 2 twin beds in addition to the two bunk beds with queen beds on bottom and an XL twin on top of each. Every bed has Simmons Plush Top mattresses with sheets and bedding provided. This property accommodates a max of 24 in beds/pullouts but there is still room for cots/blow up mattresses if you have a larger group.
The private boat dock is yours for enjoyment during your stay. There is one boat slip that holds up to a 22 foot boat fully covered and one jet ski slip with lifts if you bring or rent watercraft. Please let us know if you are bringing a boat and need the lift. We will do our best to accommodate if we have time and room to move our boat out for you. Otherwise there are mooring whips and boat cleats for you to tie onto at the dock. There is also an area to clean your fish out on the dock. The over sized upstairs dock area with string lights is another wonderful place to enjoy the panoramic views during your stay. Sunrise and Sunsets over the lake are amazing! We have just installed stairs with a handrail from the dock to the water to make getting in and out of the lake easy for people of all ages without having to climb a narrow slippery ladder.
We have a 22 foot tritoon boat that we rent out on a case by case basis if your group meets our insurance requirements. If you are interested in using this please let us know when you book your reservation. We include a tube and wake board if you are interested in getting out into the open water. If you are bringing your own watercraft, please let us know so we can best accommodate you with details of where to launch and give you water level details.
High speed internet and 3 Smart TV's are located throughout the house. Bring your Netflix, Hulu or other streaming passwords for even more entertainment options. If you have stayed at this property before, you will find even more reasons to fall in love and visit over and over again! There is also a DVD with a variety of movies available on site.
The property has a new retaining wall with over 300 feet of concrete on top. This is perfect for fishing all along the property.

We are within a 5 minute drive to the closest Brookshire's grocery store and a super Walmart for any shopping on the way into town or during your stay. Location is a bonus for this home because you have the benefit of being on an almost private point on the lake with easy access to fast food restaurants such as Chicken Express, Whataburger, Starbucks, Subway and sit down dining like Chili’s. Vernon’s, W354 Upscale dining, China Cafe, Jalapeño Tree or many other local favorites.
