Short Description

6BR/5Bath Single Story Lake Front Home at Cedar Creek w/ boat & wave runner option


6Bedroom/5 Bath home on a cove with open water view. 3800 sqft single story home with 2 living areas, game room and 3 bedrooms that have private baths. Large yard & trees to hammock, fire pit and 96 feet of waterfront. The cove is great for fishing/swimming without the boat traffic of open water. Backyard patio has lake views, gas firepit and TV. Game Room has pool table & shuffle board. TV outside on patio for game watching. This is a great home for multi-generational family gatherings.


We love getting to know our guest and if there is any special occasion you are celebrating. We are just a text or call away before or during your stay. Check in is contactless and you will have a private code generated through Remote Lock.


This is a quiet private neighborhood with beautiful views in every direction. Many of the single family home owners are here full time making for a friendly feel around the cove. You will get a friendly wave from neighbors as they come and go on their golf carts or out for a walk. You never know-you may even see a celebrity!

We are just a few minutes into town for groceries or supplies instead of having to drive all the way around the lake to pick up something you may have forgotten.

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 20 minutes away.

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.

There are no mobile homes in our neighborhood. This might sound like a weird thing to say, but many areas of the lake are surrounded by mobile homes-we are not one of them.

Relaxing on the lake
Fort er Cove is an amazing lake getaway!! Melissa and Tony are 5 star hosts! The house is roomy comfortable and well equipped. The cove is quiet and a great place just to relax, floating in the water. My family did enjoy the jet ski, rented a pontoon boat, kayaked and paddle boarded .Fun was had by all. We would definitely rent again.

Lynne Salvaggio
This house was just as described…Plenty of space, excess of everything we needed, activities galore! We fished, kayaked, played catch, pool, shuffleboard and board games. And… a huge table for family meals! Couldn’t have been a better choice for Mom’s 90th birthday celebration! Thanks to the Fortner’s for the regular and clear communication about our stay! We had a blast!
