Vintage Lakefront Cottage, Newly Renovated, Private Dock, Firepit, 2 Kayaks!

Lakefront cottage with kitchen and patio
This waterfront property includes use of dock, firepit and 2 kayaks. GRIF's GETAWAY is a cozy, fully-furnished vintage cottage that has been recently renovated, with 2 bedrooms and 1 large 4 pc bath that includes everything you will need to get away for a weekend or longer to re-energize yourself! Bedrooms include antique queen beds with foam toppers and vintage linens (you won't want to get out of bed!), plenty of closet space with shelves to hold your suitcases/belongings with an additional queen sofa sleeper in the living room. Foam topper, linens and blankets also included for the sleeper sofa. Total sleeping to accommodate 6 comfortably. Surrounded by trees, the calmness of the outdoors and tranquility overlooking beautiful Lake Hawkins is unmatched! Watch the sun rise over the lake with your morning coffee, then wind down in the evening having smores at the firepit as the sun sets. Enjoy the private boat dock for securing a boat, or to fish, swim, kayak or just chill overlooking the lake. Outdoor furniture (table/chairs/umbrella) on the house deck and on the dock provided. Includes a Weber Gas Grill and a Weber Charcoal grill on the deck if you choose to cook or enjoy the fully stocked kitchen inside. Taking a walk each morning is a treat! Everyone on the lake is so friendly and looking out for each other. Vintage charm is everywhere from the painted wood floor living room with fireplace, beadboard walls/ceiling, multiple quilts throughout, bathroom sink vanity and other decor. Eat in kitchen for 2 or dining table for 6 available. A well-behaved pet is welcome with a $50 fee. You'll want "our place" to be "your place" for your next getaway! Lake Hawkins is a very clear, spring-fed lake with beautiful winding roads and hills - perfect for walking, bicycling or motorcycling. Great nature-watching, including hawks, bald eagles, ducks, grey herons - all kind of wild birds, deer, foxes, squirrels and rabbits. Good bass, crappie, and bream fishing! Bring your own boat, or rent a pontoon boat from our neighbor, Allen Sanders. Contact information can be found in the Welcome Book which you will find in the cottage when you arrive. A public beach at Lake Hawkins County Park is down the road, just a few minutes away. GRIF's GETAWAY at Lake Hawkins is 15 miles from Mineola, TX on Highway 80 West, which has unique shops and great places to eat. The Mineola Nature Preserve is over 2900 acres of pristine nature and the winery next door is a bonus! If you head down Highway 80 East, you will arrive at Gladewater, known as the Antique Capital of East Texas (one of our favorite places to spend the day shopping and eating). A fabulous Italian restaurant, Rima's Taste of Italy, is within walking distance of the cottage and is absolutely a must! Additional information regarding things to do, places to visit and eat is supplied in the Welcome book. Enjoy your stay at GRIF's GETAWAY to relax, restore, and renew! Memories to be made and the sunset over the lake are priceless!

Charming Cottage
The cottage had charming vintage furniture and accents--just we like. It was clean, all the appliances worked well. Neighborhood was very quiet. Lots of things to do in the surrounding communities. We will try to return in the spring. No disappointments here.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect fall getaway
The fire pit, kayaks, board games, and beautiful setting provided balance of family fun and relaxation. We hope to go back!

5/5 Excellent

Very relaxing
Really enjoyed our stay. All new touches inside, very clean. Love the dock, kayak and fire pit. Lake is beautiful. Best pizza ever from the Italian place nearby. We will be back.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway
My family took a short trip to get out of the city for the weekend. My kids did need internet for school and it worked great. The rest of the time we fished, went on kayaks, and visited Tyler State Park and the Tyler Rose Garden. Really cozy little place. Excellent communication with owners; they obviously care about their guests. Thank you for sharing it with us!

5/5 Excellent

Very Quiet Stay
We had a wonderful time! The cabin was well stocked with everything! Loved how quiet the area is and how lovely the house was. Yes, it is a bit older and has older smells, but! It was still amazing stay and I definitely plan on staying there again!
